[edit] Description

Tariffs are sets of rates (prices) to different destinations. There are three types of tariffs: providers wholesale (inbound), users wholesale (outbound) and users retail (outbound).

[edit] Tariff types

There are two types of tariffs – Wholesale and Retail. Note that Tariffs for Providers type are also Wholesale. The difference between wholesale and retail tariffs is in the way rates are set for destinations.

In wholesale tariffs, rates can be set to every destination possible (by prefix). In retail tariffs, destinations are grouped, which makes it possible to have lower rates. Wholesale and retail tariffs are used in different situations, and each type has its advantages and disadvantages.

The advantage for wholesale providers is the possibility of entering different rates for different destinations (prefixes). It is useful to set this tariff when you resell services to other providers.

If your clients are retail end-users, it is better to use the retail tariff. They are easier to manage and understand for the final user.

[edit] By Provider Tariffs (Dynamic Tariff Type)

Dynamic User Tariff by Provider Tariff allows to avoid repetitive work with Rates import for End Users every time Provider changes his Price sheets. When this Tariff is assigned to User, his rates will depend on Provider's rates. You can manage User's billing by changing delta value and delta percent in this type of Tariff. For example, if you set delta percent to be 10%, then User will be billed by Provider's rate plus 10% of that rate. Your profit will be 10% of your selfcost.
