Improved experience for serialized item sales
When removing serial numbers from sale line items, the Remove button disappears once clicked to limit errors in the sale due to multiple clicks.
Notification for negative inventory during sales
When adding an item to a sale or increasing the quantity of a line item that would result in negative inventory, the warning message stays on screen until dismissed. This helps you keep track of inventory during sales and ensures negative inventory sales aren’t missed.
Login authentication updates
Updates to the login authentication process means a smoother login experience and no unexpected logouts.
Age restricted items update
If an age restricted item can't be added to the sale due to an incorrect PIN, a dialogue box will show the reason why and a prompt to try again or return to the sale. This leads to less confusion in the checkout experience for age restricted items and more visibility for sales staff and customers when adding these items to a sale.
Improved gift card export file
The gift card export is now generated from the gift card page for a more streamlined gift experience when managing gift cards. This export includes additional information on the gift card status, where it was purchased, the transaction ID, when it was last used, and in the case of online gift cards, the recipient’s email address.Learn more about gift cards
