Over the next few months Yahoo! Merchant Solutions will be releasing a series of feature releases. A sneak preview of the new releases is now available for merchants on the Yahoo! platform. Check out what you can expect to change or improve on your store this year.
• Saved Cards for Customer Registration: The saved cards feature is for the customer registration system. It gives registered customers the ability to store credit and debit card information within their customer profile, enabling a more efficient checkout process. Customers can add, edit, or delete card information at any time. You can expect this release this month.
• Enhanced Site Search: This is the first of a multi-phased feature release to upgrade the existing site search functionality for Yahoo! Stores. It is expected to be a huge improvement over the current site search with the initial set of enhancements being released in August.
• Incremental Publishing in Store Editor: To facilitate more efficient store publishing for merchants, Yahoo! is updating the publishing functionality to all for either an incremental or full page publish in Store Editor. Merchants can expect to see this release in August or September.
• Page-Level 301 Redirects: Yahoo! is currently working on a new feature that will allow merchants to manage page-level redirects to help with SEO needs. It is under development at this time and Yahoo! expects a launch in 2011.
