When enabling public charging through the session activation method you can set a Pricing Policy for a charging station(s). A pricing policy must be set on a charging station and that determines the price for both Scan & Charge and Swipe & Charge.
Next to that, there is also a card "Pricing Policies" available where you'll see all created policies and the charging station(s) linked to it. From here you can also create a new Pricing Policy.
When creating a new pricing policy, you'll be guided through 4 steps.
- 1: The first step is the Price Structure. Here you can set your price per kWh. If you want you can also set a starting price and price per hour. For the price per hour, there is also a possibility to add a second hourly rate that starts after a certain period.
- 2: In the next step 'Groups' you can select a group consisting of select individuals for unique pricing structures. When selecting a Group a new pop-up will appear where you can choose a group or create a new one. New groups can also be created through the card 'Groups' (more info here )
Select a group and you'll be able to apply a discount or a fixed tariff for these individuals. When setting a discount a preview of the discounted price is also being shown.
- 3: After setting up all prices, you can Assign it also directly to the charging station(s) through this step.
- 4: In the last step 'General' you can name the new pricing policy. The newly created policy will also be available on the drop-down menu when activating public charging on a charging station.
You're all set, now everyone in this group will be able to charge at a discounted rate/different price.
