We hope this simple user guide will help you to understand the core features and functionality within Online Billing.

If you have any questions or comments or need help gaining access to Online Billing, please contact us using the information in the help and support section of our Online Billing, the contact details on our main website or the details located on any supplied invoice.

The home page provides instant access to information relating to the selected billing month. Online Billing opens showing the latest invoice (Billing Period) and if you want to review other months, you can select them from here.

The home page will show various sections as defined below. Depending on the type of invoice selected (Monthly or One-off ) different controls will show in this section. If a selected Billing Period has a Monthly type all sections will show, however if the Billing Period only contains One-off types, then all sections other than the ‘Invoice Summary for Billing Period’ sections will be hidden.

If enabled, this section provides you with unbilled usage information as processed overnight for the previous day’s usage. The graphs sum the unbilled usage until that usage has been billed on an invoice.

At that point, the unbilled usage graphs are updated to remove what was unbilled and has now been billed. The values shown are not cost-related, but rather as an indication of the volume of usage for data, voice and SMS where those usage items have occurred. If no usage has occurred for a given usage type, the unbilled usage so far column will be blank.

  • This shows the three groups of the usage information for unbilled usage so far for the month compared with last month’s actual billed usage.

CLI Summary
