6. In order to allow your customers to oversee their current server resource usage and price, you need to modify one of your files.

Locate 'clientareaproductdetails.tpl' file in 'your_whmcs/templates/default' and find the following line of code:

{if $moduleclientarea}<div class="moduleoutput">{$moduleclientarea|replace:'modulebutton':'btn'}</div>{/if}
Add the below code BEFORE the line:
{php}
require_once substr($this->template_dir, 0 , strpos($this->template_dir, '/templates'))."/templates/advanced_billing/controller.php";
{/php}
You can find this code and instructions in 'Integration Code' category. Additionally, you can allow to display pricing on the order forms.
