I don’t understand the matelso bill, what exactly do the items refer to?

Overview #

There are many abbreviations in our invoice items that you may not be able to assign directly. Here we have a brief overview of common abbreviations in the items. For detailed explanations, simply follow the further article.

INST = One-off costs

SUB = Monthly costs

MRS-PN_POOL = Call tracking number/pool

MRS-TN = Call tracking number/pool

ADWWEBTR = script-based playout in a call tracking number/pool

REPORTING = configured push configuration/integration

MAIN-CONTRACT = account-based costs

STARTER = Identification of Starter tariff

ADVANCED = Advanced tariff

HU = Heavy User Tariff

CT-IB = Connection charges for incoming calls

CT-OB = Connection charges outgoing calls/forwardings

CONVTR = Additional module Conversion Tracking

API = Additional module API

 

The 3 cost categories #

We divide our billing costs into 3 categories:

1. variable costs (connection charges).

Some costs depend on the use of the telephone numbers or on the call volume. These are the connection charges that arise per call and transfer. The amount here stands for the started minutes. The positions usually start with “CT”.

2. one-off costs (set-up fees)

One-off charges are incurred per booked function, but also for special orders or similar. All one-off costs start with “INST”.

3. monthly costs (basic fees)

As a rule, each function booked with us has a monthly basic charge. The monthly basic charges have the period for which they are incurred in brackets after the item description. This period influences the amount. All monthly charges start with “SUB”.

 

Examples of invoice items #

There is a lot of information in an invoice item, which can also vary depending on the contract tariff or setup. Please understand that we cannot list all existing positions. We use a few examples from the Starter tariff here.

CT-IB

= Inbound charge (incoming call minute)

Each invoice line will be dependent on your tariff.
