Is there a way to NOT charge past due amounts for subscriptions in 0.7 and up?

My client has some angry customers. And so the client is angry. And getting charge-backs pretty frequently now.

Imagine a $25 subscription that's charged $100 or more one month (because they updated their card #).

Is there anyway to stop this?

    Ideally, you would setup an integration with the Subscription Datafeed and the API that would set subscriptions to expire when a payment can't be processed if you do not expect to collect those past-due amounts in the future. If you don't already have such an integration, you can still make calls the the API and use the subscription_modify method to terminate the subscription and reset the past-due amount. The use of the API is advanced, so please post again if you have any questions.

    Right now, there's no setting to change this, and while this doesn't come up every day, it is a major issue when it impacts a store that doesn't want it.

    So, for the future we'll look at making this optional, but for _right now_ I'd definitely agree with Lance. You could even just do a daily cron job to pull subs that have past due amounts > 0, then loop through and zero them out.
  • An option in 7.3 would be really nice. Cut out the overhead of having to customize this.
    - it would be great to leave the unpaid (so it can be seen), but not auto-charge it.

    thanks for the info guys.

    Thanks Chuck. We'll explore adding this to our next minor release.
