Hello @HD_WORK 👋

Thanks for reaching out. Shopify does not offer a mechanism to schedule and automate this process. The scheduling and the automation of billing attempts is the responsibility of the app developers. See:

You need to run a recurring cron job that iterates through your subscriptions, check which ones are active & equal to or past the next billing date, and then call the charge subscription mutation.
