Christmas is here and we hope you’re enjoying a relaxing holiday! Today, we are happy to announce that the December release of Joobi products are now out before we break for the holidays.
Vendor's can now syndicate a product from another vendor and it will display on the vendor's profile and item listing.
With the current available functionality, the payment will go to the original vendor. If you want more advance functionality with referral commission, please contact Joobi support with your detailed requirements. Activate product syndication in your Multi-vendor store now.
Vendors can have a badge on their profile base on the store admin assignment and is available for search. The badge look and feel are easily customizable. Setup vendor badges now by following the "vendor badges" article.
Custom Pick-list for Fields
Ability to create multiple picklist with dependency parent/child, so that the child parent values get updated based on the choice of the parent picklist.
Also you can specify that a parent allow "Other" values, where a user can choose the choice "Other" and will be allowed to enter their own value.
Custom Fields base on Type of Classified Offer
You can create custom fields and assign it to display to certain type of offers only. When your client submit an offer for your ads, they can see different fields base on the offer selected.
Debug Mode for preferences and views
We now display both in the admin panel and front-end area the preferences and views enabled for each pages, so it is easy to debug for you and Joobi support, and see what settings for that specific page is being used so you can configure them properly.
Refactoring to welcome other CMS's compatibility
We did some internal refactoring to easily port to WordPress, so now that the release is out of the way we are 100% back to wordpress release.
Shipping cost goes directly to the vendor
Using Paypal Adaptive Payments, shipping cost is now sent automatically to the product vendor.
Primary receiver pays Paypal Fees
A new option added in the core that allow store admin to charge Primary receiver for the paypal fees.

How do I update?
Easy! Just wait for an automated email from your website to notify you about the new update (usually it takes a few second to a week after the initial release) so you get a more stable build. Or if you can't wait to get your hands on the new enhancements, just click "Check" button from the jCenter application page and do the automatic update by hand.
For lower version users, simply browse the list of change-logs and locate the right version you are on, and then follow the update guide until you get to the latest version.
You'll need an active subscription to access the update server.
This is a major release due to a number of changes in the library... We do NOT recommend updating your production website right away, instead simulate the UPDATE first in your test environment.
