Avalara Integration Accounting Updates

You can now choose how to sync over invoices to your Avalara account using the Chargify to Avalara integration. When configuring your Avalara account in Chargify, you have the option of posting documents to Avalara, as well as choosing how those documents are sent. The two options available are:
  • Set open invoices as 'Uncommitted' in Avalara, supporting Cash Based Accounting practices
  • Set open invoices as 'Committed' in Avalara, supporting Accrual Based Accounting practices

This flexibility allows you to follow either Cash Basis or Accrual Basis accounting principals through our Chargify to Avalara integration. To turn this on for your environment, reach out to your Customer Success Manager or the Chargify Support team.

API Endpoints Supporting Subscription Groups

As Chargify continues to evolve the way you can manage subscription groups,  new API endpoints have been added that give you the option to easily navigate and view:

  • Groups 
  • Members of the groups
  • Balances of group accounts

Cancellation and reactivation of the entire group can happen through a single API call. In addition, groups can now have their own service credits and prepayments, apart from individual member subscriptions. 

For more information on our API endpoints supporting subscription groups, see our documentation here >

Salesforce Integration - Data Validation Report

A new report has been added to our Salesforce integration allowing you to map out which records will be created or matched before you integrate your Chargify environment with your Salesforce environment. This new Data Validation Report can be run before the integration to avoid any hiccups prior to committing to a permanent change. The records included in the report for matching are the following:  

  • Customer
  • Products
  • Components
  • Coupons

For more information on this report see our Salesforce documentation here>

Multi-Currency Functionality Now Generally Available

The multi-currency functionality originally announced in May is now generally available and available for all Chargify customers. As a reminder, this change greatly reduces the overhead you experience from selling internationally!

With Chargify’s multi-currency functionality you simply specify what currencies are available on each of your sites, configure your pricing, and allow your customers to sign up for products and services in those currencies. No more managing multiple sites or multiple product offerings (as required by some billing systems) just to achieve multiple currency support.

For more information on how multi-currency works, see our documentation >

New A/R Aging Report

Tracking your A/R aging can be difficult without the right tools. To cut down the time you spend tracking and increase your ability to understand and take action, Chargify has introduced a new A/R Aging Report as an extension of the A/R Dashboard. This report, formatted as a .csv export, provides a complete list of customers, subscriptions, and invoices in an aging view so you can easily understand your days sales outstanding and repeat offenders. To round out your A/R view, this report also include all outstanding service credits and prepayments providing you with all obligations data in a single location.

If you are already using the A/R Dashboard, this report is already available to you. If not, gain access to the A/R Dashboard by contacting your Customer Success Manager or Chargify Support.

To understand more about the new A/R Aging Report, see our documentation >
