Custom billing charges adhere to basic rules of multiplication: when you multiply two negative numbers, you will get a positive value. For example, if your monthly spend is $200 and you configure a fixed discount of $500, your total will be negative. When you multiply that negative total by a Monthly Discount of -2.7%, you will get a positive number (charge) rather than a discount.

For our use case, let's say we want to create a monthly recurring fixed charge of $500 for extra support provided to customers. Follow this procedure to see how to configure a custom billing charge that meets these requirements:

  1. Launch CloudCheckr.
  2. Select your account from the Accounts List page.
  3. From the left navigation pane, choose Cost > AWS Partner Tools > Configure > Custom Billing Charges.
  4. On the Custom Billing Charges page, click + New Custom Charge.
  5. Click Add a fixed charge or credit.
  6. In the Start Date field, select January 2020 from the Date Picker, and leave the End Date field blank.
  7. In the Amount field, type 500
  8. Select the Monthly recurring radio button.
  9. Under Description, type Fixed Charge for Support

    Here is what the screen looks like after configuration:

  10. Click Save Custom Charge.
