We've fixed an issue with the Pricing API which caused prices to be returned in USD for some buyers outside of the United States, unless the country was explicitly given. This issue is now resolved and we’ve taken steps to prevent it from happening again. If you have any questions, please get in touch.

🇮🇸 Charging Sales Tax in Iceland

🛒 We've started rolling out our new checkout
We’ve started to rollout our new checkout today! The new checkout will allow us to provide you with new ways to increase conversions and average order value.
We're making the new checkout available to our sellers gradually via an A/B test with the old one, so you may see it appear on your website.

🔠 Moving On to our New Checkout A/B Testing Campaign
We're stopping a long-running A/B test of our checkout to start our biggest A/B test yet, focusing on gradually introducing the new checkout we've building from the ground up.
Aside from a few UX improvements along the way, the main objective is to use more modern technologies, making it quicker and easier to add new features in the future.
Over the next few months, we’ll be starting a gradual rollout of an experiment which tests our new checkout against the existing one to ensure a smooth transition.
We'll then begin focusing on improving it, primarily looking at improving conversion rate and average order value to grow your revenue!
To learn more about this change and our plans for the checkout, read our announcement.
🎉 Order Processing is back to normal
We have resolved the order processing slowdown that started earlier today.
New orders are processed straight away as usual. The queue of orders that were slowed down has now been cleared up.
Thank you for your patience!
🚨 Currently experiencing an order processing slowdown
We are currently experiencing issues with order processing which affect a large number of sellers.
Orders are correctly created and payments are collected, which means this does not impact your revenue.
However the processing of these orders, which include creating licenses and sending confirmation emails to buyers is greatly slowed down. Our post-checkout API, which can be used to display order confirmation details open your website, will not be able to return processed order information in a timely manner. None of the subscription webhooks will be fired.
We are actively working with absolute priority on solving the issue and clearing the queue of orders to process, so that your buyers receive their license or purchase as soon as possible. We will update you as soon as this is resolved.
