Equinix Customer One™ (ECO)

To deliver globally consistent services, we are integrating Bit-isle services into our Equinix Customer One™ (ECO) platform. This is designed to empower our customers by offering flexibility and increased self-service options.

Invoice and Service Period Start Dates

Wenn Sie derzeit Ihre Rechnung einen Monat im Voraus erhalten, freuen wir uns, Ihnen mitzuteilen, dass unsere Abrechnungsmethode bald zu Ihren Gunsten geändert wird. Das Rechnungsdatum wird sich bald mit dem Anfangsdatum des zu bezahlenden Services decken (die Periode, für die Sie zahlen). Zum Beispiel: Ihr Service beginnt am 1. März 2018, und das Rechnungsdatum ist der 1. März 2018.

Beachten Sie bitte folgende Ausnahmen:

  • Rechnungen von N-Series Cloud Services werden 2 Arbeitstage nach dem 10. jedes Monats ausgestellt.
  • For services such as Smart Hands™, Fault Monitoring and Network Usage, the invoice will be issued a month in arrears, i.e. on the first day of the following month. This means you will only be invoiced for what has been consumed in the previous month.

Calculation of Daily Rate

Derzeit basiert die Berechnung Ihres Tarifs auf einer Rate von 30 Tagen im Monat. Wiederkehrende Gebühren werden anteilsmäßig nach tatsächlichen Tagen im Monat berechnet. Im März werden sie zum Beispiel mit 31 Tagen, im April mit 30 Tagen berechnet.

Invoicing Delivery

Written invoices will be sent on the first day of each month by post and if you would like to request a pdf invoice, please contact . Please include your company name and contact email address.

Multiple Orders/Racks or Suites

Wenn Sie mehrere Bestellungen pro Rack oder Suite aufgegeben haben (z. B. zusätzliche Cabinets/Stromupgrades), erhalten Sie derzeit eine Rechnung für jede dieser Bestellungen. In Zukunft wollen wir diesen Prozess optimieren und Ihnen eine Rechnung mit der Hauptbestellung der Colocation-Services ausstellen.

Equinix Invoice Format

Ihre neue Rechnung wird zusätzliche Informationen laut Vertrag beinhalten. Außerdem werden sich Produktnamen ändern.

Wir werden Sie in einem anderen Schreiben über weitere Änderungen von Produktnamen und Beschreibungen im globalen Produktkatalog von Equinix informieren.

First Invoice from Equinix Customer One Platform

Laut Planung rechnen wir damit, dass die ersten Rechnungen von der Equinix Plattform für wiederkehrende Gebühren ab März 2018 verschickt werden. Wir bitten Sie, zur Kenntnis zu nehmen, dass Sie bis zu diesem Zeitpunkt möglicherweise keine Rechnung von uns erhalten.

Product Names and Descriptions

Bit-isle product names and descriptions are being aligned with Equinix’s Global Product Catalog and will appear on quotes, order documents and invoices once the integration is complete. More information regarding these changes can be found on the Product Information page in this Resource Center.

Für bestimmte Services, wie temporäres Personal, werden wir weiterhin das aktuelle Rechnungsformat verwenden, da es zum jetzigen Zeitpunkt noch keine Systemintegration diesbezüglich gibt.

Häufig gestellte Fragen (FAQ)

When will invoices be issued?

For monthly fees, the invoice will be issued on the first day of the month when the service begins. For example, the invoice covering March 1, 2018 to March 31, 2018, the invoice will be issued on March 1, 2018. This alignment means you will no longer be due to pay your invoice before the start of the service period.

How will the format and description of the invoice change?

Invoices from the Equinix invoicing platform are more detailed than your existing invoices and will look different. Your new invoice will show additional information concerning your services and use Equinix product descriptions from our product catalog. Please refer to the Invoice Format explained below.

Is it possible to change the billing cycle?

In principle, invoices will be issued monthly at the beginning of each month. However, these can also be issued in cycles of 3 months, 6 months, or one year, depending on the customers’ request. Customers will need to confirm which invoicing cycle they require and this frequency will apply to all invoices for that company.

Is it possible to add a subtotal to the invoice?

Yes, it is possible to add a subtotal to the invoice based on one of the following sections:

  • IBX
  • Order number or Reference number
  • Service Category
  • Reseller account code
  • Order number (the current 8-digit contract number)

Customers will need to confirm which sections they require for subtotals and this selection will apply to all invoices for that company.

Is it possible to split the invoice?

Our invoicing system also allows you more choice on how your invoice is generated based on your individual preferences. We offer greater flexibility by providing various options for breaking down and summarizing charges on each invoice. Invoices can be split in six different ways. Customers can select up to three of the following options:

  • Equinix sales order number
  • Produktkategorie
  • Purchase order number
  • Customer reference
  • IBX
  • Recurring/Non-recurring charge

Customers will need to confirm which options they would like to have their invoice split by and this selection will apply to all invoices for that company.

When will the change to the new invoice happen?

We expect the first invoices from the Equinix platform to be sent from March 2018 for recurring charges. Please be aware you may not receive an invoice from the Equinix platform until then.

Would it be possible to receive my invoice in pdf format?

Customers can choose to have either a printed invoice or a pdf invoice. If you wish to request a pdf invoice, please contact billing-jp@ap.equinix.com, clearly stating your company name and email address.

Equinix Customer One Invoice Format

As we transition our customers from the Bit-isle invoicing platform to the Equinix Customer One platform, we would like to introduce you to the changes you will see in the invoice format from Equinix.

This format was developed based on feedback from our customers globally to provide a consistent, simple and straightforward invoice format. It contains separate sections detailing new activity, existing activity and de-installations, allowing customers to clearly identify changes over the course of time. The format also shows additional information in relation to your agreements and there will be changes to the product names. Information such as product details, IBX, rack number, contracted power supply capacity, order number or reference number will be included.
