Often you need to accommodate pre-payments for memberships longer than a month. In that case, you can create an invoice for a period longer than a month.
Add an Invoice
1. Navigate to Community/Members.
2. Open the member profile page and click Add Invoice.
3. Set the Issue Date (1) and Due Date (2) of the invoice.
4. Set the Period Start (3) to the first month the invoice is targeting.
5. Select the invoice period under Pay For (4). For example, select 3 if the member will prepay for 3 months, or 12 - if the member wants to prepay for a year.
6. Review the invoice line items (5) and select only the ones you need to charge in advance.
7. Click Add or Add & Send (6).
