Grant: Discount given to a sole proprietor, a business, or an individual on use of any Yandex Cloud services. The discount amount corresponds to the grant amount. The discount is applied to the total cost of services consumed.
The currency in which the cost of services is displayed depends on the agreement and the country of residence:
- For residents of Russia, the cost is displayed in rubles (₽) and includes VAT.
- For non-residents of Russia, the cost is displayed in US dollars ($) and doesn't include taxes or fees.
When creating your first billing account, you are provided with an initial grant. For more information about the size of the initial grant and conditions for its use, see the document Getting started.
Each individual, sole proprietor, or business can be given only one initial grant.
Additional grants can be provided by decision of a Yandex Cloud manager, or if you request them from support. You can view the amount of additional grants and their validity period in the management console.
How to use grants
The grant priority depends on its validity period: the earlier it expires, the earlier the grant is used.
