Billing Cycles

The “Set Number of Billing Cycles” option allows the user to define the number of billing cycles that must lapse before the DID subscription automatically expires. On the expiration date of a phone number the remaining billing cycles for the DID will be decremented. The remaining amount of billing cycles is displayed in the “Billing cycles left” section. The DID service will be automatically renewed until the remaining billing cycle number is 0, afterwards the status of the DID will be changed to “Delayed Service Removal”.

Note

The highest value of the billing cycle count is 999. It is recommended to set the value to “unlimited” if a higher number of billing cycles is needed.

To simultaneously set the Billing Cycle for multiple DIDs, navigate to the DID Numbers section, select the required DIDs and click on “Batch Actions”. In the dropdown menu, select “Set number of Billing Cycles” (Fig. 1).
