Update trial days in existing recurring charge

45 1 4

We are using Shopify's recurring charge REST API.

Currently, we are adding 30 trial days by default.

We need to update trial days for customers on request.

There is no way to update trial days using API.

The current process is to cancel the existing charge and create a new one and get approved charge again from the merchant. 


Is there any better solution so that we can update trial days based on request?

An alternative would be to issue an application credit (https://help.shopify.com/en/api/reference/billing/applicationcredit) for the extra days of trial (pro-rated), assuming the merchant is going to stick with the app.
