GBS 3.5: Voucher and Deal Previews, Free Shipping, Gifting Management
We are officially releasing v3.5 today which offers several new feature additions and improvements for your social commerce site. These include such things as voucher and deal previews, free shipping, improved gifting options, and report pagination.
Voucher and deal previews
Previews for vouchers and deals were a highly requested feature by our users. For all of you who voted up that feature request, you’ll be pleased to see that these new options are built directly into v3.5. When enabled by the administrator, both voucher and deal/product previews can be accessed from the merchant dashboard (see image below using new GBS ecommerce theme for WordPress). To enable this feature, simply select the option to show private previews when editing or creating a new deal/product.
Per our users’ requests, we’ve expanded the new shipping options released in v3.4 to include free shipping. If your product has a flat rate of $0, the shipping total will now display to the customer during checkout and shipping address will be collected.
Based on user feedback, we’ve made an improvement to gift purchases. Site administrators now have the ability to resend a gift notification or modify the email address for which a gift was intended.
The more successful your social commerce site becomes, the more sales you make and the larger your reports grow. As the reports get larger, they can add more stress on your server. To address this, we’ve added pagination and defaulted to only display one hundred records at a time. If you’d like to reduce that default amount, you can easily modify the value through GBS’s excellent filtering system.
