New Reimbursement API launched in the US! 🇺🇸

 

New

 

 

We are excited to announce that our new Reimbursement API is now available in the US with Visa© and Mastercard©.

The Reimbursement API allows you to improve the customer experience by reimbursing cash directly onto linked cards, eliminating the need for you to handle other personal identifiable data, such as bank account.

How can you start using Reimbursement?

  • Current US accounts will be prompted in the Fidel Dashboard to activate the Reimbursement product using the latest API version 2021-09-28. You can read more information on the new version release here. reimbursement-activation.gif

  • New US accounts will already be using the new API version and no action is required.

📲New Fidel iOS SDK💫

 

Improvement

 

 

We've just released a new version for the Fidel iOS SDK. v1.8.5 comes with support for Swift v5.4, can now be run in Simulators on the new M1 machines, and uses the new XCFramework code distribution framework from Apple. We enabled library evolution, this should make it more resilient and less likely to break with each new Swift release. If you run into any issues with the new Swift release, reach out on the community forum!

🖥The Fidel Dashboard has a new way to add brands! 🖼

 

New

 

 

You can now search Fidel’s existing database of Brands when adding Brands to your Program on the Fidel Dashboard. If your desired Brand is not on our list, you can create a new one. We're hard at work on making it easier to onboard new Brands and Locations - this is just the first step. Stay tuned!

📢We've added support for Amex Approval Codes📧

 

New

 

 

We've added support for Amex Approval Codes to our transactions. When you receive a transaction on a webhook, or when you GET a transaction via the API, you will now have an amexApprovalCode property on the transaction identifiers object.

    "identifiers": {
        "amexApprovalCode": "123456",
        "mastercardAuthCode": null,
        "mastercardRefNumber": null,
        "mastercardTransactionSequenceNumber": null,
        "MID": "123456789",
        "visaAuthCode": null
    }

📢Amex is now enabled by default in the US🇺🇸

 

New

 

 

🎉With the addition of Amex enabled by default for new US accounts, all new accounts should now have Amex enabled by default for every location!🎊

You can try this out by logging into your account on the new Fidel Dashboard and create a test location in one of your test programs!

📢We've added the ability to sync a program via the API🛠

 

New

 

 

You can now start the Location sync process programmatically by calling the Update Program endpoint of our API.

You'll need to add a body parameter of { "status" : "syncing" } to start the process. Because syncing only works for live programs, you'll need to use the programId of a live program, and your live API key, when you call the API endpoint.|

curl -X PATCH https://api.fidel.uk/v1/programs/1ed2d0a4-b778-4ea4-b991-b5ede2d4eeaa \
  -H 'content-type: application/json' \
  -H 'fidel-key: sk_live_b2e6a6ab-1a11-47ec-831c-81c2b23fd5b2' \
  -d '{
    "status": "syncing"
  }'

🧪We've added demo data to new test accounts👤

 

New

 

 

Creating your first test Transaction in the Fidel Dashboard just became easier. All new Fidel accounts now come with all the test data setup you need to create a transaction:

  • A "Demo Program"
  • A "Simple Coffee" Brand
  • 3 UK Locations
  • 1 Visa Card registered
  • 1 Auth Transaction

The "Demo Program" also comes with the new Program properties we added:

  • icon - Emoji to associate with the Program. Uses the :emoji-name: format. Accepts between 4 and 200 characters. The demo data is :wave: 👋.
  • iconBackground - Background color for the program icon. Accepts a HEX CSS string, like #333333. The demo data is #fedcd7.

📢 We’ve added a new webhook event, for location sync statuses 🛍

 

New

 

 

A location.status event is triggered when there are updates from a card network for a Location in a Program.

In the test environment, this webhook triggers three times for each location upon creating a Location, once for each card scheme, with a location.active event.

In the live environment, this would trigger whenever a location has synced successfully for a card scheme, with a location.active event. Or whenever a location has failed to sync for a card scheme, with a location.failed event.

You can use the Fidel Dashboard or the Webhooks API to register your webhook URL with the new location.status event.

curl -X POST \
  https://api.fidel.uk/v1/programs/06471dbe-a3c7-429e-8a18-16dc97e5cf35/hooks \
  -H 'content-type: application/json' \
  -H 'fidel-key: sk_test_50ea90b6-2a3b-4a56-814d-1bc592ba4d63' \
  -d '{
    "event": "location.status",
    "url": "https://example.com/location-webhook"
  }'
