Instant Conversion Transaction

This function allows merchant to instantly upgrade an existing subscription. By “upgrade” we explicitly mean bring forward the rebilling date immediately, perform a transaction and start the rebilling period from now. The initial trial period for the item will no longer be valid.

This is only available on items that have an initial trial period that has been defined in the initial transaction via Sale request. If there is no initial period, the request will be rejected. Instant upgrade is only available for credit card transactions. Alternate payments are not supported.


HTTP Method API URL API Version
POST{subscriptionID}/instantconversion >= 002

Accepted parameters

No field are needed in the request. The subscription ID is in the URI.

Code samples

Note: Gateway API transactions are done with a different library than payment-page API. See the code sample comments for more info:

    *   Transaction name is 'InstantConversion', once you create a new transaction passing this as parameter, 
    *   you need to set the mandatory data using the following method:
    *    setSubscriptionID()

    $transaction = $client->newTransaction('InstantConversion', 'testMerchant', 'testPassword');

    $response = $transaction->send();

        $transactionID  = $response->transactionID;
        $subscription   = $response->subscription;
    } else {
