Xsolla Fall Product Announcement

At Xsolla, we’re looking forward to the changing colors of the leaves and the upcoming releases for new consoles and titles in time for the holiday season. The fall fun hasn’t stopped us from working hard on new features for the Xsolla Business Engine iOS app, improved disputes monitoring, new web store solutions, and other exciting updates.

New Features: Xsolla Business Engine iOS App Updates

We’re continuing to give you easy ways to manage your business from your smartphone with improvements to our Business Engine iOS app. Some new features you should check out include:

  • Payout reports to track your game’s financial performance
  • Transaction report with information about revenue, payout amount, taxes, fees and other costs with filters for custom time periods
  • In-app chat support for faster and easier help
  • Two-factor authentication settings for an extra layer of data protection

Benefits to you:

  • Fast access to the most important financial data
  • Easier communication with an Xsolla employee to ask questions or share feedback
  • Added level of security of your data with two-factor authentication via email or SMS

How to get started:

New Feature: Dispute Section in Publisher Account

The new disputes section in Publisher Account provides detailed information for all cases initiated by users who paid with bank cards and PayPal, and those may have been victims of credit card fraud. You can also find general statistics here. This new section allows partners to conveniently track the status of a certain dispute case and see the result.

We're confident that having more access to your dispute management record will give you greater peace of mind about how we handle this crucial element of your gaming business.


Benefits to you:

  • Follow information on certain disputes and certain users (for instance, to block a fraudster on your side or, alternatively, make a positive influence on the case)
  • Receive information about overall traffic
  • Learn about open disputes and, if necessary, take part in the argument (for instance, provide additional proof from your own system that Xsolla doesn’t yet have)


How to get started:

  • Visit Disputes under Support inside Xsolla Publisher Account

New Payment Methods: Brazil and Hong Kong

Xsolla Pay Station now offers more payment methods in Brazil and Hong Kong.


Brazil: Boleto Flash®

Boleto Flash® is a new payment method that offers the same coverage as Boleto bancário, one of Brazil’s most popular alternative payment methods accounting for 20% market share. Boleto Flash® gives you the same access to unbanked Brazilians, without the long payment confirmation wait time of Boleto bancário; once a Boleto Flash® is paid the merchant receives a confirmation in less than 1 hour. Payments can be made via mobile banking app, online banking, at an ATM, at the counter of an associated bank, or at any of the more than 13,000 lottery agencies throughout the country.


Hong Kong: Alipay HK

Alipay HK is a digital wallet created by a parent company of Alipay CN. It is a separate application you can find in Google and Apple app stores together with traditional Alipay CN.


Unlike Alipay, Alipay HK lets users register and pay without a valid ID issued in China, but with an ID issued in Hong Kong instead. It’s important to note that Alipay HK users aren’t able to make payments with traditional Alipay CN. Also, unlike Alipay CN, cross-border payments are available in the local currency (HKD). At this time, Alipay HK does not require separate onboarding for each game.


Benefits to you:


Boleto Flash®

  • Conversion increase by 20%
  • Faster payment processing — Boleto Flash is confirmed within 1 hour during working hours (versus 2-3 business days for traditional Boleto)
  • Better commercial rates (2.29% + 0.25 BRL Boleto Flash) versus 2.29% + 0.4 BRL (traditional Boleto)  


Alipay HK

  • Access to 2+ million users already registered in the Alipay HK system


How to get started:

  • Brazil: Request setup from our account management team at am@xsolla.com
  • Alipay HK:  Enable Alipay HK under Payment methods in Pay Station 

New Solution: Web Store for Game Sales

How to get started:

Our code-free tools let you build your own custom website with Site Builder to sell virtual items, virtual currencies, subscriptions and DLC directly to players with the versatility of a web store. And with user authentication, players get instant access to goods in-game from purchases made via the web.

  • Drive sales with promotions: Host game sales, offer discounts, and feature bundles with a powerful suite of tools that support multi-platform and cross-platform options.


How to get started:

New Product: Secondary Market for In-game Items

Our partnership with Dmarket lets you create a secondary market for in-game items where players can buy, sell, and trade premium skins and weapons. 


Creating limited run or unique virtual items in your game increases the demand for players to make purchases. Now with a secondary market, purchases become an investment for the players to later sell and trade freely and safely. 


Players win with the opportunity to earn some money and you win by creating demand for exclusive items available in your game. This drives retention and extends your customer lifetime value.


Benefits to you:

  • Boost player investment:  Offer challenges to entice players with the promise of desirable rewards for reaching trade milestones.
  • Grow lifetime value and retention: Increase retention by adding skins trading and rewarding players’ game progress with tradable assets.
