Customers often ask what billing options Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator supports and if FCO can integrate with 3rd party billing systems.
FCO was built from the ground up based on granular Telco billing engine principles and includes its own end to end billing engine. Customer sign up, credit card payments, and fully branded automated invoices are provided by FCO out of the box.
This allows FCO to provide not only it's own very granular built-in billing engine but also allows connection to 3rd party solutions via the API.
Today, FCO fully supports Hostbill as an external billing platform. Integration with further 3rd party solutions like “WHMCS” and Ubersmith are also possible and are on FCO's development roadmap.
The built in Billing is able to meter & bill on a number of metrics which are as follows:
- Network Transfer
- Chargeable Image
- Disk I/O
- IP Address
- Image Template
All of this can be done every down to the minute however your customer gets billed every hour. This means that even if the customer used 10 min of the service they still get billed for the 10 mins using the service.
