Upon success, a status code of 201 (Created) will be returned. If a customer cannot be created with the provided data, a status code of 400 (Bad Request) will be returned.

Additionally, subscriptions can be created simultaneously with the customer. If there are one of more subscription failed during the creation, a status code of 207 (Multi-Status) will be returned.

The response field can be either Customer (Create Customer 201 response), Subscription (Create Subscription 201 response) or CreateSubscriptionFailure type. CreateSubscriptionFailure response type has a MerchantSubscriptionRefId field for the failure subscription, and an ErrorMessage field for the error description. For a sample of each response type, refer to the 207 response sample below.
