Work 365 can manage the billing and invoicing for non-recurring products and sales. These non-recurring entities are designed for one-off sales, and term-based billing (ie. Azure Reserved Instances). For details on creating a non-recurring billing contract, see Non-Recurring Billing Contracts.
Note: Non-recurring items can be added to both recurring and non-recurring billing contract types. Non-recurring items added to non-recurring billing contracts will be invoiced the day after the item is created. Non-recurring items added to recurring billing contract will be invoiced during the next invoicing cycle of the billing contract, or through a change log invoice if the billing contract frequency is annual or quarterly.
How to create non-recurring items:
Search for the non-recurring item in the product catalog in the from field. For instructions on creating a Non-recurring product in the product catalog, see Non-Recurring Products.
