Release Notes – 13 December 2012

Release Date:   Thursday 13 Dec 2012 5:00pm

Implemented in this release

Bill of Materials (Kits)

It is now possible to create products that are kits. A kit is a product that is made up of several other products e.g. a mobile phone kit could consist of a case, a charger and a screen protector.  The components of a kit (case, charger & screen protector) are defined on the Bill of Material (BoM) tab of the parent product (mobile phone kit).

Parent products with a BoM must be non-inventory products. The component products can be of inventory and non-inventory type as desired.

The Available to Sell of the parent kit is calculated based on the component with the least Available to Sell, taking into account how many of each components are required in each kit.

Listings, sales orders and invoices will all refer to the parent product, whilst the shipments, pick-lists and packing-slips will refer to the component products.

If you are importing or exporting BoM type products, then you will be interested in the following new fields:

  • BoM Component Product Code – (Bill of Materials).
  • BoM Component Quantity – (Bill of Materials).
  • BoM Remove Component – (Bill of Materials).

Auto import Trade Me listings to Tradevine

As part of the normal 5 minute poll of Trade Me, we will now check all of your active listings.  If we find a listing that is not currently in Tradevine then we will automatically import it, provide we can match the details to an existing product/listing-rule combination.

New menu layout

We have given the top level menus a make-over. The text links at the very top of the screen have been replaced with icons.

Remove suppliers from products on re-import

It is now possible to delete suppliers from products during an import.

If you are importing with the intention of deleting suppliers from your products, then you will be interested in the following new field:

  • Remove Supplier Product – (Suppliers).

Labels button on Trade Me Listing Rule Product List views

The Labels button has been removed from the Trade Me Listing Rules view.

Key Bug Fixes

  1. If you were logged into Tradevine twice in two tabs in the same browser, then when you logged out of one session there were inconsistent results in the remaining session.
  2. HTML markup in product data such as name or description sometimes caused page crashes.

What’s Next?

  • We have started work on our own API so that other companies can hook into our software. Phase one will be limited to approved consumers and is likely to contain the ability to input new sales-orders and confirm shipments.


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.
