How to create and assign a Pay per Month billing rate to a charger?

Pay per Month is the most convenient solution for EV Drivers who need to charge their car regularly using your facilities. Enrol your users on a monthly subscription to allow them to easily access your charging services through the myWallbox app and be billed monthly according to the rate you defined.

To set up your charger(s) for the Pay per Month billing solution, you must create billing rates and assign them to your charger to start billing your users. Follow this article to be guided in this process.

1. Available Rates Overview

The monthly billing solution lets you choose between three charging methods based on variable fees:

  • Charging time fee (charged in Price — USD* / Hour)
  • Consumed energy fee (charged in Price — USD* / kWh)
  • Time reservation fee (charged in Price — USD* / 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 Space.

2. Creating and assigning a Pay per Month rate

To monetize 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:
