Understanding Provider Pricing and Billing

This topic describes the basic billing and invoicing information for partner accounts, including customer billing.

Megaport billing features let you review your invoiced costs and manage access to billing information.

  • A billing market was set up for your company profile when you registered your account and created a company profile.
  • The partner account receives a monthly invoice directly from Megaport for all of its managed accounts.
  • All managed accounts are invoiced by the partner.
  • Each managed account is identified with a unique account number, called a managed account reference.
  • All managed account references are rolled up into a consolidated invoice for the partner account.
  • Each partner is responsible for all charges incurred by themselves and all managed accounts.

Discounts

  • All services are billed at the Megaport list price in VantageTransact.
  • Discounts aligned to a partner commission are calculated at the time of billing.

Deals

  • PartnerVantage approved deals can be associated with services in VantageTransact. Deal discounts are calculated for invoicing.

  • To register approved deals and associate them with managed accounts, see your partner sales representative.

  • For details, see Associating a Deal with a Service.

Taxes

  • All charges to the partner account and the managed account are invoiced with the partner account tax treatment and any exemptions for the billing market applied.
  • Partners incur tax remitted by Megaport.
  • Resellers incur managed account taxes remitted by the partner.
  • Taxes are applied in VantageTransact against the final billed amount.

For details on taxes, see Understanding Your Megaport Partner Invoice.
