How to Prorate Transactions in Synthesize Billing Module

Example of how Synthesize Billing Module works to add Prorated Transactions.

What PSA does Synthesize Billing Module currently support proration of recurring services?

Currently, only the following PSAs support proration of recurring services with Synthesize Billing Module.

  • Kaseya BMS
  • Pulseway PSA
  • Datto Autotask PSA
  • ConntectWise PSA (Prorate Agreement has to be enabled on each agreement for proration to be available in Synthesize Billing Module)

If the connected PSA does support proration, yet the date field is greyed out on the service card, this means there is currently no active integration with Synthesize Billing Module.

Overview

Changes to a subscription, such as upgrading or downgrading, can result in prorated charges. For example, if a customer upgrades resources (quantity) by 1 unit, they're charged the prorated amount in which the upgrade occurred, up until the renewal date. Assuming the change occurred halfway through the billing period (monthly), and the subscription is 10 USD per unit, the customer is billed an additional 5 USD for the newly added license and 10 USD for the remaining term of the agreement (for example, committed to an annual contract that is billed monthly).

Prorating a Service Card

Example Contract Services

Once updated, the prorated transaction is immediately posted into the PSA.

In this example:

  • Prorating transactions on New Found Revenue for a total of 9 units:
    • On March 16, 2022, increased by 8 units.
    • On March 14, 2022, increased by 1 unit.
  • The total unit count has been assigned to a contract across two prorated transactions for a total of 9 units.
  • Autotask has automatically calculated the prorated transaction and added it to the contract's Prorated Transactions.
