Retrieve Subscription Switch Charge Amount

The Retrieve Subscription Switch Charge Amount request enables you to retrieve the amount that would be charged to a shopper if you changed the subscription to a different plan or to a different quantity or both. If the switch would result in a negative balance, then the value parameter shows 0.00.

This request does not make any changes to the subscription; it just retrieves the new price. To make the switch, use the Update Subscription request.



Your shopper's subscription (ID 98989) is currently associated with the Silver Plan, at a cost of $10 per month. It is halfway through the month, and you would like to find out how much the subscriber would be charged if you switched their subscription to the Gold Plan (ID 111111, cost of $20 per month) today. To do this, you would send a GET request in this format:

Because the month is half over, half of the amount that was charged for the Silver Plan is remaining (i.e. $5). That amount would be applied to the charge for the Gold Plan, so the value returned is 15.00.
