CashBox Release Notes 8.0.2

Features and Enhancements

This release includes the following new features and enhancements.

Improved Sales Tax Detail Report

If you use Avalara AvaTax to calculate tax rates, you can use the CashBox Sales Tax Detail report to show a list of tax amounts for transactions that occur within a specified date range. The tax amounts are shown per transaction and per jurisdiction.

The report also includes the following changes:

  • A new Tax Jurisdiction ID column.
  • Report columns are renamed to improve consistency. For example, the Refund Identifier column is now called Refund ID.

Ticket: CB-17724 

Push Notifications

Vindicia is developing a push notification framework to notify merchants when specified billing events occur. The expected release date for this framework is December 2014.

As a precursor to the push notification framework, Vindicia is providing limited support for "Refund Submitted" events in the current release. The Refund Submitted push notification feature is available on request. To request Refund Submitted push notifications, contact Vindicia Product Management (product_management@vindicia.com).

If you set up Refund Submitted push notifications, CashBox will send unsolicited, asynchronous JSON messages to a secure target URL you provide whenever the CashBox API or CashBox GUI portal performs a refund.

IMPORTANT: The push notifications feature requires you to develop and maintain a "listener" designed to receive and interpret the JSON messages.

Each JSON messages includes a unique message identifier, a timestamp, and refund details based on the same return data available to the Refund.fetch API methods (such as Refund.fetchByVid.
