STEP 4 : ADD RATE ITEM CREATED RATE CHART
- After adding tariff chart, you will see the following page.
- Click on “rates” tab and then Add Rates. You will get following page.
- Please fill up the form with correct data in specified field
|Rates per Minute :||The amount of money you want to charge for per minute call, i.e. $0.0200 for Turkey Proper (90).|
|Rates per Call :||The amount you want to charge per call regardless the call duration. This is sort of fixed cost. Leave it 0 for now.|
|Destination :||Destination code of this rate plan i.e. 90 for Turkey Proper|
|Grace :||Number of initial seconds that will not be billed if call get disconnected within that time., i.e. if you set 10 here and if any call get disconnected less than or equal 10 seconds, it will not be billed. You can leave it 0 for now.|
|Minimum Duration :||Your least expected bill time for a call, i.e. if you set 30 here, it will bill minimum 30 second regardless the duration. For example, if a call gets disconnected on 12 seconds, still it will bill for 30 seconds.|
|Pulse :||Increment of time duration after minimum duration. For example, if minimum duration is set 30 seconds and pulse is set 6 seconds, after first 30 seconds, billing will be counted for every 6 seconds. So, for 31 seconds of call, bill will be for 36 seconds.|
|Start of Time Slot :||The time of the day when the rate chart will come into effect. If your server time is set to GMT as time zone, and set 00 HR 00 MIN 00 SEC, the rate will come into effect from GMT 0 hour. If you set anything else, it will follow the timing exactly.|
|End of time slot :||Same as start time, this is the time when the rate will go out of effect.|
|Seconds per minute :||We have 60 seconds in a minute as standard, but some people prefer to set less second or more second in a minute to take control over profit. You can set number of seconds in a minute here as you wish. For now, set it 60.|
|Day of Week :||Days of week when the rate is in effect. If you remove Sunday from the list, the rate offered will not be effective for Sunday.|
|Currency :||The currency of this rate charged like it could be USD, Euro etc.|
- After you finish filling up the form; click on Create Rate Button.
We are done with rate item creation into the tariff chart. Now you have to create another tariff chart for your buying rate or provider/supplier rate. You can do that following the same procedure.
You can access the tariff chart from Rates link from navigation menu as well. Also, for big tariff charts, you don’t need to create all rate items manually, you can upload tariff chart from *.csv format files (any spreadsheet can provide this Comma Separated Value output).
