Indeed it can. Simply create a Recurring Profile in your account and let FreshBooks remember to send out invoices on your behalf.

The PCI Standard is mandated by credit card companies and administered by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council. Both of our payments processors (WePay/Chase and Stripe) employ strict PCI compliance.
