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. Sitemap allow Google image indexing

    When asking Aaron H about google images indexing, he said 3dCart sitemap does not have this feature essentially, but I could make my on sitemap. if I pay for a service, I would expect it to have the basics. maybe this is a feature that was overlooked in the development of 3dCart. Please make it so that all my 3dCart images are included in the sitemap for Google indexing purposes.

  2. Update Store Blog Features

    It would be nice if the Store Blog had some additional features like a subscription button (not the one for newsletters), a search feature so your customers can search blog entries, ability to add widgets and other fun stuff to make the store blog more up to date and user-friends, especially for the customers. The idea is to get them in the store - even if through the blog!

  3. Buy Button for use in Pinterest and Facebook posts.

    I was reading that Shopify stores now has buy buttons which allow customers to purchase a product without leaving the site - can 3dcart do that as well?

  4. Promotions to be announced automatically over Twitter/Facebook/Other social outletts

    When a promotion is started have it announced automatically to a Twitter account/Facebook page and other Social outlets. This will announce to our customer base that a promotion is happening and when it ends. If we could also have a "ending soon" notification that goes out in the final hour/hours (Configurable) that would be extremely helpful. Its a "set it and forget it" campaign manger for a promotion. Set it up to start, notify and end while not having to manually do that on the store. Super useful.

  5. Support Rich Pins on Pinterest

    Right now 3dcart generates Open Graph meta tags. The one for price (og:price) includes the currency sign as in "$99.95"

    Pinterest Rich Pin validator requires that the price be without the currency symbol as in "99.95"

    The addition of a meta tag as follows would allow us to use Rich Pins out of the box. In fact, I still can't get a workaround going because 3dcart tech support won't help me with it.

    Needed :

    <meta property="og:price:amount" content="99.95">

    where the 99.95 comes from the [price] variable (stripped of the currency sign).

  6. Ability to collect a mailing list via our Facebook Store

    I have seen some stores on Facebook with a page where they can have users sign up for their mailing list. I know Constant Contact has an app for this but you have to be a Constant Contact user. I think 3dcart's facebook store app should absolutly include the ability for us to be able to collect a mailing list from Facebook and have the list tie into our store's master mailing list. Or at least allow us to be able to use the mailing list signup code in our Facebook store.

  7. add <meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow"/> to all "recommend a friend" asp pages

    add <meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow"/> to all "recommend a friend" asp pages. Why? because these are low quality duplicate pages and google applies a panda penalty to the whole site. All of your customers will benefit with better rankings once you do it. Help us make more sales and pay your hosting fees. Also using Disallow in robots.txt for RequestAFriend.asp pages is not enough!

  8. Give us filtering capabilities on marketing datafeeds so we can remove out of stock or non profitable items from data feeds

    Give us filtering capabilities on marketing datafeeds so we can remove out of stock or non profitable items from data feeds. The datafeed option needs a lot of work. We have lots of out of stock or non profitable items that we don't want to submit to certain channels but do want them on other channels. We don't want to hide these items in our store just to prevent them from showing up on data feeds. GoDataFeed is severely overpriced in my opinion, wanting around $200 a month to get lots of feeds and reports. Also, other shopping carts offer…

  9. Improve SEO with customer provided content - allow customers to post pictures with descriptions and tag which products are in the pictures.

    We would love to have customers be able to build site content for us! One way that MANY of our competitors do this is by having a photo gallery that the customers can contribute to and tag the products that are in the photo. Then they allow other customers to comment on the photos. This is almost like a customer generated blog post. This helps drive SEO a few ways. 1) Customers link from their blogs to the gallery post and/or share their gallery posts on social media. 2) customers naturally use words that other customers are searching for in…

  10. Add Canonical URL To Category Settings

    For sites that have large catalogs, chances are there will be subcategories under multiple category sections. Please add canonical url fields to the category seo settings so that we can engage in proper seo behavior on the site, and minimize duplicate content in the search engines eyes.

  11. Blog - Tag Categories

    Add an option to tag sub-categories that will display as a thumbnail just like when you tag products to a blog article. Shows category image, name and category short description. There are some blog posts that are specific to entire categories, so tagging hundreds of products is not an option.

  12. Ability to add response to blog comments from the admin portal

    It would be nice to have the ability to respond to blog comments through the admin portal. Currently, you can only approve a blog comment on the admin side. To post a reply, you have to post another comment from the front end, which then, in turn, has to be approved from the back side. You could mimic that same functionally as the Produce Questions and Answers module, which we use and works well.

  13. Edit Metadata for Index Pages

    Every page on the website can have customized meta title and description except Product and Category Index pages. Why? I would like to optimize for SEO but there does seem to be way to do that without getting into the html. And that does not seem easy. Should be simple for 3D cart to implement!
