People have different spending habits. User accounts are modeled according to the most common types of spending patterns. Admins can allow users pay site fees upfront or to pay at regular intervals. Each account type has its own advantages and it's up to the admins to decide which one to use.

Live (Pay as you go)
If enabled, the Live (Pay as you go) feature, requires users to instantly pay site fees.

All accounts will use the default payment option.
Admins select, from the Users management page(Admin Interface -> Users -> Site Users)the payment method for individual accounts.
