Policing over wan cloud

Level 1
Level 1

We have a WAN cloud, many of the connection subscribed as 10m, with 256k burst buffer. the traffic exceeds it. Verizon recommanded us to do shaping. but their words are so general. it said, "we recommed you configure 85-90% of the 10M, and leave the buffer bigger"

====L3 interafce(main site, with subinterfaces for remote sites' connection)-------(Verizon cloud)----L3interface (remote site, with sub-interfaces configured for local vlans, for main site connection)

My question for you are,

1. on which interface should i apply the policy? subinterfaces? or the physical interfaces?

2. what is the command should look like?
