Can I view my current invoice amount?
Yes you can. Through our billing portal you can see your current call usage for the month by clicking on the ‘Services’ tab and ‘View Usage’. You can also see what you’ve billed for each call.
This billing and service usage information is updated on a daily basis, so keep in mind the calls you’ve made today may not appear in the portal until tomorrow.
What is your billing process?
Our billing process is performed in steps, as outlined below. Note that the delivery date of your invoice can vary from time to time due to the process we go through to verify and check our invoices before we send them to you. We also must wait for the call records to be finialised by upstream providers and sent to us for processing.
Your invoice will contain your access fees (billed for the month in advance) and your usage fees (billed in arrears) plus any additional charges such as late payment fees, setup fees for additional services etc.

You must maintain an active Credit Card with funds to cover your monthly fees at all times to enable easyinbound to continue to provide you with a service.
What is different about a 1300 versus a 1800 number?
A 1300 number provides callers from a standard fixed line telephone service with a fixed or untimed rate from anywhere in Australia, while a 1800 number provides callers from a standard fixed line telephone service with free calls from anywhere in Australia.
Calls to both types of numbers generally attract a timed rate from Mobile and other non-fixed services that is set by the callers carrier (It’s best that the caller checks with the carrier to confirm all rates as they can vary).
What charges will be on my first invoice?
Your first invoice will contain the following charges;
- Your Setup Fees which are once-off only
- Your Pro-rata service fee amounts (see explanation below)
If you connect with easyinbound after the start of the month, you will be billed a pro-rata remainder of the current month plus your once-off setup fees.
