    Is this possible? I'm noticing that when paypal subscriptions fail on a domain the domain expires instantly. This creates some havoc when the site goes down and the reason it gives is; "unknown".
    Clients uses subscriptions to keep things paid and avoid the hassle and then this happens.

    Hi,

    Our application currently do not create a Paypal subscription if the customer pays the invoice late.
    When the invoice is paid on time (before its due date) then it allows to create a Paypal subscription.
    After a Paypal subscription is created, it is Paypal the one who automatically charge the customer every period.
    So, to answer your question, there is no way to charge the Paypal subcription earlier, but if the customer paid the invoice that created the Paypal subscription earlier than the due date, then the Paypal subscription will be also automatically charging the customer earlier every period.

    For example, if the invoice due date is on March 15, and the customer has paid the invoice on March 1, the the subscription was created in March 1, and it will doing the chrges based on that, so if the invoice is for example monthly, next due date will be in April 15, but the Paypal subscription will be charging it on April 1 or close to it.

    Thanks.
