          • Allow Handling Fee Per Order, Not Per Product

            If you had a handling fee to the product then the cart will charge that fee times the number of products that are order. Change this to allow for a 1-time handling fee. example: someone purchases 1 product with a $20 handling fee they are charged the $20. If they purchase 5 products with the $20 handling fee they are still only charged the $20 (not 5 x $20). This would be a handling fee per order and not per item.

            • do not show shipping amount until after address information is entered in checkout

              It's turned some customers off when they see some form of shipping charge before they even enter their address information. Usually it's not close or correct until this ship to info is entered in and the page refreshes. I think having the shipping show in the upper part of the page may create more cart abondonment. In place of this, show, enter address information,then have the page refresh with the correct amount.

              • auto fill fedex

                Programs as mundane as ZendCart and QuickBooks offer auto fill of FedEx and USPS online forms to create bar code labels in a reasonable amount. Since 1 cart is written in PHP you could probably lift the free code from ZendCart and use it as is for $5.
                I am within 500 customers of going to $300 per month at which point I will be gone!

                  • Add UK Postal Services to Shipment Tracking Information

                    Being based in the UK it would be useful to have shipping services such as Royal Mail added to the Shipment Tracking Info drop down list so that we can send an automated dispatch email to our UK customers. At present, all the shipping services listed are International - e,g USPS, Canada Post etc.

                    • Freight options based on products not orders: we have items that go UPS others FedEx

                      Now customer chooses freight options for order - we have set up shipping options for the cart. They tend to choose lowest option. We have some frozen items that require overnight shipping and they haven't paid for those items. I have called support and they say cart can not handle multiple shipping at this point.

                        • A way to "box break" a product for shipping.

                          I have a product that is 14 pounds and always comes in one box. If someone buys 10, it sees it as ONE BIG 140 pound box. This KILLS me in shipping, as they have to go in separate boxes. I need a way so I can set the product as "box break" or something. That way, if someone gets 5, they get charged in "real time shipping" for 5, 14 lb. boxes, and NOT one 70 lb. box. Get it?

                              The shipment notification email now includes the service/carrier such as UPS, the tracking number and shipped date. This shows to the customer for each individual product. In addition there are links which will take the customer directly to the carrier’s site with their tracking number populated.

                              Showing the shipping address in the notification is also a great idea. We are looking into adding that too.

                            • Add weight ranges with different shipping costs per range.

                              For example. 0 to 1 lb. Shipping cost is $0.17 per ounce.
                              1-2 lbs. Shipping cost is $0.25 per ounce
                              2-5 lbs. Shipping cost is $0.35 per ounce etc...
                              With a maximum shipping cost at which point no additional shipping will be added.

                              • Shipping table by country and region

                                The "International" shipping option only separates one country from the rest of the world, but most postal services work by regions. I need to be able to separate my shipping into Australia-wide, Asia-Pacific region and Worldwide, but there is no place to put the region.

                                It's easy to find the region from the country and I'd even settle for predefined regions (like Asia-Pacific), so no problem there.

                                Alternatively, I could define shipping tiers and add a list of countries into each tier. With this method, it will be great to have a value of "all other countries" to save a…

                                • Fix Addressing to match USPS rules

                                  The USPS Addressing protocol looks for a two-character state abbreviation, so its optical systems can read city, state, and zip+4 all on one line. It would be nice for 1shoppingcart to translate customers' states into the standard 2-character format for printing shipping labels. By adhering to USPS rules the mail might get processed faster than if it's in an exception queue.

                                  • had different levels for shipping

                                    As a Canadian seller, I would love to be able to charge one price for buyers located in USA, one price for Buyers located in Europe, etc. Right now when an international buyer buys a DVD they see the drop-down options for USA and other countries prices. I just want them to see their own.

                                    • Allow different tax rates by PRODUCT, not location

                                      I understand that tax rates can be set by country or state/province. However in Canada, tax rates may differ by PRODUCT e.g. books are taxed at 5% HST, while other products are taxed at 13% HST. Hope you can add this feature soon - surely I'm not the only one who has this problem!

                                      • Shipping idea for perishable products

                                        I am the owner of a cheese business, and it is extremely complicated getting some of my customers to understand they cannot ship UPS Ground. We can ship UPS ground to select areas which take 3 days or less, but everyone else needs to select 3 day select, 2 day air, or faster. I need a way that the shopping cart will collect their ship to address and offer the shipping methods based upon it. Say someone from California orders (we cannot ship ground, because it takes 5 days). The shopping cart would collect the data and automatically offer 3…

                                        • Ship to country based on product.

                                          Being able to set up ship to country based on product would benefit all venders. Example: Digital downloads can be set up to be sold to any country, in the current system, if a country is listed in the DO NOT ship to list, the system will not allow even a digital product to be purchased. The system can be updated to not restrict the billing information but the shipping information.
