Pricing details

When you call Amazon SES from an application hosted in Amazon EC2, you can send 62,000 messages per month at no charge. This Free Usage Tier benefit does not expire.

Note: You pay for outgoing mail data, incoming mail chunks, and EC2 data transfer fees, even if your usage of Amazon SES qualifies for the AWS Free Usage Tier.

Depending on how you set up and use Amazon SES, you may pay monthly fees for using other AWS Services. For example:

  • If you send email by using an application hosted in Amazon EC2, you pay for your compute usage, as well as data transfer fees for the data you send out of EC2. For more information, see Amazon EC2 Pricing.
  • If you transfer incoming messages to an Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket, you pay based on amount of data you store. For more information, see Amazon S3 Pricing.
  • If you receive notifications by using Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS), you pay based on the number of notifications you receive. For more information, see Amazon SNS Pricing.
  • If you use custom dashboards or metrics in Amazon CloudWatch, you pay additional monthly fees based on the number of custom metrics and dashboards you create. For more information, see Amazon CloudWatch Pricing.

You can estimate your monthly charges for all AWS Services by using the Billing Dashboard in the AWS Management Console.
