Billing Codes are a way to tie an email message to a specific code you enter when sending the message. This is typically used when there are different departments within your organization and you want to bill each department for the amount of email they send.
On the Send page there is a text box where you can enter a billing code.
NOTE: Marketing Automation Enterprise does not provide billing codes because they are internal and unique to your organization.
In addition to the Billing Codes field, Marketing Automation Enterprise provides a field for Billing Initials. Both of these fields can be set as required.
To enable Billing Codes or Billing Initials, have your account’s admin contact Real Magnet’s Support Team.
When enabling Billing Codes for your account, your account's administrative user may determine that only some users should be allowed to use this functionality.
NOTE: If Enterprise is enabled, Billing Codes can be set as an asset.
An administrative user may also make this a required field before sending a message. Real Magnet must enable this feature.
Configuring Predefined Billing Codes
You can configure Billing Codes so that a user selects them from a dropdown, or enter them on an ad-hoc basis from the Tools page.
- Select Message Tools.
- Select Predefined Billing Codes.
- Enter the Billing Code.
- Select Go.
This would also be the same page where you would manage existing billing codes to either edit or delete them.
