Customer

The base of a subscription

Customers are of course your most valuable asset. In Upodi, Customers have a profile which contains information on the customer and associated payment methods, i.e. a credit card, in order to charge the customer for their subscriptions.

A customer holds information such as contact details, addresses and currency. These informations are passed around the billing of subscriptions, and will be included on the final invoice of a billing cycle.

Using the API

curl -X POST https://api.upodi.io/v2/customers/
-H 'Content-type: application/json'
-H "Authorization: Bearer Zjc0YjNjMTMtNWIwNi00MGMxLTljMjctMzhiM2EzZmE5NGRk;" 
-d '{ ' \
-d ' "accountnumber" : "CU-000120", ' \
-d ' "currencycode" : "EUR", ' \
-d ' "autobill" : true, ' \
-d ' "fullname" : "Sample Customer" ' \
-d '}'
UpodiService upodi = new UpodiService("aab31984-0256-4d10-afe2-c6a4f35bcf40");
var customerId = upodi.Customers.Create("CU-0020", "Customer Account", "EUR");

Preferrence currency
A customer will have a preferred currency or the default currency. This states in which currency the customer will be billed. Upon a billing cycle Upodi will try to fulfill this preferrence by matching the customer currency with the product plan currencies available. Should a match exist, the subscription and following invoices, will be in the matching currency. If no match is found, the product plan default currency superseeds the decision.

🚧

Currency calculations

Upodi does not calculate pricing on currencies. We merely pass on the currency between states of subscriptions and match these with the proper payment.
