Managing account plans and usage details
Last updated 2023-09-21
If you've been assigned a superuser or billing role, you can manage your account plans and review their usage details and the associated charges by selecting Billing from the account menu at the top right of any page.
The billing overview page allows you to view bill-related metrics for your account broken down by product and region over key, monthly timeframes. These metrics provide insights into what you're being charged for by Fastly and how that amount applies to the various products you've purchased and the regions in which traffic to your services operates.
View your account usage metrics broken down by product and region over key, monthly timeframes by clicking Plan usage in the billing controls. These metrics provide insights into the month-to-date usage of things your account's billing is based on (for example, Image Optimizer requests or Concierge TLS). Use the information here to help you estimate your bill and plan for the future.
By default, the usage page displays usage-based metrics for all accounts associated with your user ID. Use the menu at the top of the page to view metrics for a specific account instead.
When you access this page, you'll see:
- a Summary area where you can view global usage-based metrics for your accounts.
- a Usage area where you can view a graph of your month-to-date trends for each of the usage-based metrics related to your accounts.
- a Regional usage area where you can view usage metrics within each geographical region of the world for the month to date. Expand or collapse a region by clicking on its name or use the controls to the right of the area's title to expand or collapse and hide all regions at once.
Usage-based metrics are updated daily. The date and time of the last update appears at the top of the page
View your account invoice information by clicking Invoices in the billing controls. By default, the current balance for your account, if any, appears at the top of the Billing page, followed by your invoice history.
Clicking on the linked date of any invoice displays a summary of charges for that month. The billing invoice summary includes the overall bandwidth you used and the associated charges, followed by the charges you incurred for requests. The bottom of the summary displays the grand total dollar amount owed for the dated month.
Below the month's summary on the invoice, we include regional bandwidth and request details for each billing region. The bottom of each regional details section includes the total charge for bandwidth and requests for that region alone for the dated month.
A breakdown of billing charges per service is not available. Check out our historical stats API for data on unrated request and bandwidth used by a service, aggregated by billing region.
You can print account use details for any month by finding that month in the invoice history and clicking Print in the Actions column for that month.
