How myDEAC billing works?

The cost of myDEAC services is calculated based on the pricing of the respective service. In myDEAC, it is possible to purchase Oline services, which can be received in minutes, as well as data center services, which are implemented based on individual offers and prices.

In the case of online services, the price is determined upon starting the use of the service. An hourly billing model (Pay-As-You-Go) is used, which means that the cost of the bill is calculated from the actual time that the service is used. The total amount depends on the number of days in the month and the hours when the service is used. When the use of the service is started, the accounting of service costs is started for the relevant Workspace, up to the maximum limit of a given month. If it is exceeded, a warning is sent and additional funds must be credited to Workspace.

It is important to note that the fee will still be calculated, even if the service is in a STOP status. This is because the resource remains reserved for the customer, and the associated data is retained.

To halt the fee calculation, the instance must be entirely deleted, resulting in the removal of all stored data as well.

The invoice shows the costs within the previous month and is automatically generated on the first day of each subsequent month.

How to order online services on the myDEAC platform?

To place an order, you can choose one of the order payment scenarios:

  1. Create a Workspace and add funds with the chosen payment method. After that, choose the online service you want, select the desired configuration and press the Deploy button. In this case, the prepaid invoice payment model will be applied - using the service for the amount available in Workspace.
  2. Choose a service from the product menu or by pressing the New Service button in the upper right corner of the platform, make the necessary configuration choices and press the Deploy button. At this moment, you will need to create a Workspace, as well as specify payment card data.

After the card is validated, you will be able to start using the selected service worth up to 100 EUR per month on a postpaid basis. This means that 100 EUR will be available to you until the end of the month, if the service exceeds this amount, you will have to pay additional funds to the relevant Workspace.

How is the postpaid model billed and charged?

Upon confirmation of the payment method, users can access online services with a capped limit of 100 EUR. If service usage exceeds this limit within the current month, users must make an additional payment to their account.

Please note: Accounts will be charged on the first day of the following month. However, in the event of a failed transaction and insufficient funds replenishment, all services associated with the account will be permanently deleted. Hence, users must always ensure that their account maintains sufficient funds or a valid payment method.

When are services canceled if there are insufficient funds to pay for them?

If the bill is not paid (postpaid model) or additional funds are not added (prepaid model), then after 7 days from the date when this payment was due - all your services will be stopped. If we haven’t received payment after 7 days - all services and data will be permanently deleted.
