  • How does billing work in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure?

    Oracle Cloud Infrastructure uses universal credits that can be consumed by any Oracle cloud service. You can choose from two purchase models: pay for the credits that you consumed with Pay As You Go (PAYG), or prepay for cloud credits with Monthly Flex and get volume discounting. If you're new to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, you can start with PAYG and convert to Monthly Flex when you have a better idea of your consumption pattern.

    Oracle Cloud Infrastructure has built-in tools to help you set up and track budgets, analyze and itemize spending, and audit your bill. We also offer a detailed usage report that shows consumption per resource per hour.
