ANU #54 — New Release Candidate and Async Payment Flow Updates
Welcome to the AppCoins News Update, ‘ANU’ for short. This week, we’re focusing on a new Release Candidate which features improved user support and billing systems, and a new solution for the AppCoins Wallet backup. Read on to find out more!
In this ANU we’ll reveal a new (soon-to-come) release and other updates we’ve been working on:
This week we are planning on releasing a new version of the AppCoins Wallet! This release will include two features that we have mentioned in our previous ANU. One of them is brand new, and the other — although not so new — is still highly important to us:
The user support is ready to go. As previously mentioned, for now, it will only be available to some of our users, but will soon be accessible to all. This is a cool new feature that will provide direct contact with our Support Team.
If you are not one of the users that will have access to this feature in our next release, bear in mind that we are already working on improvements, and that these will be available to all users in the next release.
Billing System Integration Update
As we’ve told you in the previous ANU, there was a need to update the billing system integration in order to get more feedback from the purchase processes. That integration has been done and is being thoroughly tested.
Async Payment Flow Updates
We already provide local payment methods in some countries where users are more likely to choose a local payment option instead of PayPal or credit card. We provide this option to make sure that our billing system is available in the methods that our users are more comfortable using.
We’ve very much appreciated our users’ feedback on these payment methods, and removing the asynchronous ones was one of the decisions taken. These ones didn’t allow us to confirm the payment in a timely manner, and therefore it prevented us from providing the item to the user directly. User experience was compromised to an extent that was not worthy to be kept.
So we’ve come up with updates for these types of payment methods and have been working hard for them to be available again soon. Our goal is to make sure the user understands what is happening and comprehends the purchase flow.
New Solution for Wallet Backup
The wallets’ view and especially the backup wallet process have also suffered some last-minute changes related to UI, always aiming for the simplicity and best user experience. Have a look and tell us what’s your opinion!
