A breakdown of costs for all MongoDB Cloud product usage can be found on your monthly cloud invoices, viewable in Atlas through your organization’s Billing page.

In addition to the default breakdown of costs that your invoice provides, you can configure your own resource tags for a deployment to categorize costs. To learn more, see Resource Tags on Invoices.


Resource tags that appear on invoice CSV files and those returned from the Atlas Admin API reflect your configuration of resource tags at the moment the CSV is generated or the API is invoked.

Please be aware that if you reconfigure your resource tags within a billing cycle, your invoice reflects only the latest configuration of tags.

Cloud usage at the very end of a billing period may appear as a line item on your invoice for the next billing period instead. For example, usage on October 31st may be processed in November.

Atlas data transfer, private endpoint, and backup costs depend on your Cloud Service Provider. Due to reporting lag from Cloud Service Providers, usage of these services may be processed in the following days.

There are a number of ways to optimize data transference depending on the configuration of your project. For a list of common options, see How to Reduce Data Transfer Costs on the Billing page.

Payments will fail if there is an issue with your Payment Method. To learn how to verify your Payment Method and retry your payment, see Retry a Failed Payment.

Customers in the European Economic Area (EEA) may experience payment failures due to Strong Customer Authentication (SCA), a European regulatory requirement. To learn how to authenticate a credit card and comply with SCA, see Strong Customer Authentication (SCA).

When you exhaust your Atlas credits and you have an elastic billing subscription, you can continue to use Atlas without interruption. You're billed for usage beyond your credits with monthly invoices.

Your organization activity feed produces an event notifying you that MongoDB will invoice your organization for your monthly usage. The payment method section of your organization's billing overview reflects the change.

With a MongoDB subscription, you can check if MongoDB has received a payment for an invoice in the Atlas console:

  1. Navigate to your organization's Billing page.

  2. Click on the invoice for which you want to check your payment status.

  3. Scroll down to the Payments section of the invoice. The Status column lists your payment status.

If MongoDB has received a payment, the payment status is SUCCESSFUL.
