Billing Inquiries and Disputes - Communications API products
For Video API see Billing Inquiries and Disputes - Video API.
We make every effort to invoice you correctly, but in the event of any potential issues, we endeavour to resolve these as quickly as possible. This may involve the issuance of a credit note to offset any erroneous charges.
Credit notes are legal documents that enable you to cancel out an existing invoice, either in full or in part.
Why you might submit a Billing Inquiry or Dispute
- Pricing Error
- Service Issues
- Inaccurate volume
