Novum 4.2.0 release notes

Improved stability on SCI and pre-paids

Based on our merchant feedback, we’ve made strides in improving the stability of the billing process for merchants using the Shopify Checkout Integration (SCI). The previous implementation would occasionally surface errors when a shopper was checking out while the system was processing recurring orders. With the most recent updates, the team has kept error mitigation and a seamless customer experience in mind so processing recurrent orders will be less likely to cause an error, especially when multiple customers are attempting payments in a store. 

We’ve also rolled out general stability improvements for pre-paids.

LoyaltyLion V2 Now Generally Available for SCI & SCI(m)!

LoyaltyLion is a rewards and loyalty platform that specializes in customer retention and LTV via their post reward-application data and analytics. 

How does it work?

  • Loyalty points redeemed via LoyaltyLion translate to Recharge discount codes
  • Dynamic discount codes are generated and displayed for the end user upon redemption
  • Merchants can analyze usage, engagement, etc. in LoyaltyLion based off of processed Shopify & Recharge charges

What has changed?

  • Merchants can now choose whether discount codes should be eligible for checkout or for to be applied to existing subscriptions via the portal which means that customers get to pick what type of discount code they would like to redeem their points for (checkout or subscription). This ensures that discount code usage is accounted for in their respective platform when used by the customer, which avoids any potential abuse of discount code usage.
  • Discount codes can now apply to multiple charges
  • Codes are created in both systems if the merchant is on SCI or SCI (m)

New API Resource: Bulk Plans resource in v2021-11

Merchants can now use our new Bulk Plans endpoint to create, update, or delete multiple plans for a specific product in one API call. They can also leverage our new async batch types, which will allow them to make updates to plans on multiple products at once.

This feature expands our current Plans endpoint in v2021-11, and merchants can now use the new Bulk Plans resource to:

  • Bulk create new plans for a product
  • Bulk update existing plans on a product
  • Bulk delete plans from a product

Note: a single product can have a maximum of 20 plans.

Merchants can leverage our Async Batches for the methods outlined above, which allows them to make these amendments for up to 10,000 products at a time (and up to 200,000 plans)!

Customer Portal improvements for stores using Multiple Payment Methods!

Multiple payment methods is now generally available for all merchants and we have launched a number of improvements to the customer portal experience focused on making it easier than ever for customers to make payment and shipping address updates. 

What’s new?

  • When customers make a shipping address change or payment method change to one of their subscriptions, they are prompted to make the change for all other associated subscriptions OR the single subscription.
  • If customers want to adjust the shipping address or payment method on file from the subscriptions page and they don't see the option they are looking for they are prompted to add a new one.
  • If customers have multiple payment methods on file they can bulk move subscriptions from one payment method to another.
  • Improved handling for when a customer has no payment method or shipping address on file and improved error handling overall
  • Shipping and payment information is updated separately.
  • New translations are available for any of the new out-of-the-box text, to empower merchants to create a cohesive brand voice throughout the customer portal.

Note: A new theme engine version will be released shortly.

Availability:

  • Multiple payment methods are the default for all new stores
  • Shopify Checkout: Generally available and the default for all stores
  • Migrated Shopify Checkout: Generally available and the default for all stores

New API resource! Merging Addresses on v2021-11

All merchants using the v2021-11 version of the Recharge API can now have access to 'merge address' endpoint resource. 

With this endpoint, subscriptions under separate addresses can now be merged onto a single target address in one API call making it 4X more efficient. Using the new Merge Addresses endpoint on our API, merchants / partners can merge these duplicate addresses, consolidating subscriptions under a singular address for customers where necessary. 

With this new API resource, they can

  • Choose a target address to merge other addresses onto
  • Keep or delete the source addresses
  • Optionally set a custom next charge date for the merged subscriptions

This feature is now available for all our merchants to use in Open Beta!

To try this, please visit our API reference documentation
