How to Update a Recurring Billing


This article covers the new, uplifted finances, which is currently only available to select customers.


You can made a few adjustments to an active recurring billing, such as to change the Payment Method attached. (Click the following links if you need to refund a payment or credit a future invoice for a recurring billing.)

Keep in mind that in the classic billing, you could adjust the next payment date. In the new finances uplift, you can’t adjust the next payment date. This change ensures that you have accurate records of payments and credits for all recurring billings. If you need to change the next payment date in new finances, you will need to inactivate the current recurring billing and create a new recurring billing to start on the new billing date.

If you need to stop a recurring billing, you inactivate it. Note that in classic billing, you could delete recurring billings; in new finances, you can’t delete an invoice or recurring billing to preserve all payment history.

  • Click the Finances icon in the left panel, and then click the Recurring Billings tab. You can sort by the Next Charge or Name column to more easily find the recurring billing that needs changed.
  • Go to the student’s profile by typing their name in the Search field, and click the correct result. In the Finances module, click the Recurring Billing tab.

2. On the Finances page or on the student’s profile, click the link in the Title column to open the recurring billing’s details.┬áThe title of the recurring billing will be the payment reason and the student’s name; for example, Membership for Student Name.
