Controlling billing transactions
A transcription request can be associated with a specific billable entity by using the tag
=ENTITY, where ENTITY is the name or number of the billing group with which you want to associate this transcription event:
curl -F email@example.com \
-F token=your-token-here \
-F billing=joeuser \
In this example, the usage costs associated with the transcription of sample1.wav would be associated with the billing group
in your monthly report.
As a general rule, avoid commas when specifying billing entities unless you are trying to collate or count large numbers of unique substrings.
Billing tag strings that contain a comma are split into separate strings (
) around the first comma. The
field can be used for unique substrings, such as phone numbers or user account IDs, for further analysis.
