Pricing is based on the total number of minutes of video output in a calendar month at the end of the payment period.
Payment period is one calendar month and is billed on the third day of the following month. For example; usage for the month of January is billed on the 3rd of February.
Minutes are calculated based on the total number of seconds of video created. For example; if your video is 1 minute and 1 second you are billed for 1 minute and 1 second, not 2 minutes.
At the end of the payment period, total minutes are rounded up to the nearest minute. For example; if you create 10 minutes and 30 seconds of video in total you will be billed for 11 minutes.
