Latest Release Updates – 19th December 2018

Seasons Greetings and welcome to the last release blog post of 2018!

We hope you are all enjoying this festive season as we have been. Just want to say a big congratulations to our customers, for what has been most people’s busiest peak period ever.

StoreFeeder has seen a record breaking amount of orders being imported and despatched through the system.

As always we have been working hard to support you all through this busy period, and as such, development of new features and updates have been lower than normal, but we have made a few updates.

Here is what we have been working on and what is to come in the New Year.

Additional Information on the manifest overview

Some customers were telling us that they needed more information on the Manifest Overview. So now, when manifesting, you will now notice new fields appear in the stats box, as shown below:

The following fields have been added:

  • Total Orders – This will show the total number of orders ready for manifest
  • Total Weight (Kg) – This will show total weight of all these orders
  • Total Consignments – This will show the number of parcels that the orders

These added bits of information will provide you with more information about your post.

International Returns eBay Listings

When listing to eBay, you will see some new options in the eBay settings tab.

There are now some additional fields for returns:

You will now be able to specify if International Returns are accepted and in what time frame these are accepted in. This will also allow you to specify who pays the shipping cost for International Returns.

Coming Soon:

DHL Integration

A long awaited integration, that has been continually worked on, is near completion and should be ready for our next release in the New Year!

Electronic Pre Advice

As mentioned in our last blog post, quickly approaching will be electronic pre-advice, which is set to be in effect in early January. In preparation for this, you will need to ensure the following fields against your products are populated:

  • Country of Origin
  • Harmonised System (HS) Trade Tariff code
  • Item details (it is important to provide an accurate and concise description of goods, quantity, weight and value)

These fields can be found in the shipping and handling tabs against the products in StoreFeeder.

More information on this can be found here

That’s it for now. As always, if you have any suggestions for improvements or further ways in which we can benefit your business, we would love to hear from you.

Latest Release Updates – 2nd October 2018

As you may have seen in a previous blog post, the Development Team have been hard at work on work to allow users to take advantage of the new eBay Product Based Shopping Experience (PBSE). We have also been hard at work on further improvements to functionality within StoreFeeder and the StoreFeeder App.

Oh and we had a great time meeting old and new customers at the Ecommerce Expo in London!!

Emailing Tracked Returns Labels

You can now send a customer a Royal Mail Tracked Returns Label directly from the order within StoreFeeder. It does not matter which courier you used to ship the original order, you can email the customer a PDF of a Royal Mail Tracked Return label

To access this great feature, you need to create an email account on StoreFeeder and an email template that will populate the email that is sent from the system for the return. The label is simply attached to the email.

A great time saving way of making returns easier for your customers

For more information on setting this up, please contact the Support Team who will be happy to help

Multiple Products with the same barcode (EAN)

It is quite common now that multiple products have the same EAN or barcode. This has the ability to cause problems when using StoreFeeder’s numerous barcode technology applications, particularly when despatching using barcodes (Barcode Despatch)

Well, now it doesn’t!! If your despatch operative has more than one product in a pickwave with the same EAN, when they scan the barcode on any of these items, the system will open a new popup and ask you to select which is the correct product variation before despatching the order.

Channel Hyperlinks now available on orders

You can now click on the Channel Order Numbers on the Orders Page within StoreFeeder and be taken directly to the corresponding order within your sales channel. Useful for checking payment information, client details etc, this feature is available for eBay, Amazon, Shopify and BigCommerce

App Updates

This one is just for our app users, our consolidated picking feature is now available on the Picking function on the StoreFeeder App

Consolidated Picking allows pickers to carry out a pre-sortation of items while picking to allow easier processing at the despatch stage

As an example, if you are picking 20 orders and you use 4 tote bins on a picking trolley, the system will split the orders so that the items for 5 orders go into each of the totes when picking, making sortation of items at despatch easier

e.g. SKU “ABC” – total pick = 26, place 4 in Tote A, place 7 in Tote B, place 13 in Tote C, place 2 in Tote D

Then when the items get to the despatch area, the packer knows that all items for one order are in the same tote and this reduces the time searching for additional items

Consolidated picking is available as a paper based system for non App users and details of this can be found here

Finally….

As always, if you have any suggestions for improvements or further ways in which we can benefit your business, we would love to hear from you.
