Release Notes

July 2020

Changed functionality

Improved handling of mismatched authorizations and clearings

Transactions for identical amounts at the same merchant occasionally are mismatched with their reference identifiers. This enhancement provides additional data to help you determine the correct authorization for a given transaction.

Missing pin_present field added to Swagger

The pin_present is now included in Swagger with this release.

Clearing webhooks included incorrect data in the original_amount field for some Visa transactions

Clearing webhooks for Visa transactions now include the correct data in the original_amount field of the currency_conversion object.

Clearing webhooks included incorrect data for cross-border issuer fees for some Visa transactions

Clearing webhooks for Visa transactions now include the correct data for the CROSS_BORDER_ISSUER_FEE.

Notable documentation changes

Wording change: "master access token" renamed "admin access token"

This change is implemented throughout Marqeta documentation.

June 2020

Changed functionality

New decline_reason field in Gateway JIT response

The decline_reason field lets you specify the reason why a Gateway JIT Funding transaction was rejected. This field is optional. If you do not include this field in your Gateway JIT Funding response, the transaction is declined with the reason "insufficient funds." The new decline reasons are mapped to the relevant card network response codes. See Gateway JIT Funding Messages.

New JIT Funding transaction response codes

Several new JIT Funding codes, available as transaction response codes, provide more clarity about JIT Funding decisions for transactions. See Transaction response codes.

Added support for Compressed AVS Data for Mastercard AVS processing

Compressed AVS data is commonly used by United Kingdom and European Union merchants during tokenization.

New pin_present field in transaction model V2

This field indicates whether a PIN was entered during a transaction, and appears in Gateway JIT calls, transaction webhooks, and GET /transactions.

New notification_email field in user.metadata

This email address can receive one-time passwords for 3DS authentication. It is useful when the user.email field is null or not set. Send a PUT or POST to /users to set this metadata.

Visa chargeback representment webhooks original amount issue resolved

Visa chargeback representment webhooks no longer include incorrect original amounts in the currency_conversion object.

Gateway JIT and transaction webhooks no longer receive cardholder_authentication_data

The cardholder_authentication_data object in Gateway JIT and transaction webhooks was being sent unnecessarily for tokenized transactions. This object will now be sent only for transactions where 3DS authentication is attempted.

Easier direct deposit return handling

You can now return direct deposits directly from the cardholder transaction table in apps.marqeta.com, which simplifies the direct deposit returns workflow. To return a transaction, choose an applicable return reason code from the list, then enter a description.

Notable documentation changes

New developer guide for personal identification numbers (PINs)

This new guide covers resetting the PIN retry counter and modifying a program’s PIN retry limit value. It also includes a PIN retry flow that explains how to intervene when a cardholder’s card has been locked out after reaching the maximum number of unsuccessful PIN retries. For details, see About Personal Identification Numbers.

New API reference page for the /acceptedcountries endpoint

New documentation for Visa Cases (Beta)

For guidance and reference information about the Cases API for Visa, see Managing Visa Cases (Beta) Developer Guide and Cases (Visa) (Beta) API Reference.

May 2020

Changed functionality

For the accepted_countries endpoint, POST and PUT are newly restricted to Admin users only

Other roles can retrieve the list of accepted countries, but cannot change its contents. With this change, the API Explorer will no longer show POST and PUT calls for this endpoint.

Webhooks provide spend control details for declined transactions

You can configure the Marqeta platform to send a webhook whenever a transaction is declined. If a spend control is responsible for declining the transaction, the webhook sent now includes the additional_information field. This field contains the name of the spend control responsible for the transaction being declined. To learn more, read Controlling Spending.

Last four digits of PAN displayed in digital wallets during PAN swap functions

The Mobile Wallet UI now displays the last four digits of the card PAN during PAN swap functions for Mastercard. Previously, the PAN swap was occurring successfully, but was not reflected in the Mobile Wallet UI.

Improved support for long business names

Long business names (up to 255 characters) are now supported when creating or updating a business' payment card information. To learn more, read Businesses.

Notable documentation changes

New and updated sections in the Ledger Management with JIT Funding guide

April 2020

New features

Visa and Mastercard have added new token requestor names

Visa and Mastercard have added a number of new token requestors as a response to increased tokenization by e-commerce merchants. These token requestors have unique token requestor IDs and use unknown as the token requestor name.

We are currently creating specific, more accurate names for approximately 200 new token requestors on the Marqeta platform. For details, see the token_service_provider object of GET /digitalwallettokens/{token}.

Because the list of token requestor names may change, we recommend not hardcoding against specific values for token requestor names.

Financial advice authorization clearing events include amount to be released

Financial advice authorization.clearing transaction events include a new field, amount_to_be_released. This field is useful for automated fuel dispenser (AFD) transactions, where the authorization may be for a fixed amount higher than the actual amount cleared.

You can use this field to update your ledgers to reflect the actual amount more quickly, then release the excess funds back to your customer. For details, see Transaction Events.

Velocity controls supported for dual-message withdrawal transactions

Velocity controls that apply to cash withdrawals now support dual-message withdrawal transactions, which are common in the European Union.

Previously, any velocity controls that excluded purchases from consideration also did not limit cash withdrawals. For details, see Controlling Spending.

Changed functionality

State of digital wallet tokens reflected in wallets

Digital wallets now update to reflect the status of their digital wallet tokens when a token is suspended or resumed. Previously, suspended tokens appeared active, but their transactions would decline.

Suspended tokens now appear as unavailable for payment in their digital wallets.

Notable documentation changes

New ledger management developer guide

The Ledger Management for JIT Funding guide describes how to use information contained in JIT messages to help manage your account ledgers, which transaction events impact the ledger, and best practices for ledger management.

Newly documented fields in transaction response model

Transaction type authorization.clearing, following a financial advice, returns these fields:

Name Description


Amount to release following a financial advice.


Object containing the amount and token of the preceding authorization transaction.

See the Transactions API reference.

Conditionally returned fields explained

Core and DiVA API reference pages now describe the conditions under which the API returns all fields documented as "Conditionally returned."
