How is the build minutes calculated, when using parallel steps?

I have a pipeline which runs for around 8 mins. But since I have a parallel step included in pipeline, if we count the total time for each steps it comes around 12 mins. How does the bitbucket consider the build time for this situation? 
since the total time for pipeline is 8 mins will I be billed for 8 mins ? or the time for each steps(including steps which run in parallel) consolidated gives 12mins, so I will be billed for 12 mins? Can you confirm which would apply?

Hi Shyam,

I've noticed that you are a member of a Standard team workspace, therefore you are entitled to Standard-level support from our support team and do not need to reach out to community. In future you can avoid delays in response times by raising a ticket with us directly using your team workspace URL, Bitbucket Cloud as the product and Technical Issues & Bugs as the reason:

To answer your question, each step is counted towards your build minute usage - regardless of whether or not they are parallel.

For example, if you had parallel steps where StepA takes 8 minutes and StepB takes 4 minutes - 12 minutes would be billed.

Hope this helps.
