Virtual Store Builder Platform Update – Jan 2023

30 January 2023

As we kick off the new year, we have deployed many updates to improve market research with virtual shelves. These all come as continuous enhancements to make both the shelf-building process and virtual shelf exercises very easy.

Text wrapping on price labels

It is now possible to add product names to price labels without worrying about text length. When you add a long product name to the price tag, the text-wrapping feature will ensure that the rest of the text is displayed on the next line for a more appealing look.

Rotate products on shelf builder

Some products will not always have the right rotation as we build shelves. We implemented this quick solution so that we can easily rotate individual products right within the platform without using third-party tools to rotate them and then re-upload the image to the shelf. With this ease of use, quick edits are possible saving you time.

Resize product name and other elements on price tag

This feature makes it easy to customize price labels and create a unique shelf setup altogether. You can resize the product name, barcode, text box, etc. The size you set while on the price builder will be reflected on the price tag on shelf.
