When customers pay in advance, a bookkeeper does not record the lump sum payment as revenue. Rather, the amount is recorded as a liability known as Unearned Revenue, or Unearned Income.

Many find it odd that unearned income would be classified as a liability. It is defined as a liability since the company has taken payment and accepted an obligation to perform a future service or provide a product in the future.
