Added new institution type to display in the widget
There’s a new institution type you can set to display in the widget:

BIWEEKLY changed to
FORTNIGHTLY for accuracy
In our Incomes response, we return the
frequency with which transactions are received. To be more precise and avoid confusion, we changed the value
FORTNIGHTLY to describe incomes received every two weeks. Here’s the updated list:
Language input returns an error
We had a bug in Incomes (EYOD) that caused the
language input to return an invalid_choice error. Sorry about that! This is now fixed.
Wrong income type in Incomes
We noticed there was one wrong
income_type listed by mistake in our Incomes resource: the category

New resource in the house: Payment intents!
For those using our Payment Initiation solution in 🇨🇴 Colombia (PSE), we’ve got news for you! The Payment Intents resource will walk you through the necessary steps that you need to guide your user through in order to complete the payment flow. You can check this out in our API Reference.
But that’s not all! To help you navigate the different payment intent flows, we created dedicated guides for Payment intents in 🇨🇴 Colombia (PSE) and updated our ur Postman collection so you can test them out!
And another resource: Payment webhooks!
To keep you always in the loop with your payment flows, we added Payment Webhooks to our API Reference. You can use this resource to register a payment webhook that will let you know about relevant updates that occur during the payment process (such as bank account creation, payment status updates, and so on). Of course, we’ve also updated our Payment webhooks article with this info if you want to know more.

We know that Secret Keys hold sensitive data and we think it’s important to know when secret keys were created and used. That’s why now with every request you make to our Secret keys resource, we return
legal_entity to our payment institutions

We take regulatory compliance to heart! So, to be compliant with Brazil’s regulatory authority, we now return the
legal_entity name of payment institutions. Check our API Reference for more info on Payment Institutions.

Improved description for our
amount field in Payment Links and Payment Intents
amountfield in Payment Links and Payment Intents
When you’re creating a payment link or a payment intent, you can actually choose to send through the
amount to be paid by your customer as:
- a string or an integer for PSE (🇨🇴 Colombia)
- a string or a float for OFPI (🇧🇷 Brazil)
We’ve added more info on these options in our request parameters to be clearer and to help you collect payments from your customers without hassle.
You can check out our Payment Links and Payment Intents resources for more info.
