Hello ,


As you may be aware, for over 30 years The Babener Law Firm and The Sheffield Group have held their Starting and Running the Successful MLM Company event for entrepreneurs and corporate executives focused on the direct selling industry.  Our usual October conference in Las Vegas is being replaced by a two-day online virtual conference.  This is an exclusive private event for entrepreneurs and company executives who are either launching or running a direct selling company.  The NEW Direct Selling Conference features world-class industry experts sharing the keys to starting and running a successful direct selling company. We also offer personal, one-on-one, consulting for each participant.

 

I’m sure most of you will agree - It’s been a tough year!  Many people are still trying to figure out the “new norm”.  But there is a formula for the “new norm”, and we’ll share it with you.  Over the last 30 years many of the most successful MLM companies got their start by attending this conference.  Several attendees who began here went on to create billion-dollar companies.  And today, with all the uncertainties, we are honored to bring this event to you virtually.

Hello    ,

Effective November 1st, 2020, MultiSoft will no longer be offering free Google Address verification.  Google Address verification is utilized for credit card billing address and shipping address verification, as well as Mapping used for geocoding/mapping of Customers and Distributors.  Should you want to continue having your users geocoded for location mapping on "Find a Distributor" or address validation during enrollment and checkout you will need to obtain your own Google API Key for this purpose. 

Please follow the instructions here:  https://developers.google.com/maps/gmp-get-started which provides a 4 step tutorial on how to configure and obtain your API key.

When you reach Step 3 you will want to enable the following APIs:

  • GeoCoding API <-- used for Find A Distributor mapping
  • Places API <-- Used for street address validation

If you are not using our API code (Website->Site Settings) then no changes are needed or if you already have your own API account no changes are required.

If you would like more information on Address Verification or GeoCoding of addresses please request a training here: https://calendly.com/multisoft-training/

Thank you,

MultiSoft Support

        • TaxID's are now full encrypted and not stored in clear text in any area of the database.
        • TaxID's can no longer be seen by administrators - only the 1st 3 digits of the TaxID are displayed to Admins; however Admins can update the TaxID.
        • The 1099 export report of TaxID's now requires the admin 100000 password to download (an extra added layer of security).
        • You can now set, on a country by country basis, whether the income TaxID is Displayed to your Distributors and / or Editable by your Distributors.  The new settings are under the admin menu: Website> Site Localization > Country Enrollment Tax ID's.
      • Enhancement - Ewallet PIN Code reset by admin
        • For our clients utilizing our WorldPayWallet eWallet system, admins are now able to reset the PIN code's of customers and distributors eWallets.  A video for this enhancement is available by Clicking Here.

        • Enhancement - Servers Upgraded to Windows Server 2019
          • All MultiSoft servers have been upgraded to Windows server 2019.  This now allows for support of http2 protocol and parallel loading of non cached resources, which has resulted in faster site and page load times.

          • Upline notifications - a new Upline notification for "New Distributors" and "New Customers" has been created.  The current module is set to follow "line of sponsorship", however this will be modified in the near future to allow "line or sponsorship or line of placement".  The upline notifications can be set for any number of levels, however we recommend a maximum of 10 levels until such time as we develop a full email and email scheduling service.  Note, these notifications are not available via SMS, however they are being scoped and planned for internal development in the future.
        • New - Add / Remove Loyalty Rewards by Admins
          • Administrators who have been assigned the role of "Can Transfer Loyalty Rewards" in Role Management by the 100000 Admin account can now add or remove Loyalty Rewards from a customer or distributors account.  Note, this will store who added or removed the rewards, when, and why.  This is a great customer service feature to recognize and reward leaders, provide disgruntled customers with additional loyalty rewards, etc.  For more information about the MarketPowerPRO Loyalty Rewards system please contact your MultiSoft Account Executive.

          • New - Shopping Cart Icon Drop-Down Cart
            • Your website should now be updated with the new icon that displays the quantity of items in a shoppers cart.  On mousing over the icon with the quantity count, a drop-down of all the items in the cart will now display with the ability to edit the items in the cart, remove the items from the cart, or go directly to the View Cart or Checkout page.  If this new feature has not been added to your website please submit a help desk ticket or contact your MultiSoft Account Executive.

            • Enhancement - Login or Create Account Pop-Up Has been Removed
              • Previously, when a customer or a distributor added items to their shopping cart and went to checkout an in-screen pop-up window would display, which was not always friendly on mobile devices.  The pop-up page has now been removed and all customers and distributors are directed to a full page without any pop-ups to login or create a new account.
            • Enhancement - Password Strength Pop-Up and Confirm Password Validation
              • On entering the password field when creating a new account the password requirements pop-up now appears informing enrolling Distributors and Customers the strong password requirements.  Upon entering the Confirm password and attempting to tab to the next field, if the two passwords do not match a warning of "Passwords Do Not Match." will be presented to the user.
            • Enhancement - Single SKU Purchase Page Now Available for Repeat Purchases
              • Previously, the Single SKU Purchase Page could only be used for new customers purchasing a single product / service (or multiple quantities), however it could not be re-used for existing customers or distributors to make another Single SKU Purchase, thus requiring existing customers and distributors to go through the entire shopping cart purchase.
              • Now, you can create re-usable Single SKU purchase pages that will recognize the customer or distributor logged in and pre-fill their information.
              • Additionally, this page can now be used for AutoShip / Recurring Billing Purchases as well as minimum and maximum quantity purchases can be set.
            • Enhancement - New AutoShip Settings

                    • New - Admin View Ranks
                      • If you are an administrator and want to view the rank(s) of any distributor(s), there is now a quick "View Rank(s)".
                      • After searching a Distributor in Users > User Management, the 5th column where the Sponsor ID is displayed is a "View Rank(s)", which when mousing over will display the ranks for each of the compensation plan types enabled in your system.
                    • Enhancement - Admin Advanced Search Features
                      • The two following fields have been added to the Orders > Order Management > Advanced Search functionality:

                    • Enhancement - My Customers Orders

                    • New - My Distributors Orders
                      • Your Distributors now have a brand New Distributors Orders module, which is the same as their newly enhanced My Customers Orders, which is the same order history you have as an administrator with all of the advanced search methods as a distributor excluding the search by IP address and search by eCheck Bank Account Number.
                    • New - Product Quick View
                      • When looking in Products > Product Management > Products, you will now see an "Eye" icon for any products that are enabled in your shopping cart to click and have a quick view of how the product appears without having to open new tabs and browse the shopping cart.  The same feature will be added to the SKU's management as we are preparing to overhaul the admin user interface for managing SKU's more similar to how products are managed.
                    • New - Shopping Cart Enhancements
                      • The two following new enhancements have been added to the shopping cart settings, which you will find at Company > Modules > Shopping Cart and Cart Settings.

                        • Number of images wide in shopping cart.  Prior to now if you wanted to change the number of items appearing in the product categories this had to be done by a programmer or a designer.  You can now manually set the number of items now to appear as either 3, 4, 5, or 6
                        • Pop Over or Slide in After Add to Cart (you will only want to allow one or the other, not both).
                          • Pop Over Cart will cause a window to immediately appear after a visitor, customer, or distributor has added an item to their cart.  In the window they can also set their AutoShip if they missed it the first time as well as go directly to the view cart or checkout page.
                          • Slide In Cart is still in development and should be ready in the next 10 business days.
