New features in Magento

This is where you can read about all the features we've introduced for Magento. We will be continuously updating this page with any new features added. You can also learn about all our new features in the release notes updates that we regularly email. For more details about each Magento extension version please visit Magento 1 extension release notes and Magento 2 extension release notes.

January 2020 | Magento MSI (Multi-Source Inventory)

Multi-Source Inventory (MSI) is a new inventory management mechanism for multi-source support. It is available for Magento 2.3+ merchants. It is designed to help merchants to reduce the negative impact of concurrent checkout. 

Now, this functionality is available to you if you install Brightpearl Magento 2 module 2.10.2 version. Read more about the feature here and how the inventory is managed here.

July 2019 | Credit Memo

Up until now when merchants were refunding customers via their Magento admin area using credit memos, they also had to create sales credit records in Brightpearl manually. Now this manual task will be automated via the connector. Go to “Brightpearl integration configuration” > “Interaction: Export Creditmemo” and enable the creation of sales credits out of credit memo. There are multiple settings that need to be configured to get it set up and running. Read more about configuring credit memo here.

May 2019 | OAuth2

Now Brightpearl supports the industry standard OAuth2 authentication and authorisation scheme. It ensures a more robust 2-way authentication, and more secure mechanism of storing and using authentication tokens. We strongly suggest to set up OAuth2 authentication and re-authorise your connections. Read more about Magento OAuth2 here. 

January 2019 | Capture company name on contacts

Up until now all contacts created via the Magento order download have been created without a company name. Now you can choose whether to capture the company name and when company name should be ignored, for example, if the customer has entered a company name of "None" or "Mr". This enables you to still capture the data but prevents contacts getting linked to companies when they shouldn't be. To begin capturing company name it needs to be mapped in the customization mapping configuration. Learn more

Customization mapping to custom fields on customers

Available in M1 extension version: 1.4.0 (May 2018)

Available in M2 extension version: 2.3.0 (May 2018)

Handling orders from resellers

Available in M2 extension version: 2.2.0 (March 2018)

Available in M1 extension version: 1.4.0 (May 2018)

If your Magento orders are generally placed by a reseller you will see all orders created against the reseller contact in Brightpearl. On the order recorded though, it will have the reseller as the billing name and address but the end customer as the delivery name and address.

One of the features of the Magento integration is that changes to customer details are recorded on the contact in Brightpearl, but in the case of a reseller, we don't generally want this to happen. To ensure the reseller details are maintained on the contact in Brightpearl, use the Export Order Interaction settings to configure the extension so that it doesn't update contact details:


New fields for customization mapping on orders and customers

Available for M1 and M2 extensions (February 2018) which include customization mapping. If you don't see customization mapping under Interaction: Export order settings please upgrade your extension.

We've made some changes to which Brightpearl fields can be updated from Magento. This means that for all Magento extension versions which have the customization mapping configuration, it is now possible to capture new information, as follows.

You can now capture the following details in customer record by using the customization mapping:

  • Lead source
  • Telephone 2
  • Mobile
  • Trade status
  • Custom fields

Along with delivery date and custom fields, you can now capture the following details in order records by using the customization mapping:

  • Lead source
  • Invoice address mobile
  • Delivery address mobile
