Bottlenose has just released version 2.3 of our platform, which brings new features, improvements and fixes.

For Customers

Improved Visibility of Promotions

Customers who trigger a Promotion will now see the Promotion name listed with the order total in their cart, during checkout, and on their receipt. Also, if a Promotion has discounted a Product, the customer will see the original price of the Product and their savings in their cart.

Pre-Arrivals & Futures

Products with these attributes now offer an explanation to customers. Customize this copy in the Assets section of your Admin Area.

Improved Mobile Product Pages

The layout of Product Detail pages have been improved for mobile devices.

Products

We have implemented many features to improve how you interact with your Products.

View Products by Bottlenose vs Self-Managed

You can now view a lists of Products by clicking on the pie chart on your Products Dashboard. View lists of Products you're managing yourself, or those we're managing for you.

Product Category Requirement

Due to its importance to so many systems (case-discounting, shipping states, etc.), a category is now required for every Product available online. To go along with this, you can now quickly see which of your Products are missing a category and add one easily. Look for the "Unclassified Products Box" on your Products Dashboard

Recently Managed Products

You can now view a recap of recent Product Management performed by Bottlenose staff.

Product Alerts

If Bottlenose is unable to identify a Product you've provided to us to manage, we will let you know. View pending Alerts from your Products dashboard in the "Product Alerts" box.

Shipping Configuration

Ship-To States

You can now configure what Product categories will Ship where. Just navigate to your Shipping Configuration screen and click on the map.

Improved UI

We have improved the User Interface for the Promotion Engine, add clear descriptions of how each trigger and benefit works.

You can now set start and/or end date triggers for your Promotions. When set, Promotions will only be triggered during that time period.
