There is no additional charge for AWS Elastic Beanstalk. You pay for AWS resources (e.g. EC2 instances or S3 buckets) you create to store and run your application. You only pay for what you use, as you use it; there are no minimum fees and no upfront commitments.

New AWS customers who are eligible for the AWS free usage tier can deploy an application in Elastic Beanstalk for free, as the default settings for Elastic Beanstalk allow a low traffic application to run within the free tier without incurring charges. If these applications require more resources than the default environment provides, customers will be charged the normal AWS rates for the incremental resources the application consumes.

The costs of running a web site using Elastic Beanstalk can vary based on several factors such as the number of Amazon EC2 instances needed to handle your web site traffic, the bandwidth consumed by your application, and which database or storage options your application uses. The principal costs for a web application will typically be for the Amazon EC2 instance(s) and for the Elastic Load Balancing that distributes traffic between the instances running your application.
