Explanation of the Billing Cycle


Weekly Billing: 25 - 28 days:


The reason 25 - 28 days is used within the billing statement settings are because when weekly statements are needed they are run on a weekly basis. When this process begins initially the statements should be run for a specific name range such as last names A - H. Then the next week billing statements will be run for I - N or something similar until all names have been covered. After the initial month is over all the user has to do is run the statements for all names and only the "A-H" last names will receive statements considering that they have not received a statement for 25 - 28 days. This process continues each week.


Bi-monthly Billing: 15 - 16 days:


In this case each account will receive a statement as long as they have not received a statement within 15 or 16 days. This statement generation can be run twice a month.


Monthly: 7 days or less:


Monthly billing means that basically everyone (except for those who have received a statement manually within the last 7 days) will receive a statement when the billing statement process is run.
