Q: How can I obtain rates list from my script written in PHP, Perl, Java etc.?
A: The simplest way for your to get rates is to call Diamondcard site from your PHP scripts with the following parameters:
method: GET URL: http://www.diamondcard.us/exec/voip-rep-acc-type secId=Site Name (your PE site name) Action=EXPORT grpId=2 - type of price list (2 - for IP phone rates, if you need rates for other access points contact us and we'll provide you proper Ids.) currency=USD - currency (CZK, EUR, GBP, etc...)
This request will return price list for required access point (grpId) from your default rate plan. Default rate plan can be configured in your admin center at: PE -> options -> new user defaults -> Rate Plan
With this request you'll get CSV output which then can be represented in any design. It contains the following columns:
first column - Destination name second column - area codes separated with ';' third column - price
Here is an example of complete working shell command:
Contact us for more information about acceptable values for secId, grpId and currency fields.
If you want to load rates from different rate plans for every rate plan you need to do the following steps:
- create new sub account under your top PE account. - turn ON PE for this new account. - assign required rate plan to this new account - the rate plan which rates you want to load. - login under this account and create new dynamic rate plan based on wholesale rate plan with 0% profit. - configure this rate plan as a default rate plan. PE -> options -> new user defaults -> Rate Plan - now you can use this account secId in HTTP request to get rates from your scripts
