Creation of price slabs under a tax class
On the path Products -> Edit Tax type, you can see a revamped Tax view page. It contains the tax values for respective states and the price ranges for which they are defined.
You can now define different tax slabs for a type of product on the basis of its selling price. For example, you define a tax type for APPARELS and set the VAT 5% for the products having selling price upto Rs 5000, and charge VAT 10% for the products having selling price between Rs 5000 and 15000, and so on.
To import the tax configuration, first download the import file template as shown in the steps below:
Please note: By default a tax type definition range would be from Rs 0 to Maximum. You can create price slabs for tax variation by importing it.
It is important for you to understand that the range definition must be continuous, that is, if the first row has end price set to 5000, the next row must begin with the same value. For example, for every Tax Type code and State code, define a tax range, start price=0 and end price =5000, the next row contains start price=5000 and end price=15000. Also, for the final row, which defines the maximum limit, set the end price as any large numeric value (greater than the start price in the row of course) like 99999. Don't worry! It would not restrict the maximum price to this value but allow even higher priced transactions.
Then import the file.
Advantage: The system auto identifies the tax levied, VAT or CST, on the basis of its selling price range and generate a correct tax values on the sale products.
Introduction of Channel Inventory Formula Editor
You can easily manage the visible inventory on a particular sale channel by editing the inventory formula on the Editor available on the path Channels -> Channels -> Edit Details
Application of the new inventory update formula can be tested right away to reduce the possibility of incorrect inventory reflection.
If you want to update the inventory count of a particular product on all your sale channels, you can access the product page, select a particular product and click on
This action will forcefully update the inventory count of that item in the next inventory sync process.
Reconfigure your channel Shopify
Don’t press the panic button if you see the Shopify connectors broken on your configured channel. Due to some changes with the application, you need to re-configure the same. Follow these steps:
On the channel details page, edit Shopify, and click on the connector icon.
Enter your shopify store URL.
And just as you are redirected, enter your Admin name and password.
Click on login, and your channel is set!
Ease of disabling the inventory sync of a particular product
Uniware gives you the freedom of selecting the products whose inventory count must be synced on the channel. The other products, which are not required, can be easily disabled on that sale channel.
Follow these simple steps:
· On the path Channel -> Product Mapping, access the Linked/Sync Enabled tab and select the product.
· The ‘Edit’ button appears as soon as you select a particular product.
Please note: If you select more than one product, EDIT button would disappear since multiple selection would only allow sync inventory and delete product actions.
· The Edit window that appears on the Edit button click has ‘Disabled’ set to false. Click on the slider button to set it true and disable the product inventory sync on this channel.
You can also block some specific inventory which ensures a minimum number of stock count of this particular product to be sold on this channel only. The total inventory count reflection will be influenced by the blocked inventory count.
Channel order sync status
At any time during processing of an order, Uniware gives you an option of verifying the current status of that order on the sale channel at that instant.
On the path Orders -> Orders, you select one or multiple orders and click on the button to fetch the current order status.
Its advantage: Saves you the effort of processing the orders which no longer exist on channel or have been cancelled there.
This implementation has been specifically made for the channels such as Snapdeal, Flipkart, Homeshop 18 and Naaptol.
Activity log for Order processing
The Order details page (which can be accessed just by clicking on the Sale Order number or Shipping package code on Orders page) will now contain an Activities tab. It records all the latest actions and comments, if any, made on that Sale order/ Shipping package in the chronological order.
You can easily identify the user comments made at any stage of the order processing life cycle.
Export Sale Orders - filter "Shipping Providers" now require a manual entry
On the path Tools -> Exports, when you select the export type as "Sale Orders", please note that in the filters you have to make a manual entry of the Shipping Provider Code (it is as visible on the shipping package), unlike the previous process of choosing it from the available list.
Catalog sync is now available on Prestashop.
