Welcome to the latest Release Update blog post.
Understandably there is a lot of concern surrounding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic for many businesses out there and I hope each and every one of you are managing to push through these tough times.
Despite these troublesome times, StoreFeeder is in the very fortunate position where we have still somewhat been able to continue business as usual and bring you an update today that's full of exciting new features.
As always, there has been a lot of work in the background but there have been some great updates and new features released this month, the highlights of which are below:
Shopify Integration Update
As you may or may not know, Shopify are making changes to the way they interact with third-party software; it's likely that you would have been contacted by Shopify about this if you have an integration for Shopify set up on your StoreFeeder account.
Some of our users have been in contact with us, asking what exactly we are doing about this? Well, the answer is, we're making the changes necessary to make sure there isn't interrupted service for Shopify users on StoreFeeder.
In fact, as of this update, we have already rolled out the first set of changes to the integration. Fret not though; for our users, there will be no noticeable difference in the way the integration works so there's nothing for you to be doing differently.
We'll be sure to keep you up to date with the changes we make to keep up to date with Shopify. The next time it's mentioned will likely be the completion of the changes in any case, so I look forward to giving you that good news then!
BluePark Safe Place
Good news Bluepark users! We now import your Bluepark customer's designated safe place as part of the order import.
When an order is imported, if a safe place has been specified on channel, it will now appear in the 'Special Instructions' of the order in StoreFeeder.
Adding Additional Information to DPD Labels
For our DPD users, you can now add additional information of your choice to your DPD labels, if you so wish. A single option from the list below can be selected on each of your DPD shipping methods:
- Order Number
- Order Number and SKU's
- Order Number and Packaging Size
- Order Number and Shipping Method
- Order Number and Order Weight
- Order Number, Packaging Size and Order Weight
You can choose to have additional information on your DPD labels by editing your existing DPD shipping method's and selecting one of the options from the "Show Additional Information" dropdown box pictured below:
Resetting Purchase Orders
Some purchase orders are made over a period of time; say you raise one this month but that purchase order may stay open until late April and in that month period you may find you need to order extra items from the supplier. Originally, StoreFeeder wouldn't let you reset the status of a purchase order, meaning you couldn't modify or resend purchase orders that had already been sent. As of this update, that is no longer the case.
We've added a button to the 'Edit Purchase Order' page that will allow you to reset a purchase order's status back to 'Draft' as long as it isn't in 'Completed' state. When in 'Draft' status, the order will be amendable and re-sendable.
The handy new button can be found by opening any Purchase order that isn't in 'Completed' or already in 'Draft' status. Once on the 'Edit Purchase Order' page, you'll be able to see the 'Reset Purchase Order Status' button in the top right corner of the page as shown below:
There have been some great new features and fixes implemented this release and we hope you find them useful in one way or another.
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.
