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. 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.

  2. MULTI LANGUAGE WEBSITE!!!

    In this day and age, we should be able to offer our website in several languages. Why is there no app nor option for that. I hope this new acquisition will bring much needed change.

  3. auto save when making changes

    If there isn't an auto-save feature built in when making changes / adding information to any part of the admin, can you please make it so that as we are asked if we want our work saved before being allowed to move on to another section and do something that will delete what we just did. Even if a save button appears / floats which will serve as a visual reference, this will help save the time / energy that comes from repeatedly hitting save and / or losing a lot of work that was just done.

  4. lowest shipping method default

    I would like the lowest shipping rate to be selected for customers by default. The way the site works now, it shows UPS rates first, but if a customer has a really light weight item, the UPS rates scare them away from buying. Likewise, if customers with really heavyweight items were to see the Postal rates first, there would be problems.

    Several of my customers and one employee helping a customer have complained that they didn't even see the Postal shipping options on the site.

  5. 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.

  6. Aggregate all JavaScript and CSS files

    All JavaScript files should be aggregated into a single file before being served, same with CSS. I believe they will be gzip'ed automatically, so space characters aren't a huge issue, but it would still be preferable to "minify" both the JavaScript and CSS before serving them as well.

  7. add <meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow"/> to all "recommend a friend" asp pages

    add <meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow"/> to all "recommend a friend" asp pages. Why? because these are low quality duplicate pages and google applies a panda penalty to the whole site. All of your customers will benefit with better rankings once you do it. Help us make more sales and pay your hosting fees. Also using Disallow in robots.txt for RequestAFriend.asp pages is not enough!

  9. Allow Existing CRM Requests to be Linked to a New or Existing Customer Record.

    Because our store is setup to allow requests as a guest, we often get new customers asking questions via the CRM, only then to have it turn into a New Customer transaction. At other times, they are simply not logged in when posting the question, and then the CRM ticket gets orphaned in the process.

    There should be a way to manually link the CRM ticket to a customer account after the CRM request is posted into the system - and at any time after the fact. Once a Customer Record is created or discovered, the SysAdmin could go back…

  11. walmart

    Walmart Integration! Can we get a feed in the advance options like ebay to add our products to walmart? The only 3rd party is CEDcommerce which created much more work and extra steps. Lets make this as seamless as possible and keep the sales rolling through one platform (3dcart)

  13. Fix promotion manager

    Fix the section under "Promotion Rules" titled "Applies if these Products are in the Basket". Right now if more than one product is selected there the entire promo won't work and acts the same as if there are 0 products selected there. Make it so that multiple products are there. For example if a customer buys item "A", "B" or "C" they get a free item "D". Right now I would have to set up three promotions to make this work. With a fix I could do it with one promotion.

  14. You made a super easy to use admin panel

    Feedback on the new admin panel

    you guys made a super easy to use intuitive admin panel look fancier, but much less easy to use with the latest update.

    I used to be able to see today's sales, last Month's sales, overall year's sales, last years sales on the admin panel without having to change anything. Now I see statistics for last 30 days, but I'd rather see last month vs this month. Now to see the statistics I want I have to change the paramters 4-5 times to get each of those numbers. Its cool to see the stats…

  16. Would love to be able to temporarly hide/disable manufactures without having to delete.

    We like to only show currently available manufactures on our site. We would like to be able to temporarily hide a manufacturer without having to delete them.

    Often we need to not carry them because we are all out of stock or they could be seasonal. Having to delete and re-add them every time is a pain.

  17. 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.

  18. 3 Improvements to the Affiliate Program

    The affiliate program has great potential. Currently, it does not equip nor inspire affiliates to engage customers. With three improvements, it can become a very powerful marketing tool.

    BACKGROUND: The affiliate link for sharing via text, email and social media is the portion of the website embed code between the quotation marks. For example, if the website embed code is <a href="https://shop.gonmf.com/?AffId=13"> the affiliate share code is https://shop.gonmf.com/?AffId=13.

    OPPORTUNITY: To equip and motivate a salesforce to aggressively sell by sharing the affiliate link via text, email, FB Messenger, Instagram, etc.

    PROBLEM: Many affiliates (sales people) don't know how to…

  19. Advanced Options needs more fields

    Advanced Options needs more fields. Fields Requested:
    1. SUGGESTED RETAIL: Need this so that the Saving reflect the correct amount and percent when switching to higher/lower priced options.
    2. WHOLESALE/PRICE LEVELS: Need this so when a wholesale customer logs in and buys an item with with an Advanced Option the correct price is given to them
    3. HANDLING: Be able to add a handling fee per advanced option
    4. HIDE: You can only hide in Options. But if I am out of just the Black Large I don't want to hide all black or all large, just the black large.…

  20. Product page Admin Notes

    This was declined due to lack of interest. I don't visit this section so didn't see it. I'll make mention of it on the forum as well. I've wanted this for a long time but figured it would be too hard for you to do.
