Add-ons and allowances

Bill for extra features, minutes, units, seats and sessions with ease thanks to add-ons and allowance based billing

Drive extra revenue with recurring add-ons.

Selling add-ons to your existing customers is an easy way to upsell services to your customers, without having to move them to a new plan. It’s also one of the most effective ways of increasing your overall revenue, without having to spend money on acquiring new customers. With Billsby, you can:

  • Create unlimited add-ons
  • Setup bundling rules – requiring customers to select certain add-ons with select specific plans
  • Add new add-ons whenever you like, with no development required

Helping you to increase your revenue and drive growth in your business, whilst giving your customers more flexibility and options.

Feature tags make implementing add-ons easy for your developers, too.

Just like plans, feature tags can be linked to add-ons as well. Feature tags mean your developers only have to worry about the features your customers have, rather than the plan they’re on.

So if your basic plan includes ‘Gym access’ and your premium plan includes ‘Gym access’, ‘Towel service’ and ‘Filtered water’, but basic customers can buy a ‘Filtered water’ add-on, your developers just have to check for the ‘Filtered water’ tag when your customer tries to use the machine – the rest doesn’t matter.

Sell metered units quickly and easily with allowances

Allowances let you sell metered units – like included minutes, yoga sessions or user accounts – either with a cap, or with overage – and either bundle them with plans or offer them as extras. For example, you could say “This plan includes five yoga sessions per month, and extra sessions are $10.00”, and then meter the usage of yoga sessions through the month with our API.

At the end of the billing period, we’ll calculate the actual usage, and charge for any overage in arrears, whilst charging for the next months allowance in advance.

Update allowance usage on the fly

As well as allowing you to update allowances with our API, we allow custom allowance updates on the fly in Billsby – so if you need to credit back a session, you can make an adjustment before the customer even sees their bill.
