Card Type Now Returned with Customer Profiles, Plus eCheck.Net Settlement in Sandbox

Today we are announcing an update to the Authorize.Net API for Customer Profiles based on a product idea from the community. We now return the card type with every customer profile request: GetCustomerPaymentProfile, GetCustomerProfile and GetCustomerPaymentProfileList. This makes it convenient for developers to display the card type when presenting a list of cards for the user to select.





One important thing to note: as we update existing profiles over the next few days, the new card type field could return a null value for some older profiles until all the updates are complete.


We’re also announcing some new sandbox features for eCheck.Net developers: eCheck.Net settlement is now enabled in the sandbox along with simulation of Returns and Notifications-of-Change using our updated Testing Guide. With these enhancements, you can now perform end-to-end testing of your eCheck.Net integration.


Please keep using our Product Ideas forum to let us know what you want to see in the platform.

I can tell you that our clients will be happy to hear about this update. Displaying the cardType in the UI for a customer has become an expected feature of sorts so it's great will be able to deliver on this with the CIM api.


It's also good to see that this came from the community and got a response.
