Foster City, CA – February 27, 2014

Release Story:

Zuora, the subscription billing, commerce and finance leader announces the availability of its Feb ‘14 release. This release adds more configuration options for hosted commerce pages and credit card rules, while making alignment with your accounting applications easier and enhancing accounting code customization.

The highlights of this release include:

    • Configurable credit card validation for historical subscriber data

In the past, customers could only migrate up-to-date credit card data into Zuora. Now, customers can also migrate historical credit card data by choosing to ignore credit card expiration dates. Once this data is loaded, customers can use Zuora’s Account Updater feature to update and maintain all subscriber credit card information going forward.

    • Hosted Commerce Pages Now More Configurable

Zuora’s hosted commerce pages provide customers with the ability to quickly configure web pages that can be embedded on their website with simple point and click tools. With this release, these pages become even more configurable as customers will now be able to define the order in which page sections and fields will be displayed.

    • Accounting Codes Now Available In Data Extracts

Last July, Zuora introduced the Chart of Accounts feature to enable easier integration and alignment between Zuora and accounting applications. Starting this month, customers now have access to a new data extract allowing them to export accounting codes from Zuora. Additionally, multiple data sources have been updated to include accounting code fields. This ensures all transactional data extracts from Zuora easily align with your third party accounting applications.

    • Accounting Codes Now Support Custom Fields

Finance teams often need to categorize accounting codes using additional meta data such as department, region, business unit, etc. in order to summarize and measure the health of the business across multiple financial dimensions. With this release, finance administrators can now achieve this goal by adding custom fields to accounting codes.

All of Zuora’s hundreds of customers automatically received this product update with no negative impact to existing configurations and customizations. This is only possible with the modern, multi-tenant SaaS architecture found in Zuora’s Z-Business platform. Customers can read about the details of the Feb ‘14 release here.


Sr. Vice President of Product Strategy and Product Management at Zuora, Guillaume Vives commented: “This month was really about continuing to enable high-volume online B2C commerce. The enhancements to our secure commerce pages and credit card data management capabilities make it easier for our customers to acquire and nurture their subscribers.”
