Vend is getting a color refresh!

As part of our continuous work to make improvements to the platform, we’re working closely with our friends at Lightspeed to update and make some visual changes to the platform.

Don’t worry, Vend’s features and functionalities aren’t changing; we’re just giving it a color refresh. In addition to being consistent with Lightspeed’s brand, the platform now offers an improved ‘dark mode’ feature on the Sell Screen — and the new colors make the interface easier to use! We know that it can take some getting used to, but rest assured that the color change will not impact the functionality of your store and there will be no disruptions to your business.
