Can I pay in advance for AWS services?

Last updated: 2019-06-17

Can I pay for my AWS usage in a lump sum up front?

Resolution

Right now, AWS doesn’t offer an option to make an advance payment. For information on payment options for AWS in general, see What payment methods does AWS accept?

However, 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. For more information about the pricing models for various AWS services, choose that service’s pricing page from the list at Cloud Services Pricing.
