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. Watermarking

    Pretty much everyone except 3dcart offers water marking capability with their shopping cart which helps protects a businesses images from being stolen or taken. We upload the standard image, and a filter is applied over the image with our logo in the corner that makes it appear when a competitor tries to save our image and use it for their self.

  2. Aggregate all JavaScript and CSS files

    All JavaScript files should be aggregated into a single file before being served, same with CSS. I believe they will be gzip'ed automatically, so space characters aren't a huge issue, but it would still be preferable to "minify" both the JavaScript and CSS before serving them as well.

  3. Price Display Options

    Add a quick way to change how prices are displayed.
    Example:

    - show price range (it varies depending on size/color of product)
    - show maximum price
    - show minimum price
    - hide the price

    This will help keep our customers from being confused or misled.

  6. Video Background For Home Page Carousel

    It would be nice to have the option to add a Video Background option instead of sliding images. Recent finding show on average 30% higher captive rate and increased time spent on the website when a video is played on the home page instead of a static image or sliding carousel. Having the ability to use a WYSIWYG for text overlay would be nice too.

    Please add this option either to new templates or an add-on app.

  8. Enable Product Options Template screen to show the list of Products using the Linked Template

    Currently on the Product Option Template screen it tells you how many products are linked to a template but you can not extract that information. It would be ideal if you could simply click on the # of Products and a list is shown that can be easily downloaded into a CSV

  9. Update password requirements for enhanced security

    Currently special characters are not supported and there is a maximum length of 16 chars.

    NIST currently recommends allowing all printable ASCII chars and a required length of 8 chars and a minimum ALLOWABLE length of 64 chars. See 5.1.1.2 (https://pages.nist.gov/800-63-3/sp800-63b.html#sec5)

    Given the PCI compliance is always a concern, limiting users to weakened passwords should be avoided.

  10. add Webp image file format support to thumbnail.asp creation

    add Webp image file format support to thumbnail.asp creation.
    Google is now pretty much requiring images be in newer more Modern formats for SEO.
    It would be great if templates and image uploads could auto generate Webp image files automatically on upload and in templates

  11. Sales tax matching QuickBooks

    It would be awesome if when connecting to QuickBooks that sales tax came over as a single item, named the same, each time. For example, we collect tax in 17 states currently. Taxes come over to QB as "TX11.00" or "TX8.25", etc. Can you imagine how many line items I now have in my Items list just for Sales Tax?? If you would streamline it to "Sales Tax" that would help me keep my Items List for actual Items that we sale instead of having these random codes all over the place. If you can't do that, at least put…

  12. Product Option Template list needs to be sorted alphabetically

    Product Option Template list should be sorted alphabetically, not be when the template was created. That makes it very difficult to find a template and edit it. The alphabetical sorting is already done when you add a product and select use a template, the list of available templates comes up then sorted alphabetically, however the main list of templates under product list, option templates does not.

  13. Full Page Width Header that Doesn't Take Place of Logo Like Global Header

    Requesting a header that runs the full page width for merchants to display free shipping or other promo information. Different than Global Header in that it wouldn't take the place of the logo and wouldn't be limited to just that section of the header.

  14. Externalize 'shiptracking.asp' as a configurable variable

    It'd be helpful if the value 'shiptracking.asp' could be externalized as a variable e.g. [shiptrackingrouter] so that one could add their own file or href.

    For example, since we use DHL eCommerce, and since this isn't supported by 3D Cart, we need to handle this ourselves, which is easy to do with our own router e.g. shiptrackingrouter.html.

    This could also be helpful for sellers who want to use a different tracking service e.g. ShipStation, that supports many more shipping providers than 3D Cart.

    Externalizing the path as a variable would help every time a new version of the "Shipped" email…

  15. Allow Product Option Templates to be rearranged on screen

  16. Update Product Options Template export csv to show if it has a Linked Template

    When you create a Product Option Export csv if an additional column could be added to show the name of the Linked Template (or Catid) if applicable. If it is not linked then leave the field blank.

  17. Ability to save product sorting data when uploading updates using API

    Currently when updating our site using API's we lose the product sorting data. The products in their respective categories are no longer sorted correctly and make the web page look sloppy and unprofessional. We have spent numerous hours restoring the sorting data. Very unhappy with this outcome

    There needs to be a way that the product sorting data is kept and can be exported/imported via API while uploading updates so the sorting doesn't get erased like it does now.

  18. A coupon code that can be a percentage and only apply to one item is a very important coupon to have for a small retail store.

    Unfortunately I am not able to create this kind of coupon. You should fix the program so that we can do a percentage off one item coupon code

  20. Home page customization

    Currently there is limited flexibility on the placement of products on the "Featured Products" for the homepage. It would be great to have it set up like categories where you can default to options or use a numbered priority for placement of products. Many times I want to feature products "above the fold" where they are more visible as I have written an article and I want the product on the top or for sales. The options given don't easily allow that like the categories options do.
