From Pay-per-Use to Yearly/Monthly

Updated at: Nov 30, 2021 GMT+08:00

You can change the billing mode of a resource from pay-per-use to yearly/monthly. Doing so will create an order. After you pay the order, the yearly/monthly subscription takes effect immediately.

For example:

At 2018/09/21 09:25:34, a customer purchases a pay-per-use ECS. At 2018/10/15 10:30:34, the customer changes the ECS's billing mode to yearly/monthly and a change-to-yearly/monthly order is generated. After the customer pays the order, the ECS immediately enters the yearly/monthly billing mode.


  • Only those resources in the Enabled status can be changed to yearly/monthly.
  • The billing mode of solution portfolio products cannot be changed from pay-per-use to yearly/monthly.
  • Spot instances do not support change from pay-per-use to yearly/monthly or from yearly/monthly to pay-per-use.
