Its a site where people buy a monthly subscription, then get access to an online dashboard/portal thing that a friend and I are developing.
My thoughts on a solution:
Set up an item using Foxycart, as a 2-item package (first month + subscription).
The first month would be set up as a special category, charge the first month of $15 right away, and give them an activation link in their receipt email.
The subscription would start 30 days afterward, and be billed $15 monthly.
The only problem I see is:
If someone doesn't pay, or stops paying, or bounces their card, etc. is it correct I'll have to monitor that and manually deactivate their dashboard account with us?
