[edit] Create a Dial Plan

Now that we have a Calling Card Group and Cards, we need to create rules on how to handle all these cards.

For that, we need to create a Dial Plan. Let's go to SETTINGS –> Billing –> DIDs –> Dial Plans for resellers it is Routing -> DIDs -> Dial Plans and click Image:icon_add.png New Dial Plan.

In the new window, we enter the following details:


Name is just for informational purposes. Number and PIN length should match the settings of our newly created Calling Card Group.

We want IVR to ask for the number and PIN, so we leave "Ask only PIN" unchecked. IVR will tell the remaining time and balance.

IVR will ask for number/PIN and destination three times at most:


[edit] Assign a DID to the Dial Plan

In the last window, we see that we have no DID(s) assigned to our Dial Plan.

We need to go to SETTINGS –> Billing –> DIDs, for resellers it is Routing -> DIDs select some available DIDs and click the Image:icon_edit.png icon:


Here we select our Calling Card Test DP and click the Image:icon_check.png confirmation mark.


The new window shows the status of our action:


[edit] Mark Card as Sold

In order to be able to use Cards, they should be "sold", i.e. ready for usage.

Lets make one Card "sold" for testing.

Go back to the Cards list and click the Image:icon_money.png icon chosen Card line. Click the Buy icon:


... and Confirm the purchase:


Now this Card is marked as "Sold" (Image:icon_check.png) and can be used.

[edit] Conclusion

That's it. The Calling Card engine is ready to serve calls.

In our example, number 37063042438 is the Access number to be dialed to reach IVR.

When you dial this number (in the example), IVR will ask for the card number/PIN to be entered and follows all other Calling Card logic.
