GameOn Billing Overview
Each developer account receives 35,000 free plays per month (for the first 6 months) across all apps. After this period, your AWS account will be billed for GameOn usage.
When you create and run a GameOn competition, you accrue charges to your Amazon GameOn account, based on the total number of game plays that take place in the competition. Refer to the Pricing page for additional information about GameOn pricing.
Charges for your GameOn competitions will be included in your monthly AWS bill. You need to associate an active AWS account with each game that you register with GameOn.
You link an AWS account to a game when you register the game with GameOn. This provides flexibility for different situations. For example, you could associate all of your games with one AWS account. You could also create separate accounts for different games (or groups of games), for your own internal accounting reasons.
- You need at least one valid AWS account.
- You need admin access to any AWS account that you use for GameOn billing.
AWS Account Linking
You will use AWS Account Linking in the following three scenarios:
- Register a new game.
- Register an existing game.
- Change the AWS account number for an existing game.
Managing Games describes these steps in detail.
For any game that you registered before June 19, 2018, you need to link an AWS account to that game. See the Billing FAQ for an instructional video.
