  1. Americart Migrations Sparkpay should review websites for design conflicts

    Having a forced migation placed on our website and than having to be told after the fact about required server for code changes, limitations and security diffrences should not come AFTER the migration has been completed.

    Sparkpay could have reviewed the website and detailed necessary changes from one service to the other weeks or even months before the changes.

    Rendering a sellers website inoperable to selling product due to a lack of details and a failure of communication of the needed changes has been fustrating when the issued could take days and weeks of re-coding a website to resolve.

    • Filter Orders by Customer Type

      We would like to Filter Orders by Customer Type. The information is already in the orders database, so a couple of check boxes and entry boxes should do it. For example, filer by Customer type and then order the set by order date or customer name or order dollar size.
      Thank you.

      • Default "Is Primary"

        I added a new photo for a product, and deleted the old one. Then I wondered why the new photo wasn't showing up on the Category and Store pages. Turns out that the "Is Primary" box hadn't been checked for the new photo, even though there only was one photo, so it necessarily had to be the primary.

        So my suggestion is: if a user deletes all but one photo, the photo automatically should get "Is Primary" checked.

        • Have your online sales staff research topics before trying to pitch your product. Your rep did not have the solution promised.

          Serve your customers with Integrity. You may be playing a numbers game, tying to make money. but you will make much more money in the long run by being honest with your customers about what you can deliver upfront . I have lost valuable time and money and you will now lose money through the valuable loss of my business and future business, and all the people I am associated with that I will unfortunately have to tell to steer clear of Sparkpay.

          • Be able to Restrict PO Box entry on ship to address

            Have the option to restrict PO Box entry in the ship to address. Need to have a physical address and not just PO Box number. This causes issues with UPS and Fedex.

            • Merge Code for current page URI

              Can Spark Pay implement a merge code that will give me the current page URI / current path? As in, the part of the page address that comes after the domain name?

              In JavaScript, I'd use something like `window.location.pathname`

              In PHP I'd use `$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']`

              • Automatic URL Redirects when you change a custom or any URL

                When you change a URL from what other than what has been originally created instead of going through the headache of doing a re-direct why can't it redirect it automatically. For Example if the URL is:

                https://thecandylandstore.com/my-old-product and you change it to

                https://thecandylandstore.com/my-revised-product

                A message would come up saying: Create an automatic re-direct for this product? Y/N

                • Minification of all CSS and JS

                  There are CSS and JS files in the /store/inc directory that are not minified and cannot be accessed by customers. This is an important aspect that Google uses for scoring sites in general. Without minifiying all resources all sites will be penalized by Google, Bing and Yahoo as sub optimal.
                  As these files are static in nature it is requested that they are minified as part of your regular SDLC.

                  • Add Box Sizes to the Settings > Shipping so we can specify which box to use for items not shipped individually

                    I think it is imperative that Spark plans to add this in the near future as FedEx and UPS have both switched to dimensional weight completely in 2017, and the box sizes should be part of the calculations.

                    The idea of Box size is very simple, as our previous e-commerce provider had it. This is how it was set up:

                    1. Create a setting in Settings > Shipping to add Box Sizes. The entry will be very simple, it will contain the fields Name, Length, Width and Height

                    2. On the item side, create a field that when SHIPS INDIVIDUALLY…

                    • Adding the ability to use arguments with custom merge codes

                      It would be a really useful and powerful feature if we were able to add arguments to our custom merge codes like adding an argument to a function in a programming language.

                      • allow $$BILLINGADDRESS$$ merge code to be added to packing list

                        Right now billing address does not show on packing slips and it's a necessary feature. If someone sends something as a gift but does not include a message the recipient has no idea who sent it.

                        • Dual Inventory

                          If two unique ItemNames share the same ItemNumber, inventory for both ItemNames will be the same since they have the same ItemNumber. For example, if I had two products called Blue Painting and Green Painting, but each had the same ItemNumber, T1344, both products would share the inventory of ItemNumber, T1344 because they are technically the same product, just named differently.

                          • Add SurePost Shipping from UPS to Save Customers Money on Shipping!

                            UPS delivers smaller packages (9 LBS and under) to the post office for delivery rather than delivering them by truck. This program (SurePost) saves the customers money on shipping, several dollars per package. There are some shopping carts that already offer this service.

                              • Better customization of Google product feed

                                Let us choose what feeds into the Google Product Feed fields.

                                Example:
                                Currently, the Google "title" field is populated with the ItemName, and unlike the description field, there is NO way to change this.

                                Google's TITLE field is THE MOST IMPORTANT FIELD.

                                The ItemName field is also important to my store - it's the main thing people see when browsing categories. What will work best for the product feed's title often does not work well in my store for the Item's name.

                                Let me customize!

                                  Css editors have a css validation. It is more stict than css standards requires. An error is shown in the Global Css Editor when the css is invalid. None is shown in the Css Editors for page parts, for example, for Footer. So you don't see that the css is not saved.

                                  • Fix Product RMA - allow for quantity returning and reason for return, also shorten the 32 character RMA #

                                    The RMA system is missing some basic fundamental features, like giving a reason for an RMA, or how many product are being returned.

                                    If i don't know why the product is being returned, i don't know if i need to provide a replacement, refund or reject the product.

                                    Also 32 characters is too long of a RMA #, the ability to shorten it, and maybe offer options to allow for alpanumeric, numeric, pre, and/or post characters.

                                    • Merge codes for 'unit of measurement', 'product discounts', and total discounts on invoice.

                                      In the Shopping cart, we have the ability to show units of measure (roll, ft, meters, ea. etc...), as well as product discounts as line items (for each product). This is great.

                                      However, once we get to the checkout, we lose the merge code to show units of measure. Then, once the customer actually places the order, they see an order confirmation screen that also has no unit of measure. Finally, the 'printable invoice' as well as the invoice I have accessible to me (which I use for the packing list), doesn't have the unit of measure OR the line…

                                      • Implement Google's PageSpeed Module to provide content faster, more effectively & reduce Bandwidth

                                        The SpeedPage module can decrease download time by almost 16X which helps with Google ranks as well as reducing bandwidth (which is a killer in Spark because is so limited) and provides a better experience for the clients.

                                        The module is very easy to install and it will allow clients to use if they want (not to say that Spark core code shouldn't use it either, specially for CSS and JS files)

                                        Read more about the module here:

                                        https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/module/

                                        This is also a good blog that explains what it does:
