Billing Accounts

Several Equinix organizations bill their end-users for products and services, and then must generate billing for their end-customers. Consequently, the Equinix Finance Admin role creates a billing account in PDS, and then assigns it to their customer organization(s) ( CustOrg).

Billing accounts are created in the Equinix Permission Data Store ( PDS). After migrating to IAM, billing accounts are then managed resources within the Equinix IAM customer Root Organization. The Finance Admin can create billing account associations with any organization or project owned by the Root Organization. Several organizations and projects with the same parent organization can share the same billing account, or have completely separate billing accounts, based on the end-customer's business needs.
