Welcome to the latest Release Update blog post.
The weather is certainly picking up, I've got my shorts and sandals out that's for sure! I hope you've all been getting on great during this April month; our second update this month is primarily focused on a lot of internal changes but that doesn't mean there aren't still a few things to shout about.
As always, there has been a lot of work in the background but there have been some great updates and new features released in this update, the highlights of which are below:
Commercial Invoice Generation
We know that, since Brexit, a few couriers have been asking that you are able to supply a commercial invoice for international orders. The good news today is, you'll now be able to generate these through StoreFeeder!
Generating a commercial invoice for an order is done in a very similar way to generating a CN23; it's done by first, going to the "Order Shipping" tab, found on the left hand side of the "Edit Order" page.
Once on the "Order Shipping" page, you should see a section titled "Paperwork"; it's under that section that you will see an option to "Print Commercial Invoice".
Please bare in mind that, in order to print a commercial invoice for an order, it must meet the following criteria:
- The order only has recognised products
- All products have HS codes
- All products have prices
- All products have a product type description
- All products have a country of manufacture
- All products have a weight
DHL Parcel UK Deferred Service Support
I'm sure there's a few of you out there that have been waiting for this - we now support DHL Parcel UK's Deferred Services.
If you weren't already aware, using a deferred service makes it possible to create a label with a date that's like Sunday, which is normally not possible by the standard process of booking collection. If that's something that interests you then you may want to see if you can get it enabled on your DHL Parcel UK account.
To use these services in StoreFeeder, you'll first need to flick a switch on your DHL Parcel UK integration that can be found here:
Once that's done you'll need to create shipping methods for the new services which, if you need a refresher, the guide can be found for here: https://support.storefeeder.com/hc/en-gb/articles/360007739497--Creating-A-Shipping-Method
The supported services (along with their service codes) are as follows:
- Parcels Deferred (118)
- Bagit Small 1kg Deferred (119)
- Bagit Medium 2kg Deferred (120)
- Bagit Large 5kg Deferred (121)
- Bagit XL 10k Deferred (122)
- International Deferred (123)
Adjustments Report Update
This is a rather small quality of life update for those of you that use our adjustments report, we now include a link to the purchase order that's delivery resulted in an adjustment being made.
For those of you who haven't used our adjustments report before, it can be found here:
The adjustments report allows you to have an overview of all adjustments made during a specified time frame. It also allows you to filter by things such as user, so you can see adjustments made by a certain user or description, so you can see adjustments made for certain reasons like deliveries.
The change in this most recent update means that in the "Reason" column, if applicable, there will be a link to the purchase order associated with the delivery that caused the adjustment 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.
The StoreFeeder Team
