  1. Add Shipping Method "FedEx International Ground"

    You're missing one of the most important FedEx International options: Ground. We do a lot of business in Canada and the currently available FedEx Ground (non-international) under charges by almost $100 in some cases, and that's before we get hit with customs.

    We alleviate it somewhat by creating a Canadian shipping method and tacking on a flat $75, but that's clumsy and quite inaccurate for small items.

    The handful of other FedEx international options you support are either for small express shipments or large palletized freight (over 150lbs). If it's a matter of not supporting too many options, I for…

    • Shipping rate by item weight, not just total weight of shipment

      I sell wine throughout Australia. I sell various wines in two sizes— 6kg and 12kg to various zones in Australia (with their particular rates for each zone).

      Example:
      Metropolitan customer orders 3 x 6kg cartons and 1 x 12kg cartons. My courier's rate is $20 per 6kg carton and $25 per 12kg carton. Total should be $85. But ECWID only calculates shipping based on the total of 30kg. So my options are to overcharge at 4 x $25 or undercharge at 4 X $20.

      Because ECWID only allows you to set a range of weights, when a shipment total goes…

      • I suggest you to allow us to put product up to the store without a price

        For example in one of my store categorys i need to hide the prices as the product does not have a price, because the price is in the options of the product. So when a person goes to the category where products dont have a price it looks a bit stupid as it says the product costs £0.00. Basically i would like an option to hide the price tag in the store.

            • New Payment Status

              When payments are denied due to an incorrect billing address entered or any other reason, payment status is changed to Cancelled which does not let us distinguish between transactions actually cancelled or denied. It requires an additional check for the credit card processing system to identify an issue and then notify our client via email. This is a lengthy process! Perhaps you can evaluate a return code and based on it, introduce payment status Declined to make it clear for clients and users. It will definitely improve so many processes! Hope to see this new status description soon!

              • Promotion Bug

                I have received an order from a customer who used a promotional coupon.
                She bought 3 products each of these products had a fabric selection she needed to make.
                2 products she selected a fabric colour and the 3rd she did not make a selection (this is another problem, we need a pop up to let the customer know they did not make an important selection)).
                She used the coupon code but it only applied itself to the 2 products that she made a fabric selection, not the product that did not have a fabric selected.
                This is frustrating as…

                • Add sound notifications about new orders in Control Panel

                  Would like to have an aural sound attached to your APP so when orders arrived you could hear them. We are busy 7 days a week and our OLD store was very basic, but it had this aural cash register sound "cha'ching" when orders arrived vs running to check the email. Not only helpful, but motivating too. Thank you, John

                  • Numeric field as a product option

                    Some stores, such as a copy shop, sell services. Let's say that one of the products they sell is a printing service. The customer has to choose different price modifiers such as "print size" and "paper weight". He/she also has to upload the file that needs to be printed. But right now Ecwid doesn't offer a way to capture the number of pages that need to be printed in order to calculate the final price. If the quantity field at the end is used for "Number of copies", then there is no way to imput the number of pages. Would…

                    • improve CSS for Search Button by adding a line-height

                      The Search Button looks bad because it doesn't have any line-height
                      .ecwid-SearchPanel-button CSS should include a line-height.

                      • Provide the fearture for selling Activation Keys and Serial Numbers

                        Store owner would be able to import Activation Keys and Serial Numbers in a .txt or .xls file and you keep them encrypted in a secure database and when a client places the order and payment is made, store show the Serial Number(s) on the screen and also delivers the serial number(s) including how to activate it by email to the buyer. The shipped serial number should be marked as sold in database or even deleted.

                              When the customer is given the Location and shipping method menu.
                              Why do you not include in the delivery method an estimated delivery time ( Using Canada Post).
                              When I used the Canada post EST module on my last estore they included the shipping time.
                              This would greatly help the customer identify the correct shipping method if timing is a critical element in their decision process.

                                  We are the official LEGO Education Importer for Southern Africa and really love the look of ecwid and have started building our free trial store to see if it would work for us.

                                  You have MDS Collivery, a local courier, as a shipping partner, and it picks up our prices for shipping. But I've chatted to MDS and ordering through ecwid does not actually trigger an order with MDS with delivery and collection information; as it is currently we would need to manually go and arrange an MDS delivery after receiving the ecwid order. This is rather inefficient and can…

                                        • BankMega payment gateway integration Indonesia

                                          Please consider that Bank Mega payment gateway should be added in Ecwid. It is one of Indonesia's main banks and they have a simple post method which would work so easily with your system.
