What is Recurring Billing?

Membership Dues and Subscription Fees are usually the main products and services setup on Recurring Billing.  This means that a customer is setup to be automatically billed at specific intervals such as monthly, quarterly, 6 months or annually.  Recurring billing can also be used to offer installment billing plans for products.  For example, you have a product at $59.85, but you want to offer the product with three payments of $19.95 over a specified amount of time.


The Recurring Billing Manager allows you to edit, update and change all aspects of your customer recurring billing transaction with your company.  If you have coded to the recurring API then your customer’s recurring information is stored in the recurring billing manager.
