Subscription represents the recurring items a customer has subscribed to. The recurring items can be - plan, addons. It may also contain the discount items like coupons.

Subscriptions are invoiced at the start of every term based on the recurring items and charged immediately against the customer's credit card if 'auto_collection' is turned 'on', otherwise the resulting invoice will be created as 'Payment Due'.

Note: The maximum number of subscriptions for any given customer (active or not) is 900.

    Creates a new subscription along with the customer. You can attach a plan, plan quantity, one or more addons and coupon while creating this subscription.

    Future Subscriptions

    If the start_date is specified, the subscription will be created in 'future' state (.ie, instead of starting immediately it will be scheduled to start at the specified 'start_date'). Besides if 'trial' is specified (plan configuration or specified explictly using trial_end), the subscription will go into 'trial' state when it starts. Otherwise it will directly become 'active' when it starts.

    Trial Period

    If the plan has trial period or if the trial_end is specified explicitly, the subscription will be created in 'in_trial' state.

    If the card details are passed, it is not charged until the end of the trial period. Incase you need to verify the card you could enable the 'card verification option' in the gateway settings.

    Invoice

    If the plan does not have a trial period and if any of the recurring items has charges, then a invoice would be raised immediately. If 'auto_collection' is turned 'on', then card attributes are mandatory and subscription will be created only if the payment was successful.

    Card details

    Passing card details to this API involves PCI liability at your end as sensitive card information passes through your servers. If you wish to avoid that, you can use one of the following integration methodologies if applicable

    • If you are using Stripe gateway, you can use Stripe.js with your checkout form. Take a look at this Stripe tutorial for more details.
    • If you are using Braintree gateway, you can use Braintree.js with your checkout form. Please refer this tutorial for more details.
    • If you are using Authorize.Net gateway, you use Accept.js with your checkout form.
    • In case you are using the Adyen gateway, you will have to use the Adyen’s Client Side Encryption to encrypt sensitive cardholder data. Once the cardholder data is encrypted, pass the value in adyen.encrypted.data as temp token in this API.
    You can also use our Hosted Pages based integration.

    Legacy behavior:
    • For sites created before March 1st, 2014: On making this request, the billing_address and vat_number of the customer are deleted and replaced by the values passed with this request. Ensure that you pass the billing address parameters and the vat_number parameters each time you make this request, to avoid losing the same information at the customer-level.
    • For sites created on or after March 1st, 2014: This request does not alter the billing_address and vat_number of the customer.

    Creates a new subscription for an existing customer. You can attach a plan, plan quantity, one or more addons and coupon while creating this subscription.

    If the plan does not have a trial period and if any of the recurring-item has charges, then the customer is charged immediately if auto_collection is turned 'on'. In that case, subscription is created only if the customer has a payment method on file and attempted payment is successful.

    Notes

    If an invoice gets generated during this operation, available Credits and Excess Payments will be automatically applied.

    Note: Cannot be called when the subscription is on a contract term. (That is, when the contract_term.status attribute is active.)

    If the subscription is in Non Renewing or In Trial state and is also scheduled to cancel at the end of current term, then this API can be used to remove the scheduled cancellation. When a scheduled cancellation is removed, the subscription will revert to Active or In Trial state, whichever is the state before cancellation was scheduled.

    While removing the scheduled cancellation, you may specify the number of billing cycles. If the billing cycle is not specified, the default billing cycle from the plan will be applied on the subscription.

    This operation supports 3DS verification flow. To achieve the same, create the Payment Intent and pass it as input parameter to this API.

    You can modify the plan, plan quantity and add or remove addons for the subscription. By default the changes are applied immediately and the charges (/credits) are prorated and adjusted with the next billing term. You may also choose to effect the changes at the end of the current term by passing end_of_term as "true". In this case proration will not be done.

    Only the parameters that are passed are modified for the subscription. Rest will reflect the existing values.

    By default, the addons passed are appended to the existing list of addons for this subscription. In case a passed addon already exists for this subscription, quantity value is replaced. If you want to completely replace the addons for this subscription, pass replace_addon_list as "true".

    Card and 'vat_number' attributes can also be passed during subscription update. If they are passed, corresponding Billing Info attributes - the Billing Address and 'vat_number' - will be replaced automatically.

    Passing credit card details to this API involves PCI liability at your end as sensitive card info passes through your servers. If you wish to avoid that, you can use one of the following integration methodologies if applicable

    • If you are using Stripe gateway, you can use Stripe.js with your checkout form. Take a look at this Stripe tutorial for more details.
    • If you are using Braintree gateway, you can use Braintree.js with your checkout form. Please refer this tutorial for more details.
    • If you are using Authorize.Net gateway, you use Accept.js with your checkout form.
    • If you are using the Adyen gateway, you will have to use the Adyen’s Client Side Encryption to encrypt sensitive cardholder data. Once the cardholder data is encrypted, pass the value in adyen.encrypted.data as temp token in this API.
    • You can also use our Hosted Pages based integration.

    Notes

    Proration Scenario: A customer changes from a $15 plan to $30 plan after 15 days of a monthly term. He will be charged for $7.50 immediately. The following Credit Note and Invoice will be generated

    Credit Note
    Prorated credits for Old Plan $7.50
    Invoice
    Prorated charges for New Plan $15.00
    Total $15.00
    Credits ($7.50)
    Amount Due $7.50

    Meanwhile downgrading will result in net credits being created which will be applied when the subscription is charged on start of the next term. Learn more about our proration scenarios here.

    Billing Cycle: The billing period for a subscription does not change if the plans intervals of both old and new are same. However, if a customer changes to a plan that has different billing interval(say monthly to yearly), the billing period is reset. Customer is charged immediately for the modified subscription after applying credit for the unused period for the old subscription.

    Card and VAT number Input: If they are passed, corresponding Billing Address attributes and vat_number will be replaced. i.e existing values for Billing Address and 'vat_number' will be cleared and the new values will be set.

    If an invoice gets generated during this operation, available Credits and Excess Payments will be automatically applied.

    Advance charges, if any, will be refunded as credits and a new invoice will be generated on renewal.

Provide the value as a decimal string in major units of the currency. Can be provided only when multi-decimal pricing is enabled. If changes_scheduled_at is in the past and a unit_price_in_decimal is not passed, then the item price’s current unit price is considered even if the item price did not exist on the date as of when the change is scheduled.
    invoice_date
    optional, timestamp(UTC) in seconds
    The document date displayed on the invoice PDF. The default value is the current date. 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. Moreover, if create_pending_invoices is set to true, 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.

    billing_cycles
    optional, integer, min=0
    The number of billing cycles the subscription runs before canceling. If not provided, then the billing cycles set for the plan is used.
    terms_to_charge

    reactivate_from
    optional, timestamp(UTC) in seconds
    If the subscription status is cancelled and it is being reactivated via this operation, this is the date/time at which the subscription should be reactivated.
    Note: It is recommended not to pass this parameter along with changed_scheduled_at. reactivate_from can be backdated (set to a value in the past). Use backdating when the subscription has been reactivated already but its billing has been delayed. Backdating is allowed only when the following prerequisites are met:
    • Backdating must be enabled for subscription reactivation operations.
    • The current day of the month does not exceed the limit set in Chargebee for backdating subscription change. This limit is the day of the month by which the accounting for the previous month must be closed.
    • The date is on or after the last date/time any of the product catalog items of the subscription were changed.
    • The date is not more than duration X into the past where X is the billing period of the plan. For example, if the period of the plan in the subscription is 2 months and today is 14th April, changes_scheduled_at cannot be earlier than 14th February.

    replace_coupon_list
    optional, boolean
    If true then the existing coupon_ids list for the subscription is replaced by the one provided. If false then the provided list gets added to the existing coupon_ids.
    prorate
    optional, boolean
    Raise prorated credits or charges as applicable while changing the subscription. When not provided, the value is taken from the site settings.
    end_of_term

    force_term_reset
    optional, boolean, default=false
    Say the subscription has the renewal date as 28th of every month. When the plan-item price of the subscription is set to one that has the same billing period as the current plan-item price, the subscription change does not change the term. In other words, the subscription still renews on the 28th. Passing this parameter as true will have the subscription reset its term to the current date (provided end_of_term is false).
    Note: When the new plan-item price has a billing period different from the current plan-item price of the subscription, the term is always reset, regardless of the value passed for this parameter.
    reactivate

    .
    override_relationship
    optional, boolean
    If true, ignores the hierarchy relationship and uses customer as payment and invoice owner.
    changes_scheduled_at
    optional, timestamp(UTC) in seconds
    When change_option is set to specific_date, then set the date/time at which the subscription change is to happen or has happened. Note: It is recommended not to pass this parameter along with reactivate_from. changes_scheduled_at can be set to a value in the past. This is called backdating the subscription change and is performed when the subscription change has already been provisioned but its billing has been delayed. Backdating is allowed only when the following prerequisites are met:
    • Backdating must be enabled for subscription change operations.
    • Only the following changes can be backdated:
      • Changes in the recurring items or their prices.
      • Addition of non-recurring items.
    • Subscription status is active, cancelled, or non_renewing.

    Changes the subscription's current term end date. Depending on the "status" of the subscription, "term end date" has different effects.

    • If the Subscription is in trial, it affects trial end date.
    • If the Subscription is active, it affects the next billing date.
    • If the Subscription's status is non_renewing, this affects the upcoming cancellation date.

    Tip: To cycle through a couple of billing cycles and test webhooks, you may use this API.

    Notes

    • When changing the term_end for active / non_renewing subscriptions, by default no additional charges (when term gets extended) will be added or credits (when term gets reduced) will be issued. However you can specify prorate param as true for adding prorated charges / issuing prorated credits. Further for the charges that got added, you can specify invoice_immediately as false to add them to unbilled charges and invoice them later.
    • Advance charges, if any will be credited back during this operation.
    • Confirm the UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) time zone selected in your Chargebee site matches with your country region.

    This operation supports 3DS verification flow. To achieve the same, create the Payment Intent and pass it as input parameter to this API.

    This API is used to reactivate a cancelled subscription. You may also optionally specify a trial end date, to move the subscription to In Trial state. If trial end is not specified, the subscription will be activated and any applicable charges will be initiated.

    Unless the billing cycle is specified, it will be set to plan's default billing cycle.

    During an in-term reactivation++, unless the billing cycle is specified, the subscription's remaining billing cycles will be restored. If a trial end date is specified, then the plan's default billing cycle is used.

    What is an "in-term reactivation"?
    An "in-term reactivation" happens when the billing term of the subscription is retained upon cancellation and reactivation is initiated within that term.

    When is the ‘billing term’ retained for a cancelled subscription?
    When dunning (payment failure retry settings) is configured with the last retry configured as

    • cancel subscription and mark invoice as ‘Not Paid’, or
    • cancel subscription and mark the invoice as ‘Voided’ and the case if any of the current term invoices is partially or fully paid, the invoice is not voided but instead Chargebee marks the invoices as ‘Not Paid’.

    Note : In both cases, the billing term is retained and upon reactivation the subscription will be moved to active state (if the plan does not have a trial period) and no invoice will be generated. Ensure that you collect any unpaid invoices.

    Example : A Subscription was billed from 1st to 31st of a month and it was cancelled on the 20th due to one of the above cases (billing term is not reset). If the reactivation happens on 25th then it is considered an in-term reactivation.

    Notes

    Reactivation of a subscription in non_renewing state has been deprecated. To remove a scheduled cancellation of a non_renewing Subscription, use Remove Scheduled Cancellation API.

    However, if you use reactivate API to remove scheduled cancellation for a non_renewing Subscription, then the status will be set to active and the billing cycle will be set to forever. If any value is passed for trial_end or billing cycle, an error will be thrown.

    If an invoice gets generated during this operation, available Credits and Excess Payments will be automatically applied.

    Additional Error Scenarios: If there is a need to create an immediate charge and the collection fails, an error will be thrown.

    https://{site}.chargebee.com/api/v2/subscriptions/{subscription_id}/reactivate
    trial_end
    optional, timestamp(UTC) in seconds
    Providing this parameter indicates that the subscription reactivates with an in_trial status and the trial period ends at the date provided. The value must not be earlier than reactivate_from. Note: This parameter can be backdated (set to a value in the past) only when reactivate_from has been backdated. Do this to keep a record of when the trial ended in case it ended at some point in the past. When trial_end is backdated, the subscription immediately goes into active or non_renewing status.
    billing_cycles
    optional, integer, min=0
    Number of cycles(plan interval) this subscription should be charged. After the billing cycles exhausted, the subscription will be cancelled.
    reactivate_from
    optional, timestamp(UTC) in seconds
    The date/time at which the subscription was reactivated. When not provided, the subscription is reactivated immediately on calling this API. The value of this parameter must always be in the past (backdating). Do this when the subscription has already been reactivated and the billing has been delayed. The following prerequisites must be met for this parameter to be passed:
    • The backdating feature has been enabled for subscription reactivation operations.
    • The current day of the month does not exceed the limit set in Chargebee for backdating such operations. This day is the day of the month by which the accounting for the previous month must be closed.
    • The date is not more than duration X into the past where X is the billing period of the plan. For example, if the period of the plan in the subscription is 2 months and today is 14th April, reactivate_from cannot be earlier than 14th February.
    .
    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.

    invoice_date
    optional, timestamp(UTC) in seconds
    The document date displayed on the invoice PDF. The default value is the current date. 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. Moreover, if create_pending_invoices is true, and if the site is configured to set invoice dates to the 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.

    Pausing a subscription will move the subscription from its current state to Paused state, and will stop all recurring actions.

    You could schedule the pause by passing specific_date/end_of_term parameter in pause_option. If scheduled, the subscription will not be paused until the specific_date/end_of_term is reached.

    UNBILLED CHARGES

    Any unbilled charges present in the subscription can be invoiced by specifying invoice or no_action. If invoice is chosen, automatic charge will be attempted on the payment method available if the customer has enabled auto-collection. If payment collection fails or when auto-collection is not enabled, the invoice will be closed as unpaid.
    If no_action is chosen, charges will be added to the resumption invoice.

    INVOICE DUNNING HANDLING

    If invoice is in the dunning cycle, invoice_dunning_handing allows you to stop or continue dunning.
