What's New in Version 1.5 (Say)

“Supply creates its own demand”

Jean Baptiste Say
(1767 - 1832)



As businesses evolve through an everchanging economic climate, operations and offerings must adapt to the demands of customers. In the world of economic evolution, a business wants to offer the best possible features to its customers to promote loyalty and healthy competition within the market. A way of promoting this sense is ensuring that you are not only catering to the needs of the customer but also exceeding them. This can be done by easing the process for you and your customers with convenient solutions to track and proceed with payments.

Jean Baptiste Say understood the importance of catering to the needs of those that keep your business alive. A true economist, Say dedicated a majority of his work to documenting the importance of effective selling values and how this affects the purchasing power of the market. He formulated a law of markets and wrote a book titled "A Treatise On Political Economy", which was published in 1803. Given that our current release is centered around promoting payment ease for our clients, it only made sense to fashion it after him.

So without further ado, let’s introduce Release v1.5 "Say".

PLATFORM UPDATES

  • Beta Introducing Vantiv as our latest addition to our list of supported payment gateways (Vantiv), to offer your customers more variety when it comes to payment processing. If you are signing up, or paying for your recurring subscriptions, eCommerce products, or both, these can now all be processed through Vantiv. As a business owner you can choose Vantiv as a payment gateway when first creating your account.
  • Ignoring online marketing is like opening a business but not telling anyone. That's why we're introducing "Campaigns" to further promote your analytics and data collection. You'll now be able to create campaigns directly off of the platform, and tie them in with your subscriptions either at creation or renewal. Much like UTMs, this is helpful if you would like to track your campaigns and know which ones contributed the most to the success rate of your sign ups or conversion, while maintaining them on your records, all in one place.
  • We further enhanced our new membership management feature, and now, the membership admin can create new and update existing addresses for individual members as necessary. This helps you track your individual member information and keep everything up to date.

INTERFACE REFINEMENTS

  • Another UI enhancement to ease the process for you and your customers. Instead of having to pay invoices via the platform, we’ve decided to remove all the extra steps and give your customers option to pay their invoices directly through their dashboards. This enhancement is created to make the payment process quick, efficient, and easy to track.

API ADDITIONS

  • First and foremost, we're introducing a new way to manage your webhooks via the Pelcro Core API. Now, we're taking your automation to the next level by allowing you list, update, view details, subscribe, or unsubscribe from webhooks directly through the API. You'll be able to add webhook endpoints, descriptions, and select the events you want to subscribe to, much like how you do it on the platform, but even faster!

  • Introducing our very own stand-alone invoice builder APIs, which will allow you to create and track invoices on platform that are not particularly related to subscriptions or eCommerce orders. This allows you to use Pelcro as the source of truth while maintaining all the relevant payment records not only for your online products & services, but also your offline ones.

  • We added a new CORE API endpoint that you can use to create, and read payments, in order for you to charge customers. This is particularly helpful when you want to create offline payments directly through the Pelcro APIs, much like online payments, without the need to do it manually from the platform.

  • To supplement the new enhancements on membership management, we added a new SDK API endpoint to allow you to update/add address IDs assigned to the individual member record.

  • We've enhanced our customer CORE API endpoint by introducing more expandable objects: addresses and payment methods. Expanding relationships helps you reduce the number of requests you make to the Pelcro API, which boosts efficiency and performance in one go.

WEBHOOKS ADDITIONS

  • Added New hosted_invoice_url and invoice_pdf attributes where added in the invoice resource.
