We’re excited to tell you about some recent updates our team has implemented for our Stripe integration. As many of you know, Stripe is one of the payment gateways we integrate with here at Harvest. It allows your clients to easily pay your invoices online, making the process of getting paid quickly a breeze. Let’s jump in!
First, we’ve been able to improve data security by changing the way that Harvest talks to Stripe. Without taking you too far “into the weeds,” we no longer store an access token for each Harvest account that is connected to Stripe. This means that we’re storing less sensitive data on our side, making an already secure system even more secure.
Secondly, we’ve fully integrated Stripe’s newly supported currencies. Back when we first built this integration, Stripe had more limits on which currencies could be used and by who. For example, Stripe accounts in Canada could charge in US dollars and Canadian dollars, but they couldn’t charge in British pounds. Today, thanks to Stripe’s expanded currency support, Harvest users can now charge their clients in their native currency in over 135 countries.
We hope that you are as excited as we are about these changes! If you have any questions, be sure to reach out.
