How can I have a Parent Account pick up the Usage Overage charges from many Child Accounts?

Question or Problem Statement:

We want to setup a parent account with multiple child accounts and have usage charges roll up to one invoice owner.

 

- Parent subscription has 100 included units, and $1 overage price
- Child 1 subscription has 50 included units, $0 overage price, and usage record of 30
- Child 2 subscription has 50 included units, $0 overage price, and usage record of 90
- Expectation is that Parent will get charged 20 x $1 = $20 because in total, the Child accounts went over by 20 even though Child 1 was under their 50 allotment.
