Cancel at end of term

You may wish to check the "Cancel at end of term" box. This will prevent the SSL certificate from auto-renewing, requiring the client to place a new order if they wish to renew. Otherwise, the SSL certificate will renew automatically. When importing Packages through the module, this option will not be checked.
