Prerequisite: To configure your credits, you will need to have connected your events first so usage can be detected

To get started with credits, you should create a credit product first, where you will specify the events that rule the consumption according to your chosen events.

1

Select create new, product and choose the credit product

2

Product configuration

You can set a limit to warn of a low balance and set-up which event will consume credits on the customer’s balance

3

Pricing configuration

For credits, the pricing type is bundle pricing, a given price for a number of credits. You can also choose to display different purchase options on the customer’s portal

Once your credit product is setup, you can now enable a credit balance and link their credit usage straight away. Note that it can also be done via api.

1

On the customer's profile, go to the “Credits” tab and click on “Add credit balance”

2

Credit balance form

Here you can also change the name, choose the starting balance and credit warning limit. It won’t override the value that you previously set at the product level

3

Once the balance is created, you will be able to see the most recent consumption made by your customer, as well as top up or retain usage manually via the interface if you wish

In the next iteration, you will be able to add credit products directly to a subscription
