Next Billing Date 

Next Billing Date refers to the date on which a subscription will get renewed and the payment will get collected. In Chargebee, billing date is a subscription specific attribute: it will be based on the date of subscription activation and the billing frequency of the plan.

Example

Sign up Date: Oct 1st (Monthly Plan)

   Next Billing Date: Nov 1st 

 Sign up Date: Oct 1st (Weekly Plan)
   Next Billing Date: Oct 8th 

Sign up Date: Oct 1st 2015 (Yearly Plan)
   Next Billing Date: Oct 1st 2016 

When there is a trial period associated with a plan, the subscription will get activated only after the trial ends. In this case, the billing date will be based on the activation date.

Example

Sign up Date: Oct 1st (Monthly Plan with 15 days trial period)

   Activation Date: Oct 16th
   Next Billing Date: Nov 16th

The billing date of a subscription can be altered any time via the web interface or using the Change Term End API .

Changing the billing date of a subscription will postpone or prepone the renewal of the subscription and will not include any proration.

Note
  • Only when the subscription is in Active state, the billing date of a subscription can be changed.
  • In case of trial and future subscriptions, the billing date would not have been set for the subscription. Hence there will be option to only change the Trial end Date and the Start date of the subscriptions, respectively.
  • For non-renewing subscriptions, the billing date will not be set as the subscription will get canceled. Hence, there will be an option to change the cancellation date of the subscription.
