In this update we’ve added a couple often requested features and added improvements to several areas of DPD.

Manual Purchase Creation

Vendors have asked for a way to create a purchase in DPD so that their offline sales, mail order sales, etc. can be accurately reflected in DPD and so they can send product updates to buyers who purchased through other channels. We’ve added a manual purchase creation page where you can build a purchase using existing products or a blank line item (useful for adding a service or other arbitrary charge), billing and shipping information, etc. Manual purchases will not charge the customer, but they will be reflected in your DPD sales stats and reports.

To create a manual purchase, go to the purchases page and click the Create button in the top right corner of the page.

Edit Existing Purchases

We’ve added the ability to edit the billing and shipping details to orders created through the shopping cart. We have also added an adjustment field where you can adjust the total charged if you have issued a refund outside of DPD.

Updated Music Player

We’ve updated the music preview player for mp3 files to not require Flash like the old preview player. We all kinda hate Flash.

Other changes in this update:

  • Added sending email to Paypal for Payments Pro transactions
  • Reordered vendor navigation to move sales group above store group, since product and sales are the two most common areas used
  • Improved URL validation on product/edit to prevent some newer TLDs from being blocked
  • Automatically float priority shipping countries to top of cart pulldowns
  • Fixed an error that could occur when a product has a configured upsell product deleted
  • Improved our geolocation updates
  • Improved storefront statistics calculation
  • Fixed issues with combo/bundle product sub-product ordering on the delivery page
  • Updated EU VAT Rates as needed
  • Server / Hardware Upgrades Coming Soon

    We will soon being upgrading the hardware and software that DPD runs on in order to provide faster service for everyone. These updates may require very short periods of time where the site will be unresponsive while hardware is switched over to newer equipment.

    We will always notify vendors prior to any expected interruption of service, and only perform upgrades that would result in an impact to service during non-peak hours of usage. We will post more updates to the blog here and Twitter as our update schedule evolves.
