Use the disableRecurringBilling method to disable recurring billing for a subscription. When you disable recurring billing, the subscription status doesn’t change. Users continue to use subscriptions with recurring billing disabled until they expire, and Avangate provides them with the option to renew their subscription through manual payments.


Parameters Type/Description




Required (string)


Session identifier, the output of the Login method. Include sessionID into all your requests. Avangate throws an exception if the values are incorrect.  The sessionID expires in 10 minutes.


Required (string)


Unique, system-generated subscription identifier.


Parameters Type/Description


true or false depending on whether the changes were successful or not.



require ('PATH_TO_AUTH');

$subscriptionReference = 'YOUR_SUBSCRIPTION_REFERENCE';

$jsonRpcRequest = array (
'method' => 'disableRecurringBilling',
'params' => array($sessionID, $subscriptionReference),
'id' => $i++,
'jsonrpc' => '2.0');

var_dump (callRPC((Object)$jsonRpcRequest, $host, true));
