Product Update - March, 2021

Table of contents

This month, we’ve been working to bring new possibilities for payment use cases: new Stripe flow actions to handle customers and taxes, and new payment options to link information to your existing Stripe customers. We’ve also heard your requests and we’ve released JavaScript support in our forms, new content types to make requests with XML, and new ways to embed our forms.

New payment options: update customer or subscriptions

Until now, when you used a payment field, you could only create new customers in Stripe but, sometimes, you need to charge payments or add subscriptions to your current customers.

Now, you can select if you want to create a new customer or update an existing one simply with the Stripe customer ID.

You can also build an upgrade or downgrade flow by selecting “Upgrade subscription” and providing the current subscription ID that will be replaced with the new pricing ID.

Tip: Retrieve your current subscription ID or customer ID using a flow action or, if you already have them, pass them as hidden fields in your form.

New Stripe flow actions

Create or update customers

From now you can create or update customers in Stripe without needing to ask for payment details. The Update customer action is especially useful to build use cases that update billing information.

Add and delete Tax IDs

Handling taxes is a pain, so we’ve added two actions to build custom logic and allow you to be VAT compliant. For example, if you are based in Europe, you can build payment flows to decide if you apply reverse charge, exemption or collect taxes from your customers.

JavaScript support in our forms

Flexibility is one of the key features of Arengu and, as many of you have already requested, JavaScript is now supported in our HTML blocks. One of the main use cases is adding 3rd-party widgets or just executing custom code to extend your form capabilities.

HTTP Request now supports XML

We know… XML isn’t that sexy, but now you have a new content type available to make requests with XML.

And you can also debug them with the proper syntax highlight.

New ways to embed our forms

We’ve improved our Embed section to make it easier to embed our forms in any frontend stack. Just select the one you are using and follow the instructions:
