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.

Enter the parameters below into the request URL. For example:
To determine what the price would be if the quantity is changed, add the
newquantity parameter. For example:
|The plan ID for which you want to retrieve the cost information.|
|The number of subscriptions for which you want to retrieve the combined cost.|
You must include
newquantityparameter. If you want to see the cost of the new quantity on the current plan, enter the current
planId. If you want to see the results if you change the plan and the quantity, enter the new values for both.
If successful, the response HTTP status code is 200 OK.
The response contains the retrieved price object.
If you included the
newquantityparameter in the Request, the response price is price of the subscription multiplied by the new quantity.
