Our Monthly Recurring Billing has been working successfully for more than 1 year. However, there are two customers are charged multiple times on February 28, 2018, once an hour.  Other 3 customers (monthly recurring) are charged correctly on the same day.

The cron "commerce_recurring_cron" runs every hour, and created a new order of recurring billing for the same user.

All above payments of orders are charge successfully in Authorize.net. 

System: Drupal 7.56; Authorize.net Gate Way. 
Related modules: commerce 7.x-1.13, commerce_recurring 7.x-2.x-dev, commerce_order 7.x-1.11, commerce_payment 7.x-1.11, commerce_authnet 7.x-1.4, commerce_cardonfile 7.x-2.0-beta5+3-dev.

I have spent days on doing research,  and debugging the Drupal log and system log.  But I can't find any useful info. 
I cannot repeat the problem on our DEV site.  

I will deeply appreciate it if someone knows some clues about it by chance.

Thank you very much!

  • Any feedback on this one?

There is a fixed issue with Commerce Authorize.Net, discussed on https://www.drupal.org/project/commerce_authnet/issues/2161989.

If your setup already incorporates that fix, then most probably it is hitting the issue Duplicate queue items should not be created. Apply the patch in #6 and you should be fine.

  • Our module commerce_authnet 7.x-1.4 has already contained this patch which is for 7.x-1.1. <code> return (isset($transaction->status)) ? $transaction->status : TRUE; </code> Our commerce functionality of Monthly Recurring Billing had been working good for more than a year (2017). This problem just happened on February 28, 2018. It is also working good recently.
