Before you send your customer their recurring service plan, you must first create the plan. You can use any of the Housecall Pro templates we've provided if you like.


Step-by-step instructions:

Step 1: Click on the CUSTOMERS icon in your navigation bar and then click on the customer's nameĀ 

Step 2: Click on + SERVICE PLAN in the top right hand corner of the screen

Step 3: If there are multiple addresses, select the correct address from the list. Otherwise move on to step 4.

Step 4:

  1. Select the plan name and then the plan start date. Based on the plan you choose, the end date will automatically adjust.

  2. Designate the month/year each included visit should take place. If the visit has already been completed, check the appropriate box and then select the invoice number.

  3. Choose whether you will send the plan to the customer to accept or if you are accepting the plan on behalf of your customer. Will you need to charge tax for this plan? Check the box if applicable.

  4. Press NEXT in the top right hand corner of the screen.


If the start date is earlier than the day you are sending your customer the plan, the system will assume you've already taken payment. This means your customer will not be prompted to set up their card on file

Step 5: If the plan you selected has add-ons, be sure to ADD any add-ons for this particular customer. Then press NEXT in the top right hand corner of the screen.

Option A: Send plan to customer to approve
