the differences between
AWS and AISPL accounts


What are the differences between AWS accounts and Amazon Internet Services Private Limited (AISPL) accounts?

The main difference between AWS and AISPL accounts is the seller of record. AWS accounts are administered by Amazon Web Services, Inc. and AISPL accounts are administered by Amazon Internet Services Private Limited. If you entered an Indian address when creating your account, your account is with AISPL; otherwise, your account is with AWS.

The following are a few other differences between AWS accounts and AISPL accounts:

  • By default, AWS accounts are billed in US dollars (USD), and AISPL accounts are billed in Indian Rupees (INR).
  • AWS accounts are automatically billed each month. Monthly bills for AISPL accounts must be paid manually each month in the Billing and Cost Management console.
  • The up-front fees for Reserved Instances and AWS Support plans must be paid manually before they will activate on the account.
  • Payments for AISPL accounts might require you to verify your payment method per the terms of the financial institution associated with your payment method. For example, you might be asked to enter a security code provided by your financial institution, or use another verification method.
  • AISPL accounts cannot change the country attributed to the account's physical address after the account has been created.
