Subscription commerce provider Zuora has released an updated developer center and added some 30 applications to its Zuora Connect marketplace.

Connect integrates into the Zuora subscription management platform which currently enables more than 800 companies to design new pricing models; automate downstream billing, payments, and revenue recognition based on subscription charges; and run the business based on industry standard, customer-centric subscription metrics.

The Connect marketplace features a new developer site and nearly 100 apps created specifically for subscription businesses including quoting, financial operations, data ingestion, e-signatures and ERP integrations. The apps are built to solve real-world use cases, such as lockbox file processing, custom dunning workflows, discount management rules, and more. All apps are built by Zuora and its customers and ISV partners, and are hosted on the Zuora platform.

New to Zuora Connect are lockbox synchronizations with banks (Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Bank of the West, Commonwealth Bank, City National Bank, Harris Bank), and connectors to data providers (ProfitWell Visualization Dashboard, Amplitude, MailChimp, Mixpanel, WhatCounts, Zendesk), app stores (Amazon and Apple), and tax management solutions (Sabrix, Vertex and CCH).

Some of the most commonly used Connect Applications include Collections Manager (for dunning and invoice collections processes), Advanced Payment Retry (minimizes revenue leakage by orchestrating retry rules and actions), developer tools (for onboarding new customer and performing migrations and updates en masses with API loaders) and promo codes.
