Understanding Pricing Bands

Pricing Bands

Note

The Pricing Bands feature is presently available only for the Web Services Product.

Pricing Bands allow pricing to be determined based on usage of various resource parameters. These resource parameters are:

  • Number of Email Accounts

  • Amount of Web Space

  • Amount of Data Transfer

  • Number of Website Builder Pages

This ensures that you only get proportionally charged when either:

  • your Customers purchase small Plans, and/or

  • your Sub-Resellers purchase small Plans on behalf of their Customers.

The following can be interpreted from the above table:

  • If you set a Plan (for Customers) with 10 MB of Web Space, 1 GB Data Transfer and 5 Email Accounts, then you would be charged at USD 1 per month. This is because this Plan matches Band 1's pricing set by Verve Logic for you.

  • If you set a Plan (for Customers) with 20 MB of Web Space, 2 GB Data Transfer and 5 Email Accounts, then you would be charged at USD 2 per month. You will be charged as per Band 2's pricing because the various resource parameters you have selected for this Plan are higher than those defined for Band 1 but lower than Band 2's.

  • If you set a Plan (for Customers) with 100 MB of Web Space, 10 GB Data Transfer and 500 Email Accounts, then you would be charged at USD 5 per month. You will be charged as per Band 3's pricing because the various resource parameters you have selected for this Plan are higher than those defined for Band 2 but lower than Band 3's.

  • In each of the Bands, you need to submit your Selling Price for your Sub-Resellers. These Pricing Bands will be applicable to them when:

    • they create Plans for their Customers,

    • set pricing for the Pricing Bands for their Sub-Resellers.
