Having an effective dunning strategy can help prevent churn and is important in resolving customer's failed payments swiftly.

Today we are excited to announce a new feature added to our dunning functionality. Introducing mid-period component dunning!

New Filter Options via API for Invoicing

Last month we released a new endpoint to send invoices via API to mimic the behavior of the "Send Invoice" button within the UI. This endpoint enables you to programmatically deliver ad-hoc invoices as well as the re-send of auto-generated invoices, thus giving you control of when to send out an invoice. 

As we continue adding new API endpoints, we are excited to announce new filter options on exposed event types on an invoice. You can now filter for multiple event types on an invoice (e.g. issue_invoice, apply_credit_note, refund_invoice) using a comma separated list. Previously, you were able to filter by only 1 invoice event.

Reactivate Subscriptions with Prepayments and Service Credits

  • Start a New Billing Period
  • Resume Billing Period
  • Collect Any Outstanding Balances 
  • Include Trialing Period 

In addition to those listed above, we are excited to announce that our Product Team has added new options for you to adjust how this reactivation gets paid by allowing for Service Credits and Prepayments to be selected.

As you produce new invoices in-app, you will now see an indicator on every open invoice letting you know if the customer information has changed since the invoice was issued.
