Recurring Contract Billing For WHMCS

Recurring Contract Billing For WHMCS

Developed By ModulesGarden

Compatible with WHMCS v8.10

ModulesGarden Recurring Contract Billing For WHMCS will give you the flexibility to offer your products and services through fixed-term contracts. Empowered to choose how long each contract lasts, you are no loner stuck with the predefined billing cycles, and can customize your setup to suit your specific invoicing needs.

This module makes it easy to control which products require clients to confirm a contract before placing an order. When you initiate an order in the admin area, the customer will be emailed a link to conveniently view and accept the conditions. You also have the option to upload contracts directly from the admin area for specific clients and services. Contracts can be created in multiple languages and can include a discount value as well as penalty amount for any breaches. Additionally, you can choose how they are signed - whether through a checkbox, file upload, or electronic signature.

You will be able to define the renewal type for each contract and manage additional settings, affording customers the ability to end it without facing any financial consequences - either during a trial period or within a specific timeframe before the contract expires. To ensure everyone stays informed, the module enables you to send notifications to your clients regarding their expiring contracts and renewal options. Along with this, it allows you to track essential statistics and logs through clear and accessible tables located right on the dashboard.

Extremely buggy. Support is very slow to respond. They only seem to check their tickets once per day making it take weeks of back and forth. They advised me to update my version which then resulted in all the data being wiped and afterwards told me that I can no longer migrate the data because I upgraded (even though that is what they told me to do!).
The years keep resetting, the files you upload don't save. I suggest you wait until the stable version is actually stable because right now it is not.

Support is fast. No issues as of yet, just general questions which are always answered fast!
The module has a range of useful features, should be part of the main product! Module Garden products complete the WHMCS experience for our business and we use several of their modules.

**Update 10/6/2017 ModulesGarden listened to our concerns and updated this module so it works to our specifications. There are some new updates added that we didn't realize were wanted. Happy customer overall!

This module has been in our system for a few months and it takes care of dedicated server contracts with ease.

Keep in mind this module only works with clients who have an account previously created in your system! The way the setup is currently, it gives the impression to the customer that they should be able to input their information and then be able to accept the contract. This is counter intuitive and could potentially frustrate a potential client. If it wasn't for this I would give this module a full five stars since everything else works as described.
