Is SubscriptionContract's nextBillingDate value incorrect ?

We tested to buy a daily subscription product at 2021-02-03T02:00:00Z. Then, We called SubscriptionContract GraphQL. Like below.

 

 

subscriptionContract(id: $id) {
  id
  nextBillingDate
}

 


It returns this.

 

{
  id: 'gid://shopify/SubscriptionContract/35127445',
  nextBillingDate: '2021-02-03T21:00:00Z',
}

 

 

The "nextBillingDate" value should be 2021-02-04T02:00:00Z or 2021-02-03T21:00-05:00.

For now, We add 5 hours to the nextBilligDate value for this issue.

After the successful BillingAttempt, are you setting the new nextBillingDate with a local or UTC datetime? It should be a UTC datetime.

Thanks for replying.

No, We just do to buy a daily subscription product.  Then, We called SubscriptionContract GraphQL.

Sounds like someone is confusing a UTC and a local timezone when the SubscriptionContract is created. Maybe take this to the Subscriptions API forum section?
