Before creating subscriptions, you must create a plan. You can also retrieve existing plans via the API. A plan is a template for your subscriptions: when you create a plan, it will be used to populate the following attributes when a new subscription is created:
billing day of month
number of billing cycles
result = gateway.plan.create( :name => "the_name", :billing_frequency => "the_billing_frequency", :currency_iso_code => "the_currency_iso_code", :price => "the_price" )
You will need to specify the
plan_id when creating a subscription.
Add-ons and discounts are created in the Control Panel. You can't create or update them through the API.
Add-ons and discounts can be applied manually on a case-by-case basis, or you can associate them with certain plans to apply them automatically to new subscriptions. When creating a subscription, it will automatically inherit any add-ons and/or discounts associated with the plan. You can override those details at the time you create or update the subscription.
When creating an add-on or discount you can specify:
If an add-on or discount is active on an existing subscription, it will appear in the add_ons or
discounts array in the subscription response object.
