Mercury Network Clients

  • Corrected an issue which prevented integration orders from using Client Group settings.

Mercury Network - Fee Panel

New Feature: The fee panel area now supports multiple types of vendors such as Appraisers, Agents, Inspectors, and Contractors. You can now filter your fee panel members by type of vendor. You can also add new vendor types to your fee panel by using the fee panel builder or by uploading your list of vendors.

Mercury Network - Order Management

  • Corrected an issue which could sometimes cause the Due Date to be set incorrectly when accepting conditions for some orders.
  • If a requested override is rejected, orders will now go back to the vendor in a Revision Needed state.
  • Fixed an issue where a client could set an order to On Hold or Delayed and the vendor could set it back to Resumed. Now only the party who sets an order to Delayed or On Hold can Resume the order.

VMP XSites

  • New Feature: VMP XSite customers can now to choose to change their merchant account settings to batch processing. This means that your account will only settle once a day rather than after every charge. If you're doing a large number of daily transactions, you may prefer batch processing as it will simplify reconciling your credit card charges. Contact your account representative for more information.
  • Corrected an issue which could cause the fee for an order to be incorrectly updated when processing a partial credit card payment.
  • Fixed an intermittent issue with the client login page where moving between different status filters could cause a 404 error for accounts with large numbers of orders.

Vendors can now enter E&O amounts as little as $100,000.


  • Corrected all notifications to remove references to appraisers to support new vendor types.
