How do I enable dunning settings on my Chargebee site?
Dunning is a useful feature that enables Chargebee to automatically retry the payment for an invoice in case of a payment failure. When the auto collection is ON (either on the customer or Subscription) payment attempts will be made on the payment method on file (card/direct debit). On failure of the initial charge, dunning will kick-in to retry the payment in defined intervals.
For offline dunning (when the auto collection is OFF) only emails will triggered.
To enable dunning, head to Settings > Configure Chargebee > Dunning for online/offline payments. Chargebee offers different dunning configurations based on the customer’s payment method.
