Today saw the latest round of upgrades and new feature releases to StoreFeeder, so here is a brief overview of some of the main changes that are now live within the software
NEW – Multi-Select Filters on Grids
A new type of filter has been added to the grids used in StoreFeeder to display tabulated information.This filter allows you to select multiple values at once rather than being limited to filter just based on a single value.
Currently this has only been implemented on the Outstanding Orders grid on the Picking page, but we’re planning to roll it out to other grids in the coming weeks.
UPGRADE – Shipping Rules – Criteria Weighting
We’ve added an advanced option to Shipping Rules which allows you make some of the criteria in your rules more important when StoreFeeder is deciding which rule to apply.
This new feature is totally optional, and if you choose not to use it then your Shipping Rules will continue to function exactly as before.
For more information about this new feature please see the Knowledge Base article by clicking here
NEW – Redownload Orders
The ‘Delete’ button for external orders (i.e. orders that have downloaded from channel, rather than orders created in StoreFeeder) has been re-labelled to ‘Redownload’. This is to help make it clearer that clicking that button will cause the order to be deleted from StoreFeeder, but that it will redownload into StoreFeeder, provided that the order still exists on channel, hasn’t been despatched on channel and that the order is less than 7 days old
So, there you go, a roundup of the main upgrades and new features from the latest software release.
If you have any questions or need any assistance with any of these, please contact the StoreFeeder Support Team who will be happy to help you

We have spent the last month writing a new Magento API for StoreFeeder that was released last week. This new API is for use with the Community Edition of Magento and has improved, as well as added, performance for listing to and managing your Magento Stores.
We have also added the improved support for configurable products on Magento and added the independent attributes with an updated grid to the listings page. This feature allows you complete control of the variants that you are listing as well as treating the variants on the listing separately from the existing ones set on the product.
If you are using the current Magento API you will see a message informing you to contact our support team on 0843 5236 610 for more information. For more information on Magento Community click here.
In a previous post I discussed Magento integration for multi-channel ecommerce and how StoreFeeder can help with your Magento ecommerce operation, but let’s take it to the next step…
In order to allow a system such as StoreFeeder to connect with your Magento store you will need to set up something called an API user along with an associated role. An API is the means by which software can communicate with each other.
We’d just like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We’ve been busy with developments over the last year and we’re looking forward to unveiling even more next year.
