What do Subscription statuses mean?

This article outlines the different status options for subscriptions.

The subscription status

There are a few different statuses for subscriptions. Only subscriptions with a Current status will run.

  • Current. There is a valid payment method associated with the subscription. Subscriptions with this status are expected to run on their next billing date.
  • Pending. There is no stored payment method associated with the subscription yet. The client still needs to submit their card or bank details in order for the subscription to run. You can send them a Subscription Link to collect these details and bring the subscription to a current status.
  • Needs Attention. The currently associated stored payment method was declined. Sometimes payments will be declined for insufficient funds, the credit card expired, or a variety of other reasons. You can retry the stored payment method or capture a new payment method by sending the Subscription Link to the client.
