When I setup my ratecard here I only created 1 rate to Leicester in the UK. Ok for testing but not much use in the real world! So how are we going to enter all of the rates we need – the answer is to import them. Many ITSP (Internet Telephony Service Providers) publish a rate file that you can download. I’m going to use the callwithus (my provider) rate file that you can download from here.
After we’ve created a trunk we need to create a ratecard and assign it to a call plan. This is the main part of the billing application and also the most complicated!
Initially I’m just going to create a ratecard that allows calls Leicester in the UK. The dialling code for Leicester is 0116 so the international prefix would be 44116 (44 being for the UK)
Creating a Ratecard
First click on the RATECARD menu on the left hand side of the screen
Then give your ratecard a name. I called mine “test-rate-card”
Assign the ratecard to use the trunk we created here
And click on CONFIRM DATA
