Welcome to the October 2021 release of Better Commerce. There are several updates in this version that we hope you will like. Some of the key highlights include: 


  1. Email Notification: A notification system has been put in place to add multiple business scenarios under which an email notification requires to be triggered.  
  2. Repost to OMS: There can be scenarios when an order is not pushed automatically to the OMS from the Commerce Hub platform. With this release a provision has been added to repost the order to the OMS with a single click.

eCommerce Enhancements 

  1. Subscription-Generate Fulfillment Retry, and Alert Configuration: When subscription job fails in morning, this retry process will automatically replay the fulfillment order creation function and this will be retried for 3 times. When the subscription web job fails to create fulfillment orders, system sends out an alert email to the configured users.

  2. Repost Order to OMS: There can be situations wherein an order has not triggered to the Order Management System. For such instances the Commerce Hub order detail comes up with a new action button ‘Repost to OMS’. This action validates the order and reposts it to the OMS making it easier for the order fulfillment team to proceed with the order.

  3. Return Changes: The return line can be accepted or rejected while reviewing an RMA request. With the new change in this release, the platform will only refund the amount for the accepted return lines and disregard the rejected lines.

  4. Email Template Detail Screen UI: The detail screen to set up email template has been improvised to easily manage the localized text.

OMS Enhancements 

  1. Gift Note On Orders: WooCommerce orders can come along with a gift note. This information is captured and displayed with the orders in the OMS so that the picker/packer doesn’t miss out on this while fulfilling the order.

  4. Content snippet listing: The CH content snippet intermittently caused problem in loading. This has been addressed with this release and the list displays just fine.
