NEW - Apply Coupon Restrictions Using Bulk Upload Of SKUs/ISBNs
Coupons can be an incredibly effective way to increase online sales. IndieCommerce websites offer a
wide variety of coupon options

Recently, the IC team introduced a new feature that allows IC stores to bulk upload a list of ISBNs/ SKUs that you want a coupon to apply to. An example of this feature might be a list of “Staff Pick” titles that would qualify for a $5 price. The store would now have the option to upload the ISBNs in bulk that would qualify for the $5 price. Check out this page for more information on this feature as well as many other online coupon options

NEW - Local Store Inventory (LSI) Data Now Included In Pick-List
With IC and IL stores receiving a substantial increase in online orders, the IC team explored options to help stores with processing them faster. The ‘Pick List’ is a new feature available to IC and IL sites.

This list will pull orders and items waiting to be fulfilled based on parameters in the report set by the store. IndieCommerce stores can filter this list by order date, order status, and stock status. IndieLite Stores can filter this list by order date and order status.

LSI data now available in the pick-list includes:

  1. LSI Quantity (IndieCommerce Stores Only) - If the store has Local Store Inventory enabled, the quantity listed in the LSI file will appear here.
  2. LSI Section (IndieCommerce Stores Only) - If the store has Local Store Inventory enabled, the section the title is listed in the LSI file will appear here.
