You configure seasonal billing and entitlement schedules in this pane of the billing plan.
Seasonal Billing allows you to create subscriptions in which Entitlements are active during a defined time-frame, and inactive at other times. With a Season Set, an AutoBill can bill and renew according to one schedule, while granting entitlements only during defined Seasons (which can differ from the billing schedule). For example, an AutoBill might bill twice, in September and October, but grant Entitlements for the entirety of football season, September to December.
Seasonal Billing Plans allow you to separate the timing of an AutoBill’s payment schedule from the Entitlements the AutoBill activates.
Seasonal Billing Plans allow you to create subscriptions for which Entitlements are active during a defined time-frame, and inactive at other times, while the AutoBill bills and renews according to a different schedule.
To enable Seasonal Billing Plans, you must first create Season Sets, which can then apply to the Billing Periods. Seasons are simply a description of a seasonal activity, with a start and end date. You can have Season Sets repeat annually.
