Metered billing best practices

  • Plan your pricing strategy ahead of time so you don't have to frequently change your price.
  • Think through your use case and justification of why you need to change the price.
  • Send a request to Clover App Market ([email protected]) with a business justification of why you want to change the metered price.
  • Work with Clover App Market to review the request and update the prices.

For adding additional countries to your app:

  • Create a single row for capturing metered prices of a single tier.
  • Use the ADD NEW COUNTRY link inside the tier to add additional tiers for different countries.
  • In each country's row, add the price you'll charge in the currency of that country.
  • Track the metered events only once for each pricing tier.
