  • Changes in Refund set-up

    From now on, we will reject a refund if a PaymentPoint balance will become negative because we want to avoid the refund exceeding the available Payment Point balance.  We recommend that the Merchant aligns their internal processes, in case the refund due to insufficient funds on payment point was rejected so that the merchant can take needed measures.

  • [Release Notes] - Subscriptions API - agreement cancellation redirect Url.

    Companies that want to offer their customers alternative options for canceling their payment agreement can now ensure that a redirect is made to the company's website, where they can offer various alternative retention optionsFor new agreements, use endpoint POST /api/providers/{providerId}/agreements with  cancel-redirect link. A new link allows agreement to be cancelled in merchant own environmnet. Merchant should ensure easy access to information and support. By making it possible for customers to cancel the agreement in merchant own environment, you can get more control of your possible leaving customers. If cancel-redirect is used, then MobilePay redirects customer to merchant environment, and thus making Canceling funcionality not available for the user in the app.

    We have listened to your feedback. ConsumerName validation (Levenstein rule) has been removed from InvoiceDirect valication rules. Merchants reported, that the Levenstein rule could cause issues for merchants, if/when their customers did not provide their correct full name. This resulted in the Invoice failing on the validation.
