PLATFORM UPDATES

898

Introducing Tap payments as our latest addition to our list of supported payment gateways, to offer a seamless and scalable payment experience 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 Tap payments. Tap supports processing payments in 10+ currencies, allowing you to authorize customers in their native currency while receiving funds in yours.


Failed payment retries WorldPay (Vantiv)

1782

If you are using Vantiv as your payment gateway and would like to configure payment dunning for failed payments, you can now use our payment retries setting to allow Pelcro to attempt to retry your customer’s credit card based on the specified settings if we receive a response from your payment gateway indicating that the card cannot be successfully charged.


Subscription End Date

2492

As an admin, you are now able to update the end date of the subscription to before or after the existing end date. If you update the subscription to after the existing end date, the time period where the subscription was extended will have a new status called 'extended'. This will make it easier for you to see which subscriptions have been extended.
Note:

  • You will not be able to update subscriptions with renewals/phases added to them
  • You will only be able to update subscriptions that are not on autorenew

Renewals on Campaign Builder

2430

You can now create bulk renewals on subscriptions that you segment on lists as part of the campaign builder. This functionality will allow you to select a new plan you want all the selected subscriptions to renew on and it will be scheduled as a future phase. You can also receive on export with the status of the renewals.


Invoice Payment Link

2670

You're end-users can now pay any open invoice through our Invoice Payment Link. This link is available on the platform, webhooks and Core API. Any user with this link can pay off an invoice. This is super useful for collecting online payments after an invoice is created without it being charged automatically as part of the subscription.


eCommerce Inventory Management
You can now add a quantity to your eCommerce SKUs. The quantity will decrement with each order placed for a specific SKU and will return an error if an order is being made on a SKU with quantity=0.

API, WEBHOOKS, and SDK ADDITIONS

APIs:

  • Core API: We've introduced the ability to include the new attribute old_provider_id with important objects being created within Pelcro to help you keep track of them as they relate to legacy platform which you've been using for subscription management prior to Pelcro. This is applicable to products, plans, subscriptions, invoices, and charges on their respective CREATE endpoints.
