  1. 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.

    • 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…

      • location and shipping method menu

        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.

        • add functionality which would allow an absolute discount amount to be deducted from each item ordered.

          Allows discounting each item purchased instead of a discount on the entire order.

          • 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

            • Show 'From $ ... ' on 'Buy Now' for items with variable pricing instead of base/default price..

              Hi,

              1. We have option of setting combination for any product. When in the product mode, the prices of the product changes dynamically as per option chosen.

              2. However, when in the product browser mode, it shows only the base price or the default price, which may cause confusion to a buyer who directly buys the product by clicking the buy now button, without going into the product detail.

              3. To remove this, I suggest that for combination products/products with variable pricing, instead of base/default price like '$ 100', it should show 'From $ 100'.

              4. I hope I am…

              • Search box reports

                I would like to be able to see reports of search inquiries to gain insight into most commonly searched terms and which pages are clicked on after searches. This would help with adding new products or restocking certain sizes.

                • Add coupon code variable to the tracking code on thank you page

                  You Wrote:

                  Hello,

                  thank you for contacting us! At the moment Ecwid supports only three variables in the tracking codes: %order_id%, %order_total%, %order_subtotal%. No variables for other data like coupons/discounts are available yet.

                  We understand, how useful it would be, if more variables were supported in the tracking codes in Ecwid. And we are very sorry that the functionality is not implemented yet. I will forward your request to the Product Manager Team for them to reevaluate the possibilities of supporting more variables in the tracking codes. No exact ETA for this, though.

                  • Limit free shipping coupons by destination zone

                    A FREE SHIPPING coupon code for USA customers only ....since international shipping costs a lot more and can be up to $65 for Priority Express international...anyway to also change the promotion options to certain products or categories since it would help sell higher end products for free shipping advertising.

                      • minimum order for customer group

                        We need to set a mimimum order value just for trade customers - retail customers can order a single item, but would like trade to have to bulk order, the customer groups part is there in Ecwid, but not the ability to set minimum order value JUST for those trade customers.

                              • Ability to Import Discount Pricing

                                I was using Muse and Ecwid and they work very well together. However I ran into a problem on the Ecwid side of things regarding importing discount pricing. (And to be fair, it's not just Ecwid...Shopify, Business Catalyst, etc. can only import 3 different price levels).

                                So yes, although I can manually key in all of our price discounts (we have 144 items with 1,440 different discounts) this is not feasible as all of them can change often.

                                To have the ability to import via .csv all of the discounts attached to a product would make Ecwid the only ecommerce…

                                  • New Control Panel Design, Store Name in Header

                                    In a recent Control Panel design update (June 2015) the store name was removed from the header (top) of the control panel. I'd like to request to bring back this option, or at least allow a setting to turn this on (off by default). We have multiple stores and open each in different browsers. Trying to QUICKLY determine which store we are in is not simple. I know I can click my name, then see it. We are transferring products, quantities and/or product details from one store to another quite a bit. Or we are simply monitoring each for sales,…

                                    • Make the number of uses of a coupon configurable

                                      i would like to see the number of uses of a coupon configurable in addition to just unlimited and single use. We are a volunteer organization and use the system to book classes. We give vouchers for free classes to our volunteers. If we could assign the number of uses to a coupon we would not have to track the volunteer's vouchers separately. I am sure there are other use cases for this as well.

                                      • allow the owner to see the customer's favorites.

                                        I would like to see my customer's favorites so that I can create a gift registry or send them surprises from their lists.
