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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

            • 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.
