We've just added a new feature to the Billing Configuration so that organizations who allow members to switch to a new plan at renewal can restrict them to only plans that have higher dues. All you have to do is check the "Restrict plan changes to higher dues plans" checkbox to turn it on. (And the "Offer Plan Change at Renewal" box of course.)
The comparison works by comparing "annualized" dues. For example, if a member is currently in a plan that charges $100 per year but the org offers a monthly plan that charges $10 per month, the monthly plan will show up ($120/yr). If the org offers a two-year plan at $150 per term, it will not show up ($75/yr).
The comparison also takes into account tiered dues (provided that the member has a valid employee count) and dues overrides.
Please let us know if you have any questions about this.
