Billing and usage reporting for S3 buckets

When using Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), you don't have to pay any upfront fees or commit to how much content you'll store. As with the other Amazon Web Services (Amazon) services, you pay as you go and pay only for what you use.

Amazon provides the following reports for Amazon S3:

  • Billing reports – Multiple reports that provide high-level views of all of the activity for the Amazon services that you're using, including Amazon S3.
