Campaign payment periods

Target Audience: Users, Stakeholders

Introduction

This section describes how campaign payment periods work and how you set them up.

What is a payment period?

In short, a payment period describes the price in a specified time period. Campaigns implement two types of payment periods, monthly and one off payments. You can not have payment periods of different types for the same campaign.

Monthly payment period

Monthly payment periods charge the customer on a monthly basis.

For example, if the payment period has a length of 5 it will charge the customer 5 times the given amount for that payment period.

Example

Given these parameters for a monthly payment period

  • Length: 3
  • Type: Month
  • Price $10

The customer will be charged $10 every month for 3 months.
Access will be granted for 3 months.

Integration with Kayak

When using the subscription system Kayak together with campaigns of type monthly payment in Payway it is important to set up the campaign in Kayak with a one month period that has the same price as the monthly period in Payway. After one month has passed the period in Kayak should be expired, allowing Payway to renew it when the subsequent payment is performed.

One off payment

One off payments charge the customer once.

For example, if the payment period has a length of 5 it will charge the customer 1 time the given amount for that payment period.

Example

Given these parameters for a one off payment payment period

  • Length: 3
  • Type: Month
  • Price $10

The customer will be charged $10 once.
Access will be granted for 3 months.

How to set up a campaign payment period?

After creating the base of your campaign you can set up the payment periods. This option can be found in conjunction with the campaign overview and the campaign editorial page.
