The article below will go you through the precess of creating and configuring a service package in BILLmanager.

Make sure that you have set up the billing panel before creating a new package. For more information please refer to the article BILLmanager initial setup.

Go to the "Service" section -> the Service packages module to create a package.

Before you start, add a template in ISPmanager. Templates are predefined parameters that you may use when adding a new user or service.

Creating template

To create a template:

  • log in to the ISPmanager control panel;
  • locate the Other Settings section on the navigation bar;
  • go to the Templates module;
  • click the "Add" icon Image:T-new.png to add a new template.

You should provide the name of the newly created template when creating a service package in BILLmanager.

Adding service package

After you have created a template in ISPmanager, you can proceed with the tariff plan creation:

  • go to BILLmanager;
  • locate the "Services" section on the navigation bar;
  • select the Service packages module.
  • click the "Add" icon Image:T-new.png to create a new package. The wizard will guide you trough the configuration steps. For more information read the article Add new package.

Activating server

Activate the server that will process your newly created package:

  • select the newly created service package;
  • click the "Servers" icon Image:T-servers.png;
  • select the server you want to use;
  • click the "Enable" icon Image:T-on.png to activate the server.

If you want to add new servers or edit existing ones, go to the Server management module, select the server you have just activated, click "Config" Image:T-retry.png or "Edit" Image:T-edit.png.

If services are not processed automatically in your system, add a manual setup server, open the "configuration" tab in the the server edit form and specify

Preset SERVICE_PACKAGE_INTERNAL_NAME

Order periods

Add order periods:

  • click the "Period" icon Image:T-period.png to go to the Order periods module. (If you selected the check box, all order periods will be displayed there).
  • click the "Add" icon Image:T-new.png;
  • enter a desired order period (for example, "2 months");
  • select "Unit of measure", "Period length" and "Period price";
  • select the "Available for order" check box so your clients can choose the newly created order period while placing a new order

If you skip this step, you will be able to create order periods later in the corresponding module

Package details

Selecting the "Create all available add-ons" check box while creating a new package will automatically add all package details (add-ons). You can view them by selecting the package and clicking the "Config" icon Image:T-addon.png.

To add an add-on:

  • click the "Add" icon Image:T-new.png;
  • select parameters for flexible configuration of your service package.

Cloning package

Cloning allows you to create a new service package based on an existing one. You won't have to go through all the steps to create a new service package.

To clone the package:

  • select the package you want to clone;
  • click the "Clone" icon Image:T-copy.png;
  • enter a name and internal name for the package (it should match the template name. See the description above);

Click OK to add a new service package.

Importing package

Importing, like cloning, allows to create a new package based on an existing one. The main difference is that a package will be imported from a remote BILLmanager.

To import a package you need to:

  • click the "Import" icon Image:T-download.png;
  • enter the name of the server from which you want to import the package, item type and the service package;
  • click OK to import the selected service package from the remote billing system.
