Incorporating Equipment functions in United Baristas Market
Okay, this is a massive update. Based on the learning from United Baristas Equipment [Beta], we paused development in 2021 with intention of implementing those functions directly into United Baristas Market. Today, we are announcing that work is underway to: • incorporate the equipment directory directly into United Baristas Market • move all company profiles, including engineers, into United Baristas Market • implement associated servicing and retailer searches into United Baristas Market We will notify impacted businesses once we have prepared the necessary steps for the transition. It's a big project for us, so please be patience and bear with us while we make these changes. Updates on the progress below 👇
Payment options on United Baristas Market
We are updating both the communication and function of payment options on United Baristas Market. The purpose is to make buying items easier, to further enhance community safety and make the listing process more straightforward. While we make these changes, some payment options will be removed and others will be temporarily unavailable. Unfortunately in some cases some users will need to update their payment options as we are not able to transfer all setting from the old to the new configuration. We will update all users when we have finished this work.
New Companies Profiles on United Baristas Market
We are starting to implement new Company Profiles on United Baristas Market. • Market Stalls will be transitioned to new Company Profiles – we will let you know when you have to update your profile New Company Profiles have a host of new features. Watch this space for details.
