AWS Snowball Pricing

With AWS Snowball, you pay a service fee per data transfer job (plus applicable shipping charges). Each job includes the use of a Snowball appliance for 10 days of onsite usage for free*, and there is a small charge for extra onsite days. Shipping days, including the day the appliance is received and the day it is shipped back to AWS, are not counted toward the 10 free days. Data transferred into AWS does not incur any data transfer fees, and Standard Amazon S3 pricing applies.

Pricing Example
The pricing example below illustrates what you can expect to pay for a 30 terabyte data transfer into AWS using one 80TB Snowball appliance where you kept the appliance for a total of 15 days (received the appliance on day 1 and returned the appliance on day 15).

Service Fee per Snowball transfer job:
The service fee per transfer job on this size Snowball is 2000 CNY (not counting shipping).

Extra day charge:
The day the appliance is received and the day the appliance is shipped back to AWS are considered shipping days, and are not counted toward the 10 free days in this case. This means, if you had the appliance onsite for a total of 13 days, then 10 out of those days are free. Therefore, you used 3 extra days to transfer your data.

The total extra day charge is: 3 days x 140 CNY/day = 420 CNY

Data Transfer:
In this example, you transferred data IN to AWS, so the data transfer cost is 0 CNY.

Shipping:
Shipping charges are based on a flat rate for standard 2-5 day delivery to or from all provinces in China.

* Each job includes 10 free days of onsite usage of a Snowball appliance. Shipping days, including the day the appliance is received and the day it is shipped back to AWS, are not counted toward the 10 free days. Appliances not returned to AWS within 90 days may be considered lost and subject to a lost device fee. Visit the FAQs for additional information.
