Release Notes – 9 May 2013

Release Date:   Thursday 9 May 2013 5:00pm

Implemented in this release

Sales Order and Invoice footer text

You are now able to add your own text and graphics to the bottom of the Sales Order Confirmation and Invoice PDFs. This is configurable via the Trade Settings screen. This is useful for custom payment details or adding terms and conditions.

Listings screen layout

We have improved the layout on the Trade Me Listings screen:

  • start date has been added
  • withdrawn listing indicator
  • a More info link which shows
    • the method used to create the listing
    • the Trade Me success fees
    • the Gallery Plus status
    • the time the listing was last checked by Tradevine

Ignore Feedback for a product

On individual listing rules you can now override the global settings so that feedback is not placed.  You can also choose to ignore customer feedback by product.

Default Listing comment

It is now possible to define a listing comment that will automatically be added to all new listings.  The comment will be added a few minutes after the listing has been made.  The first time you define the global comment it will also be added to active listings.

Ad-hoc Listing comment

In addition to the default listing comment you can add a comment to active listings at any time.  You can only do this once for each listing.

Trade Me customer reminders

The Trade Me customer reminders for missing addresses and non-payment are now based on working days instead of calendar days.

New Sales Channel filters on Sales Orders and Shipment’s screen

We have modified the filters for the Sales Order and Shipment screens to include the Trade Me Channel and Shopify Channel.

Trade Me listing failure reasons

The product’s listing rule now displays the reason a product failed to list.

Authenticated Trade Me Bidders when importing active listings

When importing Active Listings we can now detect the Authenticated Bidder setting

Declined Trade Me FPOs

We can now detect when members decline an FPO. This means that we can now immediately relist a product when the offer has been rejected by all recipients, rather than having to wait until the offer time has elapsed.

Trade Me listing quantity adjustments

Trade Me listings with Buy Now Only quantities greater than one, were being withdrawn when the available stock quantity dropped below the listing quantity (if the auto-withdraw setting was on). Now the listing is only withdrawn if there is no stock, otherwise the quantity is re-adjusted on the active listing.

Xero Tracking Categories

It is now possible to map a Xero tracking category option to each of your sales channels, as well as manual sales orders. This helps you run reports in Xero which group the revenue by sales channel. You will need to configure tracking in Xero and then map these in Tradevine.

API – Create Sales Order

It is now possible to create a sales order through the API. The sample application has been updated to include an example of how to do this. Please also check out our documentation.
