Enhanced UI for Customer and Organization Field Displays

Having options for detailing your customer records enables you to align the information in Chargify with how you manage your business. We know from our own customers, that some manage their business relationships on an individual contact level, while others manage via the organization level. 

Chargify now differentiates your customers as an organization or an individual contact. If you have populated the organization field for any customer, this information is now prominently displayed in many locations, including: 
  • Subscription Index
  • Subscription Record
  • Customer Index
  • Customer Record
If you do not use the Organization field in Chargify, the contact on the customer record will continue to be displayed. For more information on these changes, see our documentation here>

Create One-Off Invoice via the API

We are excited to continually provide you new API endpoints that surface our core functionality outside of our UI, allowing for full flexibility of how you bill your customers. Our latest API endpoint is creating ad-hoc invoices for one-off services or products, separate from your recurring charges. With these one-off invoices you can directly feed in everything that will be charged including the price, description and item being sold and you can set these invoices to be paid either by remittance or automatic payment collections.  They can have multiple line items, a custom memo, and all other basic attributes you get when you create the one-time invoice in the UI.

For more information on how to create a one-off invoice via the API, see our documentation here>

Subscription Migration Preview Available via the API

As customers upgrade or change their subscriptions with you, providing a preview of their updated charges is a great way to mitigate surprises and keep customers happy! Chargify's latest API enhancement enables you to do just that. The 'Preview Migration' API call allows you to pull the prorated new charge amount based on a specified date (within the current billing period). Simply pass in the future date and get the corresponding prorated adjustment, charge, payment and credit applied values.

For more information on product migrations via the API, see our API documentation here>

NetSuite Integration Enhancements

To make sure you continue to have the data you need where you need it most, we continue to make investments in our NetSuite integration. These enhancements include moving onto the latest released NetSuite API (20.1), enabling several functionality enhancements to streamline your business processes. 

Our latest enhancements include the ability to use custom forms in addition to the out-of-the-box forms for creating sales orders. You can also now choose the specific bank account and specific AR accounts used by the integration when recording refunds. 

In addition, NetSuite Payment Instrument functionality is now available. These latest enhancements add specific granularity and control as you sync data back and forth between NetSuite and Chargify.

A/R Dashboard and Export Updates

It is now possible to filter based on invoice status within the Accounts Receivable Dashboard. This filter is especially useful when working with invoices that are past due or in a 'Collections' status. All filters have also been moved to the top of the dashboard and now filter the results across the entire dashboard.

Refunds and service credits are also now included in the Accounts Receivable Export, fully rounding out the content to include a wholistic view of open A/R.

For more information on the A/R Dashboard and Export, please see our documentation here >

Invoice Amount in Subscription Export

The most recent amount invoiced has now been added to the Subscription report to provide even more detail on the current state of the Subscription at the time of export. This field represents the total amount billed, in cents, of the most recent recurring invoice (does not include mid-period probation invoices). It does not include invoices in a pending status or invoices which have been voided.
