PAYG Working Logic

1. Reports are run on the client’s account every 30 minutes.

  • Reports are imported approximately every 24 hours for Pay As You Go services. These reports are built individually for each client, depending on the specific services that they use.
  • Client usage is added to the system as a billable item if the usage is above 1 GB.

2. The amount billable is compared with the client’s credit balance every hour.

  • If the sum of billable items is less than $15 or the available credit balance, an invoice is generated and paid using the same.
  • If the client does not have enough credit to pay the balance and the invoice cannot be paid in full, services will be suspended 24 hours after an alert email is sent.
  • Once the client use 70% of their available credit, usage alerts are sent. Alerts will continue to be sent until the client use 200% of their available credit balance. At this point, services will be suspended immediately.

3. Client account with due payments are monitored every hour. Pay As You Go services are set to be suspended after 24 hours if invoices are not paid.

4. Upon paying all due invoices, all Pay As You Go services for the client are re-activated automatically.
