Keep reading to learn more about all the new features.
Stored Payment Methods
You want to make the e-commerce process for your constituents as easy as possible: plain and simple! The Stored Payment Methods feature takes that to heart. Your constituents can now checkout quickly in Community Hub by simply selecting one of the stored payment methods they have on their account. Constituents can now store and manage their various credit card payment methods on the new My Payment Methods page in Community Hub. Additionally, staff can not only use constituent’s stored payment methods in the Staff View order process, they can also view the stored payment methods on an account and help manage them.
eCheck Stored Payment Type
Variety is the spice of life, right? That is especially true when giving your constituents as many ways to pay as possible. Nimble AMS now supports eCheck, also known as Automated Clearing House (ACH). The new eCheck stored payment type uses the same payment gateway currently used for credit card processing. We take transaction security very seriously, and this new feature is no exception. As with credit card payments, all collected eCheck payment details are passed securely to the payment gateway for processing. Only the payment gateway token and last 4 digits of the account number are stored in Nimble AMS. The eCheck stored payment type is also available in the Staff View order process and Community Hub checkout.
Credit Card Address Verification in Community Hub
Nimble AMS is helping you fight online fraud in Community Hub even more by supporting the Address Verification System (AVS) within Authorize.Net. Community Hub has always offered the standard verification support of Card Code Verification (CCV). With AVS, your association gains the added fraud protection by also verifying the credit card's billing address at the time of processing.
New Community Hub Checkout and Invoice Experience
The Community Hub Checkout and Invoice Experience has been improved, making these pages more customizable than ever before. We are providing new templates, extendable buttons, and improvements to the API, giving developers more power than ever to personalize your association's Community Hub Checkout and Invoice experience.
Community Hub Profile Photo and Logo
Your Community Hub profile is getting a little more personalized! Constituents can now upload and manage their photo for a more personalized account profile and experience in Community Hub. Their profile photo displays on the Personal Snapshot page and can be used in various rosters, directories, or even a community. Company managers can also upload and manage the logo for their company profile. The company logo displays on the Company Profile page and can also be used in rosters, directories, and more published items like a buyers guide.
Overall, Summer ‘17 is full of exciting new features and we can’t wait for your constituents to reap the benefits of stored payments, eCheck, greater fraud protection, and a more personal Community Hub experience. To learn more about the features, go to help.nimbleams.com/preview.
