One of the hardest task when configuring VoIP billing is the selling price assignment. Lucky for everyone, LCR for FusionPBX with FreeSWITCH has a way to suggest selling prices. Please follow these steps:

  1. Set up all your VoIP Carriers with your buying prices. Don't forget to set up your channel number per carrier
  2. Set up your prefix break down. This is a purely personal or business call. Some people prefer to use 4 digit breakdown, like 1613, 1464 and other people prefer 6 digits like 1613800, 1613700. To make this task easier, we provide a breakdown example:
    Cannot find the download. ID=38
  3. Edit your breakdown as you need, price does not matter at this moment
  4. Go to App->LCR menu and import your breakdown as a selling price
  5. Call the script by accessing it directly, for example, http://pbx.okay.com.mx/fusionpbx/app/lcr/lcr_auto_prices.php (the path may change depending on your FusionPBX deployment). You will see information about pricing being updated. If for a reason you see "access denied", edit the group permission and select lcr_delete permit. Log out and Log in from FusionPBX to get the new policies applied.

Logic

Automatic assignment uses a special average. In other words:

Fórmula de asignación de precios

Where:

  • n is the total number of carriers
  • i is the current carrier
  • buyingprice_i (prefix) is the buying price of carrier i for the prefix
  • channels_i is the number of channels you got from that carrier
  • sellingprice(prefix) is the suggested selling price

Limitations

This script will overwrite all prices.
