Latest Updates: May Edition Part 3 (Parent Order Returns, Designated Pickers, Country Specific VAT Numbers, Pickwave Improvements, Bug Fixes)

We understand how integral StoreFeeder can be to the day-to-day operation of our clients’ businesses, so our most recent update has focussed on improvements and fixes based on your feedback.

We are continuing to develop the service we offer, shaping and tweaking StoreFeeder to be as user-friendly and intuitive as possible.

Here is the rundown of the last set of updates for May:

Functionality Improvements

 

Parent Order Returns

When returning an order on your ‘View Orders’ page, the return line used to replace the order line.

Now, a new ‘child’ line will be created underneath for each return, so you can view the original order, and any returns, in an easier and more intuitive manner.

This also means that multiple returns will be supported per order, with the details of numbers of stock returned clearly visible on each child line.

New Purchase order Status

For better control over your ordering process, we have added the option to mark Purchase Orders as ‘Confirmed by supplier’

Improved user status: Designated Pickers

In your General User Information page in your StoreFeeder settings, we have added a toggle to mark your users as Designated Pickers. This way, your designated pickers will appear in alphabetical order on the top of the list when assigning a picker to your pickwaves.

All users will be automatically marked designated pickers, so you will need to manually turn this option off for your other users. You will still be able to select non-designated pickers from the bottom of the list.

Note that this only apply to admins. For non admin users, the picker is automatically defaults to that person.

CC option for email notifications

We have added a field ‘Email CC’ on the customer information page, so copies of any email communication to the customer will be sent to any additional email addresses you specify.

Country Specific Vat Numbers

In your company identity settings, we have added the option to add Country Specific Vat Numbers which will automatically be applied to any orders you send to those countries.

Please note that when you sell your products to EU countries, there are specific monetary thresholds over which you must declare tax in that country.

Knowledgebase: Country Specific Vat Numbers

HMRC: VAT: how to report your EU sales

Improved Pickwave page

By request, we have added additional details to the pickwave page:

  • A ‘live’ status showing how many orders are despatched at the point of viewing
  • An extra field to display the despatched orders in the pickwave
  • Despatched orders / order totals are now displayed on the Picking page

Greater Rest API Functionality

You can now create orders, up to a maximum of 5 at a time, directly via the rest API.

Postcode for eBay proximity Searches

In accordance with eBay’s listing specifications, your postcode is now used in addition to your city for your eBay listings. This is to improve eBay’s proximity searches, as customers are more likely to be shown listings from retailers closer to their location.

The potcode used is your integration postcode, and not that of the product warehouse. Please note that your postcode data is never made customer visible within eBay, and appears only as part of your return address labels.

 

Bug Fixes

 

Fixed a bug that caused some products in ‘awaiting return’ status to be incorrectly marked as ‘returned’.

Fixed a bug that allowed some users to create Purchase Orders when they did not have the correct user permissions.

Fixed a rare bug where the order status ‘awaiting return’ was incorrectly adding stock back into some inventories.

Fixed a bug where the ‘Stock take by pick bin’ report was displaying total stock as opposed to stock by location, and fixed some currency symbol formatting errors.
