The renewals command is intended to be run as part of an automated script run at least once a day. It will
- recognize revenue for past periods (see ledger).
- extends active subscriptions
- create charges for new periods
- trigger expiration notices
Every functions part of the renewals script are explicitly written to be
idempotent. Calling the scripts multiple times for the same timestamp
(i.e. with the
--at-time command line argument) will generate the
Charge only once.
Example cron setup:
$ cat /etc/cron.daily/renewals #!/bin/sh cd /var/*mysite* && python manage.py renewals
