Billing summary

Billing

I would like to better understand the costs of my service. (we have ~40 servers)
The simplest thing I could imagine is to get the current cost, so I would not need to get the price for all the droplets. The second best thing would be to see the daily cost for the past. Right now the only thing I could do is to got through the activities and check what was the price for the created/destroyed droplets.
Please let me know if I missed something and these features already exist.

Hey friend,

This is a great topic. If you visit cloud.digitalocean.com/account/billing, you should see a link under the Usage section that allows you to view the current state of this month’s invoice, which is dynamically updated throughout the month (and finally closed on the first day of next month). This invoice is not updated in real time, but frequently.

At this time that is the most detailed way for you to view this month’s charges, short of manual calculations as you mentioned. It does sound like this may leave something desired for your use case, so I will mention that there is a long term effort to improve the information exposed through the billing page.

Hi Jarland,

Thank you for your answer. I was not able to find that page, it is actually redirects me to projects. Is there any chance that this is only visible for Owner?

Thanks,
Vilmos
