Feature Requests

Thank you for submitting a suggestion to our uservoice portal. Before you continue please consider the following:

We try to make our software as full featured as possible for a wide range of users in order to help Shift4Shop merchants succeed in their respective businesses.

However, please understand that while your idea may be perfect for your individual business model, it may not work for all stores and situations. We’ve set up this feature request and suggestion portal for ideas that may be of a benefit to all users globally on Shift4Shop. Hence the voting system that is enabled on the portal.

With that being stated, please also understand that submitting an idea to this portal does not guarantee that the suggestion can or will be implemented globally on the service for all users. As a service, Shift4Shop has many facets where functionality is dictated by peripheral services and influences such as API connections to Shipping Carriers, contractual agreements and integration parameters with various payment gateway providers, database limitations and other factors that can affect the likelihood of a suggestion being implemented.

If a suggestion is declined, we will make every effort in our control to offer counter suggestions or alternatives to try, including 3rd party-partner services (browse through our App Store) or work arounds using the existing software as is.


  1. Update Store Blog Features

    It would be nice if the Store Blog had some additional features like a subscription button (not the one for newsletters), a search feature so your customers can search blog entries, ability to add widgets and other fun stuff to make the store blog more up to date and user-friends, especially for the customers. The idea is to get them in the store - even if through the blog!

  2. complete endicia integration

    The basic endicia integration is a tantalizing start, however it is missing:
    International integration (only canada is currently available)
    How to add insurance?
    How to add Signature Confirmation?
    How to use all of USPS package choices such as Regional Flat Rate A, B, & C boxes/rates?

    These questions are also posted in the forums:

  4. Promotion Manager: Ability to exclude a "category" for a promotion

    Instead of having to select all the categories you want a promotion to apply for, it would be nice to have a secondary box that allows you to select the categories you don't want it to apply for. This would really help as many of our customers have hundreds of categories, and selecting each one just to not allow a few categories takes forever. I know there is a workaround with excluding Manufacturers where you can create a new one and assign all those products to that, but it starts getting messy.

  5. Email a Packing List to Distributor

    My distributor (fulfillment provider) would like to be able to print an email to put in the box as the packing list. I'd like to see an option to enable auto-sending of an email to the Distributor that is a Packing List for each order. It must be suitable for the end customer and show price per item and not cost. (the current distributor fulfillment alert shows cost)

  6. Fix discounts for recurring orders

    Currently the entire discount from the originating order is applied to the recurring order. However, there may be discounts that dont apply to items in the recurring order.

    For example: in the initial order, two recurring items are purchased, and a $10 discount is applied to each of those items. One item recurrs every 15 days, the other items recurrs every 30. This gives a $20 discount on the initial order. because the recurring intervals are different for the items ordered, the discount should only be $10 on the recurring order that is generated on day 15. However, the system…

  7. Allow the date format to be changed to dd/mm/yyyy for Australian users.

    We are getting complaints from our Australian clients regarding confusing date settings. In Australia we use dd/mm/yyyy instead of the default settings of mm/dd/yyyy. All quality international systems allow for date formatting options by the admin. This is very disappointing that you fall short of this.

  8. Gift registry purchases need to be trackable/attributable to registrants

    1) As of now, there is no way for people who register for gifts to know who purchased the gifts for them. This seems to me something that is very fundamental for any gift registry.

    2) Also there should be a way for people who purchase a gift for someone else through a registry to write them a message and have it show up in the registrants account under the purchased gift.

    3) The website admin should be able to see in the order if it was through a registry, and which registry.

  9. Multiple Distributors Feature needs Inventory control for each warehouse. Need to be able to split inventories between warehouses.

    I have 2 warehouses. The multiple distributor feature has no inventory for each warehouse. This creates a huge inventory control problem.

  10. Affiliate Program Registration - Paypal Field

    Please add a Paypal (or payment) field for the Affiliate Program registration page (with the website, FEIN / SSN, etc..). Tracking sales and paying the affiliate are the only things that are truly important. There is no where they can put the email they tie to Paypal, Google, etc. for us to pay them.

    That's a 911. A "nice but eventually" solution would be to have that auto pay when commissions get to a certain number and let merchants also put their Paypal info in.

  11. Add FedEx International Ground as a shipping option

    We use FedEx International Ground for shipping to Canada since it is a more affordable option that International Economy or International Priority. Unfortunately, the integration with this service isn't available in 3dcart.

    We'd like to see it added.

  12. Daily Deal / Group Deal automatic emails

    I'd like the system to send an automatic email to subscribers / customers whenever a new Daily Deal or Group Deal becomes active. The email template should be customizable and (obviously) include the product(s) featured in the deal.

  14. Ability to collect a mailing list via our Facebook Store

    I have seen some stores on Facebook with a page where they can have users sign up for their mailing list. I know Constant Contact has an app for this but you have to be a Constant Contact user. I think 3dcart's facebook store app should absolutly include the ability for us to be able to collect a mailing list from Facebook and have the list tie into our store's master mailing list. Or at least allow us to be able to use the mailing list signup code in our Facebook store.

  16. Allow the URL field in 3dboost to target multiple URL queries

    This is highly valuable for doing customer targeting based on Google Analytics audiences, offline campaigns, & other segments. Currently you can enter only one url query, for example to get a 3dboost popup only when someone visits from a direct mail campaign (

    However, if you enter multiple queries (delimiters), it breaks the system. Adding to the previous example this does NOT work: yoursite.com/?utmmedium=directmail&&utmcampaign=florida

  17. Make it easy to review your inventory by adding a "Filter" button

    On the inventory report (/admin/reports-inventory.asp), provide an option that lets you filter the items by category, distributor, manufacturer (and any other relevant attribute).

    Otherwise, once your catalog is a few hundred (or a thousands+), the reporting screen is fairly useless.

    The Low Inventory Report lets you filter by distributor, but you have to also only see items that are below the stock alert, or at a stock level of 0-999.

  18. Be able to set shipping options for order quotes

    Currently, when you create an order and send it to a customer as a quote (having activated the order quote module), it doesn't matter if you choose a shipping option. It is not applied to the order. When the customer opens the quote it takes them to the site's checkout page where the system calculates and offers whatever range of shipping options they would normally have available.

  19. SALE Banners show up for Wholesale as well as Retail customers.

    We sell to Wholesale as well as Retail customers. Recently migrated our site with over 4,000 products, and usually 10-20% are on sale. The SALE Banners show up fine for Retail, but once a customer logs in as Wholesale, the SALE Banners will not show up. Please make this possible. Our wholesale customers are WAY more important. We would be willing to work with whatever way this could be done, as it is standard in the other platform we migrated from. Also, I echo the other suggestion to have Company Name show up with orders and searches. Thanks.
