Consumption-based Subscriptions

Consumption-based Subscriptions are invoiced after its billing cycle ends. All the consumption data is gathered, and the total price is calculated for each meter separately. Then sum of these total prices for each meter is included in the invoice with charge type Usage fee

NOTE! Quantity for Usage fee is always 1, this also means that UnitPrice = TotalPrice.

The contract billing cycle is equal to the subscription billing cycle. 
The subscription started on 10.04.2018, and the invoice is generated on the 10th day of every month. There is no invoice for the subscription on 10.04.2018 since the first billing period is not ended; the first invoice comes on 10.05.2018 and it contains Usage fee for period 10.04.2018 – 10.05.2018.
