No. When you add your credit card to a new account a pre-auth of $1 may be applied to ensure the card is active but the hold on this $1 should be released by your bank within a couple days. From that point forward you will be charged on the 1st of each month for any balance due from your use of the services. When you launch your first droplet it will begin incurring charges at it’s hourly rate up to a cap in each calendar month of it’s monthly rate.
