Billing is based on the usage of your Strapi Cloud account and applications. You will be billed monthly for the usage of your account and applications. You can view your usage and billing information in the Billing section of your Strapi Cloud account.


If you exceed the limits of your plan for API Requests, Asset Bandwidth, or Asset Storage, you will be charged for the corresponding overages.

For example, if you exceed the 500GB limit in asset bandwidth of the Pro plan, you will be charged for the excess bandwidth at the end of the current billing period. Overages are not prorated and are charged in full.

Overages are charged according to the following rates:

API Requests$1.50 / 25k requests
Asset Bandwidth$25.00 / 100GB
Asset Storage$2.00/GB per month

Projects may end up in a Suspended state for various reasons, including violating the terms of service or exceeding the limits of your free trial plan.

If your project is suspended, you will no longer be able to access the application or trigger new deployments. You will also be unable to access the Strapi Admin Panel. You can view the status of your project in the Projects section of your Strapi Cloud account.

Owners of suspended projects will receive an email notification with instructions on how to resolve the issue. If you do not receive an email notification, please contact Strapi Support.
