VSM Update Notice: Ecommerce Update for Shipping

Posted by Mark DeLong on Wednesday, March 15, 2017 | Tags: ecommerce, update
Posted Under: Important System Update

We've recently made an update to the VSM ecommerce platform that may have an impact on your site management.  It's related to the way that box sizes are referenced for shipping.  Previously there was a dropdown where you could select the volume that a box would fill.  Many customers found this confusing and it also limited the number of items that could be put into a box at 64. 

We've modified this to allow you to simply put in how many of a particular product will fit into a box using an input field that replaces the previous dropdown.  This should be much easier to understand and use.

This update only applies to real-time shipping and custom shipping with defined box sizes.  Other shipping methods, such as purchase based or order level, are not affected by this update.

If you have any questions or concerns please:

Managing Large Images in VSM

A recent enhancement to VSM will allow you to quickly see if any jpeg images you have uploaded are oversized.  Any images over 500KB from every folder in the images and documents location are presented for quick and easy resizing and recompression.  Oversized images can cause a website to load very slowly and increase your user bounce rate.  Users are very patient and waiting for an image to load on a slow connection can many times lead to a lost opportunity.
