Other product news

Here’s a snippet of other updates we’ve made recently:

  • Improved the safety of carts using different currencies. The requests which would mix up currencies will now be rejected.
  • Fixed an issue with carts whereby changing the product quantity would change the order of cart items. This will now be preserved.
  • Added attribute validation so that only known events are accepted.
  • Checkout call now returns order items in the response.
  • We've also shipped incremental dashboard improvements, solving some of the most common frustrations our customers encounter, including improving the currency edit UI. Take a look in the dashboard to see them in action.
