When a domain is transferred out

Recommended Posts

hello,

 

I have WHMCS set up with the Enom reseller program  and a client recently transferred a domain away to another registration. The transfer was successful and in WHMCS the status now says "Transferred Away".

 

I was assuming that the invoice that existed for the domain renewal would be automatically cancelled, but that does not appear to be the case.

 

just wondering if this is expected behavior or not?

 

thank you

if the invoice was already generated before the transfer began, then i'm not sure that WHMCS would cancel it automatically - off-hand, I can't think of a similar case we've had to deal with, so have never ran into this... after the domain has been transferred away, it shouldn't generate future renewal invoices, but that sounds irrelevant in your case if it was created before the transfer.

unless one of the support techs replies and tells you differently, I suspect you'll have to cancel the existing invoice manually.

Thanks for your reply. 

it would be nice if WHMCS were set up to cancel the invoice automatically, since obviously it should not be paid once the domain is transferred away.  However, I will just go in and cancel it manually.

So as far as you know, it won't continue to renew / generate invoices in the future? The client is concerned because when he logs in to his client area of WHMCS, it still says "auto renew" after the domain, even though it also says "Transferred Away".

 

Thanks again

@somecows As @brian! indicated you would need to cancel the invoice manually, we don't cancel already generated invoices for domain names when they are transferred away.  In terms of future invoices, no these will not be generated, as 1) It's in transferred away status therefore no-longer under your control 2) The Next Due date is not updated therefore the cron has no indication it needs to create an invoice.
