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. Monitor the cost of your deployments by checking your account usage. Monthly costs are shown for convenience only, as billing is done by the hour. You can also test with a bigger deployment or try out additional features and only pay for the hours used.
We also offer AWS Marketplace, GCP Marketplace, and Azure Marketplace billing, if you prefer not to add a credit card directly.
To add your billing details:
- Log in to the Elasticsearch Service Console.
- Select the user icon on the header bar and select Billing from the menu.
- On the Overview page, select Add billing information.
- If prompted, complete the multi-factor authentication (MFA) required by your bank.
If you want, you can stop new charges by deleting your deployment.
