We’re happy to announce a new feature for managing your usage and billing information — Billing Groups, now available in the Mission Control Portal and Telnyx API.

This new feature offers a better way to manage your customer sub-accounts, making it easy to add and manage billing groups to categorize usage reports and end-of-month invoice records.

Billing Groups allow you to separate your phone numbers and usage for a specific end customer, this will be particularly useful for resellers of our services with customers of their own. Sub-accounts can now be billed the exact inbound and outbound usage for the month, depending on when numbers and profiles were assigned to the Billing Group.

Benefits of Billing Groups

  • Billing of Sub-Accounts: Resellers of our services who have customers of their own will find this feature particularly useful for billing the exact usage, partial and recurring charges for the month.
  • Reporting & Metadata: Billing Group information is stored within the metadata of the corresponding CDR. This provides for easier filtering of records by customer.

Setting Up Billing Groups

Set up Billing Groups in minutes with the Mission Control Portal. You can start creating Billing Groups in four simple steps:
