Managing subscriptions and payment sources

Extending subscriptions


Subscriptions can be extended by using the Subscription.extend method, which takes a positive timedelta as its only property. This method is useful if you want to offer time-cards, gift-cards, or some other external way of subscribing users or extending subscriptions, while keeping the billing handling within Stripe.


Subscription extensions are achieved by manipulating the trial_end of the subscription instance, which means that Stripe will change the status to trialing.
