Billing Overview - Root Tenants

This topic describes the basic billing and invoicing information for root tenants, including customer billing.

Megaport ONE billing features let you review your invoiced costs and manage access to billing information.

  • A billing market was set up for your company profile when you registered your account and created a company profile.
  • The root tenant receives a monthly invoice directly from Megaport ONE for all of its child tenant accounts.
  • All child tenant accounts are invoiced by the root tenant.
  • Each child tenant account is identified with a unique account number, called a child tenant account reference.
  • All child tenant account references are rolled up into a consolidated invoice for the root tenant.
  • Each root tenant is responsible for all charges incurred by themselves and all child tenant accounts.

Note

Root tenant users that have been referred by a Distributor cannot access billing markets or invoices. The Distributor enables the billing markets and acts as the billing agent for all referred root tenants. All invoices go directly to the Distributor account.
