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. 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…

  2. Gift Certificate

    I think it would be great if 3D Cart added expiration dates for gift certificates... We would like our gift certificates to expire after 1 year, but that is not currently possible. The only way we can currently make it work is to create a 1 use coupon code, but that is not efficient or as profesional.

  3. Enable the logo image in store emails to be a hyperlink to the store website.

    Enable the logo image in store emails to be a hyperlink to the store website. Also have a way to insert a hyperlink common to all store emails from a centralized store setting, similar to Store Logo and Invoice Logo.

  4. Promotion exclusion list

    It would be very nice to have an exclusion list for individual products when creating a promotion. Currently you can only exclude an item by manufacturer, but sometimes it's nice to have a sale where only a few things are not included. Example, something that is already marked down or a specific manufacturers gift card that should not be discounted. This would also work nicely as a tool for free shipping coupons when you need to exclude a few items that would have to ship via freight truck.

    Thank you!!

  5. cost effective apps

    Why is it that people that build small features feel their value is worth $39.99 a month ongoing? Because we pay monthly, does not give companies the right to extremely overvalue their add-on. The average life of software is 4 years. based on $39.99 a month, that turns to over $2,300 over 4 years....would someone pay over $2,300 up front for a little feature? no, would I pay $99 a year, probably. Because there is a tool for billing in 3dcart, does that give people the right to crank up the monthly costs because it seems cheaper because it's billed…

  6. please add a currency converter

    please add a currency converter so a user can select their currency and the admin can set the default and currency options. I want to process in default USD, but if someone wants to pay in local currency, you can pull the paypal rate or let us globally select our own rate and it will adjust the site and cart on completing the order. Might be nice to have the field on the dashboard for quick changes and updates.

  7. POS Scanner

    Your advertisements for POS show a Barcode Scanner, you should really consider adding that as a feature. Your new POS app appears to have been released perhaps a little early.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

    We have 2500+ on our 3dcartstore (website) organized into Categories. Synch to POS needs to include "Categories".

  11. Ability to page through not completed orders

    In the old system, I could use a page button to go to the next incomplete order, I would like that reactivated.

    Add address verification to phone order input page. Customers are difficult to understand over the phone even when they spell out their address. When we repeat the address back to them they say it's correct but sometimes they are wrong and are not paying attention. We have no way of knowing a typo happens unless address verification tells us it is an invalid address. Having this feature will help eliminate invalid shipments, make customers happy, and save money.

  13. 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.

  14. A way to combine several coupons into one. xx% on this, and yy% on that, or 5 on $50, and $10 on 100 with one coupon.

    Would be great to have an auto coupon combiner. We can generate several coupons, put them into the Generator, and out comes one code that would apply all of them.
    Currently it is impossible to do varied discounts. xx on this, yy on that, and a free item with $xx, without having the customer enter three or four coupons codes, which is not practical.
    The other option is to be able to apply the coupons through a link, like from a mailer, and string all the coupon codes together separated with a comma.

    You can easily do 5 on 50,…

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. Answer CMR Request requires via e-mail strait from notification mail.

    In the CRM email I am sent that lets me know the customers question, it would be great if it included the customer's email. This would save me several steps in responding to the queries from potential customers.

    Thanks for considering this.

  19. 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.

  20. 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!
