  • Consumed energy fee (charged in Price — EUR* / kWh) – your charger needs to be equipped with a MID meter to use this charging method.
  • Charging time fee (charged in Price — EUR* / Hour)

On top of the abovementioned fees, you can add a fixed service fee that will apply to all your users’ charging sessions. It can be likened to a charger unlocking fee.

*The currency depends on the configuration of your Organization.

To start monetising your charger(s), you must create billing rates and assign them to your charger. Follow the steps below to create and assign a rate to a charger:

Your charger is ready to charge your users for their charging sessions. The last steps you must go through to ensure your users can access your charging points are the following:

  2. Generate and display charging instructions to help your users understand the charging process.

You can fully manage all your rates following this path: Payments (in the left menu) > Rates.

From there, you can view all your rates and their properties (variable fee type, price, …) and check if they are assigned at a glance. You can also create new rates, delete them or modify them directly from this area.
