The RatePlanChargeData object is used to pass complex data to the subscribe() and subscribeWithExistingAccount() calls. Each RatePlanChargeData object identifies one RatePlanCharge object and a list of one or more RatePlanChargeTiers.

The subscribe() and subscribeWithExistingAccount() calls do not require you to include RatePlanChargeData. Use this to override the price, override the description, or set quantities.

This SOAP API reference describes this complex type including supported calls and field descriptions.

Supported Calls

This object supports the subscribe() and subscribeWithExistingAccount() calls. 


All field names are case sensitive.

Name Required? Type Description

A single RatePlanCharge. If you are not working with volume or tiered pricing model (such as Flat Fee and Per Unit), can override the price and set quantity with the RatePlanCharge object.
