IP parameter added to POST/purchases endpoint

You can now include IP address as a parameter if sending purchases to Friendbuy via our REST API. This enhancement will allow us to perform self-referral checks when processing the purchase for identifying a conversion.

For more information, check out the developer docs.


This past fall, we upgraded all accounts to a new file retrieval structure that seriously improved Javascript performance. Because the JS was so fast, some merchants that were firing purchase events twice at checkout, were creating duplicate conversions, too fast for our standard validation. We've implemented a big fix to ensure no same conversion is ever tracked twice. (internal FBY-75)
