[Release Notes] Subscriptions

Features 

We have listened to your feedback and implemented new features for MobilePay Subscriptions API. From now on, your integration using OpenID Connect can utilise the features listed below.

Push Notifications
  • Merchant can now set if the end user should be able to manage push notifications for an agreement or not. If the merchant choses so, then it is not displayed when signing new agreement and when browsing agreement information. disable_notification_management is not required, and the default value is 'false'. 
  • Value: Merchant can be more in control of user engagement
Frequency
  • Merchant can now set the frequency: daily, weekly, or flexible. 
  • Value: The user gets a more flexibel payment experience. The merchant can elevate further their customers' expectations for simple and seamless payments
Agreement retention
  • Merchant can now set retention_period_hours, i.e. for how long the subscriptions agreement cannot be cancelled by the user, after the end-customer accepted the agreement. This is possible to do for up to 24 hours.
  • Value: Before the retention period has passed, then the customer will not be able to cancel an agreement.
DueDate of Subscriptions Payments
  • Subscription payment 8 days rule validation on payment creation is changed to 1 day. The due date must be at least 1 day in the future, otherwise the Subscription Payment will be declined.
  • Value: The customer experiences flexibles ways of being charged.
One-off without confirmation
  • Merchant can send one-off payment, which MobilePay will attempt to automatically reserve, without user’s confirmation.
  • Value: The customer does not need to swipe and the payment experience is seamless
Notification about future payments
  • Merchants also has the possibility to notify end users about “future payments” from 8 days to 1 day before due date. On due date all end users receive a receipt for the payment
  • Value: Merchant can be more in control of user engagement
Api differences 

To provide a fluent transition, both base paths have been available. However, by end of 2019, we will retire Subscriptions (Mutual SSL) 2.0.11  

We have deprecated Subscriptions (Mutual SSL) 2.0.11.We are not going to release new functionality to those, who are using Mutual SSL. The features are available for those, who have integrated using OpenID Connect. Read more about OpenID Connect here
