Payment channel subscription "upgrades"

I have 2 in-channel products, both monthly subscriptions. One for HD content and one for 4K. If someone subscribes to the HD content I would like to give them the ability to "upgrade" to the 4K subscription. The only way I can find to do this currently is to cancel the HD subscription and at the same time as they purchase the 4K subscription. This results in them recieving a cancellation and subscription email at the same time, which could get confusing.

Is there a slicker way to acheive this?

Re: Payment channel subscription "upgrades"

I was wondering this same thing.  Another use case with the same issues is "upgrading" from a monthly subscription to a yearly subscription, where the yearly product has a discount over the monthly.

Any way to handle this upgrade seamlessly?

Re: Payment channel subscription "upgrades"

Hi Ben, since you already have 'In-Channel' channels and I would like to set one up also but just wondering if you can clarify for me the below question asked when adding the In-Channel channel. The channel I want to add will have a monthly subscription so I'm not sure what the below is asking. I don't have any products for sale in the channel, I just want to be able to give a 3 day trial, then after that they can subscribe to the monthly subscription if they want to continue using the channel. I don't have any products for sale within the channel, only the channel itself for a monthly subscription so not sure what to select below. Thank you

*Cleared for Sale
