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'.

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. Please refer this 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.
You can also use our Hosted Pages based integration.

Billing Address

  • The Billing Address is significant especially when EU VAT or Customized Tax options are in use, because tax calculations will be based on this address.
  • In the case of EU VAT, for customers without Billing Address, taxes will not be included.
  • In the case of Customized Tax option, the billing address will be used to determine tax if shipping address is not available for the customer. If both addresses are not available, tax calculation will not happen.

Note: For the sites created before 1st Mar 2014, customer's billing address and 'vat_number' will be replaced automatically whenever the associated card gets updated. i.e existing values for billing address and 'vat_number' will be cleared and the new values will be set. This behaviour is changed now - The VAT number should always be passed along billing address and not with card address. Both the addresses have to be dealt separately.

Billing Address attributes shall be explicitly passed for customers paying offline(Cash, Check, Bank Transfer etc).

Shipping Address

The Shipping Address is significant for the Customized Tax option, because tax calculations will be based on this address. For customers without Shipping Address, Billing Address details will be used to calculate taxes. If neither of the addresses are available for a customer, taxes will not be calculated for him/her.

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.

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. Please refer this tutorial for more details.
  • If you are using Braintree gateway, you can use Braintree.js with your checkout form.
  • 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 billed a total of $7.50 immediately. Calculation will be as follows:

Prorated Charge(New Plan) $15.00
Prorated Credit(Old Plan) for unused period ($7.50)
Total prorated amount $7.50

Downgrading will result in credit being created which will be applied when the subscription is charged on start of the next term.

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.

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.

When changing the current term there won't be any prorations calculated. All future renewals(if applicable) of the subscription will be shifted based on the new date.

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

Notes

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

Cancelling a subscription will move the current state of the subscription to the cancelled state and will stop all recurring actions.

You could schedule the cancellation by passing end_of_term parameter as true. If scheduled, the subscription status will be set to non_renewing if it is in active state until the end of term and then cancelled. Subscription's state will not change if it is in in_trial state. However, cancellation will be scheduled at the trial end date.

While cancelling a subscription, we try to collect all pending amount against the current and old invoices. No refund for the unused period is processed (let us know if you need have specific refund scenarios).

If the collection of pending charges fails while cancelling, it will still be moved to cancelled status. We will continue to retry collecting the payment based on the configured retry settings until it is manually overridden.

Notes

Advance charges, if any, will be refunded as credits.

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 canceled 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.
