1 Introduction

In the context of subscriptions new preferences have been introduced. These are presented in the following document.

2 Payment Fallback Preferences

A configurable fallback payment method has been introduced which is automatically used when the order creation fails with payment failures. The payment fallback can be configured as channel preference per dbinit/dbmigrate of the cartridge bc_order_service. There is no general default value for the preference definition.

  • OrderCreationServiceEmailFrom

  • OrderCreationServiceEmailTo

  • OrderCreationServiceEmailTemplate

OrderCreationServiceEmailSubject=ChannelPreferences;3;;true;Order Creation
