Good afternoon,
Here's a minor glitch. If you try to add a charge to a customer on a free plan with no credit card information entered, it fails (which is expected behavior, of course).

However, it fails with a 401:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><error id="46857" code="401" auxCode="">Cannot add a charge when the customer's subscribed plan is free and the subscription does not have current credit card information</error>

It seems like this should be a 412 or maybe a 400.

    Yup -- It should be a 400. We also found some other 401's that should have been 400's. We'll put that in the next major release unless you need it earlier for some reason.

    Thanks for the heads up.
