Can I pay in advance for AWS services?
Last updated: 2021-08-16
Advance Pay is available to Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWSI) customers paying in US dollars for eligible AWS charges. For a full list of service restrictions for Advance Pay, see Advance Pay quotas and restrictions. For more information on registering and adding funds to Advanced Pay, see Managing your Advance Pay.
Some individual AWS services offer payment options that are similar to prepayment. For example, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) offers Reserved Instances. These instances allow you to pay an upfront fee to reserve capacity for your account in one-year or three-year terms.
