Using CIM with a free trail then charging later

We have a client that wants to sell a single digital download software product on a monthly subscription basis. The catch is that the first month is to be a free trial, then reoccuring billing will take place assuming the trial is not canceled. Our question is: at the time of the online customer "purchasing" the product can we use CIM to create a user account, but not charge their CC at that time simply store it for later use in the CIM - then after one month has past can we send a request to do the actual first payment transaction?

yes, once the customer/payment profile is created. you can create transaction with it at anytime.
