AWS IQ Customer Pricing

With AWS IQ, you can post a request with no upfront commitments, and you pay for completed project milestones through your AWS account. The expert fee will never exceed the price agreed to in the proposal plus a 3% AWS IQ fee (and applicable taxes). Experts request payment after they reach pre-determined milestones or complete the project.


AWS will suspend expert and buyer fees for use of AWS IQ from April 16, 2020 to June 30, 2020 for all customers. This applies to the 3% IQ fee charged to buyers and 15% fee charged to experts for all approved payment requests. It does not include service fees charged by the AWS Certified experts.

Pricing example

After you submit a request, an expert will submit a proposal for the project. You will approve the proposal before the expert begins any work. Experts can request payment when project milestones are reached or when the project is completed. Your total price will not exceed the proposal amount plus the 3% AWS IQ fee and applicable taxes. For example, a project with a fixed bid of $1,000 would look as follows:

Payment request: $1,000

AWS IQ fee (3%): $30

Total charge: $1,030


For all payment requests approved by June 30, 2020, the 3% fee is waived. For example, a project with a fixed bid of $1,000 would look as follows:

Payment request: $1,000

AWS IQ fee (3%): Waived

Total charge if approved by June 30th: $1,000
