To add a new discount/surcharge

  1. Go to Billing > Discounts/Surcharges.
  2. Click Add New Discount/Surcharge.
    The New Discount/Surcharge dialog box appears.
  3. Enter a name, description, and choose a target resource.
    It is recommended that the description give as much detail as possible about the discount/surcharge. You can change the target resource after you have created the discount/surcharge.
  4. Click OK.
    The new discount or surcharge is added to and selected in the list.
  5. Specify the following options:



    Unit Type

    Percentage specifies that the aggregated costs for a daily or monthly period will be multiplied against the value in the value text box to arrive at the discount/surcharge.

    Amount creates a single cost in the target resource ID of that value for the daily or monthly period selected.


    Specifies the frequency at which a discount/surcharge is applied.

    If Daily , every run of the ccjob process will pick up the discount/surcharge. If Monthly , only a ccjob process run on the last day of the period will create a discount/surcharge.

    This period also denotes how many days of usage costs should be aggregated for calculating the discount/surcharge.

    Discount Type

    Simple specifies that all usage from the source resources will be aggregated and have a discount/surcharge applied.

    Tiered specifies that there will be two or more different levels for creating the discount/surcharge -- a different discount/surcharge for each aggregated level. This will display a grid that needs to be populated with the levels of usage and the appropriate discount/surcharge.


    Discount creates a negative value in the target resource. Surcharge creates a positive value in the target resource.

    Target Resource

    Specifies the resource that appears on the reporting with the discount/surcharge. This is a target resource for the cost amount that is being applied against the customer account. If the resource does not exist, go to the Resources page ( Billing > Services ) to add it.

    You can change the target resource after you have created the discount/surcharge.

    Source Resources

    Specifies the resources to be used for accumulating the amounts that will have a discount/surcharge applied against them. All specifies every resource. Individual allows you to specify one or more resource from a list.

  6. Click Save.

After a discount or surcharge is saved, it must be assigned to one or more customers that will receive this discount/surcharge.
