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. 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…

  2. "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!

  3. Reply to Product Reviews

    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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. Add "Continue Shopping Action" = LAST CATEGORY PAGE VISITED

    Please add a "Continue Shopping Action" option to go to the LAST CATEGORY PAGE VISITED

    Put yourself in the shoes of the user and imagine what this is iike:

    1. You are on page 6 of an 8 page category right before adding an item to the cart.

    2. You add the item to cart and are taken to the View Cart Screen

    3. From View Cart, you click the "Continue Shopping" button, and land on the first page of the 8 page category instead of page 6 where you were.

    4. Now you have to scroll through five pages…

  7. 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:

    *Wholesale…

  9. 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…

  10. instead of a dropdown for customer groups in the promotions, make it check boxes so that you can

    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.

  11. Tracking of product changes

    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!

  13. 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.

    I contacted support for this, the first time they misunderstood what I was saying, the…

  14. Remove product from category

    Currently you can bulk add products to categories; but you cannot bulk remove a product from a single category. Ex: When creating temporary categories for sales you can add multiple products to the category but you cannot remove them in bulk from just one category.

  15. Would love to be able to temporarly hide/disable manufactures without having to delete.

    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.

  16. Version: 8.2.4 Please return the product page jump links to the top of the page.

    You removed the links at the top of the page that allowed me to jump to pages within my inventory.. How having to drop down to the bottom of the page Each and EVERY time I need to move into my inventory is excessive.

    The search box does not need to consume 95% of the screen area like it does in this version.

  17. Make an Option Column for Cost

    Make an option column for cost, for product options that affect cost as well as price, weight, etc. All my product options affect cost, so my profit reports are useless since 3dcart only tracks the base cost.

    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.

  19. Advanced Options needs more fields

    Advanced Options needs more fields. Fields Requested:
    1. SUGGESTED RETAIL: Need this so that the Saving reflect the correct amount and percent when switching to higher/lower priced options.
    2. WHOLESALE/PRICE LEVELS: Need this so when a wholesale customer logs in and buys an item with with an Advanced Option the correct price is given to them
    3. HANDLING: Be able to add a handling fee per advanced option
    4. HIDE: You can only hide in Options. But if I am out of just the Black Large I don't want to hide all black or all large, just the black large. …

  20. save tabs

    When adding in products, descriptions, images, options, etc., I think it would be great if you could move from one tab to another without it deleting the information you JUST put in the tab you were previously on. This would definitely be a time save and a frustration reducer.
