  1. Allow products to have multiple shipping dimensions for multiple packages

    Allow products to have multiple shipping dimensions because many items ship in more than just one box. This feature is necessary in order to capture actual shipping cost.

    For example, widget A is a large item and ships in two separate boxes:

    Box 1: 56 LBS and 24 x 24 X 12
    Box 2: 48 LBS and 12 x 6 x 20

    Some products ship in more than 2 boxes.

  2. Have a theme that is more SEO friendly.

    For example, an imap in the header where the cart, login and search buttons are. This would give less links and alt tags to the page and also give more prominence to the body text. The same could be done for the footer or portions there of.

  4. Remove ability to DELETE payments, or provide an audit trail

    I am new to Able... in fact my site is not live yet (hopefully next week!).

    While I think overall AC seems to be an EXCELLENT ecommerce package, I am a little disappointed in the accounting aspects.

    Primarily, I don't understand why it allows one to completely DELETE a payment. This would seem to open up a hole for potential theft.

    My suggestions would be (in this order):

    1) remove the ability to delete a payment - a refund is adequate to make a customer whole, or...

    2) make the ability to delete a payment a "special privilege" that must…

  5. Add Description field in Product Feeds section of Product Management Page

    I would like a textarea in the Product Feeds section of the Edit Product Page, that would allow me to enter a description for the google product feed. If the box is empty, then use the product description field to fill it. This way I can have a product description for Google that doesnt have any markup or extra text in it.

  6. Custom User Fields - Maybe User Group Templates

    It would be nice to easily comfigure additional User Fields through UI.

    Additional User data like "How did you hear about us?" is vital for online marketing efforts.

    Perhaps an implementation like Product Templates that could be assigned to specific User Groups. Along that mindset,

    Within "Merchant" and "User" fields, allow for settings like:
    ? Viewable by User?
    ? Editable by User?
    ? Is required?

    Support for related tasks would also be nice: searches, reports, import/export, etc.

    I realize this can be done programmatically using ac_UserSettings table, but a supported UI would be helpful.

  7. Add special price by product variant for user/group

    Currently, admins can add a special price (specials) for a product by user group (and/or date). However, if the product has variants setup with price override, the special is only used for the "base" product, any variant gets that standard price set for that variant. It would greatly increase flexibility of pricing to be able to set the specials by product variant for a particular group.

  8. Paypal automatic payment profile for subscription

    In case you didn't know, it looks like Paypal has some kind of automatic payment profile for subscription renewals. I upgraded some software and the purchase used that since I checked the option to automatically renew on the vendor site. It might be good to add that to your subscription features if you haven't already

  9. Add the ability to Pre-order items

    Some items can be purchased in advance. We would like to see a product attribute to allow pre-order. A second attribute should be available to 1) allow the customer to enter a delivery date, or 2) allow the merchant to enter a delivery

  10. Add Automatic Import and Export for ShipStation

    Automatic import, export and/or a quicker easier to use export page for Able Admin. It would be nice to automatically export to ShipStation all pending statuses every xx minutes, and import all shipped on a schedule too. Thanks!

  12. Folder Hierarchy without index numbers at the end of folders or pages

    Request to have folder hierarchy at least 3 deep, without the index numbers at the end of the folders or pages for the following reasons:
    For example, instead of:
    https://www.idautomation.com/IDAutomation-Code-128-Font-Advantage-Package-P43.aspx
    we need:
    https://www.idautomation.com/barcode-fonts/linear/code-128/
    This is According to Google SEO Best Practices AND for ease of use for end users typing in the URL. It also looks more professional. https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/7451184?hl=en
    This should all be automatic within the CMS capabilities. So for each product, you could have a category and subcategories that would create the folder hierarchy. Let this folder hierarchy also automatically create the breadcrumbs and anything else that helps SEO…

  13. Have categories show up with products in search results (with thumbnails)

    Many search terms most relevant result would actually be a category. I'd like to see categories integrated into the product search results.

  14. Additional Desktop Shipping Integrations

    We use Stamps.com for our USPS shipping. It would be great if Ablecommerce could integrate with stamps.com to expand on the Data Import/Export section of the site. Being able to have the desktop software communicate with the catalog to enable batch shipping/tracking would be an amazing time saver compared to manually entering everything.

    Stamps.com has a developer site, http://developer.stamps.com/developer/

    With the following developer solutions, http://developer.stamps.com/developer/products/

  15. Export/Import Order Shipments

    It would be great if there could be an additional Export/Import section in the admin to allow the export/import of order shipments.

    The Export Screen would allow the following fields:
    - Order #
    - Shipment #
    - Order Date
    - Shipping Address Fields
    - Shipment Value
    - Shipment Carrier
    - Shipment Method
    - Shipment Message
    - Shipment Items

    The screen would also allow the same filters as the orders export, but with the addition of filters based on shipping carrier/method.

    Also, to round out the system, an Import Order Shipment screen with the following fields:
    - Order #
    - Shipment…

  16. Create Product Bundles

    In order to increase AOV, if we could create product bundles with discounts easily - like how Amazon does it, that would be awesome. Able could have an algorithm that sees what is purchased most often with a product being looked at, have a rule in the background for x% off if products A and B are bought together.

  18. Product Variant Question for Verification

    When a product variant is chosen, or in our case a license type, allow a verification message to appear to make sure that is what the user really intends to purchase. For example, if I choose “1 User License” a popup should occur that states “The 1 User License is only for one user on one PC, other users will not be able to use the product. Are you sure? Y/N ” or in the case of clothes, if I choose size “Medium” a popup should occur that states “Size medium fits waist sizes 32-34 only. Are you sure? Y/N…

  19. Multi-channel integration for marketplaces (e.g., Amazon, eBay) and/or API sync

    We need inventory and order sync with marketplaces (in our case, Amazon and eBay) and our accounting program. This could be accomplished with in-built integration (as AbleCommerce has done with ShipStation) or with an API connector to cloud integration middleware.

    This is really two feature requests: 1) Marketplace sync, and 2) API connector for order export. I am combining these requests because they could be accomplished at the same time with middleware multi-channel integration.

    As of today there are 50 votes on this forum for for features related to cloud sync (if you add up all the votes for integration…

  20. Refer-A-Friend Feature

    This could be an extension to the existing Affiliate feature.

    It would also be nice to set the "referral reward" to be a specific product instead of a monetary amount.
