Latest Updates: August Edition (DX Courier integration, eBay Best Offers, Amazon Prime order flag, plus more)

As part of our August updates, we are proud to announce a new integration, and several new additions and improvements to our service.

Further details can be found in our accompanying knowledgebases.


New Integration

We are pleased to announce our newest courier integration: DX.

We now fully support DX Business to Business services. To integrate your DX account to StoreFeeder, see this guide:

Knowledgebase: How to Integrate DX

 


New Features

eBay Best Offers

We now offer support for ‘Best Offers’ on your eBay listings. As part of your payments and default values, you can set your min and max prices

To enable best offers, go to the ‘Payments and handling’ tab of an eBay listing, and you will be able to toggle Best Offers, choosing the minimum best offer price to set on your listings. Only accepted offers will be downloaded into StoreFeeder.

You can also set a Best Offer Auto Accept Price, so when a customer makes a best offer of that price or higher, the order will be automatically accepted.

Don’t forget to check the values you have for your existing eBay listings.

Supplier due dates

We have added the option to set a lead time for each of your suppliers in order to calculate due dates for purchase orders.

You can find this option on the ‘Edit/View supplier’ page, enter a number of days, and this will automatically adjust the due date on any PO raised for this supplier by that number of days.

If no value is set, it will default to one day.

 


Additions and Improvements

Amazon Prime Orders

StoreFeeder now supports Amazon Prime orders across many of our features and pages.

When an Amazon Prime order is imported into StoreFeeder, it will now be flagged as such. You can filter for your Amazon prime orders in the Orders Overview and Picking pages.

Additionally, you can now include Amazon Prime orders as a criterion for Shipping Rules.

Preserve Sales setting for eBay listings

We have added an option for your eBay listings, which will prevent any updates except for inventory levels being made to eBay listings that are currently part of an active sale.

The Save and Upload button on the Listing Details pages will be hidden while this setting is switched on, and the listing is part of an active sale.

You can find the toggle in your eBay integration settings:

CSV Order Import: New Company fields

We have added 2 new fields that can be mapped when uploading your orders, Billing Company and Shipping Company.

When you import an order with these fields mapped, the billing and shipping address company names will be visible in shipping and billing address details.

Change calculator for offline payments

When you create a new order with an offline payment, we have added a handy change calculator.

When an amount is typed into the Cash received field, the change to give to the customer will be automatically calculated.

Alternate PayPal Email Address for eBay Listings

For our customers who utilise different transaction rates offered on different PayPal accounts, we have added the option to override the email address associated with particular eBay listings in StoreFeeder.

We have added a PayPal Email Override options to:

  • The eBay Listing Import Export page
  • The ‘eBay Settings’ tab on any eBay listing
  • On the Payment Settings

By using any of these options, you can control the PayPal account you wish to use for each of your listings.

Create New Products in Mirakl Marketplace from StoreFeeder

Where previously you could only create Mirakl listings for existing product EANs, we have built in the functionality to create listings for wholly new products.

A new ‘Edit’ option has been added to Mirakl listings where you can input images, attributes, and product descriptions, before saving your listing and uploading it to channel ready for internal approval.

For information on this feature, and how to integrate your Mirakl store, see

From all of us here at StoreFeeder, we wish you an enjoyable and productive remaining few weeks of Summer. Look out for our next set of updates at the end of this month. Happy selling!

StoreFeeder Workshop Event – Have your say

We would like to invite you all to share in an exciting opportunity with us. In the last few years, our business and yours have grown exponentially together, and to further develop the relationship we have with our clients, we are planning to hold one or two workshop events in the coming months.

The purpose of these would be:

  • To give you an opportunity to meet some of our team
  • To participate in Q&A sessions
  • To demo our new features and to provide additional training on existing ones
  • To introduce prospective new clients to StoreFeeder
  • For us to better understand the needs of your businesses, and tailor the future development of StoreFeeder accordingly
  • To detail the roadmap for our future development

If you are interested, please take a few moments to answer some questions, and email your response to events@storefeeder.com.

  1. How many people from your company would you like to attend?
  2. How far would you be willing to travel? StoreFeeder is based in the Midlands, so is a location in the Midlands convenient for you, or would two smaller events in both the north and south be more ideal?
  3. Is there any particular training you would like to receive, or any further assistance we can offer?
  4. Are there any special requirements we should be aware of?

Please include any additional information or suggestions.

We ask that you respond as quickly as possible, as the earlier you register your interest, the higher your chance of securing a place at the event. We will be sending out invites as soon as we can.

 

We look forward to meeting you.

Latest Updates: June Edition Part 2 (New Purchase Order Requisitions Feature & General Improvements)

Our latest release is about to go live, and we are proud to announce another major feature to make the managing of your business run even more smoothly and efficiently, along with several service and functionality improvements.

Here are the updates in brief, due for release soon.

 

New Features

New Purchase Order Requisitions Feature

This feature has been designed to save you a huge amount of time when raising your purchase orders. We have added a new ‘Requisitions’ tab to the ‘Purchase Orders’ page.

Where previously, you would have to access the page for each of your suppliers to raise a Purchase Order, the Requisitions feature will allow you to do it all from a single page, all calculated from your current levels of stock.

The page can be split by supplier or warehouse, and will suggest which products you need, recommends the required quantities for each of those products. If you receive an order which would put one or more of your products out of stock, a requisition would be raised to order more of that product.

Each purchase order raised by this feature is a fully adjustable draft, and will require your verification before it will be sent off to your suppliers. At StoreFeeder, we will never automatically send a purchase order without your permission.

Improvements

API Improvements

You can now create multiple warehouse zones through the rest API.

For more information, see our API documentation.

Dashboard Improvements

By request, and to better display your sales analytics, the dashboard graphs now have a drop-down box allowing you to view your sales by revenue or units sold.

UK Mail Consignment Types

Along with Domestic, we now support ‘International’ and ‘UK Mail Packet Service’ consignment types.


Our mission statement here at StoreFeeder is to let our clients sell more, and work less. If you have any suggestions as to how we can continue to do this for you, please leave your comments on our UserVoice page.

If you are not a StoreFeeder customer and are considering joining us, or you are just interested in the service we provide, please get in touch at hello@storefeeder.com or visit our website.
