Need help on below Mainframe project case study.

Using COBOL, JCL - Looking for overall logic and implementation


Background
Requirement from the business area in Denmark to start collect a new fee. The pricing of the new fee is based on the number of accounts owned by the customer and the customer segment the owner of the accounts belong to. It is only accounts with the product type X that are priced according to the new model.
There are 3 customer segments and the pricing is accordingly.
• For customers belonging to segment A the price is DKK 20 for all accounts
• For customers belonging to segment B the first 2 accounts are free but the third and above cost DKK 10 each.
• For customers belonging to segment C all accounts are for free
The customer segment for each customer are held in the customer system.
The accounts owned by the customer are held in the account system.
The fee should be collected once per month.
It should be noted that the customer can have accounts with other product types. They should not be included in this. They are priced according to other models.

Problem statement
Could you on a high level describe a logic solution for the business demands? What elements should the solution consist of and how should they interact. Could you also highlight what areas you think requires extra attention, for instance where should we put extra effort on the test?
The solution should be flexible making it relatively easy to
• add more products to the solution (today it is only applicable for product type X)
• add more customer segments to the solution.
• add more countries to the solution (today it is only applicable for Denmark)

Write down the steps you would need to do to do it manually. Go over what you have written and make sure they are in the right order. Use you knowledge from your college course to translate that into pseudo code.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
