Reconcile your PureCloud Voice invoice against your usage report


You can reconcile your PureCloud Voice invoice against your usage report. In addition, you’ll use the sort and filter features on the PureCloud Voice / Number Management page to check the phone numbers that appear on the invoice.

The total usage charges on your invoice include the following: 

  • Calling service charges
  • Non-recurring charges (set up fees) for toll-free and DID numbers

When you’re looking at your PureCloud Voice usage report, you will see records that correspond to
