Creating Packages

Status"Active" is the default, "Inactive", and "Restricted" are also available.

DescriptionEnter a Description for this Package. HTML is allowed, and descriptions appear on order forms.
Configurable OptionsA Configurable Option Group may be selected if previously created.
ModuleSelect "Virtualmin" for the module.

Module Options

The Module Options section consists of the following options, which are specific to Virtualmin

:

Field NameDescription

ServerIf "All" is selected above, select the Virtualmin server to use here.
Virtualmin PlanSelect the plan from Virtualmin. Plans should be added through Virtualmin first, and define disk space and other restrictions.
Virtualmin TemplateOptionally select a Virtualmin Template.

Pricing

Field NameDescription
TermEnter the term for the desired pricing option. For example, if you wish to create a 3 month pricing option, enter 3 here.
PeriodSelect the period for this pricing option. "Day", "Week", "Month", "Year", and "One time" are options. The client will be invoiced every "term period", for example every 3 months if 3 is entered for term, and Month is selected for period.

PriceEnter the price for this pricing option.
Setup FeeIf there is a setup fee, enter it here.
Cancellation FeeIf there is a fee to cancel early, enter it here.

Cancel at end of term

If the service created as a result of this Package should be automatically cancelled at the end of the term and not renew, select this option.

Careful

Most of the time services should renew. Be careful when checking this option, it means that the service will not renew but be cancelled at the end of the original term.

Enable Pro rataIf you want new services to be prorated to a specific day of the month, check this option. Otherwise services will renew on the same day ordered each month, year, etc.

Click the "Add Additional Price" to add more pricing options. It's common for people to create 1 Month, 3 Month, 6 Month, and 1 Year price options. There are many possible combinations.

The "Tags" section describes tags that may be used in the welcome email. The welcome email content is inserted into the "Service Creation" email template under [Settings] > [Company] > [Emails] > Service Creation. Only details unique to this service should be entered into the welcome email section for the package.

Group Membership

If this is the first Package you are creating with this module, select the "Create a New Group" option, and enter a Group name. If you are adding a subsequent Package and wish for it to be part of the same group, select "Select from Available Groups", and move the group from the right to the left of the multi-select box.

When finished, click "Create Package" to create this package.

Final Steps

The only thing left to do is to add this Package Group to an order form so clients may place orders for your Virtualmin servers. See Creating an Order Form for more details.
