Release Notes | May 20, 2021

We've been working hard on projects and making small updates and fixing all the bugs that we are able to find. We will be switching our format to sharing our release notes on a monthly basis as most of our sprints are focused on large projects. 

Performance Updates

  • We've added Vehicle Picker to MyProfile, MyGarage, and Default page for the P4.5 platform.
  • Control Panel
    • Added Resend Order Confirmation button on the Control Panel Order Details page under Email history.
    • Created a new tab called Order Activity. 
    • Added a Freight order flag under Recent Orders to warn dealers that shipment will require freight.
  • We successfully launched BMW Sydney in Australia!
  • We've done some updating VPI GM pricing import logic. 

Project Work - Stripe Integration

We've recently integrated with Stripe to provide another payment gateway option for our websites. One of the great qualities of Stripe is the quickness of setting up a new account, which can be as quickly as a few minutes. Stripe also has implemented EMV 3-D Secure to be fully enabled, which is the leading fraud prevention tool. 

We have just started our pilot and are hoping to roll Stripe out with more dealers.
