Enabling Billing Markets
Before you can order services in a region, you need to enable a billing market. We recommend that you enable multiple markets to cover your business needs. Each billing market will receive its own standalone invoice for that billing entity.
To enable a billing market
Click View Company Markets from the Company Profile page.
If the Company Profile page isn’t visible, choose Company > Billing Markets.
Click Enable next to your preferred billing market(s).
Before choosing a currency for your billing market, see Credit Card Payments to view the markets and currencies where credit card payments are currently accepted.
Complete all fields for the chosen billing market.
Billing Currency – The billing currency for this market.
Note that once you have chosen a currency for the billing market, it cannot be changed. See the Accepted Currencies table below for details.
Company Legal Name – The legal registered company name that appears in your profile.
Billing Contact Details – The name, phone, email address, physical address, and country for the billing contact. Use commas to separate multiple email addresses. For the Billing Address, enter the business location where the key decision makers who procure and provision Megaport services are based. The Billing Contact will be emailed an invoice on a monthly basis.
For tax calculation, Megaport uses the country specified in the Billing Address linked to the billing market. When you enable a market in the UK, Australia, or Singapore, you might be required to provide additional information needed to calculate an accurate tax rate. For example:
- United Kingdom – Answer whether you have registered for the value added tax (VAT). Registered users must provide their VAT registration number. If yes, confirm whether you have personnel in the UK who use Megaport services.
- Australia or Singapore – Answer whether the legal entity or branch that uses Megaport services is registered for the goods and services tax (GST). Registered users must provide their GST registration number.
Company Registration No. – The tax or VAT registration number as required per region.
Invoice Purchase Order Number – An optional PO number for tracking. This number is optional and appears on all invoices related to its market.
See the Customer Onboarding topic for finance forms that could be required for your business.
Select the check box to accept the terms of the Global Services Agreement.
After adding a company profile, you can view markets associated with it by choosing Company > Company Profile and clicking View Company Markets.
Accepted currencies vary for each billing market. In most markets, the US dollar (USD) is available as the secondary currency. For example, the Singapore billing market offers the option of billing in both Singapore dollars (SGD) and USD.
Once you have chosen a currency, it cannot be changed.
