Integration transparency in Solidgate HUB
We understand that updating the Payment Form error-free may be challenging. Starting in July, you can view all initialization and update requests in the HUB, providing you with instant status insight. This update ensures you can check requests and avoid errors for an enjoyable payment experience.
Product & Price API for Subscriptions
In case you missed our previous update, the enhanced Product and Price functionality allows you to create and manage subscription products and prices effortlessly. This upgrade empowers you to offer your products with more customization options like multiple currencies, flexible trials and billing periods, as well as dynamic pricing. Learn more in the documentation.
Safer payments with a unique card identifier
To further enhance your anti-fraud protection mechanisms, we’ve added the unique identifier of the user’s bank card (card_id) to payment request responses. This enhancement allows you to uniquely associate users with the cards they use across various transaction types. Learn more in our API reference.
The card_id parameter has been added to payment request responses to:
- transaction:card object
- payment_source:card object
Expanded sandbox scenarios
We’ve expanded the Failed payment scenarios list for testing integration with Solidgate.
If your business operates with a 2-step payment flow (where you first hold funds on the user’s card and then debit funds from it), you can use our test card data to simulate recurring-auth transaction types and get failed payment results. This feature empowers you to automate more payment scenarios, gain better control over your business flows with payments, and identify areas for improvement.
If you plan to switch your business from a 1-step to a 2-step payment flow, you can also utilize test card data to simulate different scenarios, including the recurring-auth transaction type with a failed result. This allows you to test and optimize your payment processes before implementing them in a live environment.
Subscription Pause in the HUB
Last month, we introduced you to the new Subscription Pause feature, allowing your customers to suspend their subscription instead of canceling it. This option is now available not only through our API but also via HUB, our powerful web interface. Learn more about this feature in our payment guide.
Update to brasil_cpf field format
To facilitate more payments from Brazil and support your business in reaching a broader audience, we’ve expanded the list of possible values for the field.
The CPF (Cadastro de Pessoas Físicas) number is attributed to taxpayers by the Federal Revenue of Brazil. The number consists of an 11-digit format: 000.000.000-00, where the last two digits are check digits generated through an arithmetic operation on the first nine digits.
From now on, Solidgate accepts both number variations, allowing you to use either the hyphenated format (e.g., 450.539.758-09) or the numerical-only format (e.g., 45053975809) when processing payments. This flexibility makes conducting transactions, complying with local regulations, and serving your Brazilian customers easier.
