August 9, 2022
General availability release—Payment Services is now compatible with Adobe Commerce and Magento Open Source versions 2.4.0 to 2.4.5.
Apple Pay is now compatible with the Safari browser v15.5 on mobile and desktop.
June 29, 2022
Apple Pay is incompatible with the Safari browser v15.5 on mobile and desktop. When using Safari version 15.5, you are not able to complete checkout with Apple Pay.
Previously, when a logged-in user selected a different billing/shipping address other than the default address for their account, checkout failed. We fixed this issue, and now the selected billing/shipping address is sent (instead of the default saved address) and checkout is completed successfully.
If you disable PayPal smart buttons for checkout, no errors are shown.
Payments no longer fail during checkout when a guest user enters a phone number that includes dashes.
When Commerce Services credentials are invalid, the Payment Services Home will now appear in the Admin. A credentials error appears to alert you that your credentials are invalid.
Payment Services is currently incompatible with
commerce-data-export v101.20 and higher, which renders it incompatible with the Channel manager extension.
These release notes describe feature changes and fixes that occurred and were released outside of the regular versioned feature releases, between the current v1.2.0 release and the previous 1.1.0 release for the hosted service.
Apple Pay is now available as a PayPal Smart Button. This payment option enables customers to use Touch ID on their devices to use Apple Pay, which uses credit and debit card payment credentials stored on their iOS or macOS devices.
Disputes for store orders are now available in the Order payment status report. You can navigate directly to the PayPal Resolution Center from Payment Services to take action on disputes.
User experience improvements from Payment Services Home include the ability to modify a configuration at the current inheritance level and improvements to display of the header and navigation.
You can now see warnings when you switch from sandbox mode to production mode and when you attempt to navigate away from a view with updates that have not been saved.
