How to manage subscriptions - charge on shipment

1. Charge payment before shipping

The charge on shipment is typically used by organisation such as Wine Clubs.  When they are ready, they may want to break up the charging of shipments to say include all subscribers with Red Wine only first up, then White Wine second and finally Mixed Red/White afterwards.

This procedure steps you through starting the Recurring Payment Processor run for the select subscriptions and Payment Options.  

For On Shipment, the recurring payment processor looks for all recurring payment records that:

  • Are not PayPal
  • The related Merchant Facility is Active
  • The related Payment Form - Recurring Payment Type is set to "On Shipment"
  • The Payment Form for the Recurring Payment matches the Subscription Issue related Payment Form.  This is the Subscription Issue where the Payment Charge process was initiated from.
  • The Subscription is NOT the First Issue
  • The Subscription Has Subscriptions Remaining is true
  • The Recurring Payment - Transact Generated is NOT selected
  • The Recurring Payment - Last Attempted Date is blank or less than today
  • The Subscription - Last Issue Purchased does not equal the Subscription Issue the charge processor is generated from
  • If Payment Option is selected in the charge processor run, then the Subscription Payment Option matches the one selected.

Navigate to the Subscription Issue Tab, Select the appropriate filter
