Using Cash Coupons

Updated at: Dec 15, 2020 GMT+08:00

After getting a cash coupon, you can use it to deduct cloud service fees within the usage limit.


  • Cash coupons have certain usage conditions. You can go to the Coupons page in the Billing Center to view the usage limits of a cash coupon. For details about what these usage limits mean, see Cash Coupon Usage Limits.
  • You cannot withdraw money from, transfer, or request invoices for cash coupons.
  • You cannot use cash coupons to clear existing arrears.
  • If both discounts and cash coupons are applicable, discounts are used first.
  • Cash coupons will not be refunded in case of resource unsubscriptions or specification downgrades.

    However, if you unsubscribe from resources that failed to be provisioned or from a renewal period that has not taken effect, cash coupons are refunded.


  • Purchasing prepaid products (such as yearly/monthly/one-off products and the prepaid part of reserved instance products):

    Select a cash coupon on the order payment page. (Only one cash coupon can be used.)

    The system automatically presents all available cash coupons. If no cash coupons are presented on the order payment page, no cash coupons under your account meet the requirements.

  • Purchasing postpaid products (such as pay-per-use products and the postpaid part of reserved instance products):
    • For postpaid customers whose bills are settled monthly, fees are automatically deducted when the bill of a month is generated on the third day of the next month.

      Automatic deduction rule: If there is any cash coupon that meets the usage conditions and the cash coupon has taken effect in the month when the postpaid product is used, it will be automatically used to deduct the bill fees. Multiple cash coupons can be used.

    • For prepaid customers, fees are automatically deducted in quasi-real time.
