We're introducing Apple Pay as a new payment method as part of our Elements for accounts which are using WorldPay as their payment gateway. With Apple Pay, you can offer your customers a seamless checkout experience that's fast and easy with just a touch of their finger.

Advance Invoicing

Platform Elements Elements Accounting

As a business, I want my customers to be able to create advanced invoices for scheduled renewals to start the collection process early.

This is a major feature that we're particularly excited about, because it empowers you to provide your customers with greater control over their subscription payments. By giving them the option to pay in advance, they can better manage their finances and avoid unexpected charges. This can lead to increased customer satisfaction and loyalty. In addition, supporting advance invoices and prepayments can provide a more consistent revenue stream for your business. By receiving payments upfront, you can better plan and budget for the future, which can lead to greater financial stability and growth.

Campaign Run Webhooks

Platform

As a Marketing Ops manager, I want the required (scheduled and ad-hoc) campaign reports to be automatically downloaded from Pelcro - in order to remove the manual aspects of the campaign report download process.

Our new feature ensures that both scheduled and ad-hoc campaign reports from Pelcro are effortlessly downloaded. Triggered by the completion of campaign runs, our campaign.run_completed webhook provides real-time notifications, which you can leverage to eliminate manual efforts and enhance data-driven decisions.

Exports API (phase 3)

Platform

As a collaborator, I want to be able to customize and automate various Pelcro exports, analytics, and accounting reports, so that I can eliminate repetitive and manual efforts within my operational and reporting functions.

We are excited to announce significant upgrades to our Exports API, designed to simplify and automate your operational and reporting tasks. With these latest enhancements, you can now access and customize exports of customer metadata and newsletters, providing you with valuable insights and streamlining your decision-making process.


Enhancements

Renewal Rate Reporting Enhancements

Platform

As a business analyst, I want to adjust the renewal rate formula used in our Analytics module to follow standard practice for subscription-based business models, so that we can produce more reliable results for our renewal rate report. This will help us make better data-driven decisions to improve customer retention and increase revenue.

We're upgrading our Analytics module by aligning the renewal rate formula with industry standards for subscription-based models. Expect more accurate and reliable results in our renewal rate report, empowering you to fine-tune customer retention strategies and drive revenue growth through insightful data-driven decisions.

Customer Address Deletion

Platform

As a collaborator, I want to be able to delete addresses because this will remove no longer-needed addresses from the associated customers.

We are excited to announce a new feature that allows you to delete addresses from associated customers from the platform. This feature will help streamline your customer data and remove any unnecessary or outdated addresses.

With this update, you can now easily navigate to the addresses page and delete addresses with just a few clicks. We hope that this new feature will make it easier for you to manage users' data and keep it up-to-date.

Add 'plan.type' to subscriptions list, accounting & fulfillments export

Platform

As a business owner, I want to easily identify plan types on my accounting and fulfillment exports, so that I minimize operational efforts.

With our latest update, identifying different plan types on accounting and fulfillment exports has never been easier. Enjoy streamlined operations as you effortlessly categorize plan types, minimizing operational efforts and maximizing efficiency.

Archived Products/Plans sorting

Platform

As a collaborator, I want to have an organized way for active and archived plans/products, so that my user experience is better

We've revamped the way you manage products and plans, products and plans are now sorted by their active/archived status. Now, when products or plans are archived, they gracefully move to the bottom of their respective lists, ensuring a seamless and efficient workflow.

In-Store subscription source

Platform

As a collaborator, I want to be able to have more payment source options because this will help me select the accurate source when creating a subscription.

We are thrilled to announce a new addition to our subscription payment source options – the 'In Store' option. Now you can enjoy the convenience of managing your subscriptions both in person and online. Making your experience even more flexible and seamless.

Additional fields in subscriptions export

Platform

As a business, I want to ensure that subscription exports contain all needed details for my operational needs, so that I can minimize data extraction.

We're introducing additional fields to our subscription exports, designed to streamline your operational and automation processes. These additions include subscription shipping address phone numbers, product IDs and internal names, along with customer organization IDs and names. With these enriched attributes available through our Platform/Export API, extracting necessary data becomes more efficient than ever before.

Add "Canceled By" to Canceled Subscriptions Report

Platform

As a data analyst, I want to have all relevant data points so that I can analyze my churn with ease

Our canceled and churned subscription reports just got even better. We've added "canceled_by" and "canceled_by_type" data points to give you deeper insights for your churn analysis. Get ready to uncover more with your analysis!

Stripe 3DS Enhancements

Platform Elements

As a customer, I would like to pay using my 3DS-enforced card for all transactions, to ensure my payments are secure.

We're thrilled to introduce a new level of payment protection. Now, for all your transactions, you can pay using your 3DS-enforced card. With this enhanced security feature, you can shop with confidence, knowing that your payments are fortified against unauthorized access.

Campaign Renewal Schedule Behavior

Platform 

As a business, I want to ensure that when an end-user decides to switch from Plan A to Plan B, the subscription behaves in a manner that aligns with their preferences and the autorenew flag.

We're excited to share an important improvement in our subscription renewal process. If you're moving from Plan A (auto-renew) to Plan B (auto-renew), your subscription will continue to auto-renew, unless you specify otherwise in the subscription renewal autorenew flag. Similarly, if you're switching from Plan A (non auto-renew) to Plan B (auto-renew), your subscription will also auto-renew, unless specified otherwise. We believe this enhancement will make managing your subscriptions even more convenient and tailored to your needs.
