There are three settings in the Emerald admin that control this, under
the Client section, Client tab:
Default Expire: This is the number of days before the account willl
initially expire. You can also read this as "when
do I start billing the customer". You can set this
to 0 to immediately start billing the customer, or to
say 7 to give them a seven day grace period.
Default Extend: This is equivalent to the Temp Expiration on an MBR.
If you set default expire to 0, you'll definately want
to set this to a higher number, or they will not be
able to get onto their account after thier signup date.
Some people set both of these to five, giving five days
lead way, and 5 additional days into thier billing to
pay their bill.
Default Limit: This is equivalent to the Perm Extension on an MBR.
Default expire sets the initial values for ExpireDate and BilledThru
date (today + the value).
Both Default Extend/Limit set the intial Temp/Perm extension fields on
a newly created MBR.
