Pharmacy Module Updates
The first release of our Pharmacy Module to support our pharmacy retailers went live in April, after feedback we have now made this module even more powerful. This is an important module for the pharmacy industry with so many stipulations to sell items such as pain medication and cold, flu & allergy medication.
If you are a pharmacy retailer and interested in finding out more on this module please contact us.
Some important elements in this release include:
- Max Quantity per product – allow setting max qty at the category level as well as the current product level setting, essential for pain medications. We also have capability to allow double the quantity for half bottles of certain products.
- Migration Tool which allows resetting Max Qty at product level to zero – so that you can move to configuring Max Qty at the category level
- Updated web services and batch jobs to include orders that are awaiting approval
The basket expiry allows you to configure your online store so that a basket expires after a specified period of time. This upgrade is extremely beneficial for retailers that regularly run flash sales.
Previously if you set a brand promotion to run from Thursday to Sunday, a customer could have added a discounted item to their basket during the promotion but only completed the order on Monday after the discounted period ended. You can now set the basket to expire after a specified period of time so these orders are no longer valid

Payment Provider Integration Update & Checkout Security
Online scamming is on the rise and we are in continuous communication with our Payment Providers to ensure that we are staying on top of this challenging issue.
Our most recent release ensures that 3D secure is up to date and added further security checks to the checkout.
If you have any concerns in relation to your payment gateway and the security of your checkout please feel free to contact us.
