Subscription with free trial - the charge date

Hi, If my app provides monthly subscription item with a 14-days free trial period, is there any way for me to decide when the user will be charged next time? 1. If the user first purchases on 5/1, what will be the first charge date? 2. If the user first purchases on 5/1, then canceled on 5/10, and then purchased again on 5/11, what will be the first charge date? 3. If the user already uses the free trial, and he/she is first charged on 5/31, what will be the following charge date for June, July and August? Is there any api to get the upon information? If not, are there any rules I can follow to calculate the date by myself? Thanks, Jerry

Hi Jerrycircle, Thank you for your post. Kindle Subscriptions charges day-of-month, each month, for a monthly. Meaning user gets charged every 15th of the month if that's when he started. If he purchased on the 31st, then he gets charged on the 31st / 30th / 28th (if Feb) / 29th (if Feb leap year). We do this automatically. Hope this answers all your questions.
