This will allow you to change various parameters related to a particular recurring payment subscription from one particular lead. A few limitations to keep in mind:
  • PayPal subscriptions cannot be edited, since Paypal manages the subscriptions in-house and they do not allow modifications from external sources.
  • Payment subscriptions with status Cancelled or Terminated (meaning payment plans where all scheduled payments have already been paid) cannot be changed since they are not technically active anymore.
POSTsubscription_product_id** ***integer
POSTsubscription_price_point** ***integer
POSTsubscription_next_payment_date ***'yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm' format Timezone EST
POSTsubscription_amount ***decimal
POSTsubscription_recurrence ***
