Billing for Cloudflare Workers and Workers KV

If you are an Enterprise customer, reach out to your account team to confirm pricing details.

Workers is now free to enable. To protect our systems against abuse there are surge limits in place for domains without subscriptions.

If a billing account has not yet been set up, once the limit is reached an error message will appear. Only requests that hit a Worker script will be accounted for in the limits and in billing. Since Cloudflare Workers runs before the Cloudflare cache, the caching of a request still incurs costs.
