Hey there, friends! Hope everyone's having a happy, spooky Halloween!
Here at Routable, we love adding cool new stuff to the API endpoints you can call. That said, we wouldn't be very good friends if we didn't call you sometimes, too, and that's what our webhooks do, allowing your applications to react to events that occur in the Routable platform regardless of whether they came from the API, the Routable Dashboard, or even your vendors and customers. Today, Routable's proud to announce the first wave of enhancements we're making to our webhook offerings, by adding several new webhook events and some new power we can take advantage of in the next round!
Last month, we announced the addition of United States tax data collection for vendors, and we promised that support for vendors outside the United States was coming soon. Well, soon is today!
Routable's International Payments offering continues to span the globe, offering more currencies in more countries at less cost all the time! Today we've deployed support for payments via local rails (
international_ach) in the following currencies:
When you're automating transactions with lots of vendors, such as independent contractors and gig workers, collection of tax information is a real hassle. At least, it used to be.
If you've explored Routable's International Payments offerings - and if you haven't, why not? - you're probably familiar with the Supported Countries and Territories Explorer. This feature of our documentation allows you to check what capabilities and requirements Routable has when sending Payables to a Company in that country or territory.
Routable's international payments platform continues to grow! We've added the ability to send US dollars (USD), British pounds (GBP), or Euros (EUR) to any of our more than 200 Supported Countries and Territories via the SWIFT network. Of course, if the vendor's local currency is not one of those three but is supported by our platform, the vendor will continue to receive that currency as well. The Routable API will automatically detect what currency is expected by the vendor's receiving bank account, and the vendor will receive funds in that currency. You don't need to change anything in your Payable API requests to use this new feature!
We're excited to bring you two more ways to speed your payments around the world.
Routable is excited to announce that our API now supports creation of PaymentMethods with a
international. This means you can now fully integrate the onboarding process for your International Payments vendors in your applications as easily as you do for your domestic vendors. Of course, if you prefer to use Routable's hosted onboarding experience, branded with your company's logo and colors, that option remains available as well.
Now, receiving can be as good as giving.
