New PUT endpoint to Update customer information is now available. It allows you to mark the customer on the account as active or inactive with the is_active field. This field is informative only. There are no restrictions that prevent inactive customers to perform any actions.

The other endpoint to Update customer information is the PATCH operation, which allows you to update fields of the person or the company that is linked to the account, but you can’t activate or deactivate them.

πŸ“ New Close dispute endpoint

New Close dispute endpoint is now available. Previously, you couldn't accept a second presentment and withdraw a chargeback. You had to either continue the dispute for a pre-arbitration or use the Mastercard interface. Now, the new endpoint allows you to close the dispute.
