Summary

Change a configured renewal set to pay 12 monthly payments to one in which the client will pay the full cost of the plan with a single payment.

When

  • A pet owner wants the plan renewed but would like to pay the cost of the entire plan upfront instead of making monthly payments.

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 paying 12 monthly installments to one lump sum when the plan first renews.
  • Once the configured plan has been started, the payment structure cannot be changed.
  • If a monthly payment is declined and the pet owner would like to change to one lump sum payment, 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.
