Invoicing and Invoice Settlement

General availability of Invoice Settlement

The Invoice Settlement feature is now generally available for all Zuora customers, allowing you to seamlessly settle invoices in three approaches: credit and debit memos, unapplied payments, and invoice item settlements. 

See Invoice Settlement for more information.

Orders and Subscriptions

Links for the Mass Order Entry feature removed from the Orders UI

As the Mass Order Entry feature is not supported in Orders (or Order Harmonization), the following links have been removed from the Orders UI for consistency:

  • Mass Order Entry Template link on the All Subscriptions page
  • Export Mass Order Entry link on the All Subscriptions page
  • Export Orders link on both the All Subscriptions and All Amendments pages


Stripe gateway integration now supports OAuth 2.0 authentication

The Stripe gateway integration v1 and v2 in Zuora now support OAuth 2.0 authentication. You can create an access token in Zuora Payments Settings and use it as the credential to configure a Stripe gateway instance. 

  • For new Stripe gateway instances, you must use the created access token as the credential.
  • For existing Stripe gateway instances, the previously stored Secret Key and Publishable Key credentials can continue to work, but you cannot update them anymore. We also provide you with the flexibility to switch to the OAuth authentication mode at any time.

See the following articles for more information:


Thousands separators removed from numeric fields in CSV report results

When you export report results as a CSV file, numeric fields now do not include thousands separators. Previously, numeric fields included thousands separators.

This change ensures consistency between CSV files exported from Reporting, Data Sources, and Data Query.

If you would like numeric fields to include thousands separators, submit a request at Zuora Global Support and ask to enable formatting of numeric fields in Reporting exports.
