Xero Integration: Component Quantities Shown on Invoice

Thanks to feedback from our customers, we are very excited to announce an enhancement to invoicing with our native Xero integration! The invoices produced out of Xero are now updated to align with the Chargify invoice quantity per each specific component your customer is billed on. Previously, the quantity was set to 1 with the total amount of the component noted in the unit price attribute. The actual quantity was only available in the line item description. This added functionality improves the ability to view and track in Xero the components sold to your customers.

Reactivate Subscriptions with Prepayments and Service Credits

Sometimes customer subscriptions need to be reinstated after being cancelled. Instead of creating a brand new subscription, our reactivation functionality allows you to reinstate a subscription with the following options: 

  • 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. 

When this option is selected, any Service Credits and Prepayments on the subscription will be applied to the reactivation charge before attempting to use the customers' payment profile.

Component Allocation History in Salesforce

Mirroring as much of your customers' subscription information in Chargify to your Salesforce environment is vital to creating efficiencies amongst your Sales and Customer Success Teams. After hearing from many of our customers currently leveraging our native integration, we are excited to share an exciting new feature in Salesforce! 

You can now view historical and current allocation of all components and their respective usage for each customers' subscription. This added visibility in Salesforce gives your team faster response times to take action and assist customers, preventing the need to look up component allocations in Chargify.

Updating Invoices with Customer Record Changes

Sending an invoice with incorrect customer information causes pain for both your end-customer and your team through added confusion, delays in payment, and possible brand damage. With Chargify, you never have to send an invoice with outdated customer information due to our latest enhancements to invoices in the UI!
 
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. If your customer information has been changed, there is a clickable link for you to select so you can review the changes we detected and apply them to the invoice.

Salesforce Ad-hoc Invoice Creation

Having your sales team work in a platform they're most comfortable in without having to learn other systems (especially billing) can be a key component to creating efficiencies within the organization. At Chargify, our native Salesforce integration is set out to solve the swivel-chair movement between CRM and billing for your customer-facing teams. Due to recent feedback from our customers, we are very excited to announce a brand new feature for our Salesforce integration! 

To better enable your sales team to sell specialized deals, we have now added the ability to create ad-hoc or one-time invoices from Salesforce. These one-time invoices can have custom line item pricing as well as unique invoice billing and shipping addresses for added flexibility. Any time an invoice is created in Salesforce, it will automatically be synced over to Chargify.

Proforma Invoices for Subscription Groups

Proforma invoices are an easy way to provide your customers with a preview of the upcoming charges and/or renewal of their subscription(s). After receiving valuable feedback from our users of proforma, we are happy to announce the extension of this functionality to Subscription Groups. 

You can now view and generate a proforma invoice prior to a group's next billing period, keeping you and the customer up-to-date on all of their consolidated subscriptions.

Subscription Group Enhancements

Simplifying your customers billing is a necessary step in providing a delightful experience with your product. At Chargify, we love knowing our Subscriptions Group functionality provides an easy way to bill your customers when they have multiple subscriptions by consolidating invoices. We are excited to share a few enhancements to Subscription Groups, all thanks to the valuable feedback we have received from our customers! 

Chargify users will now be able to manage service credits and prepayments on the subscription group level, instead of the individual level. Additionally, users can now update the group payers payment profile and cancel an entire subscription group with one action. We hope this will save you time and energy in managing your customers' multiple subscriptions.
