DocsCurrentLast updated: June 20th 2023, @ 2:08:42 pm

Use a setup fee to charge the subscriber before the subscription begins, typically for items that aren't part of the regular subscription billing.

You set up the fee when you create the plan.

Example: Software license onboarding fee

The following example creates a setup fee with the following characteristics:

  • $10 setup fee for onboarding and configuration of a network vendor subscriber before purchasing a software license.
  • $15 per month for the regular billing cycle.

Sample request

"payment_preferences": {
    "setup_fee": {
      "value": "10",
      "currency_code": "USD"
