Edit one time revenue model pricing

Different pricing configuration options are available for each revenue model (free, one-time, recurring, and tiered). This page explains how to configure pricing for the one time revenue model. For descriptions of all of the revenue models, see Select revenue models

To edit one time revenue model pricing

Step 1. If you are not already on the Manage Add-On Pricing page, click Live Products > {productName} | Edit > Connections & Pricing | Pricing. The Manage Add-on Pricing page opens for the selected add-on product. 

Step 2. If you have not already done so, from the Revenue Model drop-down list, select One time. The One Time Price section appears.

The following configuration sections are displayed in the Payment Plans area:

  • Free trial period and Expired free trial grace period (see Edit free trial periods)
  • Flat rate price
  • Price per unit
  • Usage restrictions
  • Setup fee

Step 3. Determine which one of the following price options you want to configure for this add-on:

  • Flat Rate Price—The add-on is sold to customers for a flat fee. When customers purchase the add-on, quantity is not applicable (they purchase an implicit quantity of one). For example, $5.00 for the add-on.
  • Price Per Unit—The add-on is sold to customers at a price per custom-defined unit (for example, megabytes or users) and customers specify how many units they wish to purchase. For example, a customer who selects an extra storage add-on may choose a quantity of 5 megabytes at a price of $5.00 per megabyte. This is a one-time charge.
  • Price and Usage Ranges/Restrictions—Instead of a simple Price Per Unit configuration, customers are charged a different price depending on the quantity they purchase. These prices are configured with quantity ranges. For example, $1.00/megabyte when a quantity within the range of 5 to 100 megabytes is purchased, and $0.50 per megabyte when more than 100 megabytes are purchased. You can configure an unlimited number of these ranges. Note that with this example, the minimum value in the first range limits customers to purchases of 5 megabytes or more.

Proceed to one of the next three steps, depending on your choice.

Step 4. (Optional) Configure flat rate price:

a. If the Flat Rate Price section is not visible, click Add a Flat Rate Price. The section appears.

b. Enter the flat price.

The price you set here will be charged to the customer once.

c. Proceed to Step 10.

Step 5. (Optional) Configure price per unit:

a. If the Price per Unit section is not open, click Add Price per Unit. The Price Per Unit area appears.

b. Define the unit type. The default is set as Users, but you can change this to meet your needs. Many unit types are preconfigured, including megabytes, gigabytes, contracts, boxes, data points, and others. To search for the unit type you need, start typing the unit type name in the per field, and options autopopulate.

Note: The unit type you select here is the unit used for the remaining configuration in the Price Per Unit section.

c. Enter the per-unit price to charge per configured unit type.

d. Proceed to Step 10.

Step 6. (Optional) Configure price and usage ranges:

a. If the Price per Unit section is not open, click Add Price per Unit. The Price Per Unit area appears.

b. Define the unit type. The default is set as Users, but you can change this to meet your needs. Many unit types are preconfigured, including megabytes, gigabytes, contracts, boxes, data points, and others. To search for the unit type you need, start typing the unit type name in the per field, and options autopopulate.

Note: The unit type you select here is the unit used for the remaining configuration in the Price Per Unit section.

c. Click Add Usage Restrictions. Min and Max range fields appear.

d. To configure the price per unit for the range, in the box that appears below the currency type, enter the amount per unit for this quantity range (you define the Min and Max of this range in the next step).

e. To define the minimum and maximum number of units for this range, in the Min and Max fields, define the quantity range to which this per unit price (configured in the previous step) will apply.

  • For example, 1-100. This means that the user pays the price indicated in the currency type box above for each of the first 100 megabytes. If the minimum number of megabytes that can be purchased is 5 and this rate is applicable to a maximum of 100 users, the first range is entered as 5-100.
  • One or more ranges can be configured.

f. (Optional) To add another range, click Add another usage range and return to step 6d. 

g. When all of the ranges that you need are configured, proceed to step 7.

Step 7. (Optional) Configure these optional settings:

  • Restrict purchases to increments of—To enable, enter a value other than 1. You can also accept the default of 1.

When enabled, users must buy the product in the configured increment. The input field for customers is converted to a drop-down list. For example, the customer might see a drop-down list of 5, 10, 15, and 20 units.

  • Display price per increment—To enable, select the checkbox and set the minimum quantity to purchase to match the increment. Or, leave the checkbox cleared (the default state) to leave it disabled.

When enabled, this changes the display on the product Pricing & Editions page to reflect the cost based on the minimum number of required units, instead of the price per individual unit. For example, if you set a minimum of 5, and an increment of 5, at $1/user, the customer sees a price of $5/5 users instead of the normal $1/user.

Step 8. (Optional) If you configure two or more usage ranges, an additional field appears: Keep pricing tier with volume. Select it to enable the option. You can also accept the default which leaves it disabled.

In this case, tier refers to a usage price range.

To understand this option, consider this example: Price ranges are configured as follows: For the first 1-10,000 API calls, the price is set at $0 per call, and every call above 10,000 is charged at 10 cents.

  • Checkbox selected—For the first 10,000 API calls, the user is charged $0. However, after the 10,000 call threshold is passed, the user is charged $.10 for every call reported during the billing period, including the first 10,000. So for 10,001 calls, the user is charged $10,001 X $0.10, for a total charge of $1000.10.
  • Checkbox cleared—There is no charge for the first 10,000 API calls. For each API call above the 10,000 threshold, those additional calls are charged at $.10 per call. Therefore, for 10,001 calls, the user is charged $.10.

Step 9. (Optional) Configure another usage rate:

a. Click Include another usage rate. A new Price Per Unit section appears.

b. Return to step 6 to configure the new usage rate.

Step 10. (Optional) Click Add a Setup Fee to activate this optional feature. The Setup Fee section appears. Enter a value.

This fee is only due at the first checkout and is not billed again. Purchases of additional quantities do not incur this fee. If customers cancel and repurchase the add-on, they are charged the setup fee again.

Step 11. Click Save Plan to save this configuration. A message confirms that the configuration is saved.

Step 12. Continue to Edit included items.
