Pay-As-You-Go

Your MPS bills contain only the fees incurred for using media processing services such as transcoding and remuxing. Fees for COS are not included. MPS supports daily and monthly billing for the pay-as-you-go mode. The default billing cycle is daily. If you want to switch to monthly billing, please contact our business team.

Daily Billing

Each day, MPS calculates your usage in the previous day, sends you the bill, and deducts the fee from your account balance. You can view your usage details in the console. The daily billing cycle is used by default. If you want to change to monthly billing, please contact our business team.
Billing cycle: Daily. The fees incurred each day are billed and deducted from your account balance between 12:00 and 18:00 the following day.
Billing mode: Pay-as-you-go.

Billing details
Billing rule: Transcoding services are billed daily based on the codec used and the output resolution and video duration.
Billing formula: Video transcoding fees = Output video duration (minutes) x Unit price (USD/minute)
Each transcoding task is billed only once. If the duration is less than one minute, it will be counted as one minute.
Billing examples
Suppose you used the transcoding service in the Mumbai region on January 1 and generated two videos. One was 60 minutes long and had a resolution of 2560 x 1440 px. The other was 100 minutes long and had a resolution of 1600 x 980. The codec used was H.264. On January 2, the transcoding fee deducted would be as follows: 0.0355 (USD/minute) x 60 (minutes) + 0.023 (USD/minute) x 100 (minutes) = 4.43 USD

Audio/Video Enhancement

Video enhancement is billed according to the duration of the output file. The unit price (USD/min) is the same regardless of the codec.

Billing examples: Assume that you used the watermark removal service of MPS on January 1. Two videos were generated, each 100 minutes long, and their resolutions were 2560 x 1440 and 1280 x 640 respectively. On January 2, the fee billed for January 1 would be as follows:
For the 2560 x 1440 video, the unit price for 2K (short side ≤ 1440 px) applies, which is 0.1 USD/min.
For the 1280 x 640 video, the unit price for HD (480 px ≤ short side ≤ 720 px) applies, which is 0.03 USD/min. Watermark removal fee on January 1 = 0.1 (USD/min) x 100 (min) + 0.03 (USD/min) x 100 (min) = 13 USD
