# Tips

# Product Discount Calculation

WHMCS includes a helpful feature that shows customers which billing period offers the best value. As a reseller, you can use this to easily demonstrate why choosing an annual billing cycle might be more cost-effective compared to a monthly one.

You can find various billing periods such as monthly, quarterly, and semi-annually under "Products/Services" in the product settings at the "Pricing" section.

This WHMCS feature calculates the monthly cost for each billing period and compares it to the monthly price of the product, which is the first billing cycle.

To demonstrate, consider the following example product prices:

Billing cycle and its price Price per month How much % profitability relative to the monthly price
Monthly ($4.69) $4.69 -
Annually ($53.47) $4.46 ($53.47 / 12 months) 5% cheaper relative to the Monthly price
Biennially ($101.30) $4.22 ($101.30 / 24 months) 10% cheaper relative to the Monthly price
Triennially ($143.64) $3.99 ($143.64 / 36 months) 15% cheaper relative to the Monthly price

The most savings (15%) can be gained by choosing the triennially billing cycle.
