Within a product rate plan charge, under Timing and Frequency of Charges, there is a trigger condition that controls when the recurring charge becomes active and starts billing.
Triggering Condition Types
When setting up your rate plan charge, the following triggering conditions are available
- Upon Contract Effective: This charge is active on the effective date of the contract that governs the applicable subscription.
- Upon Service Activation: This charge is active on the date the customer is provided access to the services or products.
- Upon Customer Acceptance: This charge is active on the date the customer accepts the services or products.
- Upon a Specific Date: This charge is active on the specified date and billing can start. This trigger is available only from a subscription rate plan charge, not from the product rate plan charge.
