Sign Up for AWS

When you sign up for Amazon Web Services (AWS), your AWS account is automatically signed up for all services in AWS, including Amazon Forecast. You are charged only for the services that you use.

If you already have an AWS account, skip to the next task. If you don't have an AWS account, use the following procedure to create one.
