I need this feature to be able to sell online advertising as customers are used to weekly billing with adwords, Facebook...
This would actually be a good feature in a number of ways. Especially if clients were able to opt to have their bills taken out weekly instead of monthly, so that WHMCS could automatically take $xx each week, placing the account in credit, until the bill is issued and then take the remainder of $yy out of the clients credit card when the bill is due. It would be an opt-in feature chosen by clients who would like to spread their payments out on monthly products. Wouldn't be so useful for cheap hosting packages, however for more expensive dedicated servers, colocation etc. it would make life a lot easier for clients being able to select a certain amount to be deducted from their accounts each week/fortnight. You would make this a client selectable amount.
As well as making it an option to set the product price to a weekly amount as well during product creation in the admin area.
Sorry about my bad grammar and missing spacing etc. typing this on no sleep.
I would like to see hourly, daily, and espeically weekly billing as well.
It may be difficul to get hourly billing, as cron task runs daily, but would be great if we can specify both the units and the measure with just a text box and a dropdown:
Select recurrence: X (days|weeks|months|years)
I really do need to have a weekly billing option. My clients only need to have services for a week at a time to do exams testing and studying
We find it quite amazing that WHMCS doesn't have the option to bill by cycles shorter than a month.
Many SaaS companies out there would like to have the ability to bill by the day/week and not by a month+.
We truly hope that WHMCS will decide to deliver this solution since technically, it shouldn't be hard at all.
Thanks for your consideration!
Crons now run every five minutes so hourly billing shouldn't be a problem - as a hosting / design firm it is essential we have a automated process for handling our payment plans $800 over 8 or 12 weeks (using the terminate after x period feature).
Thousands of reasons to have this feature its discouraging that I have to look for a 2nd solution or look at custom implementations when it seems other billing systems started with such a feature.
Automatic terminate after x day will confuse customer, It will show monthly billing and what If customer want to continue?
+1 because of This feature is already supported by Blesta (Daily/Weekly/Monthly/etc)
We also offer products and services where alot of people will only use it one or two weeks.
Would be for us to allow them to use the service at a lower cost knowing they will only use it 1 week.
Can't wait to have is working :)
We have a custom script which hooks in and uses the API to handle weekly invoices, but we're essentially "stealing" the triennial setting in WHMCS to accomplish this which of course throws off reporting, looks silly, and other things. It's long time WHMCS adds a weekly billing option and given what we scripted with little effort, this should not be hard for WHMCS to accomplish properly.
This has been "Under Consideration" for a really long time. Any chance we're gonna see this happen sometime soon? :-/
Thanks for your votes and comments thus far. With just 26 votes over the past 5 years, this is not currently at the top of our list at this time. Please keep voting and generating interest in this idea, and if it increases we can certainly consider picking up this kind of feature.
Also, there are at least 3 other threads with similar ideas. So in reality there are many more people (more than 100) than just 26 who currently liked this feature to adjust billing cycle... See these:
