Defining Price Points for a Charge
Once you create charges, you can start adding multiple price points for each currency. To define a price point for a charge, follow these steps:
Click Product Catalog > Charges. Select the charge for which you are creating price points.
On the details page, the Pricing section displays all the currencies that you have configured. Go to the currency that you want to add for this charge, and click Set Price.
In the Create a Price Point page, you can modify the basic attributes of the charge's price point such as External Name, Internal Name, and Plan Price Point ID.
In the Pricing section, you can configure the pricing attributes of the price point such as:
- Pricing Model: Choose your preferred pricing model in which you want to charge your customers.
- Price: Based on the pricing model that you choose, you can specify the price for the charge's price point.
Under Customer facing info, you can do the following:
Add a Description & Invoice notes for this particular Charge.
Taxes: If Taxes have been configured, you can choose to exempt a charge price point from taxes by unchecking This charge price point is subject to taxes. If you are choosing to keep the plan taxable, choose a tax profile for it. This would determine — during invoicing — what taxes are applied to the price of the charge.
