Changes in this release (Tradevine)

Trade Me – OPEN Listing Count

If you use multi-variant-listings, it was difficult to know how many open listings you had that counted towards your listing cap or plan limit (as a whole MVL group only counts as 1 “listing”). We’ve made this easier by showing you on the dashboard and plan page how many individual Trade Me listings you have as well as how many are counting towards your cap:

The active listing count is the number of listings on Trade Me, where each variant is counted individually.

The number of listings that contribute towards your cap (Trade Me listing cap or Tradevine plan cap) is the number of active listings, but all listings in the same listing group are counted as a single listing. The more multi-variant listings you make, the greater the difference between this number and the active listing count.

API

We have added the following fields:
Pack List: ExternalClientData – a 500 character string field for API consumers to store any data they wish relevant to client applications e.g. JSON fragment.
Sales Order: ExternalClientData – (as above)

 

Changes in this release (My Products)

Trade Me – PRODUCT SAVE

We had an intermittent issue which required some users to have to click Save twice in order to save their product. We’ve introduced a fix which should make this less likely to happen.

Trade Me – PING

In My Products, we have replaced the Pay Now branding with Ping which is our new payments platform.

Tradevine and Heartbleed

In the last week a security flaw known as Heartbleed has become news across the Internet.

The Heartbleed Bug is a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. This weakness allows stealing the information protected, under normal conditions, by the SSL/TLS encryption used to secure the Internet. SSL/TLS provides communication security and privacy over the Internet for applications such as web, email, instant messaging (IM) and some virtual private networks (VPNs).

The Heartbleed bug allows anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software. This compromises the secret keys used to identify the service providers and to encrypt the traffic, the names and passwords of the users and the actual content. This allows attackers to eavesdrop on communications, steal data directly from the services and users and to impersonate services and users. [Heartbleed.com]

Although the security flaw effected a large portion of internet services (estimated at two-thirds of all websites), Tradevine does not use OpenSSL and was therefor not affected.

However, a number of the services Tradevine partners with were potentially at risk.

Each partner has since patched the security flaw, and Tradevine have taken steps (such as updating passwords) to insure Tradevine, and our customers data are completely secure.
