How to request advance payments from customers?


Summary

If you're running a business model that requires advance invoicing, the current feature in Chargebee allows you to optimize your billing flow with advance invoices that work for you and your customers.

Note

Advance Invoicing is available only on Scale and Enterprise plans. To know more, visit our plans and pricing page.

Solution

An advance invoice differs from a regular (single term) invoice by allowing you to collect payments for one or more terms in a subscription at one time

Additionally, an advance invoice contains the following information:

  • The dates specifying when each billed term begins and ends, so the duration of the future terms of the subscription paid for are clear.
  • The next billing date, so your customer knows when they get charged next.

In addition to creating a single advance invoice for one or more terms in the future for a subscription, you can also set up an advance invoicing schedule to automate the generation of multiple advance invoices into the future for the subscription.
