Starting today, you can give your customers the absolute best ecommerce experience with our new checkout tools, designed to make it easier than ever for your customers to buy wine online.
In conversations over the past year, many of you have told us that speed, ease of use and security are your top point of sale needs. We’ve heard you, and today we are excited to announce the release of POS PINs.
Starting now, you can assign a unique PIN code to each tasting room staff member that they can use to quickly log in and process orders on your POS.
PINs brings improved security and tracking to your POS, making it easy for you to assign unique login credentials to each staff member instead of relying on one shared username and password. It also increases the speed of transactions because staff won’t need to type in a long username and password - only a 4-digit PIN.
Based on your feedback, our team is working hard on more POS features and upgrades. Stay tuned for more on that coming soon!

You asked for it, we built it: Starting today, your Vin65 reporting tools are now simpler, faster and more powerful. Over the past several months, with your feedback, we have built new, more robust reporting functionality in Vin65. These tools enable you to quickly and more easily run reports, especially on large datasets. You can now:
Customize your reports on the fly with flexible filters & columns
No action is needed on your part: by accessing the Reports tab in the Admin Panel, you will automatically be using the new tools. Note that the old reporting interface will continue to be available for 6 months so that you can become 100% comfortable with the new tools.
If you currently use custom reports, they will move to the new interface in the next stage of development. For now, you can access your custom reports through the old reporting interface.
Update: Google reCAPTCHA is live but action is required to turn reCAPTCHA on for blogs and product reviews.
Many of you have let us know about issues you were experiencing with spam on forms, 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 forms, product reviews and blogs. Here's what it looks like:
Adding reCAPTCHA on Forms
To add reCAPTCHA to a new or existing form on your website, simply add a new form question and select "Google reCAPTCHA" as the question type. The reCAPTCHA box will now appear at the bottom of your form. Learn More>
Adding reCAPTCHA on Product Reviews and Blog Comments
As customers demand more flexible wine clubs, you need tools that make it easy for you to meet their expectations. That's why we've added the ability for you to run clubs based on member signup month.
Your members won't have to wait for the next scheduled shipment - which could be months away - they can start receiving their wine immediately. Processing clubs by signup month also allows you to run smaller batches of orders more frequently, rather than doing large club runs a few times a year.
To process your wine club by signup month, simply select one or multiple months from the new Member Signup Month dropdown menu in the Shipment Setup tab in the club processing window. This will filter in members who signed up in your chosen months across all years. Want to continue to process your club regardless of signup month? Simply select "All months" from the menu.
Offering wine club delivery on a rolling basis is just one more way you can provide a more customer-centric experience, that converts more new members and retains existing ones for longer.
We have adjusted the design elements of our email receipts to make the information easier to understand for your customers. This adjustment includes shifting the Payment Details section closer to the order information, and adding lines to better separate the details of the order.
In addition, on POS receipt, if you use our 'Tax Included' feature, these now show properly on the print receipts.
We have updated our email system so all emails are sent through SendGrid. This improves deliverability and reduces bounces, and we have also updated the UI around the Send Mass Email function to add clarity on how to ensure your lists are sent with the highest success rate.
