    We've cleaned up the billing reporting in the new CP.

    Now it will show you the outstanding balance which will take into account your current usage and any credits that you have this way you can see if you still have credits left or if you have a balance which will be charged to your card at the end of the month.

    We've removed the balance that was updated at the end of each invoice/payment sent to make things simpler and clearer.

    And we're also going to more prominently display the "View My Current Charges" which provides a link to the latest invoice as well as provide just a visual display of the current charges for this month where no credits are taken into account.

    Billing API would be great. I'd suggest at least the following:
    price per hour on droplet resource
    cost so far on droplet resource
    spin-up time stamp on droplet
    balance on account
    balance on each date sub resources of account
    payment resources, not necessarily under account in-case you allow sub-accounts

    + any and all budget triggers

    Why not look at a stronger SOA approach. The manager should communicate through the API, therefore all actions and resources can be exposed.

    A billing API would be interesting would love to hear more feedback on this:

    Would you like to see:

    Current balance? (Total credits - amount used so far this month)
    Amount used this month (Total used this month)
    Outstanding Balance? (This is the balance, it's calculated at the end of each month and doesn't take into account current charges)

    Please add this to the API, too.

    Hi Mads,

    We're going to be updating our billing display to make it easier to understand.
