After purchasing Postmates, Uber deprecated the Postmates API for marketplace orders that flow through Handoff. All order traffic for Postmates now flows through the Uber connection. To account for this, Postmates has been removed from the Handoff setting and added to the Uber configuration section.
The sales tax calculation has been modified for orders that contain a taxed service fee. It previously was rounded for the service fee, apart from the rest of the order. In some scenarios, this would create a penny difference from the POS’s tax calculation. To be more in line with other POS systems, taxes are now calculated at the item level and rounded only after they’ve been totaled.
The markup option for prices in Handoff was previously limited to the main menu item, but you can now create a separate price for options or modifiers.
With each Order & Delivery transaction, a guest’s IP address from the authorization is saved to be used for the capture portion as well. This enables velocity filters for fraud to function properly.
More settings in Order & Delivery are now self-service. If you navigate to a store and choose “Settings,” you’ll see two new options at the bottom. The first is “Text,” which applies to what’s configurable in emails or on the menu. The second is “Advanced,” which allows access to higher-level functionality for a smaller subset of users.
The on/off toggle has been removed from the dashboard page in Order & Delivery, but there’s still an indication of whether a store’s online ordering is on or off. With the act of disabling a store now more intentional, it’s far less likely to be done accidentally.
Orders passed to NCR Radiant now have better validation to eliminate instances of orders failing upon final submission.
Increased monitoring and queue management enable faster processing of POS menu-syncing operations.
Additional reporting involving edge cases allows for more accurate reporting on payouts within the Paytronix platform. The payout schedule will be faster once it’s automated.
