How to know whether a user is paid or not?

    Hey , 


    There is no endpoint in the API and functionality in the SDK to check whether a user is paid or not. However, I would love to learn more about what you are trying to do, maybe we can arrive at another solution.


    What do you mean by direct link?

     The functionality is required as the application that we are designing will be used by our clients having either paid or unpaid accounts. So there is a need to set {shared_link: { unshared_at: '0000' } } for paid members and 

    { shared_link: serviceAccountClient.accessLevels.DEFAULT } for unpaid members.

     so to clarify, you want to know if they’ve paid you, or if they have a paid Box account?


    We don’t have an API to check if a user is a paid Box user at the moment. To check if a user has paid you, we recommend keeping your own mapping between the user ID (or enterprise ID) and their paid status in your own database.


    Does that help?
