The following Applications features will be available to integrated partners only:

  1. Use the bank_account_type parameter to create and retrieve merchant savings and checking accounts as part of the application process.    

          NOTE: This parameter only supports business bank accounts, not personal bank accounts.

2. Find out immediately why an application was declined with the declined_reason parameter for applications in declined status.

The following Transactions features will be available to both integrated partners and merchants:

  1. We’ve fixed the routing number validation for Canadian transactions, so now our friendly northern neighbors can create more echeck payment methods for their customers.
  2. Service Fee and/or Tax merchants can now use the auto-calculated subtotal_amount parameter to easily calculate the authorization_amount of a transaction.
  3. We are upgrading our documentation, Forte REST API v3,  which is now available for preview.
