Conversion of Legacy Broadcaster Accounts to White Label (Authorized)
Previously, some of our legacy broadcasters used to have a non-white label integration with the Cleeng platform, so their customers’ accounts may have been also associated with other Cleeng broadcasters. This may have happened because their customer account was created with Cleeng (rather than the broadcaster), and using this account they may have purchased offers from several broadcasters.
With this improvement, all non-white label broadcaster accounts have been converted to white label (authorized) accounts. Now all our broadcasters are authorized, which means that customers’ accounts are exclusive to each individual broadcaster.
The change is transparent to you as a broadcaster, so you do not need to take any action.
The main benefit is that all broadcasters can use APIs that were previously only available to the authorized ones, for example MediaStore APIs. Also, all broadcasters can now use the customer anonymization feature.
We are pleased to inform you that we have improved our support for 3D Secure.
3DSecure adds another layer of security for online transactions made with credit or debit cards. It is a fraud-protection measure as it requires additional verification. That’s why, when paying, the customer is either redirected to the card issuer’s website or completes extra authorization within your payment solution.
This newer version of 3DS (called '3D Secure 2.') allows for electronic transactions to be exempted from Strong Customer Authentication (SCA). The main exemption applicable would be Merchant Initiated Transactions (MIT). This is a large group of transactions, including recurring payments. SCA may be required to set up such arrangements, mainly if initiated through a remote channel. However, once in place, all subsequent payments can be processed without applying SCA.
The new Cleeng upgrade allows you to take advantage of it.
Clients using MS SDK Components
If you are using MediaStore SDK Components, you need to upgrade the components to version 3.1.0 (see more here).
Clients using APIs directly
We strongly encourage our current clients using the legacy endpoints to integrate with Adyen payment methods to migrate to the new endpoints as apart from the support for 3D Secure this also gives a wider choice of payment methods.
Improvement to the Churn metrics
In the Subscriber Daily Dashboard, Customer Churned Subscriptions was replaced by Customer Canceled Subscriptions.
The equation and definition remain the same. Customer Canceled Subscription is the count of subscriptions regarding which users have indicated a cancellation intention.
