Annual billing cycle for Client Billing

I would like to have a way implemented to, when setting up my client billing information, give them the ability to pay for the entire year upfront instead of just choosing a package based on monthly only. :)

 

Cheers!

    It's live! Now you can charge clients directly for annual site plan subscriptions — and tack on extra to cover retainer fees, ongoing work, and more. Read more in our update.

    Hi, this is worrying for me, is it then possible for me, the designer, to bill my clients then I pay for the Webflow hosting, myself from my bank account? Annually? Monthly? What is possible and not possible, this is a worry, please inform me.

    Thank you.

    Im considering to shift my web design business onto webflow, Im doing some research first and I read this!! Can not offer yearly pricing plans to clients!! And it has been on the wish list for over a year!! Hmmmm not sure if this is such a good idea after all. That is damn poor form, the designers and the ones driving webflow are the ones suffering here.

    It's silly this isn't active, an absolute no-brainer. Probably requires low effort to implement too

    I thought I was dumb and couldn't find the option but I guess it's not even a feature yet...

    Please ad annual billing option for clients.

    We need this - I was very surprised to find out yearly billing for clients wasn't an option. Why??

    Yes please implement this.

    Yes, please. Now I have to pay for the hosting myself and send out an invoice every year by hand. This will get frustrating when I get more clients. Just automate it so I don't have to :)

    This would be a very helpful feature, especially as Sterling against US Dollar changes frequently.

    This has also been advertised as a feature coming soon, do you have any update on this?

    Thanks!

    The difference between monthly vs annual $ for the same service is enough of a $ difference.

    CMS Hosting: $16/ month (if paid annually) vs. $20/monthly (default for Client Billing).

    @webflow PLEASE implement this ASAP. 

    For everyone else, there's a short term solution here in the meantime which is pretty simple. Just charge the client upfront via stripe / PayPal / cash / / cheque Bitcoin / shiny pebbles.. However you usually get paid, then pay for the annual hosting yourself (not client billing). It's pretty simple.

    But I do agree, this needs to be stock inside webflow client billing. This is not congruent to what is advertised on the hosting landing page that most clients end up looking into and seeing that the price is different. Fix this ASAP

    Just want to reiterate other comments. Many of my clients would highly prefer annual billing and a couple have requested to export the site designs to another platform for hosting if annual isn't an option.

    Agreed. Seems like a simple option

    I need to be able to charge my client for hosting on a yearly basis and I need the charge to be consistent to what's advertised as CMS hosting on the plans page at $16/mo, not $20 + an additional platform fee since I don't do ongoing maintenance.

    Thanks!

    OMG!  I just signed up my first ever client on Webflow and was looking into the billing to realise that he can't have the yearly discount.  Nooooooo!  I have 2 months to get this sorted and have to start his billing.  What are the chances of getting this fixed by then?

    Just had a client request this. Sterling is taking a hammering at the moment.
