Use the setSubscriptionCustomer method. 2Checkout moves subscription under the customer for which you provide the 2Checkout customer reference or the External customer reference during the subscription update process.



To move a subscription from a source customer to a target customer:

  • Use 2Checkout customer references or External customer references belonging to the target customer. 2Checkout re-assigns the subscription to the target customer. 
  • Customer references must be valid and associated to the target customer entity under which you move the subscription.
  • If you provide both the 2Checkout customer reference and External customer reference they need to belong to the same target customer entity.


Parameters Type/Description


Required (string)


Session identifier, the output of the Login method. Include sessionID into all your requests. 2Checkout throws an exception if the values are incorrect.  The sessionID expires in 10 minutes.


Required (int)


System-generated customer reference. Required unless you prefer to use ExternalCustomerReference.


Optional (string)


External customer reference that you control. Optional when you use AvangateCustomerReference. If you include it, it needs to belong to the same customer as the AvangateCustomerReference.


Parameters Type/Description


true or false depending on whether the changes were successful or not.
