Latest Release Updates – 4th December 2019

December 4, 2019


Harry James

Welcome to the latest Release Update blog post.

Black Friday weekend is over which means we can finally rest right? But wait, what's that coming over the hill? Christmas is coming and the geese may be getting fat but I'm sure you'll all join me in saying we're all working too hard to put on any weight!

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:

eBay Item Specifics Update

In a bid to make listing your products to eBay a touch easier we've rearranged how the Item Specifics section is ordered so that you can easily see the fields that are required, recommended and optional.

New required, recommended & optional grouping.

Of course, if you already have the required data filled out on the product you are listing, our "Automatch" feature does still exist at the top of the "Mapping Field" column. Clicking this will draw all information stored on the product in question and use it to fill the item specific fields to the best of it's ability.

I hope this helps to make assigning required item specifics a little less like a "Where's Wally?" book!

Product Tax Class Field Added to Listing Export

A handy addition to our listing import/export feature, you can now view all your listings assigned tax classes. You can do so by selecting the "Product Tax Class (Read Only)" option from the "Fields to Export" dropdown box on the "Listing Import Export" page.

The Product Tax Class option that will need to be selected before exporting.

Xero Purchase Order Export Updates

First of all, I'd like to thank the people who have provided feedback on the early version of this feature, it's been invaluable. We've listened to your feedback and have made a couple of changes to the feature we hope you'll find useful.

The first update is that you can now set up purchase orders that are in a status of "Sent to Supplier" to be exported to Xero. By default, the option to allow this will be turned off so you will need to switch the option on by clicking the toggle found on the "Channel Preferences" page of your Xero integration as shown below:

The other update we've made is that you can now set a start date for your purchase orders to start exporting on a per supplier basis. This means that if you set it to a date in the past then purchase orders for that supplier will be exported retroactively, whereas if you set it to a date in the future, your purchase orders from them won't start exporting until that date.

You can set the start date for each supplier by going to the "Xero Purchase Order Settings" page on your Xero integration, then use our date picker for each supplier you have set to export purchase orders.

Remember, you can't select a start date unless the Export Purchase Orders toggle is on for that supplier.

Please keep sending us your valued feedback about this feature; as you can see we do listen and try to implement changes where we can.

If you're a Xero user and are interested in becoming an early adopter of this feature then please get in touch with our support team and let us know.


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.
