  1. Add Pop-up Discount Option If Cart Is Abandoned

    It would help boost sales if there were an option to create a pop-up(or some other type of form) that would present and add a discount to a potential customer who leaves the shopping cart.

    • Allowed us to collect an optin First name / Email before taken to the shopping cart.

      This is extremely important, especially with sites who have a high cart abondoment rate.

      Also, the first name and email must pre-populate when the person gets to step 2 which would be the final completion of the order.

      No need for more steps!

      2 steps

      Step 1 - First name / Email
      Step 2 - pay and checkout

      • Custom HTML showing shopping cart's running total

        There's should be a code snippet, like the add to cart button, that adds a dynamic link on the page that shows the shopping cart's total balance. It would show a link like this "Shopping Cart: $9.95" and when clicked it would take you to the checkout screen.

        • Need proof customer accepted buyer agreement policy

          Credit card Company’s are requiring evidence that a customer check marked the buyer agreements before they purchased the product, but the shoppingcart stores nothing to prove that.

          When I tell me credit card company that they cannot checkout until the box is clicked my credit card company says "great, but I need you to prove to me that they accepted the agreement because you could have turned that on at anytime". Well I know the truth shoppingcart knows the truth, but I cannot prove anything.

          I would like to see a field on the order receipt that acknowledges that the…

          • allow us to customize order pages + pre-populate order form so we can use 1sc with CPA offers

            it would be really helpful if we could customize the order forms/pages so they more match our websites. Ultracart allows you to do this.

            if I just wanted to collect CC info on the order page, I should have the ability to custom code it to work with the cart. Right now we don't have that feature.

            Also allowing us to pre-populate the order pages with the info the user inputs from a form.

            Some of us do CPA offers and you MUST have a form to collect shipping info on 1 page, then ONLY collecting the cc# on the…

            • Remove the "You have chosen Paypal as your payment provider" from the checkout page.

              We use paypal only as the credit card and payment provider. Some people do not order online because they see the "You have Chosen Paypal as your payment provider" section on the checkout page. They conclude that they mistakenly chose paypal as their method of payment or that a paypal account is required and they leave instead of completing their order with a credit card. If there was a way to not have that section show on the checkout page it would be very helpful.

              • Add Multiple Items To Cart at the Same Time with Quantites

                I know about the bundling, but what I am talking about is being able to have multiple products listed, being able to choose how many of each they want, then one form button to push to add everything. So if I was selling socks, I would want my customer to be able to choose how many red, blue and green socks they want to buy, then press one button to add them all to the cart.

                • Remove "Province of China" from Taiwan in drop-down country list

                  In the drop-down list of countries at checkout, Taiwan is listed as a Province of China. We have gotten repeated complaints about that designation as it is a very fraught and controversial political issue, and many Taiwan residents (and our customers) object to that designation. In Taiwan, this is an extremely sensitive issue.

                  The Taiwan resident who has complained about this most vigorously told us that she has never encountered any online transaction page that says "Taiwan, province of China." If you go to any large transaction sites, like Amazon, etc., it only says Taiwan. Also, if you look at…

                  • post values to checkout page

                    We desperately need the ability to send data from our own forms, to the checkout page.

                    For example I want to first collect their name & email in case of cart abandonment, and then send them to the checkout page but NOT require that they enter those things in again.

                    I would also like to pass custom fields such as possibly the traffic source they came from, a username they've chosen, or any number of other things to the checkout page for capture in my cart database.

                    This also ties in very closely to a full blown subid tracking system…

                      I really would like to be able to do test purchases to make sure my selling process is all working properly. This should give us a test mode so that we can go through the entire buying process to see our upsells, thank you pages, autoresponders, etc...

                      • Add custom text to the shipping area of the checkout page.

                        Lots of us have special shipping instructions. It would be great to be able to add these right in the shipping area of the page. Putting the shipping instructions up top gives them undue importance, and at the bottom they are too easy to miss.

                        Actually it would be nice to be able to add custom text to any of the areas on the checkout page.

                        • Make The ‘Required Fields’ & ‘Optional Fields’ on The ‘Billing Information’ section of the Checkout Page Selectable by Me

                          I have had many situations where a purchaser objects to having to give all their personal data when placing an order. Particularly if it is for a digital product

                          I would like to request that you implement a function whereby I can select what fields in the ‘Billing Information’ section on the checkout page will be ‘ Required’ and which fields will be ‘Optional’

                                • Shopping cart recovery

                                  When I have customers that add a product to their cart but do not buy, I want to implement shopping cart recovery to try to win back that client.

                                  This is worth thousands of dollars/month to me.

                                  This could take the form of putting people on a separate list as soon as they click "Check out," then collecting their email, then if they don't buy within X minutes/hours, they get a custom "recovery" email followup series.

                                  I would gladly pay for this service.

                                  • Change address field to read "Cardholder Address"

                                    This will prevent many customer credit card denials due to an address mismatch. Many cusotmers are putting their business address in instead of their cc billing address.

                                    • Automatic zip code lookup

                                      Load the zip codes into a table and once the customer inputs their zip code, the state is automatically selected and pasted. I have a number of Florida customers who inadvertently select Fed. St. of Micronesia as their state when placing an order.

                                      • Handling Cart Abandonment

                                        Need feature when customer clears or tries ot close cart window ( without submitting order) to be able to offer them a reason to go ahead - special discount, optional item, etc.

                                        • show remaining quantity in shopping

                                          The category page AND the product page should show the quantity available.

                                          If you start with 5, then the UI should show "Available = 5". Once you sell 2, then the "Available=3". The user/customer should be able to see this.

                                          This sells product when only a few a left AND avoids a POOR user experience by adding a product to the cart only to find out there are ZERO available at time of check out.
