The StoreFeeder Net Despatch Integration

We have teamed up with the guys at Net Despatch and are pleased to announce that we now offer a full integration with their service covering both domestic and international shipments. You can now despatch your orders, create your shipping labels and get tracking numbers all at a click of button.

The Net Despatch software sits quietly behind the scenes and does its work and in most cases there is no need to change the way you currently despatch your orders through StoreFeeder. Labels be printed directly to your current thermal printer onto DMO labels or you can also choose to use integrated labels where the PPI and tracking information will be printed directly onto the label on your invoice. The tracking numbers (where applicable) are also recorded on the order within StoreFeeder for easy reference and tracking of parcels.

If you are currently a Royal Mail Despatch Manager Online (DMO) customer or have a Royal Mail Online Business Account (OBA) then you should already qualify for a Net Despatch account.

And here is the best part, this service is FREE!! So if you feel that Net Despatch is something that will help your business, get in touch with a member of the StoreFeeder support team on 0843 5236 610 to discuss the setup process.

StoreFeeder now supports eBay Click & Collect


Many of you will have seen the new Click & Collect service that is being marketed by eBay which allows sellers to offer a collection service through Argos stores across the UK.. Although this is available to invited sellers only at the moment, here at StoreFeeder we have a number of customers who have been selected, so we have developed the facility to offer this shipping option to your customers when eBay roll this out to all sellers.

If you have been invited to be part of the project then StoreFeeder can help you create and manage these listings and when the service is rolled out to all sellers, you can be assured that StoreFeeder is ready.

To use the service, you will need to have a UPS account that is integrated with StoreFeeder. When an order is placed and marked for click and collect, the item will be collected by UPS and delivered to the Argos store specified by the customer.

More information on the service can be found on eBay’s Click and Collect site.

StoreFeeder has a new Magento API

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.
