Understand your invoice
Depending on your contracts with DoiT and your cloud providers, you may see different items on your invoices, for example, credits, discounts, support charges, and adjustments.
Required Permissions: Invoice Viewer
Credits are applied on the undiscounted consumption, which means if there are both credits and discounts on your consumption, you'll see an extra line item of
Adjustment for Discount on your invoice.
In general, DoiT applies the following model when calculating the total amount of your monthly invoice before taxes (Amount W/O Tax).
Total = (
Credits) + Adjustment(
Consumption: Your total usage of the products/services on the invoice.
Discounts: Applicable DoiT discounts or custom pricing.
Credits: Applicable DoiT credits and credits from your cloud providers.
The example below supposes that your cloud consumption cost in January 2022 is US$
100, you have a
10% discount and a credit of US$
15. The total amount on your invoice will be:
Total = (100 − (100 × 10%) − 15) + (15 × 10%) = US$76.5
Be aware that the formula above is mainly for informative purposes. DoiT takes a more granular approach to reflecting discounts and credits in real-world situations, for example, when:
The discount changes during the month.
You're using services that are not eligible for discounts (preemptible instances, spot instances, Marketplace services, etc.).
The credit applies only to specific SKUs which may or may not be eligible for discounts.
View account credits
To track your account credits, you can add a credits widget to your dashboard.
Promotional credits in reports
When viewing your credits in Cloud Analytics reports, be aware that, DoiT promotional credits for Google Cloud customers and AWS customers on DoiT consolidated billing accounts are not included by default. This may cause discrepancy between your monthy invoices and reports.
For example, the monthly invoice below contains two line items related to DoiT promotional credits:
Migration Credit and its
Adjustment for Discount.
To have the same figures in your report, you need to select the checkbox Include promotional credits.
