Hot! 37 Signals offers pay-in-advance for their customers

basecamp icon37signals, makers of Basecamp and its sister applications, Highrise, Backpack and Campfire have recognized that customers might want to manage their cash flow better and make their subscription payment in one go.  To satisfy this need, they have now introduced a pay-in-advance scheme for their clients, which allows clients to simplify their billing.

Customers can now pay for any and all of the 37signals application in one lump sum.  Each individual monthly payment is then taken by 37signals against that credit instead their bank account or credit card being charged each month.  When the upfront paid balance drops below a certain point, 37signals will email to let you know so you can top it up.

Setting up a lump sum payment is very simple  – customers can simply click the ‘Account’ link that appears at the top of each screen of the 37signals applications.  From there, a click on the link for the lump sum payments to add the credit.

Once an advance payment is made, customers still receive a formal invoice on a monthly basis.basecamp
