What’s New in Vend: February


Happy February Venders! This month we’ve got some important updates to Vend Register, a few bugfixes, and an update on what we’re working on thanks to all of your feedback.

Updates to the Register iPad app – Here’s a look at the latest updates and features we’ve added to Vend Register this month. Don’t forget, our team is making continual improvements to Vend Register, so we highly recommend enabling automatic updates on your iPad. You can do this by going to the Settings app, scrolling to ‘iTunes & App Store’, and under the ‘Automatic Downloads’ section, turning on ‘Updates’. Check out the full list of updates below.

  • You can now add customers to a sale from the Payment screen before processing On Account, Layby or Loyalty sales.
  • This version of Register also includes our first ever support for Spanish language speakers using iOS Localisation. (Please note: This is currently only applicable to the Vend Register iOS app).

Feedback – We’re always looking for new ways to improve Vend and the way our retailers use it. We take the feedback you give us very seriously, which is why we’ve already made some changes based on your comments from our most recent customer survey. Thanks to you, we’ve improved our third party integrations and the stability of them, changed the way customers earn loyalty, and improved how Vend and our support team handle errored sales. Your feedback also helped us identify some other areas for improvement, which we are currently working on, including:

  • A new reporting module
  • A new inventory module
  • Improved hardware process
  • Improved stability and experience with our iPad app

A lot of the updates and features we’re working on will be released very soon, so make sure you check back for updates!

Bugfix – Fixed an issue where searching would slow down with larger product quantities.

Bugfix – Fixed an issue where a deleted product would still be added to a sale when the barcode was scanned.
