The Amazon Web Services Price List API provides you with the ability to query for the current and historical prices of Amazon Web Services services, as well as receive alerts via Amazon SNS when pricing changes are detected.

Starting today, customers in China will be able to access Amazon Web Services service pricing information programmatically via the Price List API. Using the Price List API, you can query for the prices of Amazon Web Services services and receive your results in JSON or CSV format for programmatic consumption. From there, you can perform cost reconciliation or build cost reporting and analysis solutions that are tailored to your business. You can also subscribe to an SNS topic to receive notifications when pricing changes are detected (e.g., a new service is introduced or Amazon Web Services cuts prices).

To get started, please refer to the Using the Amazon Web Services Price List API user guide.
