You only pay for each hour that the host is active in your account. If you choose the On-Demand option, you will be billed at the end of the month in arrears.
Reserved Instance Pricing
Committing to 1-year or 3-year Reserved Instance host subscription can save up to 50% compared to On-Demand hosts consumed over the equivalent period. With 1-year or 3-year Reserved Instances, you can choose to prepay upfront or pay monthly.
