Does the extension create an order when a customer subscribes to a product?

 

No, orders are not created until a payment gets processed on the payment gateway side.

 

When a customer subscribes to a product, a Payment Profile is instantly created under Subscriptions-> Recurring Profiles -> All . At this point, no order gets created under Sales-> Orders.

 

Later on, when the actual charge takes place on the payment gateway side, a new order will appear in the Magento. The extension only creates order after it receives the payment confirmation from the gateway side.

 

In a situation where a customer subscribes to a product, and the start date differs from the current date, the customer will first be charged* (and a new order will appear in your Magento) on the subscription start date.

 

*NOTE: If you use PayPal system, and enable Initial Fee for your subscriptions, this fee will be instantly collected when a customer subscribes to a new product. However, no order will be created in the Magento. Refunding the Initial Fee amount is also only possible on the PayPal side.
