Order Subscription Now

You can initiate orders from active subscriptions with either all subscription items, or manually select only some of the items to place a partial order. A partial order will also allow you to add additional one-time purchase items.


There are two optional site settings that allow you to configure Order Now behavior if desired. These are available under the Subscriptions tab on System > Settings > General.

  • Order Now Resets Next Order Date: When enabled, the next order date will be reset based on the current date and frequency whenever the Order Now action is performed on a subscription. If disabled, the next order date that already exists will remain unchanged. This is enabled by default.
  • Allow Order All or Partial Items Now Once Every _ Days: After ordering either all or partial items now, both of these actions will be restricted for this amount of days. For example, if a full order is created on September 20 and this setting is configured as 10 days, then both the entire order and partial order actions will not be available until September 30.

Order All Items

When you initiate an order for all subscription items, the system will create an order based on any Next Order Only updates if they exist. After placing the order, the Next Order Only updates will be removed from the subscription. If you have not prepared any Next Order Only updates, then the new order will use the same item, shipping, and payment information as the original subscription.

Whether or not placing this order updates the Next Order Date on the subscription will depend on the "Order Now Resets Next Order Date" site setting.

  1. Click Order All Items Now in the Actions menu.The Subscription Details page with a callout for Order All Items Now in the Actions menu
  2. Click Confirm. You will not have the opportunity to make any changes to the shipping and payment information, nor add any additional coupons or one-time purchase items because the order will be immediately placed as-is. A pop-up asking for confirmation to place the order

Order Partial Items

Unlike Order All Items Now, initiating a partial order will allow you to add one-time purchase items and change the shipping, payment, or coupon information for the order. Placing a partial order will not change the Next Order Date on the original subscription.

  1. Click Order Partial Items Now in the Actions menu. 

    If you have already prepared changes for the subscription's next continuity order via the Update Next Order Only feature, those changes will be removed before you select items for a partial order. If this is the case, a pop-up will appear and ask you to confirm before any action is taken..

  2. In the modal that appears, change the shipping address or shipping method and the payment details if needed. By default, this order will have the same shipping and payment information as the subscription.The Shipping and Payment windows of the Order Partial Items Now modal
  3. Select items you want to order using the checkboxes. Uncheck a line item to exclude it from the order, which will update the order summary with new totals.The Items to Order Now section showing checked and unchecked items

    The order must include at least one subscription item, so you cannot uncheck all subscription items. You will receive an error message if you attempt to remove the last subscription item from the line items.

  4. Change quantities as needed using the editable Quantity fields. You will not be able to increase the amount of an item to more than the subscription's existing amount, only reduce quantity (which will then prompt you to select a reason).The Items to Order Now section with a callout for the Quantity field
  5. Click Add Item to add a new empty line item to the order.The Items to Order Now section with a callout for the Add Item button

    • Items that are enabled for both subscription and one-time purchases will only use their non-subscription pricing, and you will not be able to add any subscription-only items. These items will not be added to the subscription itself, and so will not be included on future continuity orders. The Items to Order Now section with a callout for the new line item
