Rates

Under Rate tables we associate prices with prefixes and categories. It is divided into Customers and Providers rates. Customers rates will be configured with sell prices and provider rates with buy prices. To simplify things, we can describe customers rates like "price of a call to number like +9876 is 0.1$ per minute" and providers rates like "we pay for voice provider 0.1$ per minute for call to number like +9876 so later in configs we can add some markup let's say 20% to have a profit".

  • Customers rates - define final tariffication for end customers;

  • Providers rates - define an initial tariffication.

To configure rates navigate to Voice → Rate tables → Customers/Providers and click on Add button located at the top right of the table. You need to add a rate table first:

Here select name of a rate table and define if the tax is included or excluded:

Once this done, click on the view & configure rates button:

Here we can see a lot of buttons to click. On the left you can switch between rates for calls, messages or data and on the right side you can find buttons to add some rate manually (Add), Load rates from another plan (in case you have another rate table you can use it and just copy rates to a current table), Import (import a file with rates into this table), Export (Export rate table), Mass update (apply some massive update for range of rates in the current table):
