BlueSnap Product Updates V1.39
Introducing new features and improvements aimed to boost your business & grow revenues
This release introduces the following new features:
As this feature is being rolled out gradually over the next few weeks, you may not initially see the
messages on the BuyNow page on the date of the release.
With all the fraud attempts and misuse of personal information including payment details, it is to no surprise
that Visa and MasterCard have issued some new regulations.
Plimus will automatically add relevant messaging to the BuyNow pages, to ensure that Shoppers understand
their payment details and options for future purchases.
Adding these notices and disclaimers, gives customers the extra confidence when making a purchase.
The following changes have been adapted for Shoppers consent of allowing the Seller to use payment
information for future purchases or services:
If Shopper changes their mind regarding the consent of the disclaimer, can they update the settings?
Yes, if the disclaimer appeared in the BuyNow, the Shopper can later manage the settings
in the?Shopper Control Panel.
In order to help your Shoppers better manage their subscriptions, we have now enhanced the
payment update feature. Before Shoppers could easily change their payment details per subscription,
but now they can change the payment details for all subscriptions linked to the same payment
method in just one step.
When your Shoppers login to the?Shopper Control Panel?and update the payment method for a single
active subscription, they will see a new window displaying all their active subscriptions linked to the same
payment method of the subscription that was just updated.
The Shopper can choose:
Tip: Did you know that you can coordinate the same look and feel of the Shopper Control Panel
with your company site? By using the same design, you expose a unified image to your Shoppers.
To do this, go to Shopper Experience > Shopper Panel Settings and select your Shopper Control Panel design.
Ukash, a form of electronic money can be used to pay for items or services over the internet,
load money to your eWallet or used as a credit card. You do not need a bank account or credit card,
just cash to purchase the Ukash voucher at your local shop. The value of the voucher is worth the
amount you paid. It is supported in over 40 countries.
It has developed a strong following with younger shoppers or those that prefer not to subject their
personal data online.
The Ukash voucher contains a 19 digit Ukash code to be typed along with the amount when
selecting the payment method Ukash. If the whole amount is not used up, a change voucher
code is sent to the Shopper containing the remaining amount on the voucher. This change voucher
is to be used in the same way as the Ukash voucher.
The following countries support Ukash:
The Ukash payment option can be activated by accessing your Account -> Optional BuyNow Settings page.
Tip: If you have traffic in one of the countries listed, add the Ukash logo to your site to show your shoppers
that you now support this popular payment method.
Offline payments are popular among those that prefer to stick to more traditional methods, and those
that question the security of online payments.
Even those that use offline payment methods prefer to pay in their local currency. Offering your customers
this option is known to increase conversion. This enhancement now offers Shoppers to use the various offline
methods and pay in their local currency.
The various offline methods include phone, fax, mail, check, and money order.
To support the method of payments as mentioned above, you must verify that the specified
payment method is set to be displayed in your account settings. This can be found by
clicking?Optional BuyNow Settings?from the?Shopper Experience?dropdown.
Keeping Shoppers engaged even after their credit card update has failed is definitely a priority.
The new parameter?failureUrl?can now be passed in the request, when a customer is sent to update
a payment method via the Shopper Control Panel.
If authorization is declined, the customer will be redirected to the provided failure URL. For example,
you might want to redirect your customer to a support or contact page, or a page containing
