What timezone does ReCharge process in?
By default, charges are processed for recurring queued orders after midnight ET for the current day. This is standard for stores that have not set a specific processing time.
Charges that error out are automatically retried within the same day. These charges are retried at 4 pm ET unless a specific processing time is set.
How do I set my processing time?
Contact our support to set the processing time for both queued and errored orders.
Use a tool like this Time Zone Converter to determine the correct time for us to start processing your orders. change the processing time of your orders as we can set the exact hour that your store orders will start processing.
What timezone do cut-off windows operate in?
The cut-off window works in Eastern Time ET (UTC-5). Any order placed after 11:59:59 ET of the cut-off day will skip the next upcoming order.
When do discount codes expire?
If you have set an expiration date for a discount code the date of expiration is 11:59:59pm ET (UTC-5) of that day.
What timezone are the CSV exports in?
All dates and times in CSV exports are in Eastern Time ET (UTC-5).
Are notifications tied to a time zone?
Most notifications are tied to an event, therefore there is no set time they are triggered. Upcoming charge emails start sending at 8:00 PM Eastern Time ET (UTC -5). These emails are queued and sent out within a 3-5 hour window so it can take a while before all ReCharge stores have these emails sent out for the day.
When does ReCharge Analytics refresh?
ReCharge Analytics automatically syncs and displays new data every night at Midnight, Eastern Time ET (UTC-5).
How can I view my customer's subscription history in my store's timezone?
Customer account event history changes are by default displayed in the Eastern Time ET (UTC -5) but you can change this to your store's timezone by clicking on the Show in my store's time zone.
