Basic client billing question...

Recommended Posts

Hey all...

Not really sure word this, but I'll do my best and hope you guys get what I'm asking!

One of the main reasons I'm going with WHMCS is to automate the client billing process.  Up till now, I've been billing people with PayPal, and letting them pay however they want.  Most use their own credit cards.

What I want to do is have a client enter their CC info, and then have WHMCS bill there CC every year, automatically.

Can this be done with the gateway?

Do I need to add a CC gateway to make this happen?  If so, which one?

Thanks for helping out the new guy!

Hi Joe,

Thanks for getting in touch, WHMCS does have an integration with PayPal so your client can setup a subscription with PayPal and pay via their preferred method, please see https://docs.whmcs.com/PayPal_Checkout for information on setting that up.

If you would prefer just to offer Credit Card, you could look at a gateway such as Stripe https://docs.whmcs.com/Stripe to achieve this.

Charging annually would be done via WHMCS and setting the billing cycle to be annual .  Some payment methods, like paypal, have subscriptions where the payment is initiated at the gateway and WHMCS is notified.  I do not recommend using subscriptions because if WHMCS does not get the payment notice and you have auto suspend turned on, accounts will be suspended .  If you want to use paypal still, you would need a paypal module that supports Billing agreements and have your paypal account setup for that.   For pure credit cards, yes you would need a gateway for that.  Stripe would also be my suggestion on a credit card gateway.
