In Sequence, plans and products help you turn pricing terms from sales contracts into billing data.
Sequence plans are designed for sales-led and self-serve businesses. You can create custom plans for each customer or use standard plans for multiple customers.
Sequence offers various pricing models that can be used for standard subscription or complex usage-based pricing. Once you have configured a plan, you can set up a billing schedule for your customer to start charging them.
In Sequence, plans contain products. Products in Sequence show up as line items on a customer’s invoice. Add existing products from the product catalog or configure new products from scratch. Pricing models and fees are configured per product. All products within a plan must use the same currency.
You can set a minimum commitment for a plan in Sequence by adding a ‘Plan minimum’. This guarantees that for each billing period, Sequence will generate invoices with a pre-tax total of at least the minimum amount defined.
If a customer’s total bill falls below the minimum amount set for their plan, Sequence will add a ‘True-up’ charge to bring it up to the minimum.
For example, if the total is
$845 for a plan with a minimum fee of
$1,000, a line item with a rate of
$155 will be added to the invoice, with a description of “True-up charge”.
Sequence creates plan versions with each change, allowing you to view past pricing and recalculate invoices deterministically if needed.
