This topic describes the billing items, billing methods, and prices of available AI capabilities on iFLYTEK Open Platform.

Note

AI capabilities on iFLYTEK Open Platform uses the following billing rules:

  • If you adopt the pay-as-you-go billing method, you are charged on a daily basis based on the standard billing rules of iFLYTEK Open Platform. Your consumption on the current day is billed on the next day. Therefore, you must keep your account balance sufficient to avoid overdue payments that may affect service use.
