To get you a better search engine ranking, the code of SEO URLs logic was optimized.

We added Display filters only in the chosen category option, which allows merchants to select a few categories where to show a filter.

An option to add selected filters to the sidebar is available now, making the search more intuitive from a UX perspective.

Use scroll depends on block height for making it visible and easier to perceive accordingly.

Users are now proposing better navigation by showing disabled facets as grey and moving them to the bottom of the list.

Store admins can now generate free subscription trial orders from the backend to place orders on behalf of customers without their payment details.

Now it’s possible to create dummy offline payments, so the system can properly process notifications and urge customers to input valid payment details.

We also added an option to cancel subscriptions generated from the backend. It allows the system to stop processing free trial subscriptions in case no valid payment details are input to replace the ‘Free Trial payment’ after the trial period and three attempts to charge them fail.

We implemented notifications for free trial subscriptions to better your communication with customers.

With this update, customers can edit payment details for their subscription without having to log in via generated secure links.

A feature allowing the admin to control who is receiving the secure link is also added. With it, the store admin is able to set whether the secure link will be sent to All Customers, Guests only, or Disabled.

Now guest customers are allowed to edit a subscription via automatically created accounts.

We also fixed the issues with:

  • an error when trying to change card details in Braintree by Gene
  • impossibility to purchase the free subscription via Braintree by Gene
