    Maybe have a checkbox on the Edit Address screen for the order, where if it is checked, when you click the save button it will update the profile address. This way if an order needs a one time change, it can happen without updating the profile.

    If this does get implemented, can it be a general connector? This way multiple systems can get used.

    For example, have a general API or setup where the following CDNs could get used.

    Hello Bugman,

    I am not sure if what your looking for is possible. I completely agree that is really inconvenient the way it is now, because sometimes the customer forgets to completely finish the checkout process and we are left on our end with an open order. But in my own research I havent found any info on PayPal making it so that you can do PayPal payments on your site. I believe that they want to control the customers user information (email/password) and protect it from any security flaws in your site. Also, when the customer gets redirected to Paypal, thats a psychological thing to them that they are only entering their Paypal info on the Paypal site.

    Maybe the Able team has been able to come up with a better way to handle PayPal payments, but I wouldn't get my hopes up on being able to do the whole thing on your site.

    Hello Bugman,

    can you post this request in the forums? I will post my custom code in the forums for you to put on your site. Its not like the order notes where you can have multiple notes per order, instead its just one textarea field that you can have notes in and use on the customer page and new order screen.

    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.

    Hello Everyone,

    I think the biggest problem with warehouses is that you are by default left with multiple shipments when your order contains items from each warehouse. If you have more than 2 warehouses this can easily balloon the shipments for the customer and frighten them off before purchasing anything.

    Here is my idea for an implementation of this idea.

    On the Edit Product screen in the “Shipping, Tax, and Inventory” section, have a multi-select list box for Shipping methods. It would pull the available methods from the selected warehouse, and give the user the chance to select one or more options. The selected options would be stored as a list of IDs in a new field in the Products table, “ShippingMethods”. If no options are selected, then all are usable.

    Then for the calculation ( I admit it might be complicated and might cost more resources to run especially if someone has a lot of items in their cart ), load all of the basket items and the ShippingMethods field.
    - Do an initial loop to see if there are any basket items that don’t have a null ShippingMethods field.
    - If there aren’t any items flagged, then go ahead with getting the shipping rates for the basket using the rest of the existing rules that are in place (Ships Separately, Multi-Warehouse, etc).
    - If there are item(s) that are flagged, extend into another loop that will check to see what ShippingMethods are selected by the products and build a list(int shipMethodID, int #Products, array int ProductIDs) off of those methods (Keeping in mind that products with null fields allow all Shipping Methods and shouldn’t be used to build the list). After building that list do an extra check to see if all of the products allow the methods in that list we created.
    - If yes, create shipping rates based off of the shipping methods in the list.
    - If no, create new shipment(s) by separating the basket items based off of the list and ProductIDs that don’t play well with the others and try to arrange it so that as few shipments are made as possible. This is where Im getting a little fuzzy on how to accomplish it.

    Granted I do realize this is “pie in the sky” thinking and that it would require a lot of changes to the rate calculations. So I’m just posting this to keep the conversation happening. Maybe someone else will be able to expand upon it and flesh out the outline.

    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.

    Showing the option but disabling selecting that option with css/js would be a good compromise between the people not wanting to confuse their customers and the people wanting to show their customers all of the options for product x
