Fair for both parties and even gives the customer a slight "edge" given the nature of such a policy.
You have no idea how and what Prorate is.
Why you prorate a payment all it means is the payment is due on a specific date of the month (which you set), so say you set payments for 1st of the month and a client signs up on 20th of month why will end up paying from 20th to 1st and then the whole of the following month in 1 payment, and your MBG period would still apply
