The minimum time unit for computing the prorata usage is a day. Here are some examples to help you understand the billing model

Scenario 1: Billing for extra Export of data.

You have purchased 10 Tracer subscriptions and 20 Durability subscriptions on Jan 1st.

Each Tracer user is allowed upto of Export in a year, and each durability user is allowed upto in a year.

On Jan 17th, Ravi, a tracer user, exported 20 GB of data for the first time during the subscription period

So far the usage is within the 25 GB limit for Ravi. No extra usage during Jan, so no bill in Jan

On Feb 19th, Ravi, exported 10 GB of data for the second time during the subscription period

Now Ravi has exceeded his annual export limit of 25 GB by 5GB.

On feb 28th, a bill will be generated for 5GB x + taxes.

No bill in March

On April 25th, Sumeet a Durability user, exported 50 GB of data (excess of 5 GB)

On April 26th, Shiela a Tracer user, exported 40 GB of data (excess of 15 GB)
