Adding New Rate

To create a new rate for a target code, you need to press Add Rate and the following fields will appear:  

FieldDescription
Src Code
Specify a source code for a new rate.

You can add a code to already chosen code deck while creating a new rate. To do it, while indicating a new one for a rule, click on the plus icon next to the respective code (see screenshot below). The plus icon will be visible if there is code deck specified previously

(warning)   Attention

Please note that rates with Src Codes are not used when termination tariffs are chosen for Dynamic Routing. This functionality is going to be reworked in the upcoming releases.


Src Code NameIndicate a source code name in case source code is not specified (available if code deck is attached). If Src Code Name is specified, Src Code field becomes disabled and vice versa
Dst Code

Indicate a destination code for a new rate.

Dst Code NameName of a destination code group (available if code deck is attached)
RatePrice per unit of a serviсe. Here you can see changes (how current rate differs from previously effective on) by clicking up/down arrows
Effective DateRate start date (newest available rate for a particular destination)
MinMinimal time of call that will be tariffed.
For example, if total call time was 20 seconds and Min is 30, then client will pay for 30 seconds of call
Int

Tariffication interval.
This parameter is used, when Min Time expires.

For instance, if call time is 26 seconds, Min is 25 and Int is 8, client will pay for 33 seconds

Extra Fields





Additional parameters are stored under gray downwards arrow icon.

  • Tag
Specify a tag for respective rates. If it's not applicable, assign a (@) tag as default.
  • Policy

This option allows selecting a rate type for a code: regular rate or an additive (extra) rate:

    • regular rate - this policy signifies a usual rate definition for the event;
    • additive (extra) rate - this policy signifies that this rate will be added to a regular rate for the event. 

During billing, the system takes one regular rate and all additive (extra) rates that are appropriate for the call.  Please note, a regular/additive rate table will be determined by accessible dynamic and static tags, used for the call. 

  • Profile

Time profile that will be used for a current rate, for example, business time, non-business time, weekends, etc.

  • End Date
After specified date, target rate will not be used
  • Setup Fee
Setup fee (charged when event duration is longer than 0 seconds)
  • Grace Volume

Time interval that will not be tariffed (free time). 

For instance, if you specified 5 sec as a Grace Time , all calls with duration up to 5 seconds (including calls with session time of 5 seconds) will be free of charge

  • Number Length

Specify a minimum and maximum length of destination number.

For example, if you have a rate of 3 USD for 123 Dst Code with indicated number length from 6 to 9, and another rate of 5 USD for the same 123 Dst Code without specified number length, all calls with a Dst Number between 6 and 9 digits will be billed by 3 USD , otherwise, by 5 USD.

  • Notes
Additional information about current rate

After you finish filling in all fields, press ОК button.

Also, you can quick export the rates by pressing Export Filtered button or opening the Export tab

Mass Rate Edit

It's possible to make a mass update of the rates by clicking on Mass Edit for the drop-down menu to appear. Then, you need to fill in the fields according to your needs. There are four general parameters that can be applied to a field.

  • preserve - the default configuration that saves the rate not edited. Leave this parameter unchanged if required;
  • set to - it allows to edit rates, for example, specify the same effective date for all rates at once, regardless of previous configurations;
  • inc for - here you can indicate how the original value increased;
  • dec for - here you can indicate how the original value decreased.

The list of mass edit fields is as follows:

Difference Status

Search by the cost changes of the rate. The following types are available to choose from drop-down list:

  • Decreased
  • Increased
  • Not changed
  • New
Status

Search by the state of the rate:

  • active
  • stashed (not confirmed). This state means that the rate is not used for the billing or routing process.
RateSearch by the rate, the price interval could be specified
Setup FeeSearch by the setup fee of the rate, the interval could be specified
End DateSearch by the expiration date of the rate
Min VolumeSearch by the minimal volume of eveny that will be tariffed
IntervalSearch by the tariffication interval
ProfileSearch by the time profile of the rate
Grace VolumeSearch by the interval of the free time
Number LengthSearch by the length of destination number


(warning)   Attention

When you filter rates by the state (for example, current/new, future for, current on), stashed (not-confirmed) rates will not show up in the search results. To include these rates, choose all from the drop-down list.

Stashed rates

If you see the rate rows colored in yellow, it means these rates are in pending state and you need to confirm them all (press Confirm Filtered Rates button). Not confirmed rated appears while import process.
