Platform as a Service (PaaS) billing needs an effective billing strategy. In this paper we proceeded a literature review and proposed a new billing model for a PaaS provider. Our billing model allows charges to PaaS clients in several policies, from specific plans to fully pay-per-use. We automated our billing model in a monitoring and management software tool. The model and the tool were validated through a case study in a software development company. The results indicated that our model is useful and preferable in relation to current billing policies and can be used in PaaS management.
