Renew a Subscription (Amendment)


Renew a Subscription (Amendment)

Creating and amending subscriptions in the Zuora Billing UI is only relevant for existing Subscribe and Amend customers who have not transitioned to Orders or Orders Harmonization. Any new customers will not see this UI.

When you renew a subscription, the current subscription term is extended by creating a new term. The number of periods that a subscription is extended is defined by the Renewal Term attributed to the subscription. If any charge in your subscription has the billing period set as SubscriptionTerma new charge segment is generated for the new term. For more information, see Define Billing Periods and Segmented rate plan charges (charge segments).

Use the following steps to renew a subscription.
