How to set pricing plans ?

Administrator or employee (with appropriate access rights) is able to modify any of the settings before generating accounts.
However most of settings can be applied with simple selecting of Pricing plan from list of already set pricing plans.
Each price plan has price, time, bandwidth quota, expiration date and other options.

Pricing plans can be configured on HotSpot - Setup - Price - Price Plans page. Antamedia HotSpot creates default price plans on first installation so you can have a better idea of the possibilities.
You can modify them, or create totally new price plans. The number of price plans in database is not limited.

These options are used to define a price plan:

Time Time available for the Internet usage. It's measured in seconds
Unlimited Time                       
Enable this option if you do not wish to limit users by time. It's useful if
you charge users by bandwidth or users pay monthly fees
Price  
Cost of selected price plan. If tax is not specified, this is what customer
pays
