General Requests

PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING.

This is the official FoxyCart FEATURE REQUEST system. We take our user feedback very seriously, as our goal is to provide the most flexible and powerful ecommerce platform available. We can’t do this without you.

There are three different request lists.

  • GENERAL Requests
  • PAYMENT Gateways
  • SHIPPING Carriers

PLEASE make sure you review the existing requests before submitting a new one, as this will help us avoid duplicates.

Please note that that this is NOT for:

  • SUPPORT, please use our forum
  • BUG REPORTS, please use the bug reporting form or our forum
  • ANYTHING other than feature requests ;)

What would you like to vote for?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

      Update: We currently have the foundation of the new shipping system built, as well as a very cool UI for it, which allows custom rule building. We are continuing to work on this, and will update as we have details. (We can’t get more specific on a release date, but we’re working hard. Trust us: Shipping is a large support burden for us, and we know it’s can be a significant issue for you. We’re excited about this new system though.)

      In the meantime, there’s a LOT you can do currently: http://wiki.foxycart.com/snippets/start
      If you need help with any of those shipping customizations just let us know in the forum.

          Update 2014.05.21: This is planned for a future release, but we aren’t sure where it’ll fit into the roadmap. In the meantime, it’s possible with some custom javascript, and we can help you accomplish this if you email us at help@foxycart.com. Just provide the details of what you’re after and we’ll try to get you something to make it happen.

        • Multi-Lingual Sites, "Template Sets"

          Ability to have multiple languages (with multiple different cart/checkout/receipt templates to correspond with the selected language) per FoxyCart store.

          Also: The ability to have multiple templates (template for event registrations, donations, products; all in the same language) per store.

          Edit: Changed "Or" or "Also", since this single request covers both (and more).

            As of FoxyCart v1.0+, multiple languages per store is supported via Twig. Unfortunately, there’s no UI for it at this point, but if you need it, let us know and we can walk you through.

          • Tax-Inclusive Prices & Tax Rates

            Ability to set a tax-inclusive rate, so a product with price=50 and an inclusive tax of 10% would actually display a tax line item of $5 on the cart/receipt. When voting, please provide feedback (including the country you need it for) on this request if you do vote for it.

            There's a workaround here: http://bit.ly/ce00cA

              We do plan on improving our systems to handle this. Unfortunately, we don’t have a timeframe, but it is high up on the request list.

              UPDATE 2014-12-10: We are aware of the changes to the EU VAT coming in 2015, and this feature is definitely planned. Thanks everybody for chiming in.

              UPDATE 2014-01-26: A user has made a working customization using Twig to change the cart display to get a VAT style cart and checkout working. Email us if you’d like that.

            • Pay by Check / ACH Debit

              Pay by (e)check added for gateways that support it.

              • Customer Portal to view Transactions, Subscriptions, and to Update Billing Info

                Even though FoxyCart is built to integrate, it would be useful to have a basic customer portal that displays past transactions (possibly with the ability to place re-orders or re-load a past transaction into their cart), active subscriptions (with links to transfer, update billing, or cancel), and a display of their current account information.

                • White Labeling / Reseller Pricing

                  White-labeled admin interface for your clients. (This is _not_ a self-hosted solution, but rather a white-labeled admin.)

                    2013-10-14: If you’ve voting on this or interested in it, could you please provide your use case in the comments? Specifically: What new functionality you’d want us to provide. How you’d like billing to be handled. The need that this would meet for you. And anything else you think would be helpful?

                    Thanks.

                  • Admin User Permissions, Fine Grained Access Control

                    Ability to give clients separate login and permissions to certain areas of FC admin. In our case this means giving our clients access to manage products and reports while keeping them out of other details of store setup. This would go nicely with a white-labeled admin.

                    • Relative datetime for sub_startdate

                      How about letting us set the sub_startdate/sub_endate using a relative number?

                      Examples:
                      two weeks from now
                      +2w

                      three days from now
                      +3d

                      half a month from now
                      +.5m

                      • Persistent Carts / Saved Carts / Wish Lists

                        The ability to save a cart, or save a cart ID for reference and attachment to a user in an external system (like a CMS).

                        This would allow not only for saved carts, but also for things like wish lists, recommended carts (if saved carts could be replicated), and "repeat my past order" types of situations.

                            Update 2012.05.10: We’re working on a new API, which includes this. We’ll update again when it’s documented and ready for you to use. Thanks for your patience. (Fwiw though in the meantime v0.7.2 allows for bulk importing of codes via the admin.)

                          • Advanced Tax API / Integration for External Sources

                            Allow taxes to be calculated by using a custom tax processing script (hosted by the store, not by FoxyCart). This would allow stores to do lookups for states like Washington, which has tens of thousands of records necessary to accurately determine taxes.

                            Link to Washington's site:

                            • Convert email CSS to inline styles

                              When sending an email receipt, run the email through a process that will convert all <style> tags and imported stylesheets into inline CSS. This is what Campaign Monitor does to email templates before sending them.

                              This should happen after the ^^ tags are replaced in the email template.

                              This is hugely important to anyone wanting to use FoxyCart's generated emails not only because the safest way to use CSS in an HTML email is to use inline styles since many clients ignore <style> tags completely and also because the HTML generated by the ^^ tags contains some inline styles that…

                                -- manipulate store settings (create coupon codes, re-cache a template), and
                                -- retrieve store data (like transactions, subscriptions, errors, etc.).

                                This would allow FoxyCart to be completely integrated into external systems.

                                  Update 2012.05.10: We’ve been working on our new API for a while, and this is part of it. We’ll update this request again when it’d documented and ready for you to use. Thanks for your patience.

                                • Store-specific Order ID / Transaction ID / Invoice ID #s

                                  The ability to control our own order numbers would be really helpful. In Authorize.net these are called "Invoice Numbers".

                                    Update 2014.05.21: No movement on this one. Though it’s come up a few times over the years, it’s probably not something we’ll be able to address before tackling some of the more requested features. That said, there are a few ways to make something like this work if it’s an absolute necessity, so please email help@foxycart.com if you really really need it.

                                  • Ability to duplicate a FoxyCart store

                                    At present there is no way to delete test data from a FoxyCart store. IT would be great to be able to do so or failing that have the option to create a duplicate of an existing store minus the customer data.

                                    • no javascript required checkout

                                      The ability for customers to add products to their cart and checkout with out JavaScript enabled.

                                        2014-03-24 Note: Please continue to vote and comment on this if you’d like. This is one of those things that “we should do”, but since we launched in 2007, javascript has become even more ubiquitous.

                                        If you comment, please let us know if you have a practical or pragmatic reason for requiring a non-js fallback, or if it’s just “because it should be progressively enhanced because that’s the right way to do it”. Not to minimize that it is the “right” way, but in the 7 years since we launched this has been a shockingly small request, so we want to get a better handle on why people need a non-js fallback.

                                      • Standalone Checkout, Checkout API, FoxyCart as Gateway

                                        The ability to use the FoxyCart checkout completely programatically would allow an insane degree of flexibility. Create a completely custom checkout form or order process, for example, or use FoxyCart inside of non-website settings (like Adobe AIR, Flash, etc.).

                                        • Multiple downloads for 1 price

                                          There should be an option to have multiple downloads for 1 price. For example, you should be able to sell an album with all seperate tracks for say, $11.99. Not price each song individually.
