Upgrading to the paid version

You don't automatically upgrade to the paid version once the trial period ends. To upgrade to the paid version, go to the Billing page in the management console and click Upgrade to the paid version.

Using the remainder of the initial grant

If you don't spend the full amount of the initial grant or one of its parts before upgrading to the paid version, you can use the remaining amount depending on when the grant expires:

  • The grant expires before you upgrade to the paid version.

    The remaining amount expires and you can't use it to pay for Yandex.Cloud services after upgrading to the paid version.

  • The grant expires after you upgrade to the paid version.

    You can use the remaining amount to pay for services, but only until the grant expires: as soon as that happens, the remaining amount expires, too.

The grant terms of use remain in effect when you upgrade:

A remainder of part of the grant is only used to pay for the intended service or services.

The grant terms of use depend on the payment method you select when creating your billing account:

Payment method Using the grant
Bank transfer The remainder of the grant can be used to pay for any Yandex.Cloud services.
Bank card The remainder of part of the grant can only be used to pay for its intended service or services.

Service payment

In Yandex.Cloud, you pay for services based on the amount of resources consumed. For detailed instructions on how to pay for resources after upgrading to the paid version, see the Billing documentation.

At the same time, you have 35 days until the grant expires (60 - 25).
