Commitments allow you to offer services with discounts for set periods of time and so to retain customers for long periods (usually from one to several years). For example, the standard monthly price for Internet service is $20. Customers can sign up for a 24-month commitment and pay only $15 monthly in return.

To create a new commitment, fill in the commitment details and click Save. To create more commitments, click Save & Add another.
