If one of your club members would like to be up on hold, you have the option to apply one of two hold settings to their profile. The previous version only offered a temporary hold option, requiring an end date. The new version introduces a permanent hold, formerly known as "Skip Shipment."

In certain scenarios, asking for a date of birth may be unnecessary. When you're sure the customer is over 21 and want to avoid compliance errors during shipping, we've got you covered. Our latest update introduces a convenient checkbox on the POS. By toggling on this setting in the customer profile, you can easily confirm their age is over 21.

Club

Club members might have various reasons for temporarily holding their membership, and VinesOS has long been supportive of this feature. We have now enhanced our data system to accurately reflect this membership status. Going forward, these members will not be included in the 'Active' members export, providing you with a real-time overview of those set to receive the processed club for the cycle, including both regular members and those with gifted memberships.

When a member cancels your club, VinesOS seamlessly syncs this action to Mailchimp. The customer will be automatically added to your designated Mailchimp list for canceled members. This feature empowers you to communicate with this specific group in a targeted manner—whether offering promotional savings for rejoining the club or presenting alternative loyalty options like subscriptions. If they rejoin a club, they will automatically be taken off the Mailchimp canceled members list.
