Create an email billing

At the moment Cryptopay offers a system that allows for the creation and management of email billing exclusively through the API. Remember, that in a merchant's account, the email billing items are viewable without the capacity to make edits.

Let's create a subscription:

curl -X POST \ \
-H 'Authorization: HMAC ***' \
-H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
-H 'Date: Tue, 19 Mar 2019 10:11:40 GMT' \
-d '{"custom_id":"209584732", "name":"subscriptionName", "amount":"10", "currency":"EUR", "period":"month", "period_quantity":"1", "starts_at":"2023-08-25T15:53:02+00:00", "payer_email":"", "payer_name":"John Doe", "product_name":"Product name", "product_description":"Product description", "success_redirect_url":"", "unsuccess_redirect_url":""}'

Let us go through the parameters we used in our request above:

  • custom_id - we recommend you to specify a certain reference by which you associate your customer with the payment

  • name - descriptive name for the subscription.

  • amount - subscription price.

  • currency - the currency of payment, i.e. the currency into which the cryptocurrency received will be converted and in which the merchant will be credited to the balance

  • period - periodicity of the subscription. Can be one of the following:

    • day

    • week

    • month

    • year

  • period_quantity - number describing the jumps in periodicity (e.g., 2 for every two weeks).

  • starts_at - date before which the first payment should be made. Аfter this date, the subscription will be cancelled.

  • payer_email - email of the subscribing user.

  • payer_name - name of the payer.

  • product_name - name of the product.

  • product_description - description of the product.

  • success_redirect_url - URL for successful payment redirection.

  • unsuccess_redirect_url - URL for unsuccessful payment redirection.

You will receive all that information back with status of the subscription and its id

    "data": {
        "id": "8b0c6e70-16ba-4b97-87ea-378de1e04ad5",
        "status": "active",
        "custom_id": "209584732",
        "name": "subscriptionName",
        "amount": "10.0",
        "currency": "EUR",
        "period": "month",
        "period_quantity": 1,
        "current_period_starts_at": "2023-08-10T15:53:02+00:00",
        "current_period_ends_at": "2023-08-25T15:53:02+00:00",
        "current_period_paid": false,
        "payer_email": "",
        "payer_name": "John Doe",
        "product_name": "Product name",
        "product_description": "Product description",
        "success_redirect_url": "",
        "unsuccess_redirect_url": "",
        "created_at": "2023-08-10T15:53:02+00:00",
        "cancelled_at": null

It's crucial to note that the minimum acceptable date for the starts_at field is 3 days from the moment of the request creation, considering the current time. Additionally, from the moment of the request until the starts_at date, the subscription will be in an active status. It is assumed that during this period, the subscribing customer will have access to the designated product.

Upon successful subscription creation, you gain control over various management aspects:

By leveraging these endpoints, you can manage subscriptions, track statuses, and ensure an optimal customer experience.
