Accounts in BillingPlatform are the billable entities your usage and subscriptions will be routed to for invoicing. Accounts contain information such as account name, contact information, billing preferences, payment information, and locale/currency information. Accounts lie at the top of the BillingPlatform hierarchy which means that they can contain entities under them such as Contracts, etc. The account is the actual entity where the bills will be sent after invoices are approved. For more information on the role of accounts, how to create them, and their overall place in the BillingPlatform application, please see the related pages and tutorials.
