What’s new in Vend: February

It’s hard to believe we’re already two months into 2017! And we’ve been keeping busy. Here’s what’s new in Vend this month.


Shopify improvements we’ve been hard at work making online sales with Vend and Shopify even smoother. Plus, we’ve got multi-outlet functionality for Shopify coming soon — allowing you to combine inventory from multiple outlets to display on your Shopify store! Stay tuned for updates.


User filtering — it’s now possible to find users faster by searching user names on the User screen, or the user switching window on the new Sell screen with an added search bar.


Updates to the new Sell screenwe’ve made some updates to make selling with Vend even smoother! These include:

  • Switching an outlet or register from the new Sell screen — instead of resetting your data, you can switch an outlet or register in a simple click from the navigation bar.
  • Totals in register closures — the sum of all payments are now visible as totals at the bottom of the register closure screen. If cash management is enabled, it will be included within this view.


Coming soon: Inventory Movements View — we’ve made some changes to how you’ll view individual products. ‘Product History’ will only show changes made to product info, like edits to the name or price — all inventory movements will be recorded in a new Inventory Movements View above the product history table. You’ll be able to view movements for each product and its variants, and easily identify potential reasons for discrepancies with a new, easy-to-interpret view.


Coming soon: Historical Inventory Reporting — we’re still working hard to let you report on your historical inventory data. Stay tuned for updates coming shortly!


EZ Gift Cardsour friends at Plastic Printers have a new line of gift cards! They’re pre-designed and aren’t customizable, but your store name, address, phone and website are included on the back. EZ Gift Cards are a great option if you’re getting gift cards for the first time — they’re super affordable and available in smaller quantities! Take a look.
