Hi There:

I have almost done with the initial setup except one problem don't know how to resolve this.

I have got the Rate Chart from my trunk/termination provider, it is very long list of rate to different countries against different prefix. The scenario is: My subscribers they would call different destinations with different prefixes and if I want to create rates, rate card and the clan plan it will take ages and there is a chance of mistakes and maintaining it will be a gigantic tasks.

Now in this sort of situation is there a way out where I can import a the rate chart (from my trunk/termination provider) and step a single call plan with single rate card with single rate where I can configure it a certain way that when a customer calls a2billing checks the destination and prefix and the it matches with the rate (rate chart from trunk provider) and bills customer a certain percentage added to the purchase cost.

It would be great help if anyone can.

Thanks again.

Regards

Masudur Rahman

Hi

I'd advise building something outside of A2Billing to manage the creation of your rate cards, maybe in MS Access?

I'd advise against a simple percentage markup, you make next to no money on the cheap popular rates, and and obscene amount of profit on your high cost rates making them uncompetitive.

Thanks Jroper:

Please purdon my ignorance but can you please tell me how exactly am I gonna make the rate chart in ms. I believe it'd be coma separated but what is the sequence and what are the fields as well along with country code etc.

Also, if I import that file to a rate RATECARD and assign that RATECRAD to a CALLPLAN which is assigned to the customers will it work in a scenario where customers will be billed according to the rate specified in the RATECARD matched with the prefix?

Please advise

Kind Regards

Hi

The output format is described in the A2billing rate import section, you can see an example on our Demo at http://demo.asterisk2billing.org/a2b_ad ... &section=6
