Cloud computing is a prototype which takes the new form of utility computing. The on-demand flexible service and pay-per-use schemes provided by the Cloud providers attract the customers to move towards Cloud computing environment. Both the service providers and the customers will receive the economic benefits only when the available resources are correctly scheduled. Due to commercialization, the cloud environment emphasizes the need for the development of new algorithms for better economic factors. This is done by the task and data scheduler in the workflow systems. In this paper, an algorithm Customer Facilitated Cost-based Scheduling (CFCSC) algorithmis proposed to favor the Cloud customers with economic cost. The CFCSC algorithm outstrips the HEFT in terms of load balance, minimum cost and less complex cost function. Also, both CFCSC and HEFT algorithms have the same makespan.
