🛠 Improvements to webhook processing

 

Improvement

  

Today we finalized improvements to our webhook processing system that allows us to support more than one URL for your Paddle events. This is particularly useful for those working with 3rd party integrations such as affiliate platforms and analytics providers.

For more information on Paddle's webhooks, see this guide.

If you have any questions please get in touch with our team at sellers@paddle.com or via the support icon in the Paddle dashboard.

🏎 Improved checkout load time

 

Improvement

  

In order to offer a frictionless checkout experience, we have recently completed optimization work to make the Paddle Checkout more performant.

To help you convert more sales and achieve revenue growth, we have reconfigured the way in which the Checkout is created. In doing so, your customers will be able to interact with your checkout a lot sooner than they previously could. We have already seen time to receive first byte reduce from 2s to 0.99s and we are continuing to monitor key performance metrics off the back of this release.

We have identified even more opportunities to make the checkout even faster and will be updating you on an ongoing basis.

Please email sellers@paddle.com if you have any questions.

🍎 New V4.3 Mac SDK

 

Announcement

  

We’ve just released a new version of our Mac SDK.🎉

This release contains bugs fixes and much-needed improvements which are listed below:

  • Switched to WKWebView.
  • Removed all semantic warnings.
  • Added activation details (allowed_uses, times_used) to activation calls. This is now on both the activation and verification calls.
  • Added error handling on modified properties on the PADProduct object.
  • Silent activation is now correctly returning errors when used in Swift.
  • The Checkout is now returning PADCheckoutSlowOrderProcessing state in the completion block for all slow processing orders.
  • License verification improvements:
    • Added further checks to obtain the correct machine UUID/MAC address, to help prevent activation issues for certain edge cases.
    • Added a machine UUID error (-127 “Identifier doesn't match activation”) for when license verification fails due to the UUID being different from the activation one. This is to help identify more easily when users are trying to activate it on a new machine after migrating to a new one or to make it easy to identify edge cases where the machine’s UUID keeps changing.
    • Added a custom UUID delegate method to allow customization of the user’s machine identifier.

You can head here to download the latest release of our Mac SDK.
