Subscription Charges

subscription.charge.completed

FastSpring sends the subscription.charge.completed webhook each time we successfully charge a customer for a subscription. Applicable charges include:

  • Automatic rebills
  • Managed subscription rebills
  • Proration following a subscription upgrade or downgrade

FastSpring does not send this webhook after the initial purchase. Instead, we send order.completed and subscription.activated webhooks. There may be delays during routine batch processes such as rebills and deactivations. When this happens, the webhook immediately enters a queue to complete.

When Webhook Expansion is enabled, the webhook returns the full order, account, and subscription objects, rather than just the order ID, account ID, and subscription ID.

👍

For optimized results, we recommend utilizing API calls as the final authority related to the status of a subscription; this is more reliable than implementing webhooks to track events such as subscription renewals.
