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, a Subscription can bill and renew according to one schedule, while granting entitlements only during defined Seasons (which may differ from the billing schedule). For example, a Subscription might bill twice (in September and October) but grant Entitlements for the entire football season (September to December).
Seasonal Billing Plans allow you to separate the timing of a Subscription payment schedule from the Entitlements the Subscription activates.
Seasonal Billing Plans also allow you to create Subscriptions for Entitlements that are active during a defined time-frame, and inactive at other times, while the Subscription bills and renews according to a different schedule.
To enable Seasonal Billing Plans, you first create Season Sets that can then be applied to Billing Periods. Seasons are simply a Description, Start and End Date. Season Sets are a collection of sequential Seasons.
