Add a Credit Card

If you want to use Elasticsearch Service beyond the trial period or if you want to use features not included in the trial, you need to add a credit card to your account. Your credit card information is sent securely to our billing provider and stored with them.


Trials get converted to paid subscriptions and billing starts when you add a credit card. If you want to maximize your trial, make sure to add your credit card near the end of the trial period.

Just want a quick price estimate? Try our Elasticsearch Service pricing calculator. You can also see the cost of your deployments right in the console by taking a look at your account activity. Monthly costs are shown for convenience only, as billing is done by the hour. This also means that you can test with a bigger deployment or try out additional features and only pay for the hours used.

We also offer AWS Marketplace billing, if you prefer not to add a credit card directly.

To add or change credit card:

  1. Sign in to the Elasticsearch Service Console.
  2. Go to Account and then Payment.
  3. Fill in your billing details.

If you ever want to end being charged for a deployment, you can stop new charges by deleting it.
