Retrieve an upcoming invoice

At any time, you can preview the upcoming invoice for a customer. This will show you all the charges that are pending, including subscription renewal charges, invoice item charges, etc. It will also show you any discounts that are applicable to the invoice.

Note that when you are viewing an upcoming invoice, you are simply viewing a preview – the invoice has not yet been created. As such, the upcoming invoice will not show up in invoice listing calls, and you cannot use the API to pay or edit the invoice. If you want to change the amount that your customer will be billed, you can add, remove, or update pending invoice items, or update the customer’s discount.

You can preview the effects of updating a subscription, including a preview of what proration will take place. To ensure that the actual proration is calculated exactly the same as the previewed proration, you should pass the subscription_details.proration_date parameter when doing the actual subscription update. The recommended way to get only the prorations being previewed is to consider only proration line items where period[start] is equal to the subscription_details.proration_date value passed in the request.

Note: Currency conversion calculations use the latest exchange rates. Exchange rates may vary between the time of the preview and the time of the actual invoice creation. Learn more

Parameters

  • customerstring

    The identifier of the customer whose upcoming invoice you’d like to retrieve. If automatic_tax is enabled then one of customer, customer_details, subscription, or schedule must be set.

  • subscriptionstring

    The identifier of the subscription for which you’d like to retrieve the upcoming invoice. If not provided, but a subscription_details.items is provided, you will preview creating a subscription with those items. If neither subscription nor subscription_details.items is provided, you will retrieve the next upcoming invoice from among the customer’s subscriptions.

Delete a draft invoice

Permanently deletes a one-off invoice draft. This cannot be undone. Attempts to delete invoices that are no longer in a draft state will fail; once an invoice has been finalized or if an invoice is for a subscription, it must be voided.

Parameters

No parameters.

Returns

A successfully deleted invoice. Otherwise, this call raises an error, such as if the invoice has already been deleted.
