You are on the CP-5 plan (which includes 5 student accounts). You create 4 student accounts Aug 15th and another 8 student accounts Aug 20th. Sep 3rd you deactivate 3 of the accounts you created Aug 20th, and on Sep 16th you deactivate 1 account you created Aug 15th and another one you created Aug 20th. There are no further changes until October. [I know that’s a lot of numbers, but you wanted to know how it works.]
When we run our report in September (for Aug) you will have 12 (4 + 8) billable student accounts. Your plan includes 5, so you will be billed for 7. [That wasn’t too hard. I hope you are warmed up, because now it gets tricky:]
When we run our report in October (for Sep), you will have 8 billable student accounts. Your plan includes 5, so we will bill you for 3.
Here is how we came up with 8 for September:
- Of the 4 accounts you started Aug 15, you deactivated 1 on Sep 16 (i.e. AFTER the 15th), which means you started another billable month for it. All 4 accounts started Aug 15 are billable for September.
- Of the 8 accounts you started Aug 20, you deactivated 3 on Sep 3, which is DURING the 1st billing month for those accounts, and 1 on Sep 16, which is also still DURING the first billing month for that account. That leaves you with a total of 4 billable accounts from the batch you had created Aug 20.
- 4 + 4 = 8
