Webmasters can now set the rebill price of active (not-cancelled) subscriptions.
The amount can be set to a value between the minimum processing amount and the amount used in the last rebill (or the maximum amount set the by cancel discount if it was applied). The “Lower future rebills” option is available on Sales detail page.
New postback type “downgrade” was added to notify about the price change. See updated FlexPay subscription document for details.
The previously announced refund and chargeback postbacks are now turned on for any websites created as of today.
For existing FlexPay websites these postbacks can be enabled on request (contact firstname.lastname@example.org).
The latest version of Verotel FlexPay is now 3.3.
There are several changes that you may find useful:
- It is now possible to specify a “declineURL” parameter – a URL to which Order Page gets redirected after a declined transaction
- It is possible to receive postbacks from refunds and chargebacks – this can be enabled on request (contact email@example.com)
- As with membership websites, it is now possible to specify cancel discount for recurring subscriptions.
- FlexPay PHP library is now available on GitHub

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS – May 31st 2016. Verotel, the payment facilitator based in Amsterdam, Netherlands, has started to distribute Virtual Reality cardboard headsets to customers of its merchants offering VR content.
