December 2023

Enhancements

1. Payfast Merchant subscription:

Initially, the Payfast payment gateway lacked support for Merchant Subscriptions
Explore Merchant Subscriptions:https://help.jungleworks.com/yelo/configure-customer-and-merchant-subscription-in-marketplace/#gsc.tab=0.We are pleased to inform you that we have expanded Payfast compatibility to include Merchant subscriptions, and the integration is now operational and functioning seamlessly.Additionally, we have implemented enhancements to handle false payment responses more effectively,  improving the overall reliability of payment processing.

 

2. Promo Codes in Open APIs:

The use of promo codes was not facilitated within the open APIs designed for order creation and retrieving bill breakdowns. We have now extended the support for promo codes to both of these APIs. This enhancement allows for more thorough integration of promotional features within the specified contexts, providing users with greater flexibility and functionality in utilizing promotional codes during order creation and bill breakdown processes.Explore Open Apis: https://docs.jungleworks.com/yelo/


3. Social Media Login Doc:

We have recently revised our helpdesk documentation for social logins to align with the latest updates from the Google Console. This ensures that our users have accurate and up-to-date information regarding social login integration, specifically in response to recent changes introduced by Google.

4. Product Description:

In our hybrid apps and the mobile version of the website, visibility issues occurred with product descriptions and images, characterized by an excessive amount of white space between the images and descriptions, impacting the overall presentation. We are pleased to inform you that we have successfully resolved these issues, ensuring an improved and seamless visual experience for users.

 

5. NOTP now works with OTP:

In the scenario where NOTP (Number OTP) is enabled alongside OTP (One-Time Password) verification, there was a logical inconsistency where the system prompted users for OTP during NOTP signups. We have rectified this logic, and now, if a user signs up using NOTP with OTP verification enabled, they no longer need to provide an OTP for NOTP signups. This adjustment ensures a more coherent and user-friendly signup process.


 

6. Single-Store Delivery Method:

Previously, in a single-store setup, users had to enable delivery configuration first from the delivery section and then separately from store configuration, an unnecessary step. We have streamlined this process, and now, in the case of a single store, users can control their configuration directly from the delivery section, eliminating the need for redundant steps.


7. Order Rating and Ongoing Orders:

We are excited to announce the integration of the order rating feature directly onto the merchant listing page, featuring a new and improved user interface. Concurrently, we have upgraded the ongoing order user interface to meet industry standards, providing users with a more intuitive and refined experience. This enhancement enables users to conveniently rate their orders directly from the merchant listing screen, further contributing to a streamlined and user-friendly interface. Additionally, a new ongoing order user interface has been introduced to enhance the overall user experience.

8. Listing Order for Saved Address:

Users can now benefit from a streamlined process for managing multiple addresses, featuring the convenient prioritization of Home and Work locations. The latest Home and Work addresses are automatically positioned at the top of the list, ensuring swift access to the most frequently used locations.
To illustrate, if a user has 3 Home addresses (H1, H2, H3 – with H3 being the latest) and 2 Work addresses (W1, W2 – with W2 being the latest), the pinned order will be as follows:

  • H3: Latest Home address is pinned.
  • W2: Latest Work address is pinned.
  • Additional addresses are added sequentially based on the latest updates. Furthermore, the current address is prominently displayed at the forefront of the address list. Upon selecting any address for delivery, it automatically moves to the first position, enhancing visibility and facilitating easy access.

 


9. CVV optional config for Powertranz:

Users now can designate the Card Verification Value (CVV) as optional for saved cards on future transactions.
This will save this advancement and provide users with the option to toggle between making CVV mandatory, thereby delivering a more customizable and user-centric payment experience.

To access this feature, users can conveniently navigate to the integration section, followed by Powertranz Payment. From there, users can proceed to the ‘Edit’ option, where they will find the setting to make CVV optional.

 

 

10. Content Page:

Previously, content page editing was not functioning correctly in specific cases. We have addressed and resolved these issues, ensuring that content page editing now works properly across all scenarios.


11. App Billing:

We are pleased to announce the implementation of the app billing concept within our administrative dashboard. This includes essential details such as the next app billing date, the current status of applications (active or inactive), and the categorization of the app type—whether hybrid or native—used by customers. Notably, this feature extends to encompass merchant app data, offering a comprehensive overview. This newly introduced system facilitates the automatic generation of monthly app maintenance invoices. It distinguishes between customer and merchant invoices, generating them separately based on the specific app type being utilized—hybrid or native. This meticulous approach ensures clarity and transparency in understanding the configuration of apps administered by the system. Admin can check the same in their billing section.

 

12. Currency Validation:

We have implemented additional security measures in the order creation process, with a particular focus on the platform currency. Previously, some clients experienced discrepancies where a different currency was displayed in the order history compared to the dashboard currency. The recent updates address these issues, ensuring greater accuracy and consistency in currency representation throughout the platform.


13. Spanish Language:

In the case of the Spanish language, certain strings were not being handled correctly and were appearing in English. We have successfully addressed and resolved this issue.

 

Bugs Fixes


1. Custom Language:

Previously, ALT was not supported for the merchant dashboard, specifically on the signup page. We have addressed and resolved these issues, and now ALT is functioning as expected.


2. Address Selection on the Merchant Dashboard:

In the previous version of the merchant dashboard, an issue arose during the order creation process where customer-saved addresses were not displaying correctly. Instead, a specific default address was consistently appearing for all customers in the default address field. This discrepancy has been addressed in the latest update.

 


3. Paystack Payment Gateway:

Previously, customers faced challenges purchasing gift cards through the Paystack payment gateway in specific cases. We are pleased to inform you that we have successfully addressed and resolved these issues,  ensuring a seamless experience for customers when buying gift cards via Paystack.


4. New Merchants Address:

Previously, during merchant signups, the system would populate the merchant address field with a random address. Moving forward, when a merchant signs up, the system will now add the administrator’s address during the initial phase. This adjustment ensures more accuracy and consistency in the merchant address information.

Bug Fixes

  • Google Translate language issue- signup fix: Some customers experienced issues on the customer sign-up page while utilizing Google Page Translate on the customer website. Now the website functions smoothly when using Google Page Translate.
  • Back button Fix for Hippo Chat: Previously, on the merchant hybrid apps, there was an issue where, after using Hippo Chat, clicking the back button resulted in the closure of the application. We have addressed this issue, and now, when users click the back button, it correctly redirects them to the previous page.
  • Addon ID Error Resolution in CSV import: During the combined CSV product upload, the system encountered errors in specific cases, indicating an “Invalid Addon ID.” We have identified and resolved these issues. The combined CSV functionality now operates seamlessly as intended.

October 2023

New Features

  • “Cart Value” Key for Tookan:

    Now you can pass the “Cart Value” to TOOKAN. In our latest update, we’ve introduced a new key for Tookan that enables the transmission of ‘Cart Value’ to TOOKAN during order creation. By creating a support ticket, customers can avail this feature. Why use this key: This key was introduced in response to a specific concern on the Tookan side. When discounts are applied to orders in Yelo, our clients expressed a desire to deduct the discounted amount from the agent’s wallet. Previously, we were sending the discounted amount (total amount – discount), which made it difficult for clients to access the non-discounted value.
  • reCAPTCHA for Customer Signup:

    Now, reCAPTCHA is integrated with Yelo for customer signups. This integration bolsters the security of the signup process, adding an extra layer of protection. Administrators can activate this feature effortlessly by navigating to the ‘Configure’ menu, then selecting ‘User Settings,’ ‘Customers,’ ‘Signup Verification,’ and choosing ‘reCAPTCHA’.

  • Geofence Based Task Pricing from TOOKAN:

    We’ve introduced a new feature in Yelo – Geofence-Based Task Pricing from Tookan. This feature allows administrators to create geofence-specific pricing rules within a single template on TOOKAN. This ensures that delivery charges align with the designated rules, offering a seamless and flexible pricing structure. To enable this feature, administrators can access the Yelo extension. Why use this? Suppose you need to apply distinct pricing rules for Zone 1, Zone 2, and Zone 3, each with different base fares and additional delivery charges based on the distance traveled. In such cases, you can utilize this option to configure the platform accordingly.

  • Service Booking in the Service Marketplace:

    We have now integrated a new feature on the service marketplace that allows merchants to configure their order-receiving preferences based on store hours. With this enhancement, merchants can choose to receive orders exclusively during their designated store timings, ensuring that orders are created only when the store is open. Alternatively, if the toggle is disabled, merchants have the flexibility to receive orders around the clock, providing them with greater control over their service availability and customer interactions.

Enhancements

  • Order Details on Shipday:

    We’re excited to announce an enhancement to our system. In addition to the existing data, we are now pushing comprehensive product details on the ship day. This significant improvement ensures that detailed product information is now accessible within the DMS, offering a more comprehensive view of orders during the transition process.

  • Delivery Management Software Logs:

    “Accessing Delivery Management System (DMS) logs has become more convenient, now available directly from the dashboard. In the past, customers encountered difficulties in tracking DMS updates during order deliveries. To enhance transparency and provide easy access to this information, we’ve integrated DMS logs alongside individual orders within the ‘Order Logs’ section on the dashboard. This ensures that customers can quickly access relevant DMS details for every order.”

  • Product Discounts For Master brand:

    Previously, the feature for applying product discounts was unavailable for the master brand. We’re delighted to announce that we’ve expanded this functionality to include support for product discounts on the master brand. This means that merchants can now effortlessly apply product discounts to products inherited from the master brand.
  • Elastic Search Results:

    We’ve implemented a range of strategic improvements and enhancements to our Elastic Search infrastructure. Our focus has been on fine-tuning the search algorithms and the underlying system, resulting in a significantly improved search experience for our users. These changes will deliver more accurate and relevant search results, ultimately enhancing the overall effectiveness of our search functionality.
  • Dynamic Tags for WhatsApp notifications:

    We’ve introduced dynamic tags for WhatsApp notifications, extending the feature that was previously available for Email. These dynamic tags empower administrators to easily include additional information, such as order numbers, delivery times, specific product details, and comprehensive order information, within WhatsApp notifications.
  • Tracking Link UI:

    We’re thrilled to introduce enhancements to our tracking link and order details user interface (UI). These improvements offer a user-friendly and informative tracking experience, providing comprehensive order details and an intuitive tracking link interface. This makes it easier than ever to monitor your orders and stay updated on their status.

  • Angular 16 Upgrade:

    We’re delighted to announce the successful completion of a substantial upgrade for our customer web app, elevating it to the latest Angular version 16. This enhancement not only keeps our app current with technology but also brings a multitude of benefits to our users. With this latest Angular version, anticipate enhanced performance, fortified security, and a more responsive and user-friendly web app. This upgrade also sets the stage for the introduction of exciting new features, all designed to offer you a seamless and cutting-edge experience while engaging with our platform.

September 2023

New Features

  • TapPay payment gateway

Yelo now works seamlessly with TapPay, a new payment gateway tailored for the Taiwan region. This makes it super easy for users to conveniently make payments in the local currency, “TWD.” To set it up, the admin just needs to enable the “TapPay” toggle under Payments in extensions and provide the necessary information.

  • Subscription Tax Integration

We are excited to introduce an enhanced feature that empowers administrators to apply taxes to both customer and merchant subscriptions. This capability is seamlessly incorporated into our system, allowing administrators to establish specific subscription taxes within the Taxes Module. As a result, when creating or modifying subscriptions, administrators can easily assign these taxes, providing comprehensive control and flexibility in the financial management of subscription-related aspects.

 

  • Product Search by SKU

We’re excited to introduce a new update to our search module, improving the product search functionality across various platforms. With this update, administrators can now search for products by their SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) on the admin panel, customer web app, as well as Android and iOS apps. This feature offers a more comprehensive and efficient method for finding products based on their distinct identifiers, enhancing the user experience across all platforms.

  • Merchant Subscription and QR Code Management:

We’ve expanded QR code functionalities for merchants. Merchants can now conveniently download their store’s QR code directly from their Configuration section. Additionally, administrators can oversee these QR codes through a dedicated merchant subscription. This feature not only increases convenience for merchants but also grants administrators improved control over QR code management, offering a comprehensive solution for QR code utilization.

Enhancements

  • Billing Information:

For certain admin accounts where it’s necessary to grant stakeholder access while restricting their view of the billing page, we offer the ability to hide pricing details from the dashboard. Now, administrators can easily hide the billing section on their accounts by simply creating a support ticket.

  • Resolved Issue: Persistent Expected Delivery Time Display in Mobile UI

In the previous version of our hybrid app with the new UI, users could always see the expected delivery time on their mobile devices, even when the admin had disabled it. We’re happy to let you know that we’ve fixed this issue, and now it works correctly as intended.

Activating the TapPay payment gateway

  • Dashboard Theme Page Upgrade

We’ve made some exciting enhancements to the “Theme Page” on your dashboard! Previously, the “Create Theme” option was tucked away inside the Explore Themes pop-up window. However, we’ve improved this feature by moving it outside of the pop-up for easier access. You’ll now find it conveniently located under the “Edit Theme” section. For viewing these changes, kindly take a look at the image below:

August 2023

Improved Billing Summary

In response to market requirements and to ensure alignment with industry norms, we’re excited to introduce a revised billing structure for our web application. We have made the following key adjustments:

  1. The “Product Total” terminology will now be displayed as the “Cart Value” on both the customer website and admin dashboard.
    Admin Dashboard

    Customer Website
  2. For enhanced transparency, all applicable taxes and charges will now be consolidated under the “Taxes” section on the website.
  3. In the event of additional charges being applied to the cart value, the combination of the cart value and these supplementary charges will be presented as the “Subtotal“. Marketplace-level and store/merchant-level taxes will be applied to this “Subtotal” value. The summation of these taxes will be presented as the “Total“.
  4. Users will find the inclusion of Delivery Charges, Tips, Total Amount, and Additional Charges total conveniently grouped under the “Net Payable Amount“.

    These modifications underscore our commitment to providing a more intuitive and user-friendly billing structure. By aligning with industry norms and catering to market needs, we aim to enhance the overall user experience and ensure greater transparency in transactions.

Outstanding Amount CSV Report

We have introduced a new option within the customer detail section that empowers both admin users and managers. They can now effortlessly export an outstanding amount of CSV reports for a particular customer. This CSV report provides a comprehensive list of orders that carry outstanding balances for that customer. Earlier, administrators had to manually search for orders with outstanding amounts linked to a specific customer. This addition streamlines the process of managing outstanding amounts and offers improved insights for more effective financial control.

Long Description in combined CSV

Earlier, the combined CSV lacked support for uploading long descriptions. Now admin users, merchants, and managers can include long descriptions in the Combined CSV for catalog bulk import. Furthermore, as part of this update, we’ve implemented a series of minor fixes to improve the add-on functionality. 

 

Additional Charges Key On Tookan

We’ve introduced a significant enhancement by incorporating an additional charge key within Tookan’s functionality. Previously, the additional charges were not visible in task details on the Tookan admin dashboard. Users can now readily view and track the additional amount on the Tookan admin dashboard, presented separately for improved clarity. To take advantage of this feature, administrators are required to initiate the process by creating a support ticket with our dedicated support team.

Version Update

We are excited to introduce a significant update to our Android and iOS apps, bringing them in line with the latest versions. This upgrade encompasses various enhancements and optimizations, ensuring a more refined and feature-rich user experience.

Database Upgrade

We are pleased to announce that we have completed an upgrade to our database, bringing it up to the most current version available. This proactive enhancement ensures that our system benefits from the latest features and optimizations, resulting in improved performance, security, and overall functionality.

Map Radius

In the previous scenario involving the Mappr, the Map Radius feature lacked support within Yelo’s native apps. We’re excited to announce that we’ve made significant strides in extending this feature’s functionality. As a result, Map Radius is now fully supported on our native apps, offering users a comprehensive and seamless experience.

Integration UI Upgrade

We are pleased to introduce an upgraded Integration Module UI, aimed at providing users with an enriched and more intuitive interface. Alongside this enhancement, we have implemented several optimizations geared towards delivering an enhanced user experience.

Enhanced Payment Security Layer

We have taken proactive measures to enhance the security of our payments page by introducing additional layers of protection. These security enhancements mitigate vulnerabilities and provide users with a safer and more secure payment experience. Your data and transactions are now further safeguarded against potential threats, reinforcing the integrity of our payment processes.

Msg91 Enhancement

Previously it was required for campaign variables on the MSG91 dashboard to perfectly match those on the Yelo dashboard. This was confusing and affected the user experience. To address this, we’ve revamped the flow. Now, we fetch variables straight from MSG91, so clients no longer need to sync up variable names with Yelo. This change should make things much smoother for everyone involved.

Security header on the website

When accessing a website through a browser, a series of request headers are sent from the browser to the server. In response, the server sends back HTTP response headers. These headers play a crucial role in the exchange of information between the client and server, forming an integral part of the HTTP protocol. The headers establish a framework for communication and guide the behavior of web pages as browsers interact with servers. Comprising pairs of key-value information separated by colons, HTTP headers encompass various facets of the browsing experience. To enhance the security of websites, we are implementing web security headers. These headers fortify the website’s defenses, bolstering overall security measures as part of the browsing experience.

Bug Fixes

  • City Level Delivery Charges:

Previously, when dealing with city configuration, there were issues with the accurate functioning of city-level delivery charges. We are pleased to announce that these bugs have been successfully addressed and resolved. With the necessary fixes in place, users can now experience consistent and reliable city-level delivery charge calculations. 

  • Content Pages on Hybrid App:

In the context of the new UI for our hybrid app, there were issues with the proper functionality of content pages. With the necessary fixes in place, content pages now operate seamlessly within the hybrid app’s new UI. This enhancement ensures a smoother and more reliable user experience for our customers.

  • Store Ad Banner:

Previously, the “Add Banner” feature encountered functionality issues within the store account when the Appetite theme was applied. We’ve successfully resolved this issue. With the necessary fixes in place, merchants can now seamlessly utilize the “Add Banner” feature even while using the Appetite theme.

  • Category Discount:

We’ve taken a step forward by discontinuing the category discount option in the merchant dashboard. This decision comes as a result of its previous lack of support on Yelo’s platform. By removing this feature, we’re ensuring a more cohesive and streamlined experience for our merchants, aligning with the capabilities of our platform.

  • Hippo Agents:

Previously, an issue arose involving Hippo agents. Whenever updates were made to merchant details on Yelo, corresponding agents on Hippo were automatically activated. We are pleased to inform you that this issue has been successfully resolved. Going forward, these agents will no longer be triggered automatically upon merchant detail updates on Yelo, ensuring a smoother and more controlled experience.

  1. Restaurant Ebill with QR Code

Restaurant E-Bill, in the simplest terms, is electronic bills. These are the bills sent and paid to/ by the customers or businesses either using SMS, WhatsApp texts, PDFs, or Emails. To analyze its origin, the digitalization of the payment and billing process has become a global trend in all industries. The purpose here is to create transparency, efficiency, and quick ways of doing business. Opting for online payment and getting e-bill has now turned into a common norm. Especially for the restaurant industry, which was heavily affected due to the pandemic, this new trend has helped retain and manage customers.

Perks of E-bills and Invoices:

    • Easy Automation: The system keeps track of all the payments and expenses made in the business. This new way of maintaining digital records of all bills has helped the owners and the staff save time. All the data on payment now is simply fed and stored in the system. This data can be anytime, anywhere access, and analyzed for crucial business decisions.
    • Reduces Costs Of Printing: On average, a restaurant spends around ₹5000-6000 annually on printing rolls used for printing bills. This might not seem like a big amount, but for a small-scale restaurant, this is a considerable chunk of expense from the profit.
    • Convenient & Reliable
    • Improves Customer Experience: Customers are always on the lookout for new and unique restaurant experiences. One of the reasons for is curiosity is technology in the restaurant industry. Today, technology has provided every single one of us with the agency to assist ourselves. And so, when this new trend of digital payment and ebills came in, there were eager to know more and explore it.

Taking all of the above into consideration, we have introduced a QR code on “Order Placed” Invoices and the same can be seen on the thermal printer and customer order-placed emails. By scanning that QR code, users can see their invoices on their devices. After scanning the QR code, a soft copy will be visible on your device, but some devices/browsers may ask permission to download the invoice first.

Please Note: It is mandatory to enable order placed email from the dashboard. If the customer order placed email is disabled, the QR code will not be visible on any invoice. Kindly refer to the screenshot below:

  1. Enhanced Customer Verification

We are thrilled to announce the introduction of our latest feature, “Enhanced Customer Verification“. This new capability empowers administrators to access a list of unverified customers and proactively reach out to them, prompting authentication. We believe this enhancement will not only optimize your marketing investment but also significantly improve customer retention, thus fostering a stronger and more fruitful relationship with your users.

Understanding the Challenge:

In the dynamic world of business, acquiring new customers is a crucial but costly process. Each potential customer requires a significant investment of time and resources to be converted into a loyal patron of your services. However, in the past, there was a challenge in ensuring that every signup led to a verified customer. Sometimes, a customer’s signup would remain unverified due to various reasons – either because the customer did not authenticate themselves or because the administrative approval was pending.

The Cost of Unverified Customers:

Every unverified customer represents an investment that has not yet paid off. Incomplete signups may have resulted from customer indecision, technical issues, or simply a lack of awareness about the verification process. These unverified signups meant that your marketing efforts and costs might have gone in vain.

Enhanced Customer Verification to the Rescue:

With our Enhanced Customer Verification feature, we are handing the reins of customer verification back to you, the administrators. By providing you with a clear list of unverified customers, you can take proactive steps to reconnect with them and request the necessary authentication. This not only ensures a smoother onboarding experience for customers but also allows you to maximize the return on your marketing investment.

Benefits of Enhanced Customer Verification:

      1. Cost-Effective Customer Retention: The cost of retaining an existing customer is considerably lower than acquiring a new one. By reaching out to unverified customers and guiding them through the verification process, you have a greater chance of retaining them as active users.
      2. Improved Customer Engagement: Personalized communication to unverified customers shows that you care about their experience. This thoughtful approach can lead to stronger customer engagement and loyalty.
      3. Enhanced Data Accuracy: Verified customer data ensures that you have accurate information for marketing campaigns, product personalization, and targeted offers, leading to more effective interactions and conversions.
      4. Streamlined Administrative Workflow: With the clear distinction between Admin Side Verification and Customer Verification, your administrative team can now efficiently manage customer authentication, making the verification process smoother and quicker.
      5. Positive Brand Image: By investing in customer retention efforts, you showcase your commitment to providing exceptional user experiences, which ultimately enhances your brand reputation.

This improvement will enable our users to efficiently find and select the desired products for their discounts, promotions, and banners.

 

  1. SMS Country Integration


We’ve upgraded our SMS Country Integration to align with the latest version. This enhancement ensures that our system is now fully optimized to leverage the latest features and capabilities offered by SMS Country.

Introducing Versioning: Keeping Your App Smooth and Compatible

We’ve implemented a versioning system in the Yelo SaaS platform to ensure a seamless user experience and compatibility with different devices. Here’s a breakdown of the three versions:

Major Version: Signifies significant changes to features and functionality, such as new payment gateways or third-party integrations.
Minor Version: Includes minor updates like bug fixes, security enhancements, and performance improvements.
Patch Version: Addresses critical bug fixes and security updates that require immediate attention.
Frontend Versioning:
Each frontend device (Android, iOS, Web) has its unique version number in the format X.Y.Z (Major.Minor.Patch). For instance:

Android: 2.0.1
iOS: 1.5.3
Web: 3.1.2
Backend Versioning:
The backend schema updates are based on the frontend version. The schema version aligns with the frontend version number. For example:

If the frontend Android app is on version 2.0.1, the backend schema version will also be 2.0.1.
Any changes to the backend schema will result in a new schema version. Users must update their apps to ensure proper functionality.
You can find these versioning details under the customer details section in both the admin and manager dashboards. Check out the attached screenshot for a visual representation.

Simplify updates, enhance compatibility, and deliver a smoother app experience with our versioning system.
