Payment system for dedicated machines
Dedicated machines have price calculated for hours and is billed that way. However, every machine has minimum rent time that is visible in the table of products in Rent dedicated machine section, along with minimum rent cost.
Minimum rent time
Minimum rent time is set individually for every product. If you plan to use infrastructure longer than it says in the table, the cost will be hour precise.
If you want to stop renting machine before it works for minimum rent time, cost will be calculated for minimum rent time.
Example: Machine minimum rent time is 24 hours and it's $2 per hour. If you want to give up on renting machine during the day, for instance, after 12 hours, machine cost on invoice will be still $48 for minimum rent time which is 24 hours.
It's good idea to plan infrastructure usage for at least minimum rent time. Don't worry about accidental removing of machine - you will get notice if minimum rent time has not been reached yet.
