How to create prepaid batch in UniBox?

UNIBOX allows the administrator to create new prepaid batch with Prepaid codes. A batch can have 1 or more prepaid codes.

When you select a group for prepaid batch, group constraints like control policy assigned to group, if any, will also get applied to all prepaid users under that batch.

Administrator can create two types of Prepaid codes -

  • Time Based: Each code has time restrictions.
  • Bandwidth Based: Each code has bandwidth restrictions.

For time based codes, the administrator can specify them as fixed time or time usage. For bandwidth the administrator can assign quota to each code and specify number of days within which the code must use the quota once activated.

All codes are activated when they are used for the first time.

In addition, administrator can also assign upload/download rate limits, session limits and client limits for each code.
