Updates tagged with "Billing"
The new version of Lumi for Suppliers is now available and includes significant improvements for payments, user management and fulfillments. Let's dive in!
Settlement times for invoice payments have been significantly reduced. You can expect to receive bank transfers between 4 to 8 weekdays faster than before.
We've made it easier to add and remove users on your Lumi Supplier account. Go to Settings > Users to see the new view, or read our guide on inviting users.
You can now cancel fulfillments as long as the customer has not submitted payment on the associated invoice. This can be useful if you have accidentally submitted incorrect information, or a last minute change has been requested.
We are beginning to open new custom invoicing capabilities for payments that fall outside of the standard order flow. This type of invoice can be useful when you need to charge a customer for samples, expedited delivery, or other products and services that a customer may have requested outside of the standard quoting process.
If you would like to use the new custom invoices, please reach out to us!
The new version of Lumi for Suppliers brings a host of big improvements to help you tailor opportunity notifications, customize your profile page to receive more customers, and track the status of payments. Let's jump right in.
You can now tailor Marketplace opportunity notifications with two new options in your Notifications settings:
The new Profile Manager allows you to edit the profile pages for your locations. Completing your profile page helps customers find you, and build trust in your capabilities. You can now easily add:
The new Billing view brings all your invoices and customer payments into one convenient location. Now you can:
In addition, we've made it easier to reconcile your payouts by adding metadata to payments in Stripe. Each payment will now include all the reference information you need to match payouts to unique IDs for POs, invoices, and customers.
The "reference" field on orders can now be edited after order submission. Previously you could only add it during the order creation flow, but now you can also leave it blank and edit it later. This is useful if you are creating your order in Lumi and want to match it to a PO in your ERP or other software.
The reference field can be used to identify an order by an internal number or naming convention that differs from the order number created by Lumi and will appear on invoices related to this order.
Additionally, we've fixed a bug that was causing some spec information to be missing from the Items page.
Previously, invoices were paid manually in your Billing section. Now we've automated the process to streamline your workflow.
You can continue to pay invoices manually through Lumi anytime before the invoice is automatically paid.
With this release we made it faster to get your orders into production.
Instead submitting the order and payment for upfront costs separately, all the upfront costs indicated in the billing schedule of your order will be automatically debited as soon as your order is accepted. You can set the default payment method in your settings.
When you submit an order, it will be reviewed to verify that all details are correct. If everything is good to go, your upfront costs will be automatically debited from the payment method of your choice. At this point, you will receive an invoice for your records as well as confirmation of the payment. If your order requires any changes before we can accept it, we will be in touch with you and no payment will occur.
Subsequent invoices for your order will continue to work as they did before.
Analytics are now available in Lumi! Analytics provides more quantifiable, measurable insights about your packaging supply chain. You can read more about this release on our blog.
We're starting with three report types:
Fixed "No such token" bug causing payment methods to occasionally become unlinked from accounts.
Invoice PDFs are now attached to invoice notification emails so you can save it without having to log into your account.
