Invoice Criterion

Billing Automation

Your business may require to group and separate invoice line items along a specific criterion – only invoice line items with the same criterion are to be included in one invoice, others are invoiced separately. To support this, JustOn makes use of invoice criteria, which are a means for controlling the distribution of invoice line items to multiple invoices.

Example: Recurring items

The following subscription configuration

Item Billing Type Quantity Price Invoice Criterion
Fee 1 Recurring 2 5,00 A
Fee 2 Recurring 3 7,00 B

produces two invoices with the following line items:

(1) invoice for criterion A

Invoice Line Item Quantity Price
Fee 1 2 5,00

(2) invoice for criterion B

Invoice Line Item Quantity Price
Fee 2 3 7,00
Example: Transactional items

The following subscription configuration

Item Order No. Billing Type Quantity Price
Fee 3 PROD3 Transactional 10,00

with these custom object records to be matched with the transactional item

Invoice Criterion Order No. Quantity
A PROD3 3
A PROD3 5
B PROD3 7

produces two invoices with the following invoice line items:

(1) invoice for criterion A

Invoice Line Item Quantity Price
Fee 3 8 10,00

(2) invoice for criterion B

Invoice Line Item Quantity Price
Fee 3 7 10,00
Example: Generic invoice run

In one generic invoice run, the following custom object records

Account Title Invoice Criterion
My Company Product 1 A
My Company Product 2 A
My Company Product 3 B

produce two invoices with one service period for "My Company" with the following invoice line items:

(1) invoice for criterion A

Invoice Line Item
Product 1
Product 2

(2) invoice for criterion B

Invoice Line Item
Product 3

Note

Be aware that the invoice criterion does not merge subscriptions or combine items of multiple subscriptions on one invoice.
