AWS Billing Reports for Amazon S3

Your monthly bill from AWS separates your usage information and cost by AWS service and function. There are several AWS billing reports available, the monthly report, the cost allocation report, and detailed billing reports. For information about how to see your billing reports, see Viewing Your Bill in the AWS Billing and Cost Management User Guide.

You can also download a usage report that gives more detail about your Amazon S3 storage usage than the billing reports. For more information, see AWS Usage Report for Amazon S3.

The following table lists the charges associated with Amazon S3 usage.

Amazon S3 Usage Charges

Charge Comments

Storage

You pay for storing objects in your S3 buckets. The rate you’re charged depends on your objects' size, how long you stored the objects during the month, and the storage class—STANDARD, STANDARD_IA (IA for infrequent access) GLACIER, or Reduced Redundancy Storage (RRS). For more information about storage classes, see Storage Classes.

Requests

You pay for requests, for example, GET requests, made against your S3 buckets and objects. This includes lifecycle requests. The rates for requests depend on what kind of request you’re making. For information about request pricing, see Amazon S3 Pricing.

Retrievals

You pay for retrieving objects that are stored in STANDARD_IA and GLACIER storage.

Early Deletes

If you delete an object stored in STANDARD_IA or GLACIER storage before the minimum storage commitment has passed, you pay an early deletion fee for that object.

Storage Management

You pay for the storage management features (Amazon S3 inventory, analytics, and object tagging) that are enabled on your account’s buckets.

Bandwidth

You pay for all bandwidth into and out of Amazon S3, except for the following:

  • Data transferred in from the internet

  • Data transferred out to an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance, when the instance is in the same AWS Region as the S3 bucket

  • Data transferred out to Amazon CloudFront (CloudFront)

You also pay a fee for any data transferred using Amazon S3 Transfer Acceleration.

For detailed information on Amazon S3 usage charges for storage, data transfer, and services, see Amazon S3 Pricing and the Amazon S3 FAQ.
