Kyle answers:

Does your account support Automated Recurring Billing (ARB)?

Kyle comments:

If you do, on the form fields page when you are setting up your payment field under transaction type you can choose from Products and Services which is a single one time payment, or Subscriptions... if you have enabled Authorize.Net's Automated Recurring Billing option then you'll be able to select the Subscriptions option. From there you can choose Recurring Amount, Billing Cycle, Recurring Times and Trial Period.

Thanks Kyle!

But it doesn't work. As i understand it needs something to add in function.php

like :

add_filter( 'gform_authorizenet_subscription_pre_create', 'change_subscription_start_date', 10, 4 );

Kyle comments:

If you are just trying to delay the initial billing period you can set that with the Trial Period time. Would that solve it or do you have a specific kind of date functionality in mind?

If you're just delaying the process all together something like this would work:

add_filter( 'gform_authorizenet_subscription_pre_create', 'change_subscription_config', 10, 1 );
function change_subscription_config( $subscription ) {

$subscription->startDate = gmdate('Y-m-d', strtotime("+30 days"));
return $subscription;

Kyle I founded this code [[LINK href=""]]here [[/LINK]] before but it doesn't work. I try it but it again save like <strong>startDate </strong> the today date not 30 days later.

Kyle comments:

Where are you seeing that startDate value?

In the backend admin in the Gravity form Entries
