Use the setProductUpgradeSchema method to set a product’s upgrade schema via API.


Parameter Type Required Description
UpgradeSettings Object Required Details below.


Integer Required

The Upgrade pricing scheme.
1 – Shopper pays the full upgrade product price;
2 – Shopper pays the difference between the original subscription and the upgraded product;
3 - Shopper pays a prorated upgrade price calculated using the most recent costs incurred by the customer;
4 – Shopper pays prorated upgrade price calculated using the product's pricing set up at the time of the order.

          OptionPriceOperator String Optional The operator that specifies how is the upgrade price impacted (not used for prorated upgrade pricing schemes):
- ADD – the value set as OptionPricePercentage is added to the  upgrade price;
- SUBTRACT – the value set as OptionPricePercentage is subtracted from the upgrade price.
          OptionPricePercentage Integer Optional The percentage of the upgrade price to be added/subtracted from this one (not used for pro-rated upgrade pricing schemes).
          UseProductCatalogPricing Boolean Optional When true, it enables the usage of product catalog pricing. Removing custom prices also disables any existing retention campaigns for the selected subscriptions.
          ProrateIgnoreGracePeriod Boolean Optional When true, it makes the grace period be ignored when calculating Upgrade. Use this option to ignore the grace period set in your Renewal Settings when computing the prorated price for the upgrade.
          SubscriptionUpgradeType Integer Required Determines the Subscription period option for the upgrade:
1 - Create a new subscription (disable the existing one);
2 - Prolong the subscription from the upgrade purchase date;
3 - The upgrade does not affect the original subscription duration. If you upgrade a lifetime subscription to a product that has recurring options, the subscription will remain lifetime, as its duration is not affected by the upgrade process.
AllowUpgradeFrom Array of Strings Required List of product codes corresponding to the products that can be upgraded to the product of reference.
