Cycle sales - How to / Best practice


My customers has customers that is supplied in a cycle:

There are 12 week cycles. In these 12 weeks, there is a daily delivery of goods to the customer. At the end of these weeks, the customers finishes its product and then the invoice of all deliveries will be payed using a standard payment term of 7 days.

In my opinion, there are 2 ways of dealing with this:

1: Invoice every delivery separately, and use a moving payment term so all invoices will have the same due date.

2: Invoice all deliveries in one invoice at the end of the cycle.

Option 1 is preferred, because when the customer will bankrupt in the middle of a cycle, and there has been no invoice, then there is also nothing to claim.

Option 2 is my (as a consultant) preferred option because it is easy to implement and gives the user a clearer view over the customers position.

My question:

How would you solve this in SAP? Are there any more options I oversee, and what is the easiest way to implement the moving payment term.
