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.

  1. ability to print fedex shipping labels directly from foxycart!

    I'd like to be able to print Fedex labels directly from the Foxycart site instead of having to cut and paste into the Fedex online site.

    • 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.

      • Insert Unique Codes into Email Receipts

        The ability to upload a list of unique codes for inclusion in an email receipt would be useful. Could include unique download codes, coupon codes, or etc.

        • Get store version via API

          It'd make good sense to get the store version programmatically via the API. This would make sense for any CMS plugins that needed to respond dynamically to parsing the different XML formats.

          • kunaki

            Create easy integration with Kunaki (DVD and CD fulfillment.) This would entail an XML generation application. There are many inexpensive third party vendors out there. Having it be a part of Foxycart would be hands-down an ultimate solution for digital vendors!

            • Subscriptions: Email Reminder for Customer

              My customers hate automatic billing. I get several complaints every month saying they forgot, were surprised by the charge and want to cancel, or even that they overdrafted their account because of the charge. I would like to see FoxyCart have an email reminder get sent to the customer 3 days before the payment is made. There could even be an option where the customer has to opt-in each month and click the URL to process the payment (good for stores with very finicky customers) or can click a URL to opt-out of auto-billing. I would rather take the monetary…

                • Accepting Pre-Orders

                  Accept a product as a pre-order with an estimated ship date. This would function similarly to a subscription with a future start date, but would be a one-time charge, and it would _not_ automatically run. Rather, pre-orders would be run manually (in a batch) via the API or admin.

                  • Saved Transaction and Subscription Filters

                    The ability to save specific filter configurations would be great, like a filter for "transactions which aren't archived but didnt hit the datafeed" or etc.

                      • Post-Dated One-Time Payments

                        Allow post-dating a one-time payment or possibly an entire order (less subscriptions).

                        (e.g. Secure the commitment to pay today (minus upfront deposit), and post-date capturing funds for the remaining total due till some date in the future)

                          • email coupon codes template

                            I'd like to be able to email coupon codes to either prospects or existing clients - basically a list that I have.

                            I'd like to include the coupon code, valid dates and any restrictions - the parameters that I have to specify when the coupon is created. Right now, I have to copy everything manually.

                            Even if this ability is not built in to Foxycart, if there was a button to click to generate this data in a pre-formatted form that can be copied/pasted into an email would work.

                                  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.

                                    Update 2015.10.22: The hypermedia is now available, and though we don’t have anything official to share, this topic is something we discuss internally relatively often. We’re also discussing allowing git-based store creation/duplication/backup functionality, but again, nothing officially in the plans yet.

                                    Update 2014.05.21: This is something that will be more of a possibility when our new API becomes publicly available, and it’s something we certainly see the value in.

                                    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…

                                    • Full-alpha PNG images in default theme

                                      It would be awesome if the PNG images in the default theme/templates had full alpha transparency, rather than the current jagged baked-in-antialiasing-on-white-background.

                                      This would make it easier to drop the default theme into a wider array of sites, such as those with colored or dark backgrounds.

                                      I know IE6 doesn't support proper PNG transparency, but IE6 is way old hat by now. Devs who need to support it can make their own old-fashioned PNGs.

                                      • Detect subscriber duplicating subscription

                                        If subscriber tries to renew early either extend the current subscription and move next transaction date or warn them this will create a duplicate subscription. It's amazing how many times we've had to remove duplicates.

                                        • Purchase order or different payment options for different product categories

                                          Currently the payment methods selected are for all products in the cart. There are cases where certain product categories would offer different payment options. For example wholesale products can also purchase via purchase order.
                                          Or downloadable products can only pay via credit card, but others also via purchase order.
