The Subscription Intervals section includes the following options:
Initial Subscription Interval
Define how much time should pass between the initial payment and the first subscription billing event. This can be set in months or days. After the first billing event, the amount of time set for Recurring Subscription Interval is used for future billing events.
|Recurring Subscription Interval||
Define how much time there should be between billing events. This interval can be set in months or days, such as 1 month, 14 days, 4 months, and so on. Typically, 1, 3, or 12 months are used for monthly, quarterly, or annual billing cycles.
You set the Initial Subscription Interval for 12 months. You set the Recurring Subscription Interval for 1 month. This means that after the initial payment, the next billing event is one year later. After that billing event, all future billing events are billed monthly.
