Some Examples of Re-billing
LC Premium Triggers and Actions are disabled below, meaning the Agency will pay for executions consumed after the complimentary 100 executions are used up.
The re-billing is turned on in this case, but there is no markup. So while the agency can pass on the costs to their clients, they are not making any profit (margins).
The re-billing is turned on in this case, and there is a 5x markup. This means the agency has a 500% margin and earns $4 for every $1 their clients spend.
How does re-billing work?
- Agencies pay HighLevel and get invoices with high-level branding
- Sub-accounts (your clients) pay you (the agency) and get invoices with your branding. The money is deposited in your Stripe account connected to your agency level. How do I connect my agency's Stripe account to collect payments from my clients?
This is very similar to other products that use re-billing or reselling models in the platform. Just like LC Phone or LC Email re-billing, re-billing of the Premium Workflow actions also utilizes "credits" from the agency wallet & the location wallet, respectively.
