What happens to active paid subscriptions if a promotional access is given via RevenueCat?

does anyone know how a real (paid) auto-renewable user subscription (e.g. 3 months * 30$ each 3 months) will behave on the users side (App Store / Play Store) when on the backend we give the same user a promotional access via RevenueCat in the middle of the subscription period?

Thanks in advance!

Hey @Wanilla!

Granting promotional access does nothing to the paid subscription - it will still be there and continue to renew, etc. and it doesn’t cancel the subscription.

If the promotional is granted for a longer duration than the subscription is active, the customer will retain access after their subscription expires (until the promotional expires).
