Now that our new admin is out the door and stable for everyone in this DPD update we’re adding some features and tweaks requested by our vendors!
Added Ability to Disable Sale Notifications for Free Checkouts
You can now disable sale notifications for free checkouts by turning them off from the vendor profile. Basically, you can get no notifications, notifications for free and paid checkouts, or just notifications for paid checkouts.
To get to the profile go to the top right corner of the screen in DPD and select vendor profile from the menu.
Added Product Update Emails for Tangibles
Some vendors used product update emails to communicate with buyers about tangible item pre-orders, production updates, etc. so we made them available for that product type.
Just like every other product type, you can send a product update from the product’s details page by going to Products in the left menu and then clicking on the product name.
Added Text Areas on Portal index and Portal Login Pages
Vendors wanted to be able to insert text on the customer portal pages just like every cart page, so we added above and below page body text areas for this page.
You can get to these new text areas (and all the other text areas) by going to Settings > Checkout and clicking the edit Text areas button on that page.
Added Affiliate Fields to Order->Create and Order->Edit
You can now manually specify an affiliate and commission due for manually edited and created orders. DPD doesn’t do any Automatic calculation since thats done at checkout, but you can manually specify a payout if needed.
Added Option to Use UPS Negotiated Rates
By default, DPD quotes the “published” rates for UPS. Some vendors have special rates negotiated with UPS. They now have the option of quoting those rates to customers during checkout. If you have negotiated rates and want to quote standard rates, leave the option turned off!
Updated French Cart Translations
A native French speaking DPD vendor provided us with better translations, so we updated them! We always try to use translations provided by our native speaking vendors when possible.
