  1. 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.

    • custom shipping

      Some customers will pick up their order. I created a custom shipping method called "Hold for Pickup". $0 shipping costs. The problem is, it defaults to that method if you go straight to checkout. So, i have people checking out with "hold for Pickup" that need shipping. What if you had a button that would remove shipping costs. The text on the button could be modified. another option is, fix the current system so the customer is forced to select a shipping method.

      • 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.

        • Customer Edit Cart Option

          Customers should be able to edit their existing cart (items) at checkout. Currently customers can only revise quantity and remove an item from their cart. It makes it difficult when selling apparel if a customer needs to revise a size, or add a specialty customization, that they can't just edit their existing item, but need to remove and re-add an item.

            • Improvements to price calculator

              The Price Calculator needs these types of upgrades:

              1) Turn price calculators off vs. having to delete them.
              2) find items in the price calculator list with a Search feature.
              3) Provide more space in the calculator "applies to field" to not have to be limited to the amount of code I can use.
              4) More example in the RegEx Examples help files to show how to use more than one RegEx Example type per line.

              • Place a time limit option on saved or abandoned carts

                Provide a separate feature on the Admin Console to dump saved and abandoned carts after a predetermined length of time. I understand that there is a global Data Retention option but that won't work for us. Many of our customers order only a few times a year so we don't want to dump their history after only a short time. We have had occasions where the customer has retrieved a saved or abandoned cart with obsolete pricing and completed the order.

                • Americart, Sparkpay and your future....

                  I am posting this now, and it could be your only warning.

                  if you are an Americart user and your forced migration to run your secure check out behind the Spark Pay servers... GOOD LUCK!

                  My sales are off 40%, my existing website design was not compatable for sparkpays features and people who own MAC computers can view items at our website, but they can not shop anything.

                  If your shoppers use Chrome, shopping could be a 50/50 issue...

                  and expect to get a lot of phone calls from people indicating they can no shop your website. We use to…

                  • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • Customer Ability To Edit Subscription

                          User should be able to edit subscription. User should also be able to see multiple items within a subscription, not just the first product in a subscription. We have customers disable their subscription or create multiple subscriptions because they belive it is set up incorrectly or they add the second and third and fourth subscription because they only see one product is going to renew.

                          In reality the subscription has multiple products in it and it was correct the first time but the customer could not verify it. In the ned the customer inadvertently ships multiples of the subscription to…

                          • 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']`

                              • Price calculator needs page selector at the top of the pages ...

                                The price calculator has the page selector at the bottom but not the top. It's really annoying to have to scroll down 250 items on each page to choose the next page. Since the system seems to default to the top of the page ... either move the selector to the top or add one to the top of the page. Also it would be great if the system remembers what page you were just in so I don't have to write it down when I have to jump around to make changes.

                                  It's odd that when a search term is entered into the searchbox, the search dropdown only allows a copy/paste action into the searchbox on a click, rather than going directly to the item shown in the dropdown. If the system can see the item name, why can't it pull the link? Please fix!

                                  • 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…

                                    • 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.

                                        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

                                        • 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.
