March Payments Release Notes

Welcome to Sardine's Payments monthly release notes for March! We are delighted to share the latest updates and improvements made by our engineering team to enhance our payment products. Our goal is to provide you with the best payment and crypto experience while always prioritizing your safety and security.

In this month's release notes, we have made some exciting updates to our product, which we are thrilled to share with you.

  • Higher Limits: We’ve increased our users’ max ACH limits for purchasing crypto
  • NFT Checkout: We’ve launched our NFT checkout experience internationally
  • Enhanced Robustness: We’ve focused on improving our quoting and webhook experience

New Features

Higher Limits

We have significantly enhanced our platform, which now allows users to transact with higher limits. This improvement is particularly notable for power users, as it greatly enhances their experience on our platform. They can now enjoy the freedom to purchase larger amounts of cryptocurrency in a single session with locked-in pricing, making the process more convenient than ever before.

When purchasing with higher limits, you may receive a notification that your purchase will include two withdrawals, one immediate and one after your funds have cleared. During the hold period, a portion of your purchased cryptocurrency will be released to you immediately, while the rest is held in an escrow account for added security. This ensures the authenticity and safety of your investment, giving you peace of mind knowing that you're getting exactly what you paid for. Higher purchasing limits allow you to take your crypto investment to new heights and enjoy a seamless, secure, and exciting experience.

Prefilling cardholder name

We have introduced a new feature that pre-fills your cardholder name based on the information you provided when signing up, saving time and minimizing input errors during the checkout process.


International NFT Launch

Our international users can now enjoy the benefits of our NFT product. The expansion has been designed with global customers in mind and will help to expand our reach and impact in new markets. Keep an eye out for our on-ramp expanding to more global locations.


Add confirmed_at status in JS event

We have added a new status called confirmed_at, which provides real-time confirmation of payments for users. This update will help to eliminate any uncertainty during the payment process and provide greater peace of mind.

We’ve also enhanced our quoting service to be more robust in any industry turbulence.

Bug Fixes

Our engineering team has been working hard to fix bugs and ensure our product is reliable and user-friendly. Here are some of the bugs we fixed in March:

  • We fixed an issue where orders were missing reference IDs
  • We fixed an issue where we had displayed debit card fees regardless of a user’s payment method (e.g., ach). The processing fees will respect the selected payment method.
  • We fixed an issue where the user’s payment method reverted back to their default payment even if a different payment method was selected.
  • We fixed a couple of cosmetic issues regarding our email receipts to users, including displaying the full date (Month D, Yr)
  • We fixed an issue where users couldn’t go forward with trailing whitespace on their personal details
  • We fixed an issue where our webhooks fired twice on user’s confirming a order
  • We fixed an issue to our on-ramp fixed_fiat_currency parameter

We hope you enjoy the latest updates and improvements made by our engineering team. If you have any questions, comments, or feedback, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you for choosing Sardine Payments, and we look forward to serving you in the coming months.
