Commerce API release notes for 2023.


We have introduced new features in Global Commerce that allow you to manage product combinations in the cart more efficiently. With the latest update, you can create a single product by combining multiple sellable SKUs (components) and setting the price and configuration of the bundled products per your pricing or product combination strategies.

In addition, we have added the ability to handle the cancellation and return of all components of a product combination together. When enabled, this feature will cancel unfulfilled items while setting fulfilled ones for return, making it easier to manage returns and cancellations.

Furthermore, you can set a Cart Item Limit for a Commerce API environment while configuring Global Commerce site settings. This setting enables you to restrict the number of items per cart, ensuring an optimal order size and improving processing performance.

You now can access your combined product and component details directly from the API payloads. This empowers you to use Commerce APIs to adjust your Product Detail Page, Cart Page, and Return/Refund pages. Some of the supported APIs include, but are not limited to:

The Commerce API Webhook Service is now easier to use. Previously, you could only authenticate the endpoint via OAuth using API configuration. However, now you can manage OAuth authentication effortlessly through Global Commerce!


We added support for recurring payments to Apple Pay.


  • We added a tax_service_invalid_hsCode_warning to Warnings to let you know when your provided HS code is incorrect when creating a product.

  • Digital River implemented a new feature that enhances tax calculation for certain US states by adding ZIP Codes and geocodes support. This feature addresses the specific tax calculation needs of regions that rely on geocodes and ZIP Codes. This enhancement will significantly improve tax calculation accuracy for users in regions where both ZIP Codes and geocodes are essential. This feature is available automatically; there is no need to enable anything. We also added the invalid-postal-code to the list of 409 Conflict codes.


We added support for tax-inclusive landed costs with a pretty price. The tax-inclusive landed cost enhancement ensures that the prices specified by the client for the product price and shipping cost become the final prices for the order. Tax-inclusive landed cost includes the following enhancements:


We added examples for creating a Digital River-hosted and client-hosted shopper and initiating an authenticated session for a Digital River-hosted and client-hosted shopper.

  • The total product quantity for the current subscription plan and midterm change exceeds the product quantity restriction.

We are excited to announce our new feature, Product Combination Supporting Subscriptions for Global Commerce. This feature allows you to include subscription products in a product combination and adjust the price to match your pricing or product combination strategies. Combining multiple SKUs from different product lines into a single product combination allows you to recognize revenue for each product line based on the component price. This feature also helps you address compliance concerns and minimize revenue loss from customers trying to break bundle offers and purchase products at a reduced price.


With our mixed cart feature, a shopper can create a cart that includes physical and digital products. Our feature uses the landed cost solution to calculate the total cost of your purchase, which is only determined once all items in the cart are deemed eligible. If you need help enabling landed cost and pretty price, don't hesitate to contact your Customer Success Manager for assistance.
