September Release Updates

Welcome to the September Release Update.

This release our devs have been working on a couple of major changes, one of which we hope will make listing to eBay a lot easier for our customers.

As usual we’ve had some behind the scenes improvements that aren’t immediately obvious and we’ve been laying the ground works for some changes that will make searching much better in the not too distant future (more to follow later).

eBay Business Policies

You may have already noticed that there have been some changes on the eBay listing pages on the Shipping, Payment & Handling and Returns tabs to wrap certain information into your existing business polices on channel.

This dropdown will let you choose your existing business polices and will then hide all of the information that is contained in the policy which means you don’t need to add it in StoreFeeder.

These can be set as part of eBay default values to make things even quicker. They can also be applied in bulk using a listing import\export to update.

These will apply to any new listings you create in StoreFeeder.  We do have an option to sync your Business Policies to any listing you have in StoreFeeder so if you are interested please contact the support team.

CN22 Changes

We have also rolled out the new CN22 to all of our customers.  The old 4 x 3 CN22 is now invalid and has been replaced by a new 6 x 4 version that is clearer and is compliant with new regulations.  This change has happened automatically.  We’ve had some feedback on a few extra tweaks our customers would like and these are being worked on as I speak

Some other things worth mentioning but without going into too much detail are:

We have increased the maximum number of orders than can be exported on the orders despatched report as customers found 1000 very limiting.

We added the time between despatches back into the Packer Productivity report as our customers found it useful

Added some new Royal Mail Service codes and changed the validation on a few to keep up to date with changes

When changing permissions for users these should now take effect straight away without the user having to log out and back in

We’ve been working on adding some more great features to our new version of the StoreFeeder app that’s currently in beta and due for full release soon.

We now prevent refunds of 0.00 from being uploaded to Xero and causing errors as occasionally our customers found it necessary but this is not allowed in Xero so they will be ignored


We’ve also squashed a few bugs as usual, most notably one that I think has affected us all recently where you were unable to create any reports or picking lists so hopefully we have seen the end of that one!

That’s about it for this release other than to say we hope business is going well for all of our customers and that you are all still staying safe.

As always we’ll keep working hard to provide you with the best service we can.

From all of us here at StoreFeeder, happy selling.

Latest Updates – Late February Edition

We’ve had a busy week here preparing for some new features into StoreFeeder.  Most of what we have been doing are “under the bonnet” improvements and preparation for some new exciting features you’ll find out about soon.  So this week’s blog will be somewhat short and sweet.

Improvements

Print Assist Settings

We have made changes to the way your Print Assist settings are being stored to reintroduce the intended functionality to save your preferences per PC instead of for all PCs you log into.  We now have a different method of doing this that shouldn’t be affected by browser security settings.

This brings with it a few limitations:

  • This method is incompatible with Private\Incognito browsing
  • It is browser specific so if you use different browsers you will need to set up your preferences for each independently
  • If you have a limited or locked down account on your PC then we may not have the required privileges to write\read the data
  • As with clearing cache and cookies, if you clear your browsing data the setting will be lost and need setting up fresh

So you may find on first login to a new PC that you need to set up your printers again but other than that you shouldn’t notice any changes in functionality.

Edit Order page – Optionally adjust totals when changing Shipping Method

We recognise the need that you may want to upgrade a customers shipping free of charge as a sign of good faith or for loyal repeat customers.  So we have added a new option to the edit order page

This will only appear on orders that haven’t been despatched.  The default will be to keep order totals the same.  If you wish to increase or decrease to match the shipping method then you will need to tick the box before changing.

API changes

There will be some changes to the StoreFeeder REST API that will follow in the next day or 2 with improvements to Product creation and Product Supplier creation.  These changes do not need any amendments to your code and should be transparent.

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