  1. Secure Ordering Processing via API - Allows Completely Custom and Client-hosted Order Forms

    Improving on the existing API by allowing API calls to process orders securely would open up a lot of possibilities for merchants. Here are a few advantages that I can think of:

    - Custom order forms/interfaces can be created and controlled by merchant's developers, in unique and creative ways that more suit a client's specific sales process needs.

    - Because the order form could be developed in the client's web application language of choice (PHP, Rails, etc), order processing can be more easily integrated directly with other applications that might be dependent on billing such as content management systems, forums,…

    • 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…

      • Assign Upsell Offers/Funnels to Advanced Bundle Products

        It would be awesome if you gave us the option of assigning Upsell Offers/Funnels to Advanced Bundle products instead of only single products.

          We had anticipated this desire when we designed Upsell Express, however, we also have some planned changes to Bundle Offers as well.

          The changes that are slated for Bundle Offers will ultimately allow you to use a bundle in Upsell Express.

        • Create secondary affiliate program so we can assign a product to one affiliate program & not another

          I want to be able to create a 2nd affiliate program for a product (membership site) that I open up to only certain people and don't want existing affiliates currently promoting other products to promote the membership site (at least not yet) . Right now, 1SC won't let us create a second affiliate program . INstead, if we make a product eligible for affiliate status, all affiliates can promote it. We can't control which affiliates have access to which products

          • Allow me to LIMIT the quantity of each item that each user can purchase.

            I am a distributor that sells things on behalf of my customers. My customers want me to be able to place limits on how many items each person can buy. Think of it like a Ticketmaster environment where each person may only purchase UP TO 8 tickets (and no more than that), but the event has a total of 10,000 tickets to sell.

            Note that it would be great to be able to place the limit per user, but even placing the limit per transaction would be better.

            The limit needs to also be per-product. So, using my example, if…

            • Add Lifetime Customer Value to Ad Tracker

              “Lifetime Customer Value” (LCV) is the most important metric in direct marketing.

              It is absolutely critical to know how much, on average (including upsells and recurring orders), a customer spends with you over time, for each traffic source.

              Knowing this allows the marketer to accurately calculate how much money to spend on adverting.

              I suggest adding a field to the Ad Trackers called “LCV.” This field would display the average amount of money each customer spends from that traffic source. This is simply the sum of orders, upsells, and recurring revenue from that source, divided by the number of customer…

              • shipping status indicator on the Current Orders page

                It would be very helpful to users and reduce the load on your servers to put either the shipping tracking number or just an X on the Current Orders display page to indicate if the order had been shipped.

                • Automate starting a new autoresponder series when a series is complete

                  Automate a new autoresponder series to start when a sequence ends. Someone fails to purchase a product by the end of a sequence automatically start the next product sequence as the next step.

                  • Can we attach documents?

                    Sometimes my promotions require me to attach an enrollment form or flyer. Why can't we attach a document to emails? Aweber and Infusion allow us to do that.

                    • Sort Products by Price

                      Currently there's not option I'm aware of to sort my list of available products by price. The option to list products in some order (other than Alpha) would be a HUGE benefit for store owners IMO. Hope you guys consider this option.

                      • 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…

                        • **Import Shipping Tracking Numbers into order records after shipment is sent!!!

                          Like many clients we use a fulfillment house to ship orders and handle customer service. Currently there is no method to import shipping tracking numbers once an order is shipped by our fulfillment house; it has to been done manually which is not a viable option. A simple import would be a huge time saver and allow for customer service to use 1ShoppingCart interface as a central database. I believe this would be a very attractive feature and help attract new business segments to 1ShoppingCart as it could be used in customer service settings.

                            When we do not want to use second level commission, the affiliates that manage to refer a new affiliate member still get email notification which mention "You will receive commissions from their referrals." This is confusing to some people, please make the option to disable this email available. Thank you.

                            • API for Affiliate area.

                              Allow us to be able to grab the information from our own affilate areas so we can put it in our own membership sites. AS currently if a person has a membership site then their members need to have two username and passwords. One for the membership site and one for the affiliate site. Also it would allow for us to use the links, banners, emails etc more effectively for our own affiliates.

                              • 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.

                                    • Custom Signatures - option to attach different signatures to different AR

                                      I can create multiple approved "custom signatures", but what's the point as only the default attaches to all outgoing messages?
                                      I should be able to attach selected "custom signatures" to selected messages.

                                      • Server Post Back on Upsell Pages

                                        As you know a high percentage of customers never make it to the thank you page when you enable 1 click upsells.

                                        If there was more flexibility to use PHP on the upsell page, or send post variables to a URL on a successful conversion, it would make 1 Shopping Cart much more integration friendly and be better for all for all of us trying to integrate more advanced software.

                                        • Have the ability for Autoresponders to start on a given day of the week eg Monday rather than n days.

                                          Have the ability for Autoresponders to start on a given day of the week e.g. Monday rather than n days after registering.

                                          This way I can have something that goes out on the same day every week by using +7 days after the initial one, I want to send a motivational email out every Monday to help kick start the week.
