Overall Visual Improvements

You may have noticed that we have a new website. This change has been made to better showcase our newer features and reflect our growing business. You can expect the website to change more as we continue to refine the look and feel. Likewise, this blog and our API documentation have undergone a pallet swap to match the new colour scheme.

When you log into your StoreFeeder, you will notice a change in the way that figures are displayed on your dashboard. The statistics are now filtered by tabs, and we have added the option to display your units and averages. This is so your dashboard can display more complex data about your orders, and load quicker than before.

 

New Integration: Mirakl

The first of our two newest channel integrations is the Mirakl marketplace. StoreFeeder now fully supports many Mirakl hosted marketplaces such as Game and Halfords.

Functionality Improvements

We have made it easier to Book in and Write off Deliveries, by improving the Purchase Order Information page.

A button has been added to remove all written off stock from the purchase order, and the recalculation of line totals has been improved, and deleted line items will no longer appear.

Additionally, the default tax class of 20% has been changed. This value will now be dependent on the Tax Class value you have set for your products on the Product Information page. If your product has no Tax Class value set, the previous default will apply.

Knowledgebase: Booking in a Delivery

We have improved the layout and loading times of Despatched Order Reports. Data is now better displayed in defined columns, and the system will prevent exports of more than 1000 items to prevent the system from timing out and slowing your order processing.

We have made a slight change to our Magento logos, so orders from V2.x are more easily distinguishable from V1.x orders.

 

Coming Soon

We will soon be introducing a new Manifest Page, which will give you the option to view your outstanding or completed manifests separately. Additionally, you will be able to view a detailed rundown of each order in each manifest, and finally, we will be implementing the option to reprint or resubmit manifests.

Keep an eye out for when this feature goes live.

 


From all of us here at StoreFeeder, we wish you a productive and lucrative Easter. Enjoy the sunshine, and happy selling!

Latest Updates – March Edition

Our Major March release is now live, so here is a summary of the newest features and improvements to your StoreFeeder service.

 

New Features:

By request from one of our valued customers, a new field is now available on product pages: Product Special Attribute. This allows you to add additional information for products that can be displayed on invoices.

Knowledgebase: Product Special Attribute

For Enterprise level customers, we offer the Multi-Stock Location service. In your product information, you can assign multiple stock locations to a single product, and perform either immediate transfers in StoreFeeder, or produce transfer lists for your warehouse operatives.

Knowledgebase: Transferring your Stock Locations

 

Improvements:

For ParcelForce integration users, we have updated to ParcelForce’s newest API, and as part of this, character limits for addresses has been increased from 25 to 40.

We now import Amazon product tax codes (PTC) automatically for all your Amazon orders.

A new Save Cost Price to Product optional feature has been added to Purchase Orders. When you raise a Purchase Order, it will now automatically load in the costs of your products. If you then have to change the cost on the purchase order (such as when your supplier tells you the cost has increased), the adjustment will now automatically update your product price too. The On/Off switch for this feature can be found in your View/Edit Suppliers page.

Knowledgebase: Supplier Settings

 Performance improvements have been made to the way we performing Sending Shipment and Tracking Data to BigCommerce. Some of our customers had noticed issues with a small number of BigCommerce orders. This update should speed up the processing, and ensure the correct data is transmitted every time.

A change has been made so that when you Split an Order on the Edit Orders page, the Shipping Method and Packaging Size for that order will be automatically recalculated, so you won’t need to do anything more with it.

Visual changes have been made to Priority Orders, and we have included ‘A’ and ‘P’ stamps anywhere you can see your orders to signify if an order ‘Requires Attention’, or is a ‘Priority Order’.

Coming Soon

We are pleased to soon be adding Hermes to our growing list of courier integrations.

An improvement will be made soon to the Manifesting page.


We expect smaller updates to follow this one to bring in more new features and improvements.

Your feedback is important to us, so please let us know what you think. If there are any changes we can make to the quality of your service, or if you have an idea to save yet more time for your business, get in touch.

New Feature: Priority Orders

We have introduced a new feature into StoreFeeder: Priority Orders

There are orders from some services, such as Amazon Seller Fulfilled Prime, which require your immediate attention. These orders need to go out the door as quickly as possible, usually via next day delivery shipping, and it is important that these orders do not go unnoticed. From today, these orders will be labelled as ‘Priority Orders’ in StoreFeeder.

 

A box has been added to your dashboard to display the Priority Orders that are awaiting your attention.

On your Order Management page, Priority Orders will be instantly visible by their sunburst yellow background, and a new filter column has been added for orders of this type.

Your Shipping Rules will also incorporate Priority Orders. A new selection box has been added to include Priority Orders as a criteria to new or existing rules.

A filter tab has been added to your Picking page, so you can filter your Outstanding Orders, and create pickwaves of Priority Orders, speeding up your order processing.

 

This feature is currently only for use with Amazon orders, but we plan to roll this feature out to other channels in future updates.

We are also planning to include a feature that will allow you to specify Channel Shipping Methods as Priority, so any orders StoreFeeder imports with that Channel Shipping Method will automatically be marked as a Priority Orders.

We’ll keep you updated on when these features become available.

 


For more information of how to access these features with StoreFeeder, see our knowledgebase article.

Remember to include your suggestions for further developments on our User Voice page, and from all of us here, enjoy the Spring days, and happy selling!
