About billing for GitHub Packages

If you want to use GitHub Packages beyond the storage or data transfer included in your account, you will be billed for additional usage.

GitHub Packages 适用于 GitHub Free、GitHub Pro、面向组织的 GitHub Free、GitHub Team, GitHub Enterprise Cloud, GitHub Enterprise Server 3.0 或更高版本以及 GitHub AE。
GitHub Packages 不适用于使用旧版按仓库计划的帐户所拥有的私有仓库。 此外,使用旧版按仓库计划的帐户无法访问 Container registry,因为这些帐户是按仓库计费的。 有关详细信息,请参阅“GitHub 的产品”。

About billing for GitHub Packages

GitHub Packages usage is free for public packages. For private packages, each account on receives a certain amount of free storage and data transfer, depending on the product used with the account. Any usage beyond the included amounts is controlled by spending limits.

如果您是每月付费的用户,您的帐户默认支出限额为 0 美元,这将防止您在达到包含的限额后额外使用存储或数据传输。 如果按发票支付帐户费用,则帐户将具有无限制的默认支出限制。 For more information, see "About spending limits."

Billing update for container image storage: The period of free use for container image storage and bandwidth for the Container registry has been extended. If you are using Container registry you'll be informed at least one month in advance of billing commencing and you'll be given an estimate of how much you should expect to pay. For more information about the Container registry, see "Working with the Container registry."

If you purchased GitHub Enterprise through a Microsoft Enterprise Agreement, you can connect your Azure Subscription ID to your enterprise account to enable and pay for GitHub Packages usage beyond the amounts including with your account. For more information, see "Connecting an Azure subscription to your enterprise."

Data transfer resets every month, while storage usage does not.

All data transferred out, when triggered by GitHub Actions, and data transferred in from any source is free. We determine you are downloading packages using GitHub Actions when you log in to GitHub Packages using a GITHUB_TOKEN.

Storage usage is shared with build artifacts produced by GitHub Actions for repositories owned by your account. For more information, see "About billing for GitHub Actions."

GitHub charges usage to the account that owns the repository where the package is published. If your account's usage surpasses these limits and you have set a spending limit above $0 USD, you will pay $0.008 USD per GB of storage per day and $0.50 USD per GB of data transfer.

For example, if your organization uses GitHub Team, allows unlimited spending, uses 150GB of storage, and has 50GB of data transfer out during a month, the organization would have overages of 148GB for storage and 40GB for data transfer for that month. The storage overage would cost $0.008 USD per GB per day or approximately $37 USD for a 31-day month. The overage for data transfer would cost $0.50 USD per GB or $20 USD.

At the end of the month, GitHub rounds your data transfer to the nearest GB.

GitHub calculates your storage usage for each month based on hourly usage per GB during that month. For example, if you use 3 GB of storage for 10 days of March and 12 GB for 21 days of March, your storage usage would be:

  • 3 GB x 10 days x (24 hours per day) = 720 GB-Hours
  • 12 GB x 21 days x (24 hours per day) = 6,048 GB-Hours
  • 720 GB-Hours + 6,048 GB-Hours = 6,768 total GB-Hours
  • 6,768 GB-Hours / (744 hours per month) = 9.0967 GB-Months

At the end of the month, GitHub rounds your storage to the nearest MB. Therefore, your storage usage for March would be 9.097 GB.

You can also use this calculation in the middle of a billing cycle, to estimate what your total usage might be for the month. For example, if you have an organization that uses GitHub Team, which provides 2 GB of free storage, and you use 0 GB for the first 5 days of April, 1.5 GB for the following 10 days, and you plan to use 3 GB for the last 15 days of the billing cycle, your projected storage usage for the month would be:

  • 0 GB x 5 days x (24 hours per day) = 0 GB-Hours
  • 0.5 GB x 10 days x (24 hours per day) = 120 GB-Hours
  • 3 GB x 15 days x (24 hours per day) = 1080 GB-Hours
  • 0 GB-Hours + 120 GB-Hours + 1080 GB-Hours = 1200 total GB-Hours
  • 1200 GB-Hours / (744 hours per month) = 1.6 GB-Months

The projected 1.6 GB of storage usage for the month would not exceed your 2 GB limit, even though your actual storage amount briefly exceeded 2 GB.

Your GitHub Packages usage shares your account's existing billing date, payment method, and receipt. To view all the subscriptions for your account on, see "Viewing your subscriptions and billing date."

您必须单独管理每个帐户的计费设置和付款功能。 您可以使用每个设置页面上的上下文切换器在个人帐户、组织帐户和企业帐户的设置之间切换。 有关详细信息,请参阅“在不同帐户的设置之间切换”。

About spending limits

如果您是每月付费的用户,您的帐户默认支出限额为 0 美元,这将防止您在达到包含的限额后额外使用存储或数据传输。 如果按发票支付帐户费用,则帐户将具有无限制的默认支出限制。

如果您的支出限额无限或高于 0 美元,您将会收到额外存储或数据传输的帐单,也称为超限费用,最高可达到您的支出限额。 您帐户中的任何优惠券都不适用于 GitHub Packages 超额费用。


To prevent exceeding your spending limit, GitHub checks your storage consumption continuously throughout the month by looking at your current usage and calculating what your projected usage will be at the end of the month if no changes are made before that time. If at any point during the billing cycle your projected monthly usage exceeds your spending limit, both GitHub Packages and GitHub Actions will be disabled to prevent overages.

You should set a spending limit that will cover your maximum projected storage usage at any given point in the billing cycle. For example, imagine you have an organization that uses GitHub Team, and you set a spending limit of $50 USD. GitHub Team provides 2 GB of free storage. For any storage you use over that amount, GitHub will charge $0.008 USD per GB per day, or approximately $0.25 USD per GB for a 31-day month. That means the $50 spending limit you set will pay for an extra 200 GB of storage in that period. If on day ten of the billing cycle you reach 202 GB of storage, the next push of a package or GitHub Actions artifact will fail, because you have reached the maximum storage amount that can be paid for by your spending limit in this billing cycle, even if your average consumption for the period is below 202 GB.

To avoid reaching your spending limit in the current billing cycle, you can delete some of your current storage usage to free up projected usage for the rest of the month. This method is more effective toward the beginning of a billing cycle. The closer you get to the end of a billing cycle, the less impact this method will have on projected monthly usage.

  • 您的帐户中包含的 GitHub Actions 和 GitHub Packages 存储空间或分钟数将不会重置,直到付款处理成功。
  • 如果在当前计费周期内,帐户中有剩余的存储空间或分钟数,则 GitHub Actions 和 GitHub Packages 将继续可用,直到所含用量全部用完。
  • 如果在当前计费周期内,帐户中所含的 GitHub Actions 和 GitHub Packages 用量已用完,则 GitHub Actions 和 GitHub Packages 都将被禁用,以防进一步超限。
