Release Notes – 7 September 2012

Changes to Tradevine

Release Date:   Fri 7 Sept 2012 5:00pm

New Product Views

We have given the Product List a big make over. There are now a few different views with an abundance of tabs to select under each of the following views:

  • Product Information
  • Suppliers
  • Trade Me Listing Rules
  • Shopify Products

The new views now include product thumbnails and inline labels.

You can also easily and quickly find the products, which do and don’t have rules or listings, as well as, which products have been configured for auto-listing etc.

Each view has its own set of search filters and quick action buttons. We will be adding more bulk actions to this in the future, e.g. bulk listing.

Trade Me Listing report

A new Trade Me Listing Detail report has been created, which provides a lot of information about all your listings.

The report can be configured to target specific date ranges, as well as individual products.

Saving your Shopify products

We have changed the way Shopify products are initially created, so they mimic the way Trade Me products are first created.

This is more apparent if you have multiple Shopify stores. When creating a new product the “other” stores will no longer be defaulted with the same product data, until you opt to add the Shopify settings to the product itself for that store.

Inventory Adjustment default

Now when you make an inventory adjustment to a product, which is not a stocktake or EOY reconciliation type adjustment, the quantity will default to 1, until you opt to change it.


In some circumstances, when uploading bulk photos we sometimes duplicated the image in error.  So we have changed the way that we handle bulk photo uploads.  The main effect is that if you want to replace previously uploaded photos then you must first re-import the Photo Identifier before triggering the bulk photo upload.  The procedure for importing of new photos is unchanged.

Blank line separation above the Listing Footer text

We now separate the global footer text on your listing from the listing description with a blank line.

Changes to Importing Products

The only change to this release affects exporting not importing. We no longer export the Photo Identifier on the product Core Details (now known as the Product Information export) export.

Key Bug Fixes

  1. When selecting all the products on the current view of the Product List, it wasn’t always possible to discern, which labels were or weren’t assigned.
  2. Previously when confirming a sales order or a shipment etc, the status would change, which meant it was not possible to get to the next document without exiting and opening the next document. We have fixed this now for most scenarios.
  3. We now retrieve our thumbnail images over https, so you should no longer encounter the mixed content warning on the Listings screen.

All of these improvements are based on customer feedback. We are planning to release further improvements on a regular basis. Your feedback is vital to ensuring that we’re working on the most important things first. If you have any suggestions, then check out our suggestions page where you can also vote.
