Invoicing and Tax
Flexible Billing Attributes feature generally available
The Flexible Billing Attributes feature is now generally available. If you want to access this feature, submit a request at Zuora Global Support.
This feature provides you the flexibility to manage billing, taxation, and payment at a more granular level other than the account level.
- Flexible subscription management provides you the capability to have different bill-to contacts, sold-to contacts, payment terms, invoice templates, and sequence sets for subscriptions.
- Flexible invoicing provides you the capability to bill subscriptions according to the same billing attributes.
Sold To Contact available at subscription level through Zuora UI
When creating a subscription through the Zuora UI, you can now specify a sold-to contact in the Sold To Contact field in the Billing and Payment section. Additionally, you can view related contact information from the Sold To field in the Billing & Payment subsection of the Basic Information section on the subscription details page.
The Flexible Billing Attributes feature now provides you the capability to have different sold-to contacts for subscriptions through the Zuora UI, while REST API support has been available since the 2023.04.R1 release in April. Therefore, you can sell products and services with different tax addresses for different subscriptions in the same order.
Orders and Subscriptions
Support for viewing offer information on subscription details page
Previously, to retrieve information about the offers and the included product rate plans and charges after adding offers to subscriptions through the Create an order API operation, you could only view the information through API operations, for example, Retrieve a subscription by key.
You can now view the information on the subscription details pages.
- If the Enable New Zuora Experience is checked in Profile > Manage Your Profile, the information about the offers, nested product rate plans, and charges is displayed in the Included Products > Offers section. For more information, see View details of subscriptions through the reinvented UI.
- If the Enable New Zuora Experience is unchecked, the information about the nested product rate plans and charges is displayed in the Product & Charges section. For more information, see View subscriptions.
Metrics enhancements on reinvented subscription details page
We have enhanced metrics sections on the reinvented subscription details page as follows:
- Add a new CMRR section.
- Rename the Current MRR section to TODAY'S MRR.
- Display Gross and Net values in the TCV, TODAY'S MRR, and ENDING MRR sections, and only display Gross value in the CMRR section.
For more information, see View details of subscriptions through the reinvented UI.
The Zuora Payments features and enhancements will be deployed to Production environments no earlier than 8 June 2023.

Zuora Central Platform
Zuora Central Platform has only internal enhancements and resolved issues in this release.
For the detailed API documentation, see API Reference.
For a summary of REST API updates and documentation updates in the Zuora API Reference, see 2023 API Changelog.
HTTP response status code change for the Delete action and DELETE calls to CRUD operations
In line with REST API best practices, we have introduced an HTTP status code change to the following operations:
- The DELETE calls made to CRUD operations ( operations with the
/v1/object/*endpoint), such as CRUD: Delete a contact
- The Delete action
If you use the preceding operations to delete an object with an invalid ID, the 200 HTTP status code is now returned because the result of getting an object deleted has been achieved and DELETE calls should be idempotent by nature.
Previously, the 400 HTTP response code was returned for this case.
The change is currently live in Sandbox and Central Sandbox environments. It will be deployed to Production environments no earlier than 3 June 2023.
From 2022.09.R1, the Quickstart API is available to you if you have the Orders (or Order Harmonization) and Invoice Settlement features enabled in your tenant. The QuickstartAPI allows new integrators to swiftly integrate with Zuora, and it supports essential business use cases.
For the detailed Quickstart API documentation, see Quickstart API Reference.
