I would like for my staff to have access to the orders on my store without having them go through the "edit my Site" Interface. There's no telling what can accidently/purposely be changed giving that much access to the whole functioning site just to retrive orders for fulfillment.

I don't know if this is possible already (can't seem to find anything on it) but I'd love to be able to save a small cache of images to my site - images that I use over and over. I know that you can favorite stock/paid images, however I'd like to be able to upload a few images that I use for a recurring blog theme so that I can just click to add rather than have to re-upload it every week.
Create a development environment that allows users to try out feature (and features of the higher-level packages) without needing to pay for two website. For example, if I already have a paid account and site, I may want to make a copy of that site and do major changes/upgrades to it before making it "public". I may want to understand and experiement with how the customer account features work. Once I've made the changes and have it all working, I would redirect my URL from the old site to the new site. And the old site would no longer be active.
The development environment could have an obtrusive watermark, disabled transactions, password protected, hidden from search engines, weebly subdomain only, etc.
And this is a great way for customers to learn about more advanced features in the the higher account levels. Once they build in the feature, they will understand it and be more apt to upgrade.
Perhaps Weebly should insert some ‘feature & plugin checker’ in their publishing software to prevent theft of their intellectual property. This could increase their bottom line by increasing revenues.
I am writing this because I love Weebly and I want them to stay in business for the next few decades.
It is very easy to cheat Weebly. For example, even I could remove the Weebly footer from free Weebly sites. I have seen website contractors who basically run ‘Weebly mills’ asking on Upwork to make code to install (and give them codes) video plugin to Weebly headers for $20 (the final price was $25). The same contractors would pay $30 to have a Weebly site built.
I am sure it is not that difficult to have a ‘checking’ algorithm which checks for valid allowed options during publishing stage (same way as it checks if Free Weebly accounts are eligible to have a shopping cart or can they add products or not).
Ponder and act if my suggestion is good for Weebly’s health or not.
I realize that this is largely outside of Weebly's control and delays or blocks are decided by the email provider. However, this is still something management could look at in terms of how the contact form's emails are viewed by major providers.
I set up the form properly, confirmed by support, and emails are still being significantly delayed to my normal gmail account. Not in spam, no in promotions, just delayed. I have tested multiple gmail accounts. I could lose business using Weebly's form. I think something needs to be done. Thanks.

Allowing API access outside of AppCenter apps would be a great help to site developers.
We would like to be able to do some custom processing (in this case of specific forms) on one site which would not be of general relevance, so not suitable for an AppCenter app. Opening up access to the APIs e.g. for a 'private' app, would allow this, but at the moment its seems to be impossible.

I just found out that there is no way to link directly to a PDF document from the drop down menu using the "PRO" level. I think this is a serious flaw. It seems it should be an easy option to offer. All you need is to be able to upload your PDF document to your library and then have the option to link to the PDF, rather than to a website or email address.

I have this problem since I started using weebly.
I am from hungary and in hungarian alphabet we have letters with accents, but unfortunatelly weebly cannot manage them and if I use a word eg. in one of the menu items, it changes the word in the domain and it affects SEO as well as it looks very strange and unprofessional when I use a link.
I recently moved to Weebly's e-commerce platform from elsewhere, and have found myself sorely missing these two simple features. I should hope they are not too difficult to implement, but they would greatly help me.
- Next to each unique variant/SKU, a counter for how many of that variant has sold in total since it was added. As an indie/niche accessory maker, I often restock my items in small batches of 10-20 after they sell out, so this would be a good way to know at a glance which variants are popular.
- On the product page from the customer's perspective, a visible stock bar for the variants, or some other way for customers to be able to tell at a glance how many are available of each option. This way, customers can easily see whether their preferred option is going fast or close to selling out. It's always been very helpful to me as a customer, which is why I would love the ability to implement it in my own store.
speaking of that, it would be insanely helpful if customers could see that an item/variant had sold out before they literally have to try and add it to their cart. like, at the very least, when you go to select the option in a dropdown or whatever, have it be greyed out and with a "sold out" caption next to it. it seems ridiculous that this feature isn't already available.
i do understand that when people upload items with many different options (size AND colour for e.g.) the last two features could look a little clumsy, but at least giving us the option of enabling them would be a huge help to me.

Upload file to site without it being visible
by Anonymous a moment ago
I'd like the ability to upload a file to our site without having to post it to the site. I've found a workaround, but it seems to me, we should have the ability to have a media storage facility that allows us to post and remove files as needed.
