DataCapture policy captures monetization variables

You can configure the DataCapture policy to capture a transaction's monetization information such as revenue, currency, price multiplier, and status. For more information, see Monetization variables.

Prepaid billing

Apigee now supports the prepaid billing of developers, as well as postpaid billing. In prepaid billing, app developers pay in advance even before using your API products. The upfront payment made by the developers is available in the developer's wallet, which can have different currencies. You can track a developer's balance in real time and block API calls if a developer has insufficient funds.

Revenue sharing with developers

The revenue sharing feature enables developers to receive a percentage of the total revenue generated. As an API provider, you can configure Revenue share in your rate plan to share a specific percentage of the revenue with your developer partners.

Volume banded consumption pricing

Rate plan supports the new Banded type of consumption based fees. You can configure variable fees for each monetized transaction based on a band. A band refers to an API consumption range, and you can configure a different fee for each band.

Dynamic consumption pricing

To calculate the cost of a transaction, you can specify a multiplier (perUnitPriceMultiplier) value on top of the pre-configured base price in your DataCapture policy.

Criteria for successful transaction

You can specify if a transaction must be monetized or not by configuring the transactionSuccess monetization variable in your DataCapture policy.
