  2. Click or tap on Partner in the navigation menu, then select Billing.
  3. The Bill Summary page opens.
  4. Review the details below for more information about each section of the Bill Summary page.

Bill Summary

The Bill Summary displays the number of active licenses or application installs (Active Companies) associated with the partner and the number of paid apps (Paid Apps) to which the partner is subscribed. An estimated monthly subscription cost (Monthly Estimate) is also provided. This estimate is calculated by multiplying the subscription cost by the number of active licenses and adding the price of each paid app or module. 

( Subscription Cost X Number of Companies ) + ( Cost of Paid App X Number of Paid Apps ) = Current Monthly Estimate

The Monthly Estimate may not be the same as the bill total.





Active Companies

The total number of active companies (or licenses) associated with the partner. This number is the sum of all companies with the Active checkbox selected in the corresponding Company Details section of the Company Settings tab. Those companies without a check in the Active checkbox do not appear in this calculation nor do they appear in the detailed list of active companies as they are considered inactive companies. 






To view all active and inactive companies, click the Company drop-down on the side menu to display all companies that have been associated with the Partner. Select a company to view more details.

The number of paid apps (Best Price Now or Live Chat) to which the partner has subscribed. This number is the sum of each instance of a Paid App. Example: If an agency has 4 active clients and 1 client subscribes to Live Chat while another client subscribes to both, Live Chat and Best Price Now, the Paid Apps would display 3.

Monthly Estimate

The estimated monthly cost to access the platform, maintain each install, and provide additional services through paid apps.

Frequently Asked Questions

When is the partner or reseller billed?

Subscriptions for each company or install are charged at 2 separate times. The first charge occurs at the initial approval of the install. This charge is pro-rated from the date approved through the end of the billing cycle. The second and recurring charge occurs at the beginning of the first full billing cycle. This monthly recurring subscription fee includes charges for all active installs and paid apps. Subscription charges occur on a monthly basis. The monthly subscription begins on the date of the first approved install. Example: If the first (free) company was installed and approved on January 14, the monthly billing cycle would run from January 14 to February 14. If a second company was approved on January 22, the agency will be charged immediately for services from January 22 - February 14. On the next full billing cycle, February 14, the agency will be billed the entire amount for all active installs and paid applications.

Is the partner billed for the entire month upfront?

Yes. Subscriptions are billed for the entire month upfront based on the number of active companies and the number of paid applications installed. New installs are charged upon approval and billed a pro-rated amount based on the number of days remaining in the current billing cycle. Example: A new install is approved on January 22 but the current cycle is from January 14 - February 14. The new install would be immediately billed and charged for January 22 to February 14. The next billing cycle of February 14 through March 14, would include all active installs beginning February 14.

What is the partner's billing cycle?

The monthly subscription begins on the date of the first approved install. Example: If the first (free) company was installed and approved on January 14, the monthly billing cycle would run from January 14 to February 14. If the cycle begins on the 31st of a month and the next month only has 30 days, the charge will occur on the last day of the month. For instance, if the cycle renews on January 31, the next cycle will renew on February 28. 

Only a partial payment is displayed in the Billing History?

The initial install of a new company may appear as a partial payment or pro-rated charge if the company was installed and approved during a current billing cycle. Additionally, if a company cancels a paid application or the service entirely, a pro-rated credit for the unused time is applied to the agency's account. This credit is then applied toward any approved future install or paid application. Note: Monetary refunds are not provided.

A company displays the green "Free Company" indicator but the agency is still being billed?

There are many reasons why an agency may be billed when there is a "Free Company" indicator. The most common reasons are: a paid application is enabled, an Agency Access Fee is being charged, there is another active company or a previous balance on the account was unpaid.
