    The Billing tab lets you view your current and recent account balances, and manage invoices and payment details.

    The available billing options, Direct billing and Marketplace billing, differ in the following ways:

    • Direct billing: Starburst sends you a separate monthly bill for your Starburst Galaxy usage.

      Click Direct billing, then click Add credit card. In the Add new card dialog, enter your credit card details, then click Add card. Your credit card information is now displayed in Payment details along with an option to remove your credit card.

      You cannot disable direct billing or remove an active payment method if:

      • Your account carries an invoice balance.
      • Charges are pending.
      • There is no secondary payment method set up.

    • Marketplace billing: Your preferred cloud provider charges you for your Starburst Galaxy usage.

    All charges are based on consumption and are displayed in US dollars.
