  1. Add Discounts when updating an order

    It would be great to be able to have the system auto add discounts that apply to a customer when an employee updates an order with adding products. We have wholesale customers that get product discounts, and when creating an order either on the frontend or via the admin, the discounts are automatically added when an item is added. However, a lot of our customers add to their order after it is placed and we have to manually add the discount as an "other item" and manually calculate it. Can there be a button to auto apply discounts when updating…

  2. 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)

  3. 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.

  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. Add and order import function

    Add a feature that allows customers to import orders from other sources. Give a file layout that if matched it can pull orders in very easily.

  6. Be able to assign an affiliate code when placing a phone order

    It would be great if, when taking a phone order for a new customer, we could assigning an affiliate code when in-putting the customer information. Or be able to assign an affiliate code to an existing order after the order is placed. Many of our affiliates call in their orders, as opposed to placing them online - and if I forget to create the customer record first, and then go back and place a order for them, I can't go back and change it.

  8. Zendesk Helpdesk Integration

    It would be great to have an integration between Ablecommerce and Zendesk ( https://www.zendesk.com ) in a similar way to how Magento does it ( https://www.zendesk.com/apps/magento/ ). Being able to see in the Ablecommerce admin the open tickets and ticket history of a customer would be a real timesaver as opposed to having to have both ablecommerce and zendesk screens open and searching for people in both systems. Maybe even down the road open the order notes feature up to being able to create tickets in Zendesk.

  9. Shipping charge calculation based billing weight rather than actual weight

    We currently offer flat rate shipping charge vary by weight which basically uses actual weight of each product. However, it doesn't work well for larger items low density items where dimensional weight becomes more important. There should be "vary by billing weight" method which looks at both cube and weight of a product. Dim weight divisor should be a variable allowing dimensional weight to be calculated using custom divisor (many shippers have contracts with custom dim weight divisor). Secondly, issue I see is in rate shopper from say fedex. It needs to use billing weight when pulling rates from the…

  10. NOTES field for CUSTOMERS rather than only for ORDERS?

    It's fine to have ability to store notes for a particular ORDER, how about notes on a per CUSTOMER basis? Like... "has refused 6 out of last 15 orders"... "has bounced 2 checks in last 90 days"... etc. Customer Profile area already exists... can a "Customer Notes" section be added to that?

  11. Allow custom URLs to be generated based on hierarchy and/or other criteria

    Currently, custom urls have to be manually entered. There should be a set of criteria you can set to automatically generate the custom url. New products should default to this url and there should be a tool to apply it in bulk to existing products. It'd be nice if 301 redirects were automatically created as part of this.

  12. Better integration with Paypal PLEASE!!

    As I'm sure you know, when customer pays with Paypal they must actually leave our Able store & login to Paypal to actually complete their payment (WHY can't it be done like a true credit card transaction - be completely effected in the background without customer having to leave our store?!?). When a payment is not completed, we would like an email to be AUTOMATICALLY triggered to notify the customer. We have tried the "Payment capture failed" trigger, but it does NOT trigger an email when an order is "completed" but the Paypal payment is not made. It looks like…

  13. Ability to assign specific products to the subscription feature

    Like a monthly wine club -- the ability in the recurring order subscription feature to assign specific products to each month's recurring orders - pre-defined when you are building the subscription product, and have them automatically populate the recurring orders, or at any point before the recurring orders are "placed" automatically. The product (or set of products or kit of products) would be based on a pre-assigned set of "kits" for a particular subscription (third month of the annual subscription, subscribers get X, Y, and Z), or based on which month the order is going out (In March subscribers get…

  14. Some help needed

    I wonder if it would also be possible have the invoice date field be editable?
    Some of the current 'defective' invoices must be resubmitted with up-to-date invoice dates and I cant see how we can currently do that, other than adding a new payment and deleting an old one?

  15. 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.

  16. Add CSS support to content editor (WYSIWYG) control.

    Update WYSIWYG to latest version TinyMCE and integrate theme's CSS.

    Also, add the CSS class dropdown to the editor's toolbar.

    This would allow admins to assign and view CSS classes within the editor (and not have to keep opening preview).

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  20. Exclude Product Handling Charge from Shipping Coupon

    It would be great to have an additional option in the create a new coupon screen, that new shipping coupons can have a boolen option to Exclude the Special Handling charge applied to products from the shipping coupon.

    I would like to offer free shipping coupons on storewide orders, but I have oversized products that have an additional handling charge that I would like to remain in use even when the free shipping coupon is used. As it is now, when I have the shipping coupon be 100% off, it includes the shipping charge, the shipping handling charge, and the…
