While I have some ideas, I’d like to instead help you to find the answer so that it will certainly be the right one. These steps will lead you to the invoice:

  1. Log in at
  2. Click on Account on the left-hand side
  3. Click Billing under Account
  4. Look for a link to your current (incomplete) invoice under the Usage section

In that invoice you should see a breakdown of the current charges. It could be that you have other products you thought you had removed, or it could be that we are obligated to charge tax in your region.


  • thanks.
    i was able to check:

    • total usage charge $4.50
    • tax and stuff $0.81

    it seems total usage charge is for 27 days
    based on that my 30day charge would be = 4.50 / 27 X 30 = 5.00
    other amount is the tax it seems.
