Pricing at a glance

Data processing and storage
You are charged by the Gigabyte (GB) for storing event data in Amazon Fraud Detector. Data storage is optional. Event data can be stored both through uploads of historic events and when generating predictions.

Model Training
Amazon Fraud Detector charges for the compute hours consumed to train a custom model with your data. A compute hour represents one hour of compute capacity using 8v CPUs and 32 GB memory. Fraud Detector automatically chooses the fastest, most efficient instance type to train your data, and the instance may exceed baseline specifications. Therefore, the number of compute hours billed may be greater than the number of elapsed training hours.

Model Hosting
Fraud Detector charges for compute capacity by the hour for on-demand hosting of deployed models, so that they are available for real-time predictions.

Fraud Predictions
Fraud Detector chargers per fraud prediction. The price you are charged varies based on whether you are using an Amazon Fraud Detector machine learning model or only rules. The per prediction price is the same for real-time and batch predictions. Your fraud predictions are aggregated for each month's usage and billed according to the pricing tiers. Predictions that use a model imported from Amazon SageMaker are priced as rules-based predictions.

Example 1: Real-time online fraud detection for an ecommerce merchant

You are an ecommerce merchant who’s looking to protect yourself from high risk guest checkout orders and chargebacks. Let’s say you upload 5 GB of data and train a single model twice per month, with each training consuming 10 compute hours to complete. Further, you deploy one of the models for the entire month and use it to generate 1,000 real-time fraud predictions per day. The bill for the month for using Amazon Fraud Detector will be:

Data processing and storage charge = 5 GB x $0.10 per GB = $0.50

Training charge = 10 compute hours x 2 trainings x $0.39 per compute hour = $7.80

Hosting charge = 30 days x 24 hours x 1 model x $0.06 per compute hour = $43.20

Fraud prediction charge (real-time and batch) = 1,000 predictions / day x 30 days x $0.03 per Online Fraud Insights prediction = $900

Total cost = $0.50 + $7.80 + $43.20 + $900 = $951.50

Example 2: Transaction fraud detection for a payment service provider

You are a payment service provider that offers card-not-present acceptance solutions looking to reduce transaction fraud by flagging suspicious payments. You plan to implement a machine learning model and a rules-based decisioning system. Let’s say you upload 20GB and train two models once a month, with each model training consuming 10 compute hours to complete. You then pick the better performing model and deploy it for the entire month. You generate 20,000 real-time fraud predictions per day (resulting in 600,000 transactions per month) and 1000 rules-based fraud prediction decisions per day (resulting in 30,000 transactions per month). The bill for the month for using Amazon Fraud Detector will be:

Data processing and storage charge = 20 GB x $0.10 per GB = $2

Training charge = 2 models x 10 compute hours x 2 trainings x $0.39 per compute hour = $15.60

Hosting charge = 30 days x 24 hours x 1 model x $0.06 per compute hour = $43.20

ML-based fraud prediction charge (real-time) for first 100,000 transactions = 100,000 predictions x $0.03 per Transaction Fraud Insights prediction = $3,000

ML-based fraud prediction charge (real-time) for next 500,000 transactions = 500,000 predictions x $0.075 per Transaction Fraud Insights prediction = $3,750

Rules-based fraud prediction charge = 1,000 predictions / day x 30 days x $0.005 per Rules-based fraud prediction = $150

Total cost = $2 + $15.60 + $43.20 + $3,000 + $3,750 + $150 = $6,960.80
