HiveMQ Cloud Console

After you enter your credit card information, the credit card input form no longer displays. To request changes to your payment information, contact cloud@hivemq.com.

Upcoming Invoice

In the Upcoming Invoice area, you can view your month-to-date costs and a detailed breakdown of the current usage charges for each of your clusters.

HiveMQ Cloud features a transparent pricing structure that is easy to calculate. You only pay for the services you use and there are no additional costs or termination fees.
Each cluster costs are calculated per hour of run time. Per cluster, the hourly price includes 1 TB of free data traffic per month and up to 250,000 concurrent client connections. Data usage over the 1 TB of free data per month per cluster is charged per GB of data.

At the end of the month, the calculation of total hours and total data usage rounds up to the nearest whole number. For example, 75 minutes of run time equals 2 hours of usage. After the 1 TB of free data in a monthly billing period, 850 MB of additional data equals 1 GB of billable data usage (US $0.15).
