Invoices

This section describes:

  • Billing processes and procedures in WACM
  • How to interpret the invoice data that is available in WACM
  • How to appropriately invoice your customers

Billing Overview

A control account can have one of two associated billing plans:

  • Standard Pay-Go
    A Pay-Go account pays for storage as it is consumed.

  • Reserve Capacity Storage (RCS)
    An RCS account has a fixed storage value based on its contract before overages are charged.

In order to gather the most accurate billing information, filter the relevant data from the relevant tabs (as described below). Export this data and utilize the sub-account-by-sub-account detailed usage data.

Displaying Pay-Go Invoices

A Pay-Go account invoice is displayed on the Invoices page where you will find pre-calculated usage based on Wasabi’s $5.99 list price. The pre-calculated Total is made up of several components, which are also conveniently calculated on the same row for each sub-account.

  1. Click the Invoices tab:

The Invoices page is displayed. For example:

18021802
  1. Optionally, filter the list to more precisely search for invoices by the sub-account name or the control invoice number. Select one of these options (Name or Control Invoice #) on the Filter By drop-down. Then, select one or a combination of name(s) or control invoice number(s).

📘

Note

Filtering for the Name of the sub-account will return all sub-invoices associated with that sub-account. Filtering for the Control Invoice # will return all sub-invoices associated with a single control invoice.

A Control Invoice is essentially a master invoice, which is the number of the rolled-up invoice.

In this example, invoices that include the text "116" and have the Name "Sub-Account 123" are listed.

For example, if you bill your customers at the beginning of the month for the previous month, select the last record of the previous month: The October 31st record for a November 1st invoice date will provide you with the most recent storage stats prior to invoicing.

  2. Simply add together the Active Storage and Deleted Storage columns for the billing day of choice.

Monthly RSC Sub-Account Usage Formula

For RCS accounts, calculating storage is as simple as adding Active Storage and Deleted Storage for a given day. Note that a “given day” is the monthly period billing date of choice for the customer. For example, if the customer wants to be invoiced on the last day of each month, the usage calculation needs to be a calculation of total storage on that specific day only.

The monthly RCS Sub-Account usage formula is:

(Active Storage) + (Deleted Storage)
