AbleCommerce

Thank you for taking the time to let us know how we can improve AbleCommerce. You can vote on up to 10 features or use a vote to add a new feature request. Please take a minute to look at the features that have been requested before submitting a new request.

The more votes a feature has means the more likely it will be added to a future release. Features with only 1 vote are rarely considered, so please make sure to cast your vote for one of the many ideas already posted. Anonymous votes and using multiple emails will be disqualified! Please enter your email address to register.

  1. Ability to assign a product its own shipping method

    It seems that we always run into a problem where we have a product that really needs to only ship by one particular shipping method. Even though it may qualify for many by weight. Possibly the item only needs to go in an envelope or it cannot go by media mail or it is fragile and lightweight but really only needs to ship in a box by UPS. Setting up exceptions for it in "vary by weight" loses it's effectiveness when you have hundreds of products. We have products setup where the vary by weight is .01 oz to .02…

    This feature has many votes, however, we will not be able to consider it unless we receive some comments or suggestions about why this couldn’t be accomplished using warehouses. When we are asked to change the logic of a major feature, we are very hesitant to do so as it can cause huge problems for the original design and function as it was intended to be used.

    Please submit your comments by Feb. 1st or the request will be closed.

  2. Coupon - extended variation

    It would be really usefull if we could get cupons or rules on product like this:

    Buy this product and get this product for free
    Buy for this amount and get this product for free
    Buy this and this product and get this product for free

  3. Integration: Mailchimp and Mandrill for Email

    This request is for Mailchimp and Mandrill Email integration.

    An ideal integration opportunity would create new APIs in ablecommerce to allow more external control in the email side of the platform.

    For a Mailchimp integration, the requested features would be:
    -- Sync between mailchimp email records and ablecommerce customer records:
    ---- 2 way sync so that changes made to customer record in Ablecommerce are reflected in Mailchimp and vise versa.
    ---- List signup would appear in a conLib file that can be used in:
    ------ Checkout ( frontend and backend in case a phone order customer would like to be…

  4. Improve Search Functionality

    Search needs a lot of work to make it more powerful as search is the main way people interact with the web now.

    Currently the search is lacking in terms of what's acceptable today. For example, right now search fails with variations in spacing or plurals. The search needs to be made more "fuzzy". A search for "mainspring" or "main spring" should return results matching either term. Also "sight black" should return same results as "black sight" (maybe with different order or relevance).

    Putting a checkbox next to the search box allowing user to select whether to search titles only…

  5. Index added webpages so search results include them

    Currently search only returns product results, not content from added webpages. Can you add indexing for static webpages as well, so the search is truly sitewide?

    UPDATE 2: In case someone is interested, we have a developer Wiki article which has some instructions and sample code to integrate Gold with Google search.
    http://wiki.ablecommerce.com/index.php/Integrating_Google_Search_API_to_AC_Gold
    -—————————————————
    UPDATE 1: We are still looking into this request. Unfortunately, it didn’t make it into the last version. It will require significant changes to the search queries which are already very complex.

    It is still under consideration though. Hopefully, it will be possible. If we had more votes, that might influence the decision to add it.
  6. Show an Order Notes Indicator on Order Management List

    I would like to see if there is a way to show a flag or icon on each order in the order manager list that tells us at a glance if there is a note on the order. The old Able Commerce used to do this, but Gold does not.

  7. Automatically detect and adjust for daylight savings time (DST)

    Please remove the requirement for admins to change a time zone setting in the admin area. The store should detect when DST changes and automatically adjust as most sites such as PHP forums do. Consider a UI such as a time zone selection then "auto-adjust for DST" checkbox or something along that line.

  8. Allow coupons to be added in admin after order completed

    My client is a B2C company who is migrating to AbleC. Often users forget to give the coupon code when they submit their order (or in the old system mixed up the coupon field with the keycode/account field and put it there or in the order comments only, although the former would no longer be involved with the AbleC cart.) or someone places a phone order but calls back with the code released that day through an email blast, before the order gets shipped.

    We realized a bit late that correcting this isn't possible in a similar enough method on…

  10. Integrate with the new "Pay with Amazon" since "Checkout by Amazon" wont accept new merchants

    Amazon is not accepting new merchants for "Checkout by Amazon" since they launched "Pay with Amazon." Is able going to be able to integrate with the new "Pay with Amazon?"

  11. Show Stock Status in grid display

    There may already be a way to do this that I haven't found. But it would be so much more user friendly if they could see stock status at the grid display level and have a sort based on stock status. In today's world they all want to know if you have it and when they can get it.

  12. Allow items to be in multiple warehouses

    We have a lot of items that we both dropship and stock. If a customer has a big order of different items, we take it from our inventory instead of having 5 different shipments. Other times we may elect to dropship a whole order if the items are all from one vendor and the order has a "dropship" only item.
    If an item had two warehouses - one for my In Stock and one for dropshipping, I could select the warehouse on the View Order screen and my inventory count wouldn't get all screwed up. This would also help out…

  13. Discounts rolled in to price

    It would be nice to have the option of displaying prices in the basket and rest of checkout with the discount roll in to the price instead of having it show on another line.

  14. Amazon Feed For Products, Inventory, And Orders

    I have been searching up and down for 3rd party software to be able to upload our current products to Amazon for Sale, and to be able to process our Amazon Orders from.

    Unfortunately all these systems are super expensive and cost around $400 per month to use and another % of all the transaction fees.

    Can you please try to make an Amazon feed so we can easily share our products on Amazon for sale and process our orders from Able Commerce directly?

    I see a bunch of other shopping carts that have integrated with these 3rd party software…

  15. Support social network authentications

    ASP.NET 4.5.x now supports other authentication options such as Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and Twitter. As AC uses basic forms auth in the most basic form, it seems that AC could enable these other forms of login to the web site. This may be something to consider for a future release to support other auth schemes to make it even easier for shoppers to sign in.

  17. Limit Payment Options by Zone

    It would be nice to limit the available payment options on the frontend by zone. It can use the existing zones used for shipping options. This way I can limit certain countries to PayPal only instead of credit card as a means to limit fraud orders before they are placed.

  19. Show out of stock variants

    Please show out of stock variants instead of removing them from the available variants. An out of stock message would be great to show the customer the status. On the variant grid display, there needs to be a stock indicator as well.

    You can show the out-of-stock variants by adding an availability date. In Gold R12, there is a new feature so customers can signup to be notified when the itme is back in stock.

    I’m leaving the status of this request as “under review” because we would like to add a store option to show out-of-stock variants without the dependancy on the availability date.

  20. Add support for CDN

    It would be nice if AC has the feature to support the use of a CDN for static files (images, js, etc)
