Setting a minimum threshold for billing usage

Setting a minimum threshold for billing usage

We are currently rolling out a new product that is entirely usage based for billing purposes. We would like to avoid sending customers bills under a certain dollar amount.


The ability to set a minimum usage threshold before which an invoice will not be generated would be a useful feature.

"Is a "Minimum Commitment" usage charge model (subscriber agrees to spend a minimum amount per billing period that would serve as a floor to the customer's spending) something you would be interested in?"


@Alexis Yes for sure Smiley Happy

Hi @sub_future and @Alexis 


Thank you. I will have a look.

Today we actually solve this using workflows but as we are onboarding more and more business units into our ecosystem - having this as part of Zuora functionality would save us quite some time as we cannot just copy the workflow from one BU to another (can be quite big differences in each configuration). 


But thank you for following up Smiley Happy

@sub_future thanks for commenting that, the extension was what I was going to go suggest next if applicable to @Karina's use case

@Karina, we also have a use case to support minimum commitment for usage product.  Hhow are you using workflow to handle the minimum commitment?


@Alexis , does the Minimim Commitment Extension work in when we have Invoice Ajustment enabled in our instance?
