  1. Select the Billing Responsibility for each master plan instance (MPI) for which the current account will be responsible:
  • Standard Self Pay: Usage accrued by the child account will be recorded under the child account. All service types (activation, recurring, usage-based, order-based, cancellation, and minimum fee) will be billed according to the child account's plan. Invoices will be paid by the child account.
  • Parent Pay: Usage accrued by the child account will be recorded under the child account. All service types (activation, recurring, usage-based, order-based, cancellation, and minimum fee) will be billed according to the child account's plan. Invoices will be paid by the parent account.
  • Parent Usage & Pay: Usage accrued by the child account will be recorded under the parent account. All service types (activation, recurring, usage-based, order-based, cancellation, and minimum fee) will be billed according to the parent account's plan. Invoices will be paid by the parent account.
  1. From the list of displayed self pay plans, select the MPI that will have payment responsibility for the corresponding child account.

    You can assign payment responsibility to an MPI from any account in a parent pay child account's ancestry. In the example shown below, for MPI 25025272, we can select a responsible MPI from the parent account (20930189) or the "grandparent" account (20930188). For more information, please see the important notes about parent‐child accounts.
