SOFORT Payment Method Support Added to Aria Adyen Integration (DEV-9045)

  • If you use Adyen as your payment gateway, you can now accept payments made using SOFORT. In addition, you can process refunds for those payments. SOFORT is a European online direct payment method that works via online banking.
  • You can now see SOFORT listed as an accepted payment method for Adyen when you add or edit a payment gateway.
  • To process a SOFORT payment, Aria will first convert it to SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area) Direct Debit.
  • After a SOFORT payment is processed, in the Aria application, for the applicable customer:
    • You will see SOFORT listed as the Source for the payment on the Payments tab (under Accounts > search for the account > Payments & Credits > Payments).
    • You will see Direct Debit and SOFORT listed on the Payment Methods tab (under Accounts > search for the account > Account Overview > Payment Methods).
  • Please contact your Adyen representative for more information and documentation about working with SOFORT payments.  

You can use the record_alternative_payment API to process SOFORT payments.

Cardholder- and Merchant-Initiated Transactions Implemented in Worldpay Payment Processor for Visa and MasterCard (DEV-9272)

This feature enhances Aria's Worldpay ​payment processor integration by sending flags distinguishing Cardholder Initiated Transactions​ (CIT) and Merchant Initiated Transactions (MIT)​ for Visa and MasterCard credit card transactions​​​, to comply with Visa's Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). These standards establish a set of 12 requirements for safeguarding sensitive information and controlling data access.

This feature applies to Credit Card and Tokenized Credit Ca​rd payment methods and leverages existing API ​input <recurring_processing_model_ind> and output <proc_initial_auth_txn_id>. Aria has also updated the following API’s:


Application Fixes 

  • The Aria UI now correctly displays the value set on the backend for the parameter "Auto Send Statement On Pending Invoice Approval." (TICKET-14053)
  • Aria corrected the currency label for ERN to be "Eritrean Nakfa." (TICKET-14783)
  • Order totals are now displayed on the corresponding statements for the applicable customers instead of on the wrong statements. (TICKET-15593)
  • Aria's Netsuite dispatcher now posts Plan, Service, PlanServices, RateSchedule and Item objects to Netsuite. (TICKET-16240)
  • If you use Chase Paymentech as your payment gateway, your selected Recurring Options in your Collection Group Options for that gateway are saved, as expected. (TICKET-16504)
  • Aria's Netsuite dispatcher now preserves the order of object extraction; now, older changes no longer overwrite more recent changes related to the same account during a Netsuite dispatcher run. (TICKET-16547)
  • save_paypal_bill_agreement, get_paypal_avs_status and init_paypal_bill_agreement now successfully initialize audit records via the > Configuration > Audit Logs > Web Service API. (TICKET-16679)

  • All currency codes in the Aria databases are now mapped to their corresponding numeric ISO codes in support of downstream payment processing and/or taxation vendors where possible. In some cases non-ISO currencies were entered to support specific needs for particular payment processors and/or taxation providers. (TICKET-16747)
  • Service credits created for a tax line item during a proration calculation now reflect the correct discounted tax amount. (TICKET-16766)
  • A rollover plan is now deleted from the queue upon cancelation/removal of the corresponding supplemental plan. In the Aria application, the status of the removed plan is now correctly identified as "Cancelled" on the list of Executed Plan Changes. (TICKET-16783)
  • When usage accumulation reset months is set, and a plan with a usage service whose name exceeds 75 characters is processed by the Aria Invoicer, the invoicer no longer fails with a "character string buffer too small error occurred" error. (TICKET-16886)
  • An error no longer occurs when you try to create a new chart of accounts (COA) code while adding a new service to a new plan. (TICKET-17050)
  • If a customer has multiple plans that include the same usage-based services, those services are no longer duplicated on invoices. Only the usage-based services for which usage was recorded appear on the invoices, as expected. (TICKET-17074)

API Features 

Process SOFORT Payments with Adyen (DEV-9045)

  • If you use Adyen as your payment gateway, you can now accept payments made using SOFORT (pay_method 36). SOFORT is a European online direct payment method that works via online banking.
  • To complete a SOFORT payment, your customers will need to enter their bank details on the SOFORT website.
  • To process payments made using SOFORT with Adyen, after your customer enters bank details on the SOFORT website, pass values into these new inputs added to the record_alternative_payment API:
    • payment_auth_received;
    • proc_payment_method_id.
  • Please contact your Adyen representative for more information and documentation about working with SOFORT payments.  

After a SOFORT payment is processed, you will see the payment details in the Aria application.


API Fixes 

  • An unexpected error is no longer thrown when updating an account's status from "Active Non-Billable" to "Active" using update_acct_complete when the client parameter setting Enable Single Line Upgrade is set to "True", and no plan units are passed. This issue has been resolved by stopping the single line upgrade attempt by considering the current plan units as new units when new units is not passed. (TICKET-16085)
  • Empty spaces in the <is_batch_running> output parameter are no longer being returned in get_virtual_datetime. The data-type has been altered such that <is_batch_running> will return only a "Y" or "N" without empty spaces in the JSON response. (TICKET-16386)
  • These 2 fixes have been implemented:

    • When you call the replace_supp_plan API and a prorated invoice is generated for the newly assigned supplemental (supp) plan, the customer is billed for any usage charges associated with the new plan, as expected.

    • When you use the assign_supp_plan API to assign a supplemental (supp) plan with a usage-based service and you pass in an <alt_proration_start_date>, the usage is now billed as of your specified <alt_proration_start_date> instead of the plan start date.
      (TICKET-16779)

  • The date query strings in get_invoice_information, and get_all_invoice_information have been altered to search and return all objects reflecting just the date match. Previously, when a user entered a date, the code automatically assigned a timestamp of midnight as part of the search query. (TICKET-16786)
  • If a customer has multiple plans that include the same usage-based services, those services are no longer duplicated on invoices. Only the usage-based services for which usage was recorded appear on the invoices, as expected. (TICKET-17074)
