General information and explanation of records

Customerfile to Billing (KUB) is used to submit end-user information to the PayEx Billing System. KUB contains the end customer's customer information together with all of the end customer's subscriptions and products to be processed in the PayEx Billing System.

The PayEx Billing System processes and stores all correct customers. Incorrect customers will be returned in a detailed error file.

Updated customers have to be sent in its entirety. The sending party sends a total snapshot of a customer’s data to be processed in the Billing System.
If any of the customer's information, for example a subscription not has send it will be deleted in the Billing System.

Processing KUB files can be done 24/7 and response files will be delivered immediately after processing KUB files.


Implementation of KUB requires a complete file with all customers. Otherwise it is sufficient to only send updated customers.
