These release notes contain a brief list of feature and service changes associated with the October release.
This release features service changes to our integrated UPS functionality including UPS Tools for checkout available to Merchant Solutions Starter merchants, export to UPS WorldShip available to Merchant Solutions Standard merchants, a new Import Tracking Number tool for merchants shipping with UPS WorldShip, and Shipping Manager available for use by Yahoo! Store merchants. This release also addresses numerous issues with the beta release of Checkout Manager.
Note: Checkout Manager was renamed Checkout & Registration Manager in 2011.
Checkout Manager Beta Release (phase 2) 10/03/2005
During the second phase of the Checkout Manager Beta release, you can now enable Checkout Manager so shoppers can use your custom checkout pages. Yahoo! strongly recommends merchants only enable after reviewing the known issues and after thoroughly testing their custom checkout pages.
Checkout Manager is still considered a "beta release". Given the importance of the checkout process, merchants are advised to test prior to enabling the system and to actively monitor checkout after enabling for any potential issues that may be undetermined as of yet. You can choose to disable Checkout Manager and return to your previous checkout process if you encounter problems.
NOTE ABOUT UPCOMING CHANGES
With the upcoming release in early November, custom checkout pages created in Checkout Manager will be updated to be more flexible in terms of using CSS for layout rather than tables. This change is the best long-term approach and offers the most flexibility to merchants and store designers. It does however mean that CSS customizations you make between now and the next release will need to be reapplied as the HTML or CSS ID/class names change due to the revised design.
At the end of the beta testing phase you will be required to re-download our standard CSS template and reapply your customizations.
This release addresses many known issues with Checkout Manager (Beta) and also other miscellaneous issues.
