The Recurring Payments function is an optional feature found within both the Tendenci Memberships module and the Forms module.

You can also set up a Recurring Payment outside of these modules, for regular billing of your sponsors or clients. 

Setting up a recurring payment account is easy. It simply takes the following 3 steps:

  1. Navigate to the Recurring Payments module.
  2. Establish a recurring payment plan for a user.
  3. Add or edit the billing info.


Step 1: Navigate to the recurring payment module

Make sure you are logged in as a Superuser. Go to (Apps > Admin > Admin Backend > Recurring Payments)

You can also set up a trial period if applicable!
