Paying. One downside is their service is more expensive than a CDN, which you can work around, but at the expense of some convenience. Always trade offs.

For this project it has been the bandwidth. We get plenty of traffic and even though we serve plenty of images from other CDN sources, the Cloudinary ones are still enough to be costly. The economics still work out okay because traffic is associated with revenue etc. but needs to be optimized more in the future.
