How will build be charged?
Build is in preview and there is no charge to use build currently. In the future, a limited amount of monthly build services will be included in the Free Plan, but customers will be able to generate additional builds for an added charge. This page will be updated as we have more information to share about pricing.
What happens if I want to stop using the service?
