PreviewOptions

Table of contents

Use the PreviewOptions object with the amend() and subscribe() calls to specify whether the call should return an actual subscription or amendment, or a preview of what the subscription or amendment would be if activated. This is useful when you want to see what charges would be for a customer considering an order (such as a new order, upgrade/downgrade, adding a product, or adding additional units). You can also use this to debug during implementations or when writing new business logic with the Z-Commerce API.
