"New uStorekeeper Features suggestions:"
Posted by Larry on Nov-29-00 at 09:32 AM (EST)
For the uStorekeeper Affiliate Program, would like to see it have the ability to email a copy of each order or the running total or updated total of their commision stats to each Affiliate "as" orders are placed. There are several reasons to do this, but main among them is it allows the Affiliates to see more real time the success of their link, and that gives them incentive to push it of make adjustments to their links or presentation for better exposure.

Would like to see uStorekeeper have the ability to calculate frieght based on zip code zone, or the ability to use the info from those calculators that USPS and the rest have on the net. FEDEX Ground has become a strong competitor with about the lowest prices now. Using zone shipping gives the exact and right amount every time.

Also, the ability to use uStorekeepers ADD to cart function button freely throughout ones site would be a huge improvement, with the added features of returning the shopper to that same page they choose the item, no matter where they are within the site, and the ability to use the checkout and view cart buttons freely right by the ADD button throughout the site.

This allows the customer to shop the site or shop the cart. These are strong function features that would make your cart hard to match! It's good as is, these would really trick it out.

Thanks for all your great work people! It really is becoming a power house cart for medium sized businesses...without spending an arm and leg!

Thanks for the uStorekeeper suggestions.

Just a few comments:

1) We'll think about the email affiliate option, but in the mean time, don't forget right now the affiliates can login whenever they want to view their current statistics.

2) We are looking into adding additional and customizable methods for calculating the shipping rates... including possible interfaces to the USPS.

3) We could have added the ability to add the ADD buttons anywhere on the site, but to do that would:

- require the use of cookies (although most people today seem to allow cookies)
- remove/alter the referring page check that uStorekeeper currently has (for security reasons).

Furthermore, it would kind of go against uStorekeeper's principle of not needing to know any HTML...and adding all items via a Control Panel... but I guess if it was just an advanced option, then that could be Ok. TBD.

2 . "Direct "Add" buttons"

It would be great to have direct access to the shopping cart through HTML tags.
This would allow the webmaster to customize the site and not depend on the templates.
It might also be better for search engine indexing, since the site doesn't have to be dynamic.

Is there any headway being made on improving the shipping functions and calculations, as related in my post on 11-29-00?

It is really becoming a serious drawback, and tends to draw complaints from people. We end up having to hand calculate every order, every time.

Since many people send their orders to us via checks, it ends up being an inconvienece not having the cart calculate by zone. It would certainly add a great and much needed value to the cart.
