  1. Structure product options like Ebay, Amazon and Google

    Amazon, Google, Ebay all structure Product Options differently than CSC. Their definitions & data structure are all the same (or very similar). CSC does it differently

    I suggest that CSC should conform their product structure on Product Options / Option Combinations like these big guys. It would greatly reduce the complexity of getting product-option data in/out of CSC.
    Product data per option such as unique SKU codes, inventory levels, pricing, discount structures, bar codes, etc..

    Please also see this discussion:

    Thanks in advance

  2. API : Enable access to products variants/combinations stock value

    This is a big lack in cs-cart current API.
    We don't have access to products combination stock quantity through the API. We cannot update these quantities.
    Please do something urgently ...

  3. Custom fields for products, options, email, accounts

    Custom fields could make CS-Cart much more versatile. We would be able to add any custom field to products or product options. For example a barcode field, or any field that is specific to our requirements. The field could be backend only or also for front end. Or we could easily add a new field to outgoing emails, or require our customers to fill in a field that we want to have. For example: VAT number or company registration number. The possibilities are endless.
    Optimally there would be several types of custom fields: single text line, multiple text line, radio…

  4. Optimize the structure of product options and variants.

    Currently you create from scratch new set of options and variants for each products (or copy from Global options and edit them). But actually the majority of products will have same options with limited quantity of variants. E.g. size (S,M,L,XL ...) and colors (with named or RGB values). Better idea is to assign global options and variants without copying them or assigning as a link. This will add a flexibility for mastering addons, reduce dramatically the huge quantity of identical swatches (icons) for the same variants, reduce the size of mysql tables, and as the result improve the performance of…

  6. Folders for banners

    I have accumulated many banners and would like to organize them into groups. I suggest having the ability to create folders to place and organize banners into.

  7. Add option in admin to run entire site secure and thru https://

    As Google is now moving over to give more emphasis on sites that are entirely secured it is important to give us the option to do this. Without having to make so many changes within the code to implement it.

  8. Easy Editing of content pulled from the Main Content block and re-arrange currently fixed items

    In you wish to change something in the layout of product detail page you can edit the specifically assigned product layout and add various blocks but you are not able to rearrange the content that is pulled in by the MAIN CONTENT block specifically related to where the add to cart button is place or where you want to put the promo text or rearrange where you want the review product link to appear on the product detail page. You simply cannot rearrange those things. I think that should be made possible for the MAIN CONTENT block that pulls product…

  9. using gmaps instead directly google map api

    I suggest to use gmaps instead of google map api as know. It will be more easy to use in js/jquery. More over in store locator why don't put input field for address location and get geocode location when we save data ?

  10. add additional product feature field for larger product description

    In Magento product features are called attributes and in Magento you can add attribute in which you add a field that is similar to the product description and features an wysiwyg or the ability to put in a large additional info and format the html so that you have extra field. In case of the dietary supplement industry this is a must and compliancy issue especially because otherwise it contains duplicate content in the main product description that hurts your google ranking.

  11. Add navigation module Bestsellers (New goods and Sale)

    Hello. Do you think you need as soon as possible to make a revision of the navigation module Bestsellers, in 5000 naschih stores goods under sale every week laid out 500 products, as a person of interest to find his product? It is necessary to make navigation! By filter or by category. Better course categories. (output categories and subcategories which present goods) -to the menu New, Sales and Bestsellers.

  13. search product by title not by irelevant description

    The cs cart is amazing, however is useless without a good search engine for products. Do you agree with this?
    I will give you an example.

    I am searching for term "polen" in my cs cart and I am getting results that shows products irrelevant products that have in description "polen".
    I am getting products for allergies and in description is "polen" to explain that the allergies are caused by "polen".
    The user/customer is loking for "polen" but it gets products for allergies. I can tell you 1000 similar cases but have no time and space.

    PLEASE ADD BY DEFAULT…

  15. new banner type that allows background image as well as html/text overlay

    Currently it is hard to create a banners that have both graphics and text separated but as one single banner. It is possible by adding the custom divs and html via the html/text banner type as a developer, however most end users cannot do this.

    If for example a client wants to have a slider on a homepage of a cart site that contains a large image with text and conversion elements such as buttons, they are limited to creating a single graphic that includes the image and text and then linking the entire graphic. see your own cscart demo…

  17. Product image options when importing products using csv

    Whenever a product csv is imported cs-cart imports all images every time. To reduce server load and extra work it would be great if there were options such as:

    1. Skip images already present.
    2. Compare file size and update images.
    3. Compare file date and update images.
    4. Replace all images.

  19. Product Options Variants - Linked Products

    In the Product Option Variants you are unable to link the variant to a product thus unable to run true tracking of stock levels. To add this should not a lot of work and in the long run easier for all.

    ie. You have a T shirt in 5 colours and 4 sizes in the current mode you can not account for the stock correctly to ensure you do not over sell as you really have 20 products not 1. It is impossible to account for 20 items off 1 stock qty.
