Prepaid cards enable a network owner to generate pin codes and provide those pin codes to potential users. The network owner can use this as a way to charge users for access without using the Cisco Meraki payment system.
Note: Prepaid cards cannot be voided. Codes cannot be generated until at least one billing SSID has been enabled. If using a fast prepaid login page, generated codes must be equal in value to one of the configured pricing plans.
Once a client uses the splash page to enter a pin code, the purchased time period will begin. So if a pin code valid for 1 day (24 hours) of service is entered on the splash page at 1pm, it will expire the following day at 1pm. Pin codes are only valid for one device.
Note: If enabling on an SSID with users already connected using a splash page, they will not be prompted to enter a PIN until their authorization expires. If the SSID never had a splash page, clients will be prompted to enter a PIN code as soon as they try to access a web page.
