FastSpring's newest release offers support for new currencies, changes to the credit card expiration notification, improvements to the abandoned order notification, and more!
Support for New Currencies
In addition to the 17 currencies already supported, FastSpring now supports the Russian Ruble for WebMoney, Visa, Mastercard, and American Express, as well as the Czech Republic Koruna for Visa, Mastercard, and American Express. In addition, the currency abbreviation for the Swedish Krona is now properly set to kr. For a list of our other supported currencies or to learn how to enable these new currencies, see Currency Settings.
Credit Card Expiration Notification
The credit card expiration notification, which is sent out when our system detects a customer's credit card expires, is now automatically translated in Japanese.
When a customer's credit card is set to expire before the next renewal date, the Subscription Reminder email, which is automatically sent for subscriptions with a period of six months or more, now contains information about the credit card expiring, and the credit card expiration notification email is not sent. The combined notification email is shown to the right.
Abandoned Order Notification
When an abandoned order notification is set up in your FastSpring store, in addition to capturing email addresses of abandoned potential customers and sending them to your third-party mailing list for remarketing purposes to turn potential customers into actual customers, the products that were in the customers' cart can now also be sent. For information on setting up an abandoned order notification with MailChimp, see Capture Email Addresses from Abandoned Carts for Remarketing.
Renaming of "contents" Notification Parameter
The parameter named "contents" in notifications can now be renamed to better support interaction with APIs that require xml input.
New Subscription Period Length
In addition to our current subscription period lengths, which include 30, 45, 60, and 90 days, 1, 2, 4, 8, and 12 weeks, 1, 2, and 6 months, and 1 and 2 years, a period length of 3 years can now be set on subscription products for the regular period length or a trial (first period only) length.
Addition to File Fulfillment User Interface
When adding a File Fulfillment to a product and choosing to use an Existing File that you have previously uploaded, you can now select the File Created Time Frame to show those files uploaded in the last 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, or all files.
Accounting Banking Information Changes
When entering information for the way in which FastSpring distributes money to you, a selection can be made for your business' country and a selection can be made for your bank's country.
Bug Fixes in this Release
For Reseller Partner Account Stores, the error message displayed when logging in as a reseller and clicking on the Support link no longer displays, and instead, the reseller now properly sees FastSpring customer support information.
