  1. eVoucher or gift card functionality

    We had several requests for gift card functionality in the past so I would like to know your opinion. I expect the scenario behind the idea is as follows (please correct me if I am wrong)

    1) Store manager configures gift card with specific code and price
    2) Gift cards can be bough as standard products
    3) After paying for the order the owner of the card can use its code during the checkout process to decrease the order total price according to the card price

    If you feel it is important for your business, please support this idea. Any…

  3. Use current currency to perform calculations in Ecommerce Module

    At the moment we have faced issues in rounding because Kentico uses the sites Main currency in all its calculations. This should be changed so that the calculations are done using the current currency and then converted to the Main Currency to store those values.

    This issue has cropped up in an instance which uses 3 currencies and has seperate prices. As an example, we take the EUR price of 169 and an exchange rate to GBP of 1.2 we end up with 140.8333 in the main currency. When this 140.8333 is used in calculations it creates a rounding error…

  4. Make it possible to use multiple coupons in one order (by default)

    By default, only one coupon (or any other type of discount for that matter) can be applied to an order.
    It would be nice to have the ability to let your customers use multiple coupons in one order, without having to customize the default Kentico functionality.
    Besides, it is very common to be able to use multiple coupons on the same order in webshops.

  5. Independent between delivery and payment method.

    I would appreciate more independent (less strict dependency in settings) between delivery and payment method. To set up fees for payments, fees for delivery methods, fees for combing delivery/payment methods

    Hi Vilem,

    we’ve removed a dependency between shipping and payment methods for Kentico 10 completely.

    When it comes to the additional fees based on selected payment, shipping or their combination, this is possible via simple customization. Feel free to contact our support team for more details.

    Anyway, we still need you! Continue sending your ideas to us, after all nobody knows what is needed more than the users.

    Regards,
    Petr Vozak

  6. Use Decimal instead of Double for all financial calculations

    Kentico ecommerce unfortunately suffers from rounding errors at times. The reason for this is because the Double type has been used rather than Decimal.

    All financial calculations (e.g. calculating the total basket cost) should be done using the Decimal type - it's what it was created for because Double's simply don't offer enough precision.

    See these links:

    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1165761/decimal-vs-double-which-one-should-i-use-and-when

    Please stop using Double, and starting use Decimal instead.

  7. "Buy X, get Y" and "Buy 1, get 1" discounts

    In Kentico 8 we are comming with new rule-based discounts: http://devnet.kentico.com/articles/sell-more-with-highly-flexible-discounts-and-promotions, however Buy X, get Y discounts were not delivered as a part of this improvement.

    In other words, the following scenarios are still not supported:
    Buy product X, get product Y
    Buy 3 units of product X, get 1 unit of product Y
    Buy 2 units of product X, get 1 unit of product X
    Buy any of (A, B, C), get D
    Buy any 4 products from category X, get the cheapest for free
    etc.

    What scenarios regarding the buy x, get y are the most important…

  8. Support for SKU size/colour etc options

    Currently the Ecommerce module 'product options' do not work for clothing (and other retail) ecommerce sites that require size/colour type options (or other combinations) with a SKU and stock for each and size/colour combination.

  9. More discount options

    For example volume discounts that can be allocated to multiple products (think mix and match volume discount). Also, a discount that applies to one product when another product is purchased.

  10. additional shipping charge

    a per product option to allow an additional shipping charge. This would be for products that are large or require special handling.

  11. Authorise and Capture Payment

    For the ecommerce checkout process it would be nice to allow configuration of the store to initially allow an order payment to be authorised, but not captured.

    A cms admin can then capture the payment once goods are shipped. Most ecommerce shopping carts seem to support this (see www.aspdotnetstorefront.com as an example)

    Also google checkout integration would be a nice to have.

  12. Ecommerce product options

    One shortcoming for the current product options configuration is that you cannot select the product options which need to be available per product. This makes the administration of option categories a nightmare. For example, when i want to add the option category 'Color' to a bike product, i need to create a new category for each color avaiability for each bike.

    Bike 1: available in red, green and orange
    Bike 2: available in red and orange

    I have to create separate categories for this. It would help very much to be able to select the product options which need to…

  13. Auto Apply Discount Cupon

    as i work with ecommerce module i found that in some case it would be better for me to have ability to apply discount cupon automatically in shopping cart and warn buyer about discount in shopping cart section.

    More eplanation:
    we can supply manager with this option:

      *Apply Cupon and warn Customer
    

    if this ption checked then cupon automatically applies to all products that customer add to his basket.in this case customer don't enter the code manually

  14. Shipping Per Item

    For some situations, some items do NOT need to be shipped such as digital downloads, services, etc. It confuses people when shipping is mentioned when something like a service is purchased. It would be nice if each item could be marked as "Shippable" and if the cart contains only NON shippable items, then the shipping options could be ignored.

  15. Ability accept donations

    Currently, to accept donations, the recomendation is to use a bizForm and an api hook. It would be much better if this could become a feature. A donation is basically a product where the "purchaser" sets the price.

  16. Better support for E-commerce with multiple sites in one installation

    Right now the docs recommend that if you are running E-commerce you should not mix multiple sites in the same installation. I would really like to see the E-commerce pages handle multiple sites in the same installation better. I.E. customers only showing up correctly per site, and the product page not having a site dropdown that shows all the sites available.

  17. Discount coupons should have a usage limit

    There have been many improvements to the discount coupons, but one glaring omission is not being able to set a 'maximum uses' limit on each coupon.

    Currently, a coupon can be used unlimited times before it expires, which is rarely the ideal scenario for an online retainer.

  18. Add the possibility to do tax calculation from price including tax

    Most customers want to sell using a "nice price", like 199 Euro's.

    Right now you could have difficulties reaching that nice price from calculating it from the price excluding tax.

    For instance the following is not possible:
    Retail price : 415 Euro
    Price excluding tax : 342,98 Euro

    342,98 * 1,21 = 415,0058
    Which means : 415,01 Euro

    You can't get to exaclty 415 Euro:
    342,97 * 1,21 = 414,9937
    Which means : 414,99 Euro

    Also when you want to sell something for 415 Euro's on your french and Belgium site, you'll have a problem, because they apply different taxes.

  19. Customizable, Text Product Options

    Currently product options are selected from a pre-selected list. For example a "color" option, the shopper can pick blue, green, or white. However there are many cases when a shopper would need to write-in an option into a textbox. So for example a product like a Mug could have an "engraving" option where the user would type in the text they would like on the mug. Or a gift card might have a "note" option. Some products might have more than one of these text options.

  20. Taxable shipping

    There are many states (and countries) that require tax calculations to include the shipping cost. This can be achieved with some custom coding, but it would be nice if the feature was included as an option for each area.
