How do I Setup Recurring Billing for an Invoice?

Updated on August 20, 2018 09:24pm by Admin

The invoices created with recurring billing will be listed in two places.
  1. Under Draft tab
  2. In the Sent tab, once it is sent to the customer
The invoice gets stored in “Active” status under recurring billing only if the customer provides payment details (i.e. Paid invoices). Recurring billing is automatically available for PayPal, Stripe, and Authorize.Net  and the payment can be collected through PayPal or Authorize.net.

Let's take a quick walk through the following steps.
