Hos to get zoho setup fee upfront?

Hos to get zoho setup fee upfront?

I have a request from one of our clients.
They would like to charge a client only the setup fee (upfront, something like a deposit) lets say 100€ (it is a fee which comes dynamically using API from a CRM field).
After that the monthly fee to be triggered (separately) with a Zoho CRM rule (function) which will set the start date and then based on this start date to charge the card (the monthly fee).

So the request is 2 charges... The first charge is the setup fee upfront(as a deposit) and then with a Zoho CRM rule to set up the Start Date and trigger the monthly subscription based on this start date.

Is there any workaround on this?
Not sure if we can do it using the trial period.
I mean to set up the trial period for example 2 days, then the setup fee will be charged, and using API if we do the Trial Days 0 then this day the monthly fee will be charged from the day 0.
