Upgrades & downgrades

  • You can downgrade a subscription using the subscriptions.insert method with the skuId that you want to downgrade to. It isn't possible to downgrade ANNUAL_MONTHLY_PAY and ANNUAL_YEARLY_PAY subscriptions during term, and it can't be done by using renewal settings: the downgrade must be done manually on or after renewal time. We recommend that you switch to FLEXIBLE by using the subscriptions.changeRenewalSettings method, then perform an adjustment after the renewal event. For more information about downgrades, see this Help Center article..

  • You can't combine transfer and SKU switch operations. For example, if you have a potential customer who is using Google-Apps-For-Business and wants to buy Google-Apps-Unlimited from you, you must transfer the customer first with the existing Google-Apps-For-Business SKU and then switch the SKU to Google-Apps-Unlimited.

  • Upgrades/downgrades start a new subscription and terminate the previous one. For annual plans, a new commitment starts when you make the call to the subscriptions.insert method.
