Consider selling a 6-month subscription for monthly magazine issues for which you wish to bill your customers on the 25th of the month and ship issues on the 10th, every month. Further, based on when the customer signs up during the month, say you wish to ship the first issue as follows (subject to payment):
|Sign-up Period||Shipping Day for the First Issue|
|1st - 10th||10th|
|11th - 15th||Same as payment day|
|16th - end of the month||10th of next month|

Moreover, if the payment for the subscription is delayed beyond say, 15th, you wish to cancel the first shipment.
Then you would configure Chargebee as follows:
Enable calendar billing with
- Calendar billing date: 25th
- Billing cutoff date: 15th
Configure Chargebee Orders as:
- Shipping date: 10th
- Shipping cutoff: 15th
