GitHub Marketplace

About the GitHub Marketplace API

For more information about GitHub Marketplace, see "GitHub Marketplace."

The GitHub Marketplace API allows you to see which customers are using a pricing plan, see a customer's purchases, and see if an account has an active subscription.

Testing with stubbed endpoints

This API includes endpoints that allow you to test your GitHub App with stubbed data. Stubbed data is hard-coded, fake data that will not change based on actual subscriptions.

To test with stubbed data, use a stubbed endpoint in place of its production counterpart. This allows you to test whether API logic succeeds before listing GitHub Apps on GitHub Marketplace.

Be sure to replace stubbed endpoints with production endpoints before deploying your GitHub App.

Get a subscription plan for an account

Shows whether the user or organization account actively subscribes to a plan listed by the authenticated GitHub App. When someone submits a plan change that won't be processed until the end of their billing cycle, you will also see the upcoming pending change.

GitHub Apps must use a JWT to access this endpoint. OAuth Apps must use basic authentication with their client ID and client secret to access this endpoint.
