Feature Requests

Thank you for submitting a suggestion to our uservoice portal. Before you continue please consider the following:

We try to make our software as full featured as possible for a wide range of users in order to help 3dcart merchants succeed in their respective businesses.

However, please understand that while your idea may be perfect for your individual business model, it may not work for all stores and situations. We’ve set up this feature request and suggestion portal for ideas that may be of a benefit to all users globally on 3dcart. Hence the voting system that is enabled on the portal.

With that being stated, please also understand that submitting an idea to this portal does not guarantee that the suggestion can or will be implemented globally on the service for all users. As a service, 3dcart has many facets where functionality is dictated by peripheral services and influences such as API connections to Shipping Carriers, contractual agreements and integration parameters with various payment gateway providers, database limitations and other factors that can affect the likelihood of a suggestion being implemented.

If a suggestion is declined, we will make every effort in our control to offer counter suggestions or alternatives to try, including 3rd party-partner services (browse through our App Store) or work arounds using the existing software as is.

How can we improve 3dcart?

  1. Adding product images (and thumbnails) more easily

    Currently, when using "Use images you already uploaded" and "select an image I already uploaded" you can only select one image at a time, select it and "update product." To add another image, you have to repeat the enitre process. It would be great to be able to select multiple images with one single update.

    • schedule price change

      More and more of our vendors restrict us to a minimum advertised price. Some vendors have promotional periods where we are allowed to sell at a lower price for specific dates.

      Rather than have us edit the price twice:
      Once at the moment the promotion period begins
      Then again changing it back at the moment the promotional period is over,

      I would rather we be able to set the duration of the promotional price once.

      EG have the product sell at normal price up to 8/31/15
      Then have it automatically switch to a promotional price on 9/1/15
      Then have it…

      • "NEW" tag for items

        Having the ability to choose "NEW" just like "on sale" for products and a little NEW tag to highlight the item to customers! Thanks!

          • Gift Certificates should require an email address

            Email on Gift Certificate product page should be required. I am told that it is not because the because the customer might be buying it for themselves. The problem with that is that if they check out anonymously, no one gets a gift certification and that results in an unhappy customer. I am sure if the customer wants it emailed to themselves, they wouldn't mind typing in their email address.

            Here is what I am told happens today.

            1) if an email is entered on the gift certificate page, the gift certificate is emailed to that address
            2) If no…

              We'd like to be able to reply to our product reviews. With an option to reply so that anyone can see it or the option to reply in a private message. Sometimes we just want to say thanks. Other times we want to address issues a customer might have voiced in the review.

              • We need to set minimum order quantities by customer group and or price level

                We sell products to Retail and Wholesale customers. We need to be able to set minimum order quantities for Wholesale customers and or their distinct price level. The problem with 3dcart now is that if we set a minimum quantity, that quantity is set for all customers. We can't have our retail customers forced to buy in wholesale quantities (for example 12 units). If this feature could be added to customer groups or by price level that would be amazing.

                Please call me at 855-276-6277 ext.50 if you need further explanation.

                • Product Option Prices should factor in Customer Groups and Price Levels

                  = = = The Problem = = =

                  Product options with different prices and Customer Groups with different prices (by way of price levels) are not compatible.

                  = = = Example = = =

                  Customer Groups:
                  * Retail - pay full product and option price.
                  * Wholesale - pay 50% product and option price.

                  Product and Option:
                  * Plain shirt - $10
                  * Plain shirt with artwork - +$5

                  The desired pricing result is:
                  *Retail - $15.00 ($10 + $5)
                  *Wholesale - $7.50 ($10/2 + $5/2)

                  Wholesale is the problem. This is how 3dcart presently calculates the wholesale price:

                  • Product Options - Required fields show red asterisk

                    When making a field required in Product Options, no red asterisk appears like it does on the Sign Up page. I can manually add an "*" to the Field Name, but this is not ideal.

                    I think if the [Req.] box is checked, it should add the red asterisk to that field in the shopping cart to show the user that they HAVE TO fill in that part of the form. It's confusing when no real direction is given to what is and isn't required.

                    And the error message (if you don't fill it in) doesn't even tell the end…

                      • Export Product Features (field "prodfeature")

                        There is an option to Import product features, but no place to Export product features. If you go to Products » Import/Export, scroll to the bottom, you find a place to import "Products Features". If you open the "Sample File," it uses the field "prodfeature." I cannot find a place to export this data field. Therefore, if I have a manufacturer who changes an entire product line, I cannot edit in bulk all product features, I must go to each page and edit them individually.

                          Promotions: Please add check boxes instead of a drop down list for which discount groups the promotion applies to. This would allow to have more than one group selected for a single promotion without having to have ALL of the price groups selected or just a single group.

                              Currently merchants are able to track changes that have been applied to html templates and see who made the changes. A great feature would be to see this history on the product level. When was the product added, by whom, and then track the individual changes that have been applied to the products individually. We have several employees that are responsible for adding and editing products and we would like to be able to track their work!

                                  We like to only show currently available manufactures on our site. We would like to be able to temporarily hide a manufacturer without having to delete them.

                                  Often we need to not carry them because we are all out of stock or they could be seasonal. Having to delete and re-add them every time is a pain.

                                  • 360 Degree Image Spins

                                    Recently I've noticed several of our competitors adding 360 degree image spins to their site. Most are using Magic360, which is integrated into several eCommerce companies already. (https://www.magictoolbox.com/magic360/). Seems to be a pretty simple add-on that wouldn't take much for 3dCart to add. There are several companies that can do professional 360 spins (Series of images) of your products at reasonable pricing. (About $50 per product) Price fluctuates depending on how hard it is to do a 360 spin. Extremely cheap if it instills confidence into our visitors, that they are buying exactly what they want.

                                    • +/- Quantity button In Shopping Cart

                                      Many of our customers try changing the quantity in the shopping cart, but forget to click the "update quantity" button. Most of the time the customer checkouts out with the wrong quantity.

                                      Would be nice to see a different option, such as adding +/- buttons to increase or decrease the quantity. Still allow the customer to enter a value (For large quantities), then have the store dynamically change the quantity, instead of clicking "update quantity".

                                          This was declined due to lack of interest. I don't visit this section so didn't see it. I'll make mention of it on the forum as well. I've wanted this for a long time but figured it would be too hard for you to do.
