MemberPress allows the new member a 24 hour grace period on recurring subscriptions, to give the gateway time to setup the subscription on their end and process the first payment. This usually happens almost immediately but in some cases it can take up to 24 hours to complete (especially with Authorize.net). Without the grace period, the member would have to wait for this to happen before they could access the protected content. You can disable the grace period in the MemberPress Options if you want to make your member’s wait though. If after 24 hours, the subscription’s expiration date has not updated then there may be issues with your gateway setup or settings. So please be sure you followed the setup instructions for your gateway correctly.
