Billing and Payments

Billing Setting for Inclusive Tax Calculation

You can now set the tax rounding rule to calculate taxes for the inclusive tax mode. You can either round the net amount or the tax amount in the tax calculation. The tax amount might be different based on two different rounding rules.

To access this feature, click your username at the top right and navigate to Billing > Define Billing Rules > Zuora Tax rounding rule for inclusive tax calculation. By default, the Rounding Net Amount rule is used in the inclusive tax calculation. 

See Zuora Tax rounding rule for inclusive tax calculation for more information.

New Merge Fields for Invoices

The TaxSummary.AmountWithoutTax and TaxItem.AmountWithoutTax merge fields are now available on invoice templates. You can include these merge fields on invoices to display the subtotal of all charges without taxes in tax related tables. This enhancement gives you more flexibility in summarizing tax information on invoices.

See Merge Fields for Invoices for more information.

Payment

Security Enhancements in Payment Pages 2.0

For tighter security around Payment Pages 2.0, we added additional security checks.

Prevent Multiple Renderings with One Signature

Now you can render a Payment Page only once with one generated signature. You need to re-generate a signature if you want to re-render a Payment Page in callback code such as in the Inline Button Outside mode. If you attempt to re-render the page with a used signature, an error will be displayed on the Payment Page. 

Limit on Number of Payment Page Submissions

A new tenant level limit on the maximum number of Payment Page submissions is implemented. When an end user hits this threshold by repeatedly submitting incorrect information on the Payment Page, they will see the error message and will be blocked from further submission. When the submission limit is reached, you need to provide your end users a way to re-render the page, which requires a regeneration of a signature.

Contact Zuora Global Support if you want to increase the tenant level threshold for submitting Payment Pages.

Generate a New Signature for Each Direct POST Request

When the security checks are enabled in your tenant, you need to generate a new signature for each of Direct POST request that is sent to Zuora, or the security checks will block your requests.

Refer to Implement Payment Pages 2.0 via Direct POST for detail information about Payment Pages 2.0 via Direct Post.

Enable the New Security Checks

By default, the new security checks mentioned in this section are disabled. 

To enable the security checks, first go through the following checklist to set up the Payment Page, and contact Zuora Global Support to enable the setting or adjust the limits.

  1. Generate a signature for each Payment Page render.
  2. Generate a signature in your callback code before re-rendering a Payment Page when a previous submission fails.
  3. Generate a signature for each Direct POST request.
  4. Customize the error message for the Attempt_Exceed_Limitation error code. See Error Handling for Payment Pages 2.0 for the steps.
  5. Provide a way for end users to re-render the Payment Page when they hit the limits.

Platform

A New Tenant Permission to Prevent Deleted Products Synced To Salesforce

When you sync product catalog from Zuora to Salesforce, by default, the deleted products in your Zuora product catalog are synchronized to Salesforce. Starting in this release, you have an option to skip deleted products in product catalog syncs.

Contact Zuora Global Support to enable the tenant permission not to synchronize deleted products to Salesforce.
