New Features

Amazon EC2 in Europe On December 10, 2008, Amazon EC2 announced the release of Amazon EC2 in Europe. For more information, see

What does this mean for your paid or supported AMIs?

Any existing DevPay products you have will continue to operate as normal. EC2 users (regardless of their location) can continue to use your existing DevPay products with Amazon EC2 in the United States.

Amazon DevPay does not yet support Amazon EC2 in Europe. This means you currently can't specify a price for a paid AMI that uses Amazon EC2 in Europe, and EC2 users currently can't launch paid AMIs with Amazon EC2 in Europe. Although you can associate a product code with an AMI and store it in Amazon S3-Europe, no one can launch instances of that AMI.

Known Issues

Error in WSDL The License Service WSDL (at incorrectly lists a child element called RequestId in the ErrorResponse element. The correct name of the element is RequestID (with a capital D). Our plan is to update the WSDL to match what the service actually returns (RequestID).
Limitation on AWS services used You can build an application that monetizes Amazon EC2 or Amazon Simple Storage Service, but not both.
Limitation on decimal places for prices You can set prices with a maximum of only two decimal places.
Throttling of License Service requests per developer Requests to the License Service are throttled as necessary. They are throttled per developer instead of per DevPay product. Therefore, if you have multiple DevPay products, the sum of the requests from all your DevPay products is used to determine whether your requests need to be throttled.
Information not available on the first of the month If you visit your DevPay Activity page on the first of the month, your revenue statement for the previous month might not yet be available. We instead recommend that you view the page after you've received the e-mail from AWS that indicates the revenue statement is available.

Also, the page might display zeros for all the values because the page has not yet been updated with the information for the first day of the month. We recommend that you return to the page on the second day of the month.
Withdrawal limit When you withdraw money from your Amazon Payments account, the withdrawal amount must be at least $10.00.
No sandbox for testing DevPay does not have a sandbox for testing. All testing you perform involves movement of real money.
