Progressive billing is common billing method. It is certainly more difficult than standard billing because of the number of payments needed to close out a purchase. There are significant issues with standard billing as well especially when dealing with credit cards. I won't go into it here but I can tell you there is a whole lot to it when you follow the entire pipline.

You can handle progressive billing the same way you handle invoicing standard bills, except you need to list each bill date and the amount that will be charged on those dates. That is the most basic of ways but it can be a heck of a lot more complicated than that.

The way I've seen most online systems handle this, is that they tell you how mcuh you are going to be charged over what period of time and what dates that the card will be hit. Then the card it hit each month automatically. Sometimes, they don't do it automatically but instead send out emails telling the person to log in to their system and give them permission to charge them.

Here is a link to a progressive billing screen (notice that each bill can be unique in the progressive sequence)
