Payment options are part of the Membership plans to provide a method of Payment.

Each Membership plan can be given multiple Payment options.
In most cases, giving Members an option to pay by Direct-debit or Paid-in-full is standard. Payment options can be applied to all, or specific Branches if required.

Paid-in-full (Term): The Member pays for their Membership upfront for a Fixed-term.

Paid-in-full Payment options have no Tag, and will always end after the Fixed-term is ended. Paid-in-full Memberships are never ongoing, as there has to be an End date to determine when the Member must renew the Membership.
