With this update, the order placement screen has been modernised and clarified, removing any confusing or unnecessary wording.

4. Improved Vendor App and Web Panel features

Several updates have been made. Firstly, we've introduced vendor-specific delivery distances, allowing restaurants to customize their delivery range beyond the default setting for greater operational flexibility. For clarity, these settings have been renamed to make them easier to understand. Secondly, we've made significant improvements to the UX of the vendor catalog loader. Previously, customers may have experienced white screens and slow loading times due to slow connections or large catalog sizes. With this update, we've optimised the loading process to ensure a smoother and faster browsing experience.

We have also clarified the naming of address comments for clearer communication and added brand logos to the mobile web for a more consistent brand presence.

The enhancements in this release are designed to create a more intuitive and seamless experience for our partners' customers, simplify the checkout process and increase the number of orders.
