For the store I'm working on, each standard Cartthrob order creates entries in both the Orders and Purchased Items channels. And I need the Subscriptions orders to do the same after each occurrence.

Does anyone know if Cartthrob Subscriptions does that for EACH occurrence? As far as I could find, the docs only say this...

CartThrob subscription orders are placed like standard orders, and will show up in the customer's order history. Standard order emails will also be sent in the case of a successful transaction, or in case of failure.

Thanks for your help.

I can confirm this since I've been using CT Subscriptions with one of my clients for the last 7 months. Each time a subscription is rebilled, an order entry is created in the orders channel. I can't confirm the purchased items channel as I have that disabled since they're not selling digital goods–but I would believe it would do the same.

You can edit/cancel/update subscriptions right from the subscription module in the CP. Also, there are different notification event triggers for rebills that you should take advantage of too.

  • Thanks @Siebird for confirming that Order channel entries are created. I was hoping someone could confirm that the Purchased Items entries are also created... that's a critical part of our order fulfillment process. Commented Jan 11, 2013 at 18:08
  • Just run a test to check that. Make a subscription, then go into the exp_cartthrob_subscriptions table and manually change the start_date to over a month ago (unix timestamp) and then manually run the subscriptions through the CT Admin > Subscriptions > Process Subscriptions button
