Continuous Invoice Generation for Suspended Orders

Vikas Nangia shared this idea 11 months ago
Under Consideration

When WHMCS is turned on continues to generate invoices for orders that are in a Suspended state.

We suspend orders when we know the customer is no longer going to pay, or in case there has been a dispute, but dont want to terminate the hosting account yet. An invoice being sent to the client when we've marked an order as Suspended, is a major inconvenience.

An invoice should NOT generate automatically if the service is suspended. This should only happen when the order status = active.

Hi there,

Thanks for taking the time to provide your suggestion.

At present services in Active, Pending and Suspended services are all considered for invoice generation: https://docs.whmcs.com/Billing_Logic#Renewal_Invoices

Setting the service to Cancelled or Terminated would prevent further invoice generation.

@Nangia Your wanting to have continuous invoice generation enabled but only for active services?

@Shaun,

Yes

We're migrating from a system that works that way so it would be very useful for us also.

Hi Vikas Nangia,

We paid WHMCS to add this functionality probably 10 years ago. I asked them to add options below the continuous invoicing option to select what service statuses it would apply too, they never did..

Here's documentation I created showing how to do this.
