Pricing FAQs

What is Brightbox Orbit?

Orbit is a highly durable and highly available UK-based "object storage" service, where your files are automatically distributed over multiple storage devices and across multiple datacentres for maximum resilience. Brightbox Orbit is based on Openstack Swift.

How does billing work?

All of the products available within Brightbox Cloud are provided on a metered billing basis. Our cloud billing system collects usage data from across our infrastructure every minute and generates invoices monthly in arrears.

Do I need to make a pre-payment before using Brightbox Cloud?

No. Unlike many other cloud services, you don't need to make a payment before using Brightbox - you only need to add a valid credit card.

Which credit cards do you accept?

We currently accept both Visa and Mastercard.

Which currencies do you support?

We only bill in Pounds Sterling (GBP) at present. We may add multi-currency in future.

When does billing for a Cloud Server or Load Balancer start and stop?

Billing starts only when the requested resource (e.g a Cloud Server or Load Balancer) first becomes "Active" and is ready to use. Billing stops as soon as a "destroy" request is received by the API. In other words, we start billing as late as possible and we stop billing as early as possibly - so that you only pay whilst a particular resource is usable by you.

Can I make pre-payments?

Yes, although it's not a requirement, you can make ad-hoc payments to your Brightbox account and maintain a credit balance. When you receive your monthly invoice, your prepaid balance is deducted first and the remainder is then charged to your registered credit card.

Can I make a payment by BACS/bank transfer?

Yes, you can make a pre-payment (see above) via BACS/bank transfer, although you must always have a valid credit card registered in your Brightbox account. An administration fee of £25 will be deducted from any amounts you transfer to cover our bank charges and admin fees.

Why do you charge a minimum of 1 hour for Cloud Servers and Load Balancers?

Cloud Servers and Load Balancers consume more resources during the initial creation process (i.e during the first hour of their lifetime). So, to reflect this, when a Cloud Server is created and deleted within the first hour we round this up to 1 full hour of usage.

Will VAT be added to my invoices?

As a VAT-registered UK company, we're required to add VAT to purchases from: (a) EU-based customers without a valid VAT registration number and, (b) all UK-based customers (regardless of VAT status).

EU-based customers with a valid VAT registration number registered to their Brightbox account will not be charged VAT. Also, customers based outside of the EU and, therefore, outside the scope of VAT will not be charged VAT.

Are there volume discounts available?

Yes, please contact our sales team to discuss volume discounts.
