Frequently asked questions
How the pre-paid subscriptions are managed ?
Managing the pre-paid subscriptions is very easy. Since the payment has already been collected, the customer would not be charged till his pre-paid billing cycle.
Example: if customer pre-paid for 12 months of his monthly subscription, he would not be charged monthly. But an order with zero value will be created just for the record.
What should we do when we want to discontinue pre-pay option for a subscription product ?
You can do that. Please go to the product settings and disable the pre-pay option.
IMPORTANT: You should NOT deactivate or uninstall or delete the plugin.
That would mean the existing pre-paid subscriptions would become a normal recurring subscriptions. So just disable the prepay option in the product settings.
What happens when the pre-payment period of a customer gets over?
Once his pre-payment period expires (after 12 months), the customer would be returned automatically to his normal billing cycle of the subscription. Example: If it is a monthly subscription plan, then he would be returned to monthly billing cycle after the pre-payment period.
These are all done automatically. So you do not have to worry much about it.
