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.

  1. Show expected delivery date on the shipping method when checking out.

    Like Amazon, I would like to show the customer the expected delivery date, or range of dates (Deliver by August 10 to August 15, 2015), per each shipping method, so the customer can choose the best shipping method, based on when he need it to be delivered.
    Also display this on the order confirmation page, and email.
    This should be manged on the admin under each shipping method, give the ability to enter the number or rage of days that the order expected to be delivered from the order date.

  3. Allow import of Zip Codes for custom "By Zip" shipping method

    When creating a custom "by Zip" shipping method, we have to manually enter the zip codes one at a time. We should be able to import them from a CSV file.

  4. Add FedEx One Rate to Shipping Methods

    FedEx One Rate is a tremendous value for online retailers, lots of companies that we know are moving to it. The rates are low and include free packaging. It's the number one method we want to use for shipping, yet it's not in your system.

  5. complete endicia integration

    The basic endicia integration is a tantalizing start, however it is missing:
    International integration (only canada is currently available)
    How to add insurance?
    How to add Signature Confirmation?
    How to use all of USPS package choices such as Regional Flat Rate A, B, & C boxes/rates?

    These questions are also posted in the forums:

  6. USPS Regional Flat Rate options

    USPS regional flat rate is frequently a significantly cheaper shipping option compared to regular priority mail flat rate options. Endicia supports regional rates in their software, but those rates are not integrated in 3dcart. Adding this feature would save a tremendous amount of money spent on shipping costs. Paying $8 instead of $16 for the same size and weight package is a lot of wasted of money. Preparing the shipping outside of 3dcart is a lot of wasted time.

  7. shipping dimensions

    3dcart should allow the entry on decimals instead of just integers for the Lenght Width and Height fields.

    All of our items require decimal points for these measurements.

  8. lowest shipping method default

    I would like the lowest shipping rate to be selected for customers by default. The way the site works now, it shows UPS rates first, but if a customer has a really light weight item, the UPS rates scare them away from buying. Likewise, if customers with really heavyweight items were to see the Postal rates first, there would be problems.

    Several of my customers and one employee helping a customer have complained that they didn't even see the Postal shipping options on the site.

  10. Add Fedex Freight Rates to live Shipping

    Fedex new API includes the ability to have live freight rates displayed. Fedex Senior Support Staff are willing to work with 3D to implement this feature. I don't understand why 3D Cart does not implement this very important feature. My business depends entirely on shipping heavy items and live freight rates would generate significant sales for my site.

  11. Add FedEx International Ground as a shipping option

    We use FedEx International Ground for shipping to Canada since it is a more affordable option that International Economy or International Priority. Unfortunately, the integration with this service isn't available in 3dcart.

    We'd like to see it added.

  13. continental shipping option (on free shipping setting)

    I would love to see a setting for free continental shipping - where the free shipping option is to the lower 48 states. I ship tons of big / heavy things to the lower states for free, and can not offer free shipping to alaska / hawaii / puerto rico / usvi, etc. Unfortunately, when you put the free shipping setting on, it includes all of those states / territories, and won't allow the restrictive shipping module to block them. I need the free shipping icon to work, because people want to see that, so please ammend your free shipping…

  14. Exclude individual products from Free Shipping offers

    Add a checkbox on items which would exclude that item from any Free Shipping promotions. Very simple and would allow me to exclude items that are oversize/overweight.

  16. Zip Code Mask

    Currently, if a customer enters a 5+4 zip code (12345-6789) without the dash (123456789) 3dCart does not figure the shipping because it doesn't recognize the zip code. So the customer doesn't get charged for shipping and the customer gets emailed an invoice with no charge for shipping. This means U have to invoice the customer later for the shipping and receive a second payment. Big inconvenience for the customer and myself and not very professional.
    Why not create a mask that adds the dash after five digits on the zip code and only allows either 5 or 10 digits (5+4…

  18. Allow customer to provide their own UPS #

    Customers repeatedly call asking to use their own UPS #. Not sure why 3dcart does not support this because your competition does.

  19. Additional Shipping tracking numbers

    The ability to add a 2nd. or 3rd. tracking number.

    An order needed to ship across 2 parcels, or sometimes a correction needs to be made resulting in additional tracking numbers.

    I need a way to add additional fields to the shipping area to show these additional tracking numbers.

  20. Charge a shipping or markup fee for certain items, but ONLY First pc NOT X5 if they purchase 5pc

    As it works right now. If we add a markup fee to an individual item of say $5. IF the customer purchases 5 of them it will charge them the live calculated rate plus $25. That is NOT good. We only need to charge that for the first piece in case they only buy 1 pc. As we want to be fair to our customers both in item price and not over charge them on shipping. This comes into play for Large bulky items, but they are light weight. So, we need to charge a ONE-TIME fee for that item…
