Requirements

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

  • Use Avangate customer references or External customer references belonging to the target customer. Avangate 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 Avangate customer reference and External customer reference they need to belong to the same target customer entity.

Parameters
