Rate Lookup

Click the  icon to enter the Rate Lookup interface using which you can easily view rate information for a tariff(s) of a particular product.

Name

The logical designation of the product.

Type

The product type can be the following:

  • Main Product – a basic product that assigns all the basic services that are available to your customers.

  • Add-on Product with precedence level – an additional product by which you can increase or limit the services provided to your customers.

Add-on products have precedence over the main product, so no matter what is defined within the main product, it will be overridden by settings defined within add-on products (this applies only to the options that are supplied with add-on products).

In order to differentiate the add-on products, there is also a “precedence level” parameter for each add-on product. If there are more than one add-on product assigned to an account, they will be sorted according to the specified precedence level.

Currency

The currency in which the product is maintained.
