What’s New in Vend – January


Hi Venders and welcome to 2015! I hope December was an extremely successful month for you, and can’t wait to see what #retailsuccess the coming year holds. To kick off 2015, we’ve got some updates to Vend Register, some important bugfixes, and an announcement about our new partnership with iZettle. Check out the full list below!

Updates to the Register iPad app – Here’s a look at the latest updates and features we’ve added to Vend Register this month. Remember, 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.

  • Register will now automatically locate supported printers on your network.
  • Errored Sales that haven’t uploaded to the Vend servers can now be accessed via the Online status menu.
  • You can now search for a product variant by SKU.

Vend + iZettle – We’ve got some exciting news! You can now accept debit and credit payments from iZettle, Europe’s number one mobile payments provider. iZettle’s secure wireless Chip & PIN reader seamlessly integrates with the Vend Register iPad App, avoiding the need to manually key in prices on your cash register or credit card terminal. Currently, iZettle is available in the UK, Mexico, Germany, Spain, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Brazil, and The Netherlands, with more countries being added this year. Here’s more information on how you can start using iZettle today.

Bugfix – Fixed an issue where reprinting a receipt would print the number set when the sale was processed.

Bugfix – Fixed an issue where the declined screen for payment integrations would timeout.

Bugfix – Fixed an issue where negative discounts would mistakenly appear on receipts.
