We need a Billing Plugin - recommendation?

We need to bill our customers for the bandwidth they use and for the storage space their site uses. It would be nice to see this info in the Dashboard and be able to export to a csv, for example. Is there a plugin that can give us that information? Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Kevin

    Hello Kevin,

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    The Pro Sites plugin can control the storage space on Multisite, though it's not on a "server level". It let's you set storage limits that will be respected by WordPress and would block file uploads to sub-sites once the quota/limit is reached. It does not however "actively measure" storage to let you charge "per storage used" and it's not able to measure bandwidth.

    I'm not aware of any plugin that would let you achieve this, unfortunately. I found one that may be capable of limiting traffic and download bandwidth for media files but I haven't tested it and it seems it hasn't been updated for over two years. You can check it here:

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/traffic-limiter/

    The bandwidth measuring is usually performed on a server level so I think you'd need a tool that works on a server and provides and interface/API that could be used to create some custom plugin for WordPress. This however may require a custom developed solution so you may want to post a question on this on our "Jobs & Pros" job board (please note: no WPMU DEV staff involved!) here:

    I think you may also ask on our "Members" forum (here) as it's possible that other members of our community know about a solution that would suit your needs.

    Best regards,
    Adam
