I recently noticed how slow my website was loading, just before I was about to share it with a potential business investor and decided to perform a website speed test (https://tools.pingdom.com). The over all rating it received was a C. Only faster than about 28% of all websites out there. So my website is SLOWER than 72% of all websites. WTH!
Here are some of the issues it pointed out as reason for it being slow, apparently the worst ones:
Parallelize downloads across hostnames (not utilizing) Grade: 0/F
Leverage browser caching (bunch of things can be improved) Grade: 39/F
Weebly, Please improve the poor load performance of our websites due to site editor issues. Again, I noticed how slow it was loading, which prompted me to find out what the hell the problem was and run a load test on my site. I have had multiple issues with how slow my website loads after switching to weebly and I have reported it before, with zero customer service or care from Weebly. Please update what can be updated to improve the load time.

It would be great if we can customize our checkout fields to the way we want just like the contact forms and survey form elements. For instance, there are some fields that come by default such as Region and Zip which are pretty lame and unwanted for me, and so I would like to remove them from letting the user enter such information as they won't benefit me at all. Nevertheless, we should have the ability to also insert as many fields as we like in case there are some mandatory fields not placed in the default checkout. Furthermore, it would also be nice if we can have a tick box below the fields that states the user to save his/her credentials locally on their PC the next time they come to checkout so that they won't need to retype everything again. It would surely bring better sales for my business for minimizing and reducing the hassles. Last but not least, it would be super great if we can specify different rates for different shipping method services, ex: the user selects/picks from a drop-down "Express Shipping / Standard Shipping / Royal Shipping / Same-Day Shipping / International Shipping, and so on..." We can define these names to our own liking as well as set different charge fees for each. Well, nough said. If I had missed anything, then don't hesitate to comment below. All feedback is much appreciated.
I operate an online shop and have been quite pleased with the ease of use and ability to edit quickly when I'm busy.
Well, my customers have asked many times if they can look at past orders, see the tracking info, set up subcription payment plan etc. This would be a wonderful feature for those of us with online shops or business.
I would love to be able to have my customers post reviews for each of my products. But, only if they have purchased the product It would have a star option and a place to enter a comment. Then a tag beside it that says, "Verified Purchase". Sorta like Amazon is doing. Then the star rating could then be shared along with the product to social media if the product is shared. This would make me so happy!

It would be great, if weebly had apps that were user friendly for Australians that use this program.
It is easy to use, but because I am not in the UK, US or Canada. I can not print out shipping labels.
Getting with the times, and allowing us to access Afterpay, which is becoming huge here in Australia, or even a lay a way (we call it layby app) would be great to have.
I have just started my business on this site, and I am losing sales, as most of my customer base love my products, and used to buy from me, well before my website, yet even though they are having a look, because there is no layby feature or afterpay, my customer base is really non existent, at the moment.
If these features are not implented soon, as i see that other australians have asked for this as far back as 2014 and still you cant seem to get with the times. I might have to go to a website that caters for these two functions. I like weebly overall except it lacking in payment options.

PLEASE allow us to use the incredible amount of 3rd party abandoned cart apps that almost every other web service lets their customers use!!!!!! These apps are MUCH less expensive than having to pay you all almost $600 for a bunch of stuff we don't need just to get an abandoned cart app.

It would be nice to be able to take a certain amount off of shipping costs, but also only be able to work if only certain products are in the cart. Weebly really needs to have more adavaced options in general with the online stores, with shipping, orders, coupons, everything.
I print off an invoice to pack with each order. The Weebly invoice is, frankly, embarrassing. It doesn't even print my company name and I have no way to add any graphic header. Everything on the invoice is double spaced so it wastes tons of paper. If the customer orders more than 3 items the customer name box prints on a second page. It is VERY easy to get these separated if you print multiple invoices.....something we all want to do every day! What we get now is basically a print screen and it's hideous.
The invoice needs to be completely redesigned. It needs:
- company name and logo options
- the customer name and address at the top
- more efficient use of space, eliminating much of the double spacing
Maybe there's something better that I haven't found on the site yet. If so, please let me know!

This topic has been discussed but it was archived so I'm beginning a new post as I've still been experiencing issues.
Can there be an option to remove and/or edit the heading and fields of the "Personal Information" (or "Shipping Information") section of the checkout screen?
For websites dealing with only digital goods this is a very confusing section for customers. From my Page Views history and recent feedback I can see there are instances of people beginning the checkout process but not following through because they're confused as to why they're being prompted to fill out all this information.
If this cannot be done, at the very least, can the heading be renamed to "Personal Information (Optional)".
I'd like to remain with Weebly but this issue is directly impacting the ability of digital goods sites to conduct business. This seems like a major flaw rather than a recommendation requiring up-votes. Can anything be done about this?

It would be great to be able to add our logo to the confirmation emails that are generated from the webstore. Seems odd that we have a beautiful website and when the customer purchases something they get a VERY boring order and download confirmation.

It would be beneficial to have a "Sold Out" sticker appear on the product image in the store when an item has sold out. Customers currently have to click on the product to see if the item is available or sold out. My products are each unique and I can only sell one item (no duplicates available). It is inconvenient for my customers to have to click on each item to see if it is still available and I am currently having to change the titles of the items to include the words "sold out" so that viewing is easier.

We do a lot of business with school districts and churches, which are all tax exempt. There needs to be a feature to check a box and input tax exempt ID in order to remove taxes from checkout. I am losing sales because customers are reluctant to go through the process of contacting us to refund the taxes. This is affecting our business and needs to be resolved as soon as possible.
We would like to have the option to have a coupon that allows for a discount of a certain percentage off only ONE item if the customer orders multiple things. Currently, we can only set it for a percentage off the entire order, or a percentage off an entire category, which also discounts multiple items. Often times, we end up giving a much bigger discount than we wanted in this situation.
For example, we'd like to offer 30% off the highest price item in the cart. Other online retailers offer this and we would like to as well.
