Pricing philosophy & billing questions

Pricing should be as simple as possible, while following the falling cost of computation defined by Moore's Law. If you have specific billing questions, take a look at our frequently asked questions.

Billing FAQs and pricing philosophy

When charging in local currency, Google will convert the prices listed into applicable local currency pursuant to the conversion rates published by leading financial institutions.

2  Lowest price (USD) per hour with full sustained usage: This is the price per hour with full sustained-use discounts applied, when the machine type is running for 100% of the month. To get a feel for how sustained usage pricing applies in your use cases, try the pricing calculator.
3  Typical price (USD) per hour: This is the price paid per hour under average usage as calculated over all Compute Engine users, and includes sustained use discounts.
4  Full price (USD) per hour without sustained use: This is the price per hour of the machine type when used less than 25% of the month; no sustained use discounts are applied because the instance was not running for at least 25% of the time.

Sustained Use Discounts

Once you use an instance for over 25% of a billing cycle, your price starts dropping. This discount is applied automatically, with no sign-up or up-front commitment required. If you use an instance for 100% of the billing cycle, you get a 30% net discount over our already low prices.

Premium OS Pricing

Pricing for premium operating systems differ based on the machine type where the premium operating system image is used. For example, an f1-micro instance will be charged $0.02 per hour for a SUSE image, while an n1-standard-8 instance will be charged $0.11 per hour. All prices for premium operating systems are in addition to charges for using a machine type.

Pricing for premium operating systems are the same worldwide and do not differ based on zones or regions, as machine type prices do.

Cloud SQL

Google offers two billing plans for Cloud SQL:

For developers with more traffic, we have package plans that offer a discount and help you predict your costs in advance.

For developers with lightweight applications, we offer a flexible "per use" pricing scheme. You pay only for the time you access your data. Get started with a cloud-hosted MySQL database for around $1 per day.

Translate API

Important: Google Translate API v.2 requires billing information for all accounts before you can start using the service. See instructions below in usage fees on how to enable billing.

Google Translate API pricing is based on usage. Translation usage is calculated in millions of characters (M), where 1 M = 106 characters. For more information, see the Pricing FAQ.

Important: Google Translate API v2 requires billing information for all accounts before you can start using the service. See instructions below on how to enable billing.

  • Usage fees:
    • Translation:
      • $20 per 1 M characters of text, where the charges are adjusted in proportion to the number of characters actually provided. For example, if you were to translate 500K characters, you would be billed $10.
    • Language Detection:
      • $20 per 1 M characters of text, where the charges are adjusted in proportion to the number of characters actually provided.
  • Usage limits:
    • Google Translate API has a default limit of 2 M chars/day. You can increase this limit up to 50 M chars/day in the Google Developers Console by following the instructions below.
    • If you need to translate more than 50 M chars/day, please contact us

To enable billing for your project, do the following:

  1. Go to the Google Developers Console.
  2. Select a project.
  3. In the sidebar on the left, select Billing.
  4. At the top of the page, select Enable Billing.
  5. Fill in the form.

To view or change usage limits for your project, or to request an increase to your total limit, do the following:

  3. In the sidebar on the left, select APIs & auth, then select an API.
  4. On the API's info page, select the Quota link near the API name.

Prediction API

Free Quota

Usage is free for the first six months, up to the following limits per Google Developers Console project. This free quota applies even when billing is enabled, until the six-month expiration time.

  • Usage limits:
    • Predictions: 100 predictions/day
    • Hosted model predictions: Hosted models have a usage limit of 100 predictions/day/user across all models.
    • Training: 5MB trained/day

  • Usage fees:
    • Prediction:
      • 10,000 predictions/month: $0.00
      • 10,001+ predictions/month: $0.50/1,000 predictions beyond the initial 10,000
    • Training:
      • $0.002/MB bulk trained (maximum size of each dataset: 2.5GB)
      • 0-10,000 streaming updates: $0.00
      • 10,001+ streaming updates: $0.05/1,000 updates beyond the initial 10,000.
  • Usage limits:
    • If you intend to make more than 40,000 predictions/day, please contact us.
