Flexible Club Shipments with Our New Member Sign Up Field

Add more flexibility to your club processing with our new Member Sign Up Month field.

The next time you log in to Vin65, you'll see an additional Member Sign Up Month option under Shipment Setup in club processing. This allows you to filter in members based on the month they signed up for their club, across all years.

With the Member Sign Up Month field, you can more easily tailor your club processing to your customers' shipping preferences, or process your clubs in smaller batches on a more frequent basis. By filtering in only members from a certain month or months, you can ensure your members receive a shipment every 3 months, for example, instead of forcing them to wait for your quarterly shipment. No matter the time of year they join, they can enjoy your wine on a regular basis.

Google reCAPTCHA Added to Forms

In addition to adding Google reCAPTCHA to your blogs and product reviews, the tool has been added to forms as well to reduce spam caused by bots. 

reCAPTCHA will not be added to forms by default; if you would like to add reCAPTCHA to one of your forms, edit its fields and add the reCAPTCHA question type. Selecting this question type will add a required recaptcha box at the bottom of the form that a person must fill out. 

If you have a custom design on your forms, you may want to check with your designer before enabling reCAPTCHA.

Introducing POS Category Assignments for POS Profiles

The data on your POS needs to be well organized so your staff can focus on selling to your customers.

To make this easier, we're introducing assignments for POS Categories to POS Profiles, so you can display only the products you want within each of your POS Profiles.

When you add a new POS Category, make sure you assign it to a POS Profile (or a few!). Only the products within that Category will then be displayed on your POS. Similar to how you can currently arrange products within a Category, you will also be able to arrange the order in which your Categories display within your Profiles so you can choose which products your staff sees first. 

By default, all existing POS Categories will apply to all POS Profiles and you will not be affected until you go into either POS Categories or POS Profiles to modify the assignment settings. You can also assign Categories to your POS Profiles directly from the POS Profile section of the admin panel.

Learn more about assigning Categories in POS Profiles >

reCAPTCHA Improvement for Product Reviews and Blogs

Update: As of May 25, 2017 we will automatically enable this setting on your website. 

Last month you let us know about the issues you were experiencing with spam on product reviews and blogs. We recognize that this was frustrating for you, so we have now implemented a new Google reCAPTCHA tool that will prevent robots from submitting future spam to your product reviews and blogs. 

Since the way the widget displays may impact your custom design, you can temporarily toggle it on or off via your Website Settings, so that your designer has time to make modifications if necessary before you leave it enabled. We encourage you to adjust your design as soon as possible as this will only be a temporary setting. 

Watch a recording on how to enable reCAPTCHA > 

In the coming weeks we will be introducing reCAPTCHA on Vin65’s forms as well to prevent further issues. If you have any questions or concerns please contact
