A quote is an estimate of the invoice with the charges likely to occur when customers buy an item. A quote can be converted to a regular invoice once the customer accepts it.

The line items of a quote are grouped by charge events and are available as a separate resource. This resource can be retrieved using the List quote line groups endpoint. Note that the first quote line group is available within the quote resource itself and parsing the quote line groups object is not required.

    URL Format POST

    https://{site}.chargebee.com/api/v2/quotes/{quote_id}/convert
    invoice_date
    optional, timestamp(UTC) in seconds
    The document date displayed on the invoice PDF. Provide this value to backdate the invoice. Backdating an invoice is done for reasons such as booking revenue for a previous date or when the subscription is effective as of a past date. When not provided, the value is the same as current date. Moreover, if the invoice is created as pending, and if the site is configured to set invoice dates to date of closing, then upon invoice closure, this date is changed to the invoice closing date. taxes and line_item_taxes are computed based on the tax configuration as of invoice_date. When passing this parameter, the following prerequisites must be met:
    • invoice_date must be in the past.
    • invoice_date is not more than one calendar month into the past. For example, if today is 13th January, then you cannot pass a value that is earlier than 13th December.
    • The date is not earlier than quoted_subscription.start_date or quoted_subscription.changes_scheduled_at (whichever is applicable).
    • invoice_immediately must be true.
    .
    invoice_immediately
    optional, boolean
    If there are charges raised immediately for the subscription, this parameter specifies whether those charges are to be invoiced immediately or added to unbilled charges. The default value is as per the site settings.
    Note: invoice_immediately only affects charges that are raised at the time of execution of this API call. Any charges scheduled to be raised in the future are not affected by this parameter.
    .
    create_pending_invoices
    optional, boolean
    This attribute is set to true automatically for the subscription when it has one or more metered items. However, when there are no metered items, you can pass this parameter as true to force all invoices (except the first) to be created as pending. This is useful in the following scenarios:
    • When you manage metered billing at your end by calculating usage-based charges yourself and add them to the subscription as one-time charges.
    • When your workflow involves inspecting all charges before you close invoices.

    Note:

    • You must enable Metered Billing for this parameter to be acceptable.
    • To create the first invoice also as pending, pass first_invoice_pending as true.
    .
    first_invoice_pending
    optional, boolean, default=false

    Non-metered items are billed at the beginning of a billing cycle while metered items are billed at the end. Consequently, the first invoice of the subscription contains only the non-metered items.

    By passing this parameter as true, you create the first invoice as pending allowing you to add the previous term’s metered charges to it before closing. This is useful when the subscription is moved to Chargebee from a different billing system. As applicable to all pending invoices, this invoice is also closed automatically or via an API call.

    Note:

    This parameter is passed only when there are metered items in the subscription or when create_pending_invoices is true.

    Purchase order number for this subscription.
    subscription[auto_close_invoices]
