  1. RSS to Email

    Whereas a good number of people like to see their RSS content delivered to their inbox as an email message, rather than view it in an RSS reader, I would really love it if 1ShoppingCart would provide an automated means to pull new content from my blog's RSS feed and email it to a list of subscribers who have explicitly signed up for this kind of distribution. I notice AWeber does it...you guys should too!

    • Split-Test Lists

      Hi 1Shop,

      It will be GREAT if we can do more and better testing with emails.

      One major point:

      Let us be able to test email messages to a specific list/autoresponder group.

      If we can send 1/2 of the mentioned list, one email. And the other 1/2 of the list, a second email.

      What would be great, is if it was easier to take a sample from a specific list and do the above described test.

      Also, that any subsequent email to the same list, can exclude the first sample group...
      i.e. If I did a test:
      - Sample Group…

      • Created a mergecode for secondary affiliate programs so I can email affiliate link to folks

        Most of our users only use our secondary affiliate program (only a few use the primary program). I have no way to email the affiliate link to them. I must write out the steps on how to obtain it. Many of our users can easily copy and paste a link but are not able to follow the steps to find the right affiliate link to use. We are losing a lot of referred sales because we don't have a way to supply our affiliates with their affiliate link (we can only tell them how to find it)...

        • Merge code would be fixed to capitalize their name.

          Currently, if someone opts in without typing their name with correct capitalization, 1SC's merge code does not fix this. So people see: "Hi melissa."

          It looks unprofessional to not capitalize their name in communication.

          • When we send out a broadcast we should have the ability to also send it to facebook, and twitter

            When we send out as broadcast we should have the ability to send the title and the link of the broadcast through facebook and twitter. This is one of my favorite options in other email programs, that option would make this site great in my opinion. The broadcast get archived, and can all be looked at on a single page, great feature!

                • Alphabetize the Autoresponder list on the Recipient Page when sending a Broadcast.

                  When setting up a Broadcast, when I come to the "3. Recipients" page, and Target by Autoresponders, the list window is not in alphabetical order. This makes it extremely time consuming and cumbersome to target and exclude all the right lists (we have several hundred lists).

                  I've heard that this used to show in alphabetical order up until recently. Is it possible to adjust this so it shows alphabetically again?

                  Thank you!

                    • Added features are needed to allow for remarketing!

                      Abandoned cart feature is necessary!! And the ability to store broadcast result data for more than 90 days! It is of key importance to be able to remarket to customers based upon the fact that they abandoned their shopping cart. This is a basic feature that should be integrated as soon as possible.

                        • Get the wonky formatting fixed in the broadcast text editor

                          When I type a broadcast, the font and spacing can look perfect, and then when I hit send and see a preview, it's all messed up. When I try to edit fonts and spacing, it doesn't always take. I am often sending email blasts that don't look good or professional. Not happy.

                          • link tracking by date

                            I'm a huge fan of 1SC. If you could add the feature to search link tracking by date that would increase its value 100x. Currently, you have to "guess" how you're doing last month to now... thanks!

                              • enter you tube videos easily like constant contact.

                                remove the 'iframe' I think I was told it was called by your support and make it easy to insert a you tube video. In constant contact they've got it sorted, how about following them. You Tube is the highest ranked engine for videos, we want to use them for our customers.

                                • Provide message forwarding & verified opt-out

                                  One thing I like about Constant Contact is their "forward to a friend" feature, which generally works better that manually forwarding HTMl emails from inside a mail program. Also, since many people still use their mail program to forward messages, having the verification check on the unsubscribe link does help avoid unintentional unsubscribes from forwarded messages.

                                  I could see similar functionality implemented with merge codes in 1ShoppingCart

                                      We are working towards auto-saving in the key composition areas: Broadcasts and Autoresponders.

                                      We have completed our efforts in the Broadcasts section, and will release these changes to Autoresponders in our November release.

                                      Please provide us more information on what activity you were performing when logged out, and where you feel we can improve the system with automatic recovery.

                                    • Provide a way to format date merge fields

                                      I think the use of %$today$% and other fields is great, but I wish I could specify the format for the date. It prints out as "02-25-2010", whereas I would prefer "2/25/2010".

                                      Perhaps a Profile setting for "Preferred date format" which would allow us to specify a custom format (like in programming languages aka: "m/d/yyyy"), then this setting could be used for all date merge fields...

                                        • Customize from section of broadcast so not from @bizmailtoday.com

                                          Be able to customize "from" section of broadcast so instead of 999999@bizmailtoday.com it can say CompanyName@bizmailtoday.com
