Adding Pricing Information

Add Pricing Information

In each included pricing, except for pricings of Exclude type, you can add different pricing items in the following categories: Case Rollup, Case Flow, Analytics, Processing, Users, Tasks.

Note: You can find additional information about all pricing item types for each of the billing categories in Appendix A.

All pricing items have additional information that can be edited by a user – Friendly Name, Billing Code, Description, E-Code, Cost Code. (see Settings section – Pricing Item Types)

When an item is selected, pricing item metadata becomes visible in the layout, as well.

A corresponding Unit must be selected when adding a pricing item. The Unit will be applied to the pricing item in the report.

  • Count – the item will be charged according to its quantity. (applicable for counts)
  • In Whole – the item will be charged in whole, the total charge will not be dependent on its quantity and the price will not be multiplied by the usage amount. (applicable for counts)

Note: In Whole unit is calculated per each workspace if there is some usage for the specific item.

  • TB – the item will be charged according to its usage in TB. (applicable for sizes)
  • GB – the item will be charged according to its usage in GB. (applicable for sizes)
  • MB – the item will be charged according to its usage in MB. (applicable for sizes)

Each billing item can be set as billable or non-billable in the report depending on if Billable field is ticked or not.

  • checkitem will be considered as billable in the report meaning that the item will be included in the reports with its usage along with the corresponding calculations according to the price and discount.
  • checkUnit Price and Discount fields will not be present and the item will be included in the reports only with its usage.

Price Type field is available for all billable items (except for Tasks billing category).

Select Price Type value:

  • Single Price – when selected, the Unit Price value will be applied.
  • Tiered Price – when selected, an additional section Price Tiers appears:

The tiered price functionality allows setting up to 3 thresholds for each billing item and charging according to the items’ usage, by using different prices for each threshold (tier).

    • Select Tier Type:
      • Exclusive – the item will be charged according to the price tier in which its usage amount fits in.
      • Inclusive – the item’s usage will be distributed among the tiers and each part of the usage amount will be charged according to the price in the corresponding tier.
    • Add a Tier:
      • Name – the field is read only. The Tier Name will be automatically generated when the Tier is saved. It consists of the End Bracket value + Tier Fee Type + Tier Price.
      • End Bracket – the value specifies the end of the bracket. This is the usage amount value up to which the corresponding price will be applied.
      • Select Tier Fee Type:

– Flat Fee – when selected, the price, specified in the tier, will be applied as in whole, without multiplying it by the usage amount, which fits in the tier.

– Dynamic Fee– when selected, the price, specified in the tier, will be multiplied by the usage amount, which fits in the tier.

      • Tier Price – the price that will be applied for the tier.

Note: You can select from previously added tiers or you can add a new one ad-hoc by clicking on the Add hyperlink.

Note: The End Bracket of the last Tier Pricing must always be 9999999999.

Note: All Price Tiers can be reviewed under Thresholds tab in MaxBilling. You can add new Price Tiers by clicking New MxB Tier Pricing button.

Note: When the Tiered Price option for Price Type is selected, the Unit Price field remains required, although it will not be applied. You can set it with 0.00 or any value.

Note: When the Tiered Price option for Price Type is selected, the Discount field will not be applied in the reports.

Note: The Price Tiers are being applied workspace by workspace. Therefore all reports calculations are performed on a workspace basis, when Price Tiers are used.

E.g. If you have set a tier from 0 to 10 GB with a price 5 for a specific billing item, the first 10 GB of this item from each Workspace will be charged by price 5
