7/30/21 Jawa Beta Technical Update: Messages, shipping, and more listings!

It’s all coming together…

Greetings! As promised, here’s our weekly Jawa Beta update to keep you posted on all things happening behind the scenes with our fellow Jawas working around the clock! A couple big things our devs have been working on this week:

MESSAGING ON JAWA WORKS!!! 
Here’s what’s changed:

  • When you have a message you should see a red notification next to the menu (your profile image)
  • All messages should be in the Inbox. Before, some were in my listings and some were in inbox…if it didn’t make sense then you understood it perfectly 😉 
  • When the message is about a part you are selling, it should say (Your Listing)
  • You will receive an email from chat@jawa.gg to let you know if an unread message is waiting for you 

So head to Jawa and check it out! Who knows…there might be unopened deals waiting in your inbox… 

Shippo Integration is so close!
Less clunky processes + we’re adding shipping estimates!!

Shippo is a shipping service we are integrating with Jawa that will enable a better experience for buyers and sellers. Buyers will be able to estimate shipping cost based on location, and track the status of their order in Jawa. Sellers will be able to print a label from home and won’t need to manually send us the tracking information anymore.

Our developers have been working hard to get this up and running and hit a big milestone this week: we tested the new checkout flow with Shippo on our staging website, printed a label, and sent a test shipment…and it worked!!! Now we’re working out front-end design and copy changes. Hoping this can be rolled out in the next few weeks!

More parts are coming:
We have hit the pause button on onboarding new sellers since we’re so close to rolling out these big changes (thanks for your patience!). Once the new shipping flow is live we plan to open up Jawa further and do a big push for listings, which will likely involve a 30 series giveaway 👀. Stick around!

Happy building,
Jawa Amanda
