Viewing Monthly Expenditures

  1. Go to the Dashboard page.
  2. View your monthly bills and expenditure summary.

    1. Total: Displays the actual expenditure amount.
      • Total/Estimated Total:
        • If the bill of the queried month has already been generated, Total is displayed, indicating the actual expenditure amount (= Total expenditure – Refunds – Coupons deducted).
        • If the bill of the queried month has not been generated, Estimated Total is displayed, indicating the monthly expenditure amount that has not been billed. Since the expenditure data may be delayed, the final billed amount shall prevail.
        • Subscription Fee Paid: Total subscription fee that has been paid. It includes the payment fee for yearly/monthly resources and the prepaid fee for reserved instances.
        • Monthly Settlement: Total fee settled at the end of a month.
        • Total = Total amount of bills = Total expenditure amount in the month – Refunds – Coupons deducted.
      • Estimated Amount Due: Your expenditure amount that has not been billed. Since the expenditure data may be delayed, the final billed amount shall prevail.
      • Amount Due: The amount that has been billed and needs to be paid.
    2. Payment Summary and Invoices: Displays the invoices corresponding to actual payments or refunds. All payments and refunds displayed here are in cash, excluding cash coupons.
      • Invoice: All commercial invoices in the billing cycle are displayed, including invoices for top-ups. For customers who are charged at the end of each month, the invoice is created only after fee deduction.
      • Payment: Top-ups and cash expenditures are included. Cash expenditures include the fee of yearly/monthly orders and the monthly settlements, excluding coupon deductions. The date in the payment summary is the fee deduction date of a transaction.
      • Refund: Amounts of unsubscriptions, specification downgrades, and account adjustments are included. Refund for account adjustment is the refund of orders that are not settled monthly.
    3. Bills: The customer expenditure data summarized based on accounts, product types and cloud service regions.
