A short story

Let us assume that six malaria-injection vials are recommended as full course of medication. Also, let us assume that this full course of medication comes in a tamper proof package. Therefore, if someone needs a seventh vial (maybe, they broke a vial), a full package must be shipped.

  • Malaria-injection vials are being sold as a package:
Package size (units)Package price (USD/package)
6600
  • This is a one-time purchase (non-metered product).

Example: recurring purchase

  • Continuing with the above story, let us assume that the customer requires continuous supply of malaria-injection vials.
  • Maybe, they are in a tropical country with high rates of malaria infection.
  • This situation can be handled by turning the one-time purchase in to a recurring purchase (metered product).
  • Since it is recurring, the number of purchases must be tracked. This process of tracking purchases is called metering.
