The following window shows you the article overview:
Practical articles are presented and explained below.
The Status “Yearly” ensures that his articles are booked once per year thanks to the Automatic transfer of fees.
The “Payment method” with the Filter “J” is only necessary if there are also monthly payers for this example membership (“Full member, individual”). If this is not the case, you do not need to necessarily fill this field.
What is important is to set “Only members” (so that members that are no longer assigned to receive this article are not considered), and that members' characteristics and post status are checked appropriately.
You need monthly articles If you have, for example, members who pay monthly by direct debit.
The Status “Monthly” ensures that the automatic payment is booked to the corresponding persons 12 times per year (every month). This way you can also better control the monthly collection and book an article for the entire year, until 31st of December: Monthly booking.
The “Payment method” with “M” from monthly ensures that only the persons with “monthly payment” in the field Bank will be booked for this article; the membership variant also needs to be set accordingly. More details can be found here: Bank data.
The “Status” has to be set to “Normal” for these articles. Since these article are always booked individually into the persons' accounts you do not have to select “Automatic transfer of fees”.
Individual booking of articles into the accounts: Edit accounts.
Individual booking of articles as rates into the accounts: Allocating rates.
The Status “Info-Fee, yearly” ensures that the box number is also printed on the invoice for the automatic transfer of fees.
In our example, everybody who rented an electric caddy box will have the article booked. The box number may have an additional “M” in the number, from “medium” meaning that the article is more expensive than one which has an “S”.

Consider the following: you offer a form of membership that costs 80 € per month in the first year, 100 € in the second year and 120 € per month in the third year. The assignment of the articles can be done as described below.
In our example, create three articles: Monthly Entry Taster Year 1, in this case it is important that the “Entry Date” is filled with 0-0 in “Extra information” field. This way PC CADDIE recognizes that this contribution is due in the first year of contributions, i.e., for months 0-12.
Enter 1-1 on the Entry date for the second year, i.e., the months 13-24.
Enter 2-2 on the Entry date for the thirsyear, i.e., the months 25-36.
If the status is then automatically changed to “full member”, you can enter the entry date 3-99. As you can see, you can narrow down for several years.
