  1. OneClick Log in and Impersonation (Log in as vendor)

    We have overhauled the login capability for you and your vendors with a OneClick login experience where a single link will allow you secure access to the app. You can also bookmark it for direct access.

    In addition, a vendor account is no longer required to view your vendor's dashboard. Impersonation allows you to easily switch to see any of your vendor's dashboards in a single click.

  1. Retry a failed payout using a different payout method

    You can now update the payout method and comment for a failed payout that was retried outside of the app.

  1. Redesigned payout capability for vendors

    Your vendors can now enjoy the same simplified workflows and enhanced visibility into payment statuses. This was previously only available for you but it is now also available for vendors.

  1. Control on Payouts for fulfilled or all orders

    Depending on your business, you may want to only pay your vendors when an order is fulfilled. This is now possible in payout settings on the payouts page.Β 

  1. Vendor Collections Sync

    Historically, for products to show up on your Shopify collections page, you had to manually create collections and as you add new vendors, this process can be tedious and not scalable. The team has worked hard to make the creation and maintenance of vendor collections automated for you.Β 

    This option is available for you under the profile tab in settings.
