Changes to Tradevine
Release Date: 22 June 2012 5:00pm
Multiple quantity listings in Trade Me
You can now list your products in Trade Me with a quantity of more than one. Multiple quantity listings only cater for a Buy Now. This is all configurable on the Selling Channels tab of each product.
You can also configure your products for multiple quantities by importing from file. The new fields in the Trade Me Settings file are:
- Trade Me Is Sold In Multiple Quantities
- Trade Me Sell Multiple Quantity
- Trade Me Is Shipping Price Per Quantity
Manual sales order approval for rural delivery or unrecognised addresses
We now provide the option to ensure that sales orders with either rural delivery addresses or unrecognised addresses require manual approval before the sales order can progress any further.
This helps you ensure the correct shipping costs have been applied, especially for rural delivery addresses.
The Dashboard now includes a Sales orders check address link to help you find these kind of orders.
Check out the Shipping panel on the Trade Me screen under the Settings menu, if this appeals to you.
Bulk mark your sales orders as paid
From the sales order list you can now mark multiple sales orders as paid with just one click of the Mark as Paid button.
If you are integrated with Xero, then it would be advisable to update your payments in Xero and let the system automatically update these in Tradevine and not use this feature.
Delete Product Photos
The delete button on the Photos tab of a product will now delete images even if they belong to active or closed Trade Me listings, The images will also be deleted from your Shopify products.
Import and export product Labels
Product labels applied to products are now included in the export. Labels can also be imported. Labels can be created, updated or removed from products via the import.
If you are importing then you will want to add a Label List column to your Product Core import file. Multiple labels will need to be separated by a comma. Label names which include a comma, should be enclosed inside double quotes.
View more than 10 Labels
You can now see all of your labels, whenever you view the list of labels to apply or remove from your products or orders etc.
Previously you could only see the first 10.
Dymo Shipping Labels
It is now possible to specify how many shipping labels you want to print for a shipment. The default quantity can be configured on the Trade Settings screen.
There is also now another field that can be used on your custom shipping label templates called FirstProductCode which prints the first product code of the shipment onto the label. Visit our DYMO Help page for instructions on how to add this field to your custom labels.
Next/Previous navigation through your Customers, Suppliers, Shipments and Goods Receipts
The ability to navigate to the next or previous record, has now been added to the customer, supplier, shipment and goods receipt screens. On the previous release we introduced the navigation to products, sales orders and purchase orders.
