The address is used to determine any applicable sales tax.

Exceeded rate limits
If you exceed your plan’s rate limits, InfluxDB Cloud provides a notification in the InfluxDB Cloud user interface (UI) and adds a rate limit event to your Usage page for review.
All rate-limited requests are rejected; including both read and write requests. Rate-limited requests are not queued.
To remove rate limits, upgrade to a Usage-based Plan.
Rate-limited HTTP response code
When a request exceeds your plan’s rate limit, the InfluxDB API returns the following response:
HTTP 429 “Too Many Requests” Retry-After: xxx (seconds to wait before retrying the request)
Billing occurs on the first day of the month for the previous month. For example, if you start the Usage-based Plan on September 15, you’re billed on October 1 for your usage from September 15-30.
Declined or late payments
|Initial declined payment||We’ll retry charge every 72 hours. During this period, update your payment method to successfully process your payment.|
|One week later||Account disabled except data writes. Update your payment method to successfully process your payment and enable your account.|
|10-14 days later||Account completely disabled. During this period, you must contact us at email@example.com to process your payment and enable your account.|
