CloudStack doesn't deal with the commercial aspects of running an IaaS
environment, but it does play into the solution.

CloudStack's approach is to focus on orchestration of user requests for
infrastructure, and metering of the infrastructure usage (see the usage
service). The usage data normally needs to be processed to bill customers 
in arrears for their usage.  Typically, a commercial offering will have 
some higher-level portal that handles some aspects of the transaction, 
as well as a billing system to deal with the invoicing / payment 
calculations.
