A minimum monthly commitment - Each plan requires you to commit to paying a minimum amount at the beginning of every month while your account is in “active” status. This minimum commitment will set the limits for your basic usage: once your usage goes over your minimum commitment amount, you will need to add additional funds to keep using our service.
When customers only use data-center IPs, we calculate their cost on a daily basis. We subtract this daily cost from the current balance in your account, showing the remaining balance available for use. Costs are calculated according to the IP types used (shared vs. dedicated), as well as bandwidth/GB used. We also calculate any additional costs for added features (like exclusive time or dedicated domain/host).
You will be billed for the costs described above on the 1st of every month. The balance remaining in your account will reflect the amount available for future use.
Bright Data’s billing cycle starts on the 1st of each month. This means that you will be billed for your monthly account commitment automaticlly at the 1st of every month as long as your account status is active.
If you join Bright Data in the middle of the month, your first minimum account commitment payment will be charged on the day you join and usage will retroactively apply only to the days in which your account was active during the month.
