Payment Schedules and Recurring Charges
Recurring Charges that have payment schedules transfer according to their selected billing option and payment schedule. For example, a Monthly recurring charge with payment schedule dates at the end of every month that has not been transferred since 2/28/2014 creates two invoices if you transfer it and select an invoice date of 5/1/2014. One invoice is dated 3/31/2014 and the other 4/30/2014 . If you attempt to transfer that charge again and enter a date before the end of May it will not transfer. Instead, you receive a prompt informing you that an invoice will not be created.
Recurring charges without payment schedules can be transferred as often as you like (see below) and always use the Invoice Date that you enter in the Transfer Recurring Charges window.
Duplicate Recurring Charges
You receive a prompt if you attempt to transfer a recurring charge without a payment schedule that already has an associated invoice that matches your selected Invoice Date. The Customer, Invoice #, Invoice Date, Note, and Setup information for all potential duplicates is displayed. Click Transfer Anyway to create the invoices or the Cancel to return to the Recurring Charges page without transferring.
Once the charges have been transferred you are automatically taken to the Manage Unposted Invoices page with the newly transferred charges automatically selected.
