ARB Zero Cycle Subscriptions C# .NET

I'm working on a C# .NET ARB implementation. My customer processes the first cycle of a subscription via a one time charge, then the remaining cycles occur monthly or annually on a specified billing day of the month. Long term they would like to allow annual ARB subscriptions, but currently they would like these to be a one time charge for one year only. However, they would like to retain support for enabling renewal of these annual subscriptions. A few questions on this.

 

1. Can the number of cycles be increased on a subscription via a subscription update, or is a new subscription required to add cycles? 

 

2. Could I create an annual subscription with zero cycles, IE one that never creates a transaction. I would want to do this so I could then go in and run an update to increase the cycles (if question #1 above is a yes), and avoid having to make the end customer enter in their credentials again for a new ARB subscription.

 

Thank you,
