Summary

Change a configured renewal plan that is set to pay the full plan cost up front to one in which the client will pay twelve equal monthly payments.


When

  • The pet owner wants the plan renewed but would like the cost divided into 12 monthly payments instead of paying the total cost up front.


Permissions

  • Administrator
  • Manager


Terminology

  • Paid-in-Full (PIF): Payment structure in which the client pays 1 payment for the full cost of the plan on its start date.
  • Monthly: Payment structure in which the cost of the plan is divided into 12 monthly payments.
  • Configured Renewal: The plan generated to start at the end of the current plan term or when an administrator starts it early.


Things to Know

  • Only a configured renewal plan, without a payment already processed, can be changed from a PIF payment structure to one in which the client will pay 12 monthly installments.
  • Once the configured plan has been started, the payment structure cannot be changed.
  • If a paid-in-full (PIF) payment is declined and the pet owner would like to change to monthly payments, the plan will need to be cancelled and the pet enrolled in a new plan. This will result in an IDEXX new plan fee being charged.
