# What is a Wholesale Tariff?

This tariff is a price list which you get from your provider, later you can transform this tariff into retail or user wholesale tariffs. Without a transformation this tariff cannot be assigned to user.

# Min Time

Min(imal) Time is the minimum time that will be billed if a call is answered.

For example:

• Min Time = 10s
• If the actual length of a call is <= 10s, billsec = 10.
• If the actual length of a call is > 10s, then billsec = actual call length.

 Actual call length Call time which will be billed 1 10 2 10 ... 10 9 10 10 10 11 11 12 12 ... ...

# Increment

An Increment is the amount of time in which a call is billed. It is counted in seconds.

For example, assume that:

• A particular call lasts for 15 seconds.
• The rate for 1 min is (for the sake of simplicity) 1 EUR/min.

Then:

• If the increment is 1, then the call length will be counted as 15s and the call price will be 0.25 EUR (1/60*15). As the increment is 1, the call can be 1, 2, 3... in length. 15s is the exact length of the call.
• If the increment is 10, then the call length will be counted as 20s and the call price will be 0.333 EUR (1/60*20). As the increment is 10, the call can be 10, 20, 30... in length. 20s is nearest to 15.
• If the increment is 20, then the call length will be counted as 20s and the call price will be 0.333 EUR (1/60*20). As the increment is 20, the call can be 20, 40, 60... in length. 20s is nearest to 15.
