Telnyx adds GBP billing to Mission Control
Today, Telnyx is delighted to announce that our customers can now choose to pay and see pricing in pounds Sterling (GBP). This new functionality is part of a wider multi-currency initiative, which aims to make the Telnyx platform easier to use, for both new and existing customers.
For a UK-based business, working in GBP will allow you to better understand your pricing as it appears on our website and in the Mission Control Portal, making your invoices more clear and predictable. More importantly, it makes life easier for Telnyx users who bill their customers in GBP. Telnyx users will now be able to streamline their finance operations by attributing the Telnyx cost to the spending of their customers directly.
This billing feature release comes after the announcement that we have achieved full PSTN replacement in the UK. Our dedicated network point of presence in London, international call routing, and a more reliable UK +44 number search and ordering experience, means that our UK customers can now avail of a fully-featured telephony solution in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
How to activate GBP billing on your Telnyx account
To get started, you’ll need to sign up for a Telnyx account. Once you’ve verified your email address and logged into your Mission Control Portal, we’ll ask you a few questions about how you’ll be using Telnyx. Simply select GBP from the drop-down menu in this box, and that’s it! Your pricing and invoicing will appear in GBP for all usage associated with that specific account.

Billing Groups Released
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:
- Navigate to the My Account section, located within the dropdown in the top right of the Mission Control Portal.
- Select Billing Groups from the top navigation bar.
- Enter the name of the Billing Group.
- Click Create.
Once you’ve created your Billing Groups, you can start assigning them to numbers and outbound profiles within their corresponding sections. You may also label outbound calls dynamically through a custom SIP header.
