This video will walk you through the most important changes, including some essential checks you need to make for the Amazon API and earning commissions:
Hurry up then…. what is new?
I have 9 major feature highlights for this version and roughly 65 total features, fixes and improvements.
Fresh Store v10.1 Key New Features
- New Amazon API Integration
This is the boring but important one.. Amazon have created a new v5 of their PAAPI (Product Advertising API).
In simple terms, this is how your store talks to Amazon to get the product details, and we needed to update the code to do it.
It was a big job, but it’s all done now, and all you need to do is make sure your Amazon API Keys and links are working (see the video).
- Custom Products!
This is the big one!
You can now add ANY kind of product to your store, using Custom Products.
You can use this to add products from any online shop with an affiliate program (e.g. Etsy, Walmart)
Or, you can use it to sell your own products and take payments directly (e.g. via PayPal).
Check the video for the full details.
- Customer and Email Export
The export feature for the emails you collect has now been improved to contain the signup date, IP address and more info.
You can also sort the emails now by date.
- Related Products on eBay Pages
On an eBay single product page, you can now add related products. These can be custom products, other eBay products or Amazon.
- Instagram Social Media Link
There is now an icon and option to add Instagram to your store.
- Improved FreshAdmin search feature
You can now search all places inside your FreshAdmin dashboard, and even search through your parameters and settings!
- eBay Products in RSS Feeds
Your store RSS feeds now include eBay products.
- New Amazon Locales
You can now build Amazon stores for Turkey and the United Arab Emirates (this last one is potentially a BIG market!)
- A better Google Analytics integration!
The old way was tricky.. So we replaced it with a new, easy way to add Analytics reports to your store.
