Cisco Meraki Billing allows you to charge users for wireless network access using access codes called prepaid cards. This article outlines how to configure a billing SSID, as well as different configuration and billing options.
Beginning August 1st 2016, all networks configured using Meraki's PayPal Billing splash page will no longer be able to accept credit card payments. A custom splash page will allow you to continue processing credit card transactions. We have negotiated transition offers with our partners to offer better solutions with lower transaction costs than the Meraki solution (20% transaction fees). Customers using the Meraki PayPal feature are encouraged to switch to one of our partner's splash page products.
The first step is to decide on a pricing plan. You can offer your users one or more tiers of service. For each tier, you can select a time period, bandwidth limit, price, and currency. You can also create a free, time-limited tier to let people try out your service. Pricing plans and setup are located under Configure > Access control > Billing plans.
Note: The maximum amount that can be charged for a single billing SSID transaction is $300. Once an account accumulates $20 USD (or its equivalent in another currency) after the 20% transaction fee, you will receive a payment on the 15th day of the following month.
