Subscription Updater and Projected Invoices - Generally Available (GA)
Most of our customers now have both of these features enabled in all of their Fusebill environments (with the exception of a few of our customers with the largest end customer bases who are still being phased in gradually). Please check out the help articles below to read more about these great new features.
Hosted Registration Pages Improvements
Fusebill's Hosted Registration Pages now support ACH and PayPal as forms of payment (PayPal is available only if you have licensed it from Fusebill; contact email@example.com for more information).
Also, the product configuration page can now optionally show a running total of One-time and Recurring charges in real-time as the customer changes their plan and product configurations. This feature requires configuration by Fusebill Support; contact us for more details.
The Subscription Updater feature's Jobs tab now has more detailed information about the results of each update. You can get a detailed list of any failed updates (including the reason for failure), and there are additional filters and search criteria you can use to process these results.
Billing Run Performance Improvements
Our nightly billing run performance has been enhanced, particularly for the large majority of our customers who bill on the 1st of the month. We have made changes so that more billing actions occur in parallel and the speed of each billing activity has been improved.
API Performance Improvements
We have also been working hard on improving the performance of the API endpoints that our customers use most frequently, and which have the greatest impact on your end customers' buying experience. In particular, the following API calls should see a measurable gain in performance:
This work is ongoing and we will continue to monitor our API usage and performance statistics and make improvements over time.
Small Updates and Enhancements
In addition to the major features, we are always working on small enhancements to hopefully make your Fusebill experience that much better. Here's what's new this release:
The Financial Calendar now shows the monthly summary totals at the top of the page.
Please be advised that the next Production release date has been rescheduled to Wednesday, December 2 so as not to interfere with billing on December 1. The release to Staging is still planned for Thursday, November 26.
#16510: Duplicate requests for payment sent via the API (from double-click) resulted in double charges but only one recorded payment.
NOTE: Fusebill's fix is to record both payments, which is accurate because both were accepted by the gateway. Integrators should ensure they code their UI to prevent rapid double-clicking by the user in order to avoid double payments being sent to the gateway.
#16587: Could not connect to Salesforce from Fusebill Staging environment
