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 vote and comment on it.

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

        • Make Shopping Cart Editable In Checkout Screen

          Currently, if a customer wants to delete something or change the quantity of an item in their cart on the checkout page, they cannot do so. They have to go back to the main website and view their shopping cart. This is a bit of a hassle. It would be nice if they could edit their cart in the checkout screen.

            LATEST UPDATE =====
            UPDATE 2013-08-09: We can’t make any promises, but we can say that our next release will likely address this. We’ll update further when we have a beta ready for people to test. Thanks for your patience!

            OLDER UPDATES =====
            UPDATE 2012-11-06: With v1.0 and the Twig template language (and Twig.js with the existing JSONP functionality), it is theoretically possible to make this happen. We haven’t yet done a proof of concept, but we are definitely taking steps towards this.

          • 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 2014-01-26: 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.

                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.

                  For example, I want to list prices in Canadian and US dollars and have the appropriate currency passed to FoxyCart.

                    • 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.

                        • 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.

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

                              two weeks from now

                              +3d

                              half a month from now
                              +.5m

                                There needs to be some way for a customer to specify that they are tax exempt. As it stands I have to actually turn OFF tax for their jurisdiction, and then turn it back on after they have ordered.

                                • 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:

                                      • API: Store Settings, Store Creations

                                        An API to
                                        -- create FoxyCart stores,
                                        -- 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.

                                        • 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…
