When a new Cloud Backup subscription is created, charges will begin on the first day of the following month.  Thereafter, you will continue to be billed in arrears, meaning current month’ consumption will be billed on the first week of the following month. For example, if a subscription is created on July 15th, there will be no charges for the remainder of July. Charges will begin on August 1st, and the invoice for August will be available on the first week of September.
