Default Subscription payments based on initial pay date: DONE

I only use xcart for subscriptions, so it was important that my customers be charged on a month to month basis based on when they last paid. After sifting through the payment process, I finally setup an auto-charge routine that charges based on the intial signup date.

This mod also sends the subscriber your fancy (rich text) invoice after each charge.

Currently, xcart's native subscription management charges ALL your subscribers a franctional amount based on how many days of the month they have been using the subscription. This is not standard for this type of service, hense this update.

I hope that this is written into the next "official" release of xcart. If you're not familiar with coding in PHP, you'll probably need some help.

The key file is xcart/admin/pay_subscriptions.php
X-Cart Version 4.0.14
The version I modified is:
# $Id: pay_subscriptions.php,v 1.23.2.6 2005/03/07 12:08:11 mclap Exp $

Steps:
1) make a copy of xcart/admin/pay_subscriptions.php
2) name it what you want, like autopay_subscriptions.php
3) make sure you setup your subscription key (ie pay_subscriptions.php?key=<your key here>) in the xcart config
4) replace everything in your new file with the mod EXCEPT for the function cc_processing($subscriptionid)
5) to run, the url would be like this: www.yourdomain.com/xcart/admin/autopay_subscriptions.php?key=<your key here>&charge=1
5a) if you want a display of your subscription customers, run it without the "&charge=1"
5b) to automate this, setup a CRONTAB job on your server and run nightly


Code:
#
# $Id: pay_subscriptions.php,v 1.23.2.6 2005/03/07 12:08:11 mclap Exp $

It's hard to say unless you post the array pull around line 76. A good way to test is to manually do the db pull in phpMyAdmin to make sure it actually finds something. If it pulls 0 records, that's the error you will get.

Do a manual query with phpMyAdmin and see if you get a result.

Default Re: Subscription payments based on initial pay date: DONE

If I set up a subscription product that does not have a setup fee, how do I get the cart and checkout pages to just show the (say) annual fee for the subscription and not the days remaining in the period fee?

Hmmm. Good question. It would be nice to see an example screen shot. I have a highly modified checkout system and "ezcheckout" mod too, so it's hard for me to answer your question.

I guess in a roundabout way I was trying to figure out how to get X-cart to forget about the whole "days remaining up to end of period" and the fee for the daily use of the subscription, and just apply the single subscription fee, say $20/year, and just use this single subscription fee throughout the checkout process.

Default Re: Subscription payments based on initial pay date: DONE

I think a while back I removed it from the smarty template, so it would not show "days remaining up to end of period". There's probably an answer on the board, but I don't know where. I don't remember which file I modified.
