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. Allow extra data to be returned from custom shipping endpoints

    It looks like the custom shipping endpoint *should* allow custom data to be returned along with the shipping live rate data, in that I can set up extra data fields and send them along with the payload, but they never makes it into FC.json data, I think you must be post-processing the payload and stripping anything not explicitly necessary for the live rate data?

    anyway, it would be cool if I could return extra data when necessary, for instance for my customers admin email they need to know shipping container dimensions, total weight, how many ship units, etc. and this…

    • Ability to specify own SMTP Servers

      While we can configure SPF this can cause problems when you hit max SPF lookups (which is easy to do when using lots of third party systems).

      In addition it still means we authorise Foxycart to send any email on our behalf.

      Preferred would be the ability to specify our own SMTP servers for outgoing email. We then have full control over SPF, DKIM and DMARC settings.

        This is planned. DMARC becoming more widely used is certainly problematic for many users. We don’t have a timeframe on it, but it’s definitely being discussed internally, and we’ve got an Enterprise Plan user who needs it as well.

        UPDATE 2017-05-09: We have this in QA, and are working to improve our handling of situations where the SMTP connection fails.

      • Sendy Integration

        Integration for Sendy. Sendy allows for Newsletter marketing at a much lower cost than other programs since they are hosted on Amazon S3. So we could have 10,000 subscribers for $1 a month.

          • Ability to retain gateway credentials

            It would be useful for those who process via multiple merchant accounts to be able to switch them over without having to reenter the credentials in the foxycart admin.

            • FraudLabs Pro

              This is a 3rd party fraud module that is currently integrated into several carts such as opencart. The users can use it for free as long as it is less than 500 orders per month.

              Foxycart should consider to support it.

                Thanks for the suggestion. We’ll keep this one in mind. We’ve got a few others that we’re planning on integrating as well. Unfortunately, we don’t have a timeframe for when we might be able to look at adding this, but we appreciate the recommendation.

                • Customer Tax ID validation / verification

                  For tax-exempt customer functionality, it'd be nice to validate the Tax ID where possible (like using VIES system for the EU). If you vote for this, please comment noting which countries you're concerned about, and your desired use case.

                        • Include subscription status in subscription XML datafeed

                          Currently it is difficult to differentiate whether a subscription appearing in the subscription XML datafeed is there due to a cancellation or because the subscription has ended. Including a subscription status of "canceled", "complete", or "failed" would make filtering and processing the subscriptions datafeed much easier.

                          • Purchase Subscriptions as Guest

                            Currently if a subscription is added to the cart, the purchaser must create an account and cannot checkout as a guest. This interferes with how some organizations operate who prefer to manually manage the dunning process.

                            • Multiple Origin Postal Codes

                              Multiple Origin Postal Codes - this would allow for accurate shipping rates to be displayed when products ship from different locations. Store owners could drop ship directly from a manufacturer or ship from one of more physical locations and charge customer accurate shipping rates at time of purchase. Therefore, each product would allow a postal code to be entered/passed through to the shipping engine for calculation of freight.

                                  • full screen

                                    Full Screen Mode for checkout/cart template editor textareas would be awesome. I'm sure most people copy/paste the code into an editor as I do to make it readable, but it could be nice to be able to make the textarea larger, like this: http://burakson.github.io/fseditor/.
