Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: Do I need the authoring environment FME Desktop?

Yes, FME Desktop offers a simple graphical user interface to author workflows for FME Cloud. FME Desktop pricing is not included and can be found here.

Q: What happens if I don't run my instance for a full hour?

All instances are charged a minimum of 1 hour for up-time each time they are launched. For example, if you run your instance for 40 minutes, you’ll be billed for 1 hour of usage and if you launch an instance twice within an hour you'll be charged for two hours.

Q: How am I billed?

If you are paying hourly for the instance, then you will be billed monthly for the instance and your data transfer, storage, and backup costs. If you purchased an annual subscription for the instance, then you will pay the up-front one time payment for that instance plus you will be billed monthly for your data transfer, storage, and backup costs. All invoices are charged in USD.

Q: Am I charged while the instance is paused?

You are not charged the FME Cloud hourly instance costs. The only costs are the data storage costs as your data still persists on the disk.

We accept all major credit cards. Bulk credits can also be pre-purchased via other payment methods.

Q: Will I be charged sales tax?

Sales taxes are only charged to customers who reside in Canada. All prices on this page are in US Dollars.
