StoreFeeder has also made improvements to their API and dashboard graphs in the latest release, and added support for UKMail International and Packet Service consignment types.

British multichannel management solution StoreFeeder has added a set of warehouse management (WMS) features to its platform.
StoreFeeder's WMS features complement its robust multichannel inventory and order processing suite. The new features include fully traceable stock adjustments over multiple stock locations, and multiple location types, with internal adjustments and an Enterprise-focused API to facilitate external links.
StoreFeeder's Enterprise customers can now reduce their reliance on third-party WMS systems, and save potentially thousands of pounds per month.
New features will continue to be added over the course of the next six months, including consolidated tote picking - traditionally the reserve of expensive systems in very high-volume operations.
"Our Enterprise customers have seen huge savings already," said Karl Ciz, StoreFeeder's Head of Sales, "the new WMS features mean that customers can now benefit from a single system to replace multiple systems, saving time, complexity and cost".
StoreFeeder was acquired by the Royal Mail Group in February 2015.

- Improved eBay Click & Collect settings.
UK multichannel software provider StoreFeeder is now offering completely free setup and training on all accounts, a service which was formerly charged at £1,000+VAT.
StoreFeeder's Head of Sales Karl Ciz said, "We are proud to offer free setup and training to all levels of client, something that we believe is quite unique amongst the higher-end multi-channel providers. We hear stories of massive setup costs elsewhere, but we are aiming to be a bit different."
"We pride ourselves on being one of the UK's most highly rated multi-channel order processing and stock control tools. Our differentiator has always been our service ethic, and this now extends to providing a real helping hand to all new customers without the headache of worrying about setup costs."
The new service includes between 6 and 20 hours of dedicated support, depending on the level of account, and an account manager to help new customers setup the entire system. Customers can expect help setting up stock control for web store, eBay and Amazon listings and fulfillment processes including warehouse pick-lists, invoicing and courier label integration.
"We have been trialling free setup for quite some time and the feedback has been superb. Our continued commitment to service, with emphasis on high levels of support during setup has proven to be incredibly popular, especially for those who have been 'bitten' by high setup costs elsewhere," said Karl Ciz.
StoreFeeder was acquired by the UK's recently privatized national postal service the Royal Mail Group in February 2015.
UK multichannel management solution StoreFeeder has a new feature which assesses how changes to shipping rules will affect orders.
The new Shipping Rules Tester, previously only an internal tool, is now available to all StoreFeeder users to test how shipping rules will perform under different circumstances.
The Tester allows users to see all valid shipping rules for an order, and which rule would be applied, helping sellers create shipping rules that calculate the correct results under different scenarios.
StoreFeeder's Shipping Rules have also been improved with new Specificity and Priority settings. Specificity and Priority acts as tie-breakers when more than one rule could apply to an order.
UK multichannel management solution StoreFeeder has a new integration with WordPress ecommerce plugin WooCommerce, following requests from users.
Othe new features in StoreFeeder include:
- Full logging of all inventory changes for products including orders, cancellations, goods-in activity and returns.
- The ability to remove an order from a pick wave.
StoreFeeder is now inviting users to vote on a range of new system improvements including an option to duplicate orders and the ability to save draft listings.
The UK's Royal Mail has acquired marketplace management software company StoreFeeder.
StoreFeeder built Royal Mail's consumer and small business shipping tool, Click and Drop, launched in October 2014. Click and Drop allows users to ship with Royal Mail within a few clicks, providing an integration with eBay so sellers can buy postage labels without manually inputting addresses.
The purchase of StoreFeeder will help Royal Mail develop online tools and APIs to help customers ship parcels easily. StoreFeeder will also continue to operate in the same way for its existing clients.
Nick Landon, Managing Director of Royal Mail Parcels, said: "Having successfully developed and launched our new shipping tool which has worked very effectively through the busy Christmas period, the acquisition of StoreFeeder was a clear strategic choice. I'm delighted that we will now be able to accelerate the development and release of even more tools to make shipping parcels with Royal Mail easier and more convenient."
StoreFeeder Director Karl Ciz said, "The StoreFeeder team are delighted with the acquisition and are keen to assure all current customers that it's business as usual."
