Open eBay Apps Change Plan - Expected behavior when user changes from one plan to another plan without unsubscribe and then subscribe again.

 

 

When switch plan functionality is enabled and if a user switches plans for a NON prorated plan the plan will be treated as a prorated plan and cancelled immediately.

If the user switch plans before billing then the old plan will stop right away and the new rate will start as of the switch date.

If the user switch plans after billing then the old plan will be credited back and the new plan will start as of the switch date.

Here is a few use cases for switching plans: (The monthly rate is based on the current bill cycle days)
