Create a subscription

Creates a new subscription on an existing customer. Each customer can have up to 500 active or scheduled subscriptions.

When you create a subscription with collection_method=charge_automatically, the first invoice is finalized as part of the request. The payment_behavior parameter determines the exact behavior of the initial payment.

To start subscriptions where the first invoice always begins in a draft status, use subscription schedules instead. Schedules provide the flexibility to model more complex billing configurations that change over time.

Parameters

  • customerstringRequired

    The identifier of the customer to subscribe.

  • cancel_at_period_endboolean

    Boolean indicating whether this subscription should cancel at the end of the current period.

  • currencyenum

    Three-letter ISO currency code, in lowercase. Must be a supported currency.

  • default_payment_methodstring

    ID of the default payment method for the subscription. It must belong to the customer associated with the subscription. This takes precedence over default_source. If neither are set, invoices will use the customer’s invoice_settings.default_payment_method or default_source.

  • descriptionstring

    The subscription’s description, meant to be displayable to the customer. Use this field to optionally store an explanation of the subscription for rendering in Stripe surfaces and certain local payment methods UIs.

  • itemsarray of objectsRequired

    A list of up to 20 subscription items, each with an attached price.

  • metadataobject

    Set of key-value pairs that you can attach to an object. This can be useful for storing additional information about the object in a structured format. Individual keys can be unset by posting an empty value to them. All keys can be unset by posting an empty value to metadata.

  • payment_behaviorenum

    Only applies to subscriptions with collection_method=charge_automatically.

    Use allow_incomplete to create Subscriptions with status=incomplete if the first invoice can’t be paid. Creating Subscriptions with this status allows you to manage scenarios where additional customer actions are needed to pay a subscription’s invoice. For example, SCA regulation may require 3DS authentication to complete payment. See the SCA Migration Guide for Billing to learn more. This is the default behavior.

    Use default_incomplete to create Subscriptions with status=incomplete when the first invoice requires payment, otherwise start as active. Subscriptions transition to status=active when successfully confirming the PaymentIntent on the first invoice. This allows simpler management of scenarios where additional customer actions are needed to pay a subscription’s invoice, such as failed payments, SCA regulation, or collecting a mandate for a bank debit payment method. If the PaymentIntent is not confirmed within 23 hours Subscriptions transition to status=incomplete_expired, which is a terminal state.

    Use error_if_incomplete if you want Stripe to return an HTTP 402 status code if a subscription’s first invoice can’t be paid. For example, if a payment method requires 3DS authentication due to SCA regulation and further customer action is needed, this parameter doesn’t create a Subscription and returns an error instead. This was the default behavior for API versions prior to 2019-03-14. See the changelog to learn more.

    pending_if_incomplete is only used with updates and cannot be passed when creating a Subscription.

    Subscriptions with collection_method=send_invoice are automatically activated regardless of the first Invoice status.

    Possible enum values
    allow_incomplete
    default_incomplete
    error_if_incomplete
    pending_if_incomplete

Update a subscription

Updates an existing subscription to match the specified parameters. When changing prices or quantities, we optionally prorate the price we charge next month to make up for any price changes. To preview how the proration is calculated, use the upcoming invoice endpoint.

By default, we prorate subscription changes. For example, if a customer signs up on May 1 for a 100 USD price, they’ll be billed 100 USD immediately. If on May 15 they switch to a 200 USD price, then on June 1 they’ll be billed 250 USD (200 USD for a renewal of her subscription, plus a 50 USD prorating adjustment for half of the previous month’s 100 USD difference). Similarly, a downgrade generates a credit that is applied to the next invoice. We also prorate when you make quantity changes.

Switching prices does not normally change the billing date or generate an immediate charge unless:

  • The billing interval is changed (for example, from monthly to yearly).
  • The subscription moves from free to paid, or paid to free.
  • A trial starts or ends.

In these cases, we apply a credit for the unused time on the previous price, immediately charge the customer using the new price, and reset the billing date.

If you want to charge for an upgrade immediately, pass proration_behavior as always_invoice to create prorations, automatically invoice the customer for those proration adjustments, and attempt to collect payment. If you pass create_prorations, the prorations are created but not automatically invoiced. If you want to bill the customer for the prorations before the subscription’s renewal date, you need to manually invoice the customer.

If you don’t want to prorate, set the proration_behavior option to none. With this option, the customer is billed 100 USD on May 1 and 200 USD on June 1. Similarly, if you set proration_behavior to none when switching between different billing intervals (for example, from monthly to yearly), we don’t generate any credits for the old subscription’s unused time. We still reset the billing date and bill immediately for the new subscription.

Updating the quantity on a subscription many times in an hour may result in rate limiting. If you need to bill for a frequently changing quantity, consider integrating usage-based billing instead.

Parameters

  • cancel_at_period_endboolean

    Boolean indicating whether this subscription should cancel at the end of the current period.

  • default_payment_methodstring

    ID of the default payment method for the subscription. It must belong to the customer associated with the subscription. This takes precedence over default_source. If neither are set, invoices will use the customer’s invoice_settings.default_payment_method or default_source.

  • descriptionstring

    The subscription’s description, meant to be displayable to the customer. Use this field to optionally store an explanation of the subscription for rendering in Stripe surfaces and certain local payment methods UIs.

  • itemsarray of objects

    A list of up to 20 subscription items, each with an attached price.

  • metadataobject

    Set of key-value pairs that you can attach to an object. This can be useful for storing additional information about the object in a structured format. Individual keys can be unset by posting an empty value to them. All keys can be unset by posting an empty value to metadata.

  • payment_behaviorenum

    Use allow_incomplete to transition the subscription to status=past_due if a payment is required but cannot be paid. This allows you to manage scenarios where additional user actions are needed to pay a subscription’s invoice. For example, SCA regulation may require 3DS authentication to complete payment. See the SCA Migration Guide for Billing to learn more. This is the default behavior.

    Use default_incomplete to transition the subscription to status=past_due when payment is required and await explicit confirmation of the invoice’s payment intent. This allows simpler management of scenarios where additional user actions are needed to pay a subscription’s invoice. Such as failed payments, SCA regulation, or collecting a mandate for a bank debit payment method.

    Use pending_if_incomplete to update the subscription using pending updates. When you use pending_if_incomplete you can only pass the parameters supported by pending updates.

    Use error_if_incomplete if you want Stripe to return an HTTP 402 status code if a subscription’s invoice cannot be paid. For example, if a payment method requires 3DS authentication due to SCA regulation and further user action is needed, this parameter does not update the subscription and returns an error instead. This was the default behavior for API versions prior to 2019-03-14. See the changelog to learn more.

    Possible enum values
    allow_incomplete
    default_incomplete
    error_if_incomplete
    pending_if_incomplete
  • proration_behaviorenum

    Determines how to handle prorations when the billing cycle changes (e.g., when switching plans, resetting billing_cycle_anchor=now, or starting a trial), or if an item’s quantity changes. The default value is create_prorations.

    Possible enum values
    always_invoice

    Always invoice immediately for prorations.

    create_prorations

    Will cause proration invoice items to be created when applicable. These proration items will only be invoiced immediately under certain conditions.

    none

    Disable creating prorations in this request.

Cancel a subscription

Cancels a customer’s subscription immediately. The customer will not be charged again for the subscription.

Note, however, that any pending invoice items that you’ve created will still be charged for at the end of the period, unless manually deleted. If you’ve set the subscription to cancel at the end of the period, any pending prorations will also be left in place and collected at the end of the period. But if the subscription is set to cancel immediately, pending prorations will be removed.

By default, upon subscription cancellation, Stripe will stop automatic collection of all finalized invoices for the customer. This is intended to prevent unexpected payment attempts after the customer has canceled a subscription. However, you can resume automatic collection of the invoices manually after subscription cancellation to have us proceed. Or, you could check for unpaid invoices before allowing the customer to cancel the subscription at all.

Parameters

No parameters.

More parameters

  • cancellation_detailsobject

  • invoice_nowboolean

  • prorateboolean

Returns

The canceled Subscription object. Its subscription status will be set to canceled.
