COD and a payment gateway we can choose

Status: New Idea
by NSINewZealand 14 hours ago - last edited 9 hours ago by Community Manager

This is not a new subject but I am going over old ground as the lack of response by Weebly on this is not acceptable. We want a COD and an option to use our own payment gateways. I put this up a year ago with no answer from Weebly explaining why this cannot be implemented, if you can set up what you currently do you can set this up.

One thing I have seen is this idea comes up regulary and all Weebly does is marks it as a duplicate, yes it might be duplicated but the reason why it keeps on coming up is that it is a MUST for an Ecommerce site. Other website builders allow it why not Weebly?

 

Please answer these questions below Weebly:

 

Why do we not have a COD option?

Why do we not have an option to use our own payment gateway?

Blank Theme

Status: Alternative Suggestion Provided
by LadyJuse yesterday - last edited 9 hours ago by Community Manager

I was thinking that it might be a good idea if Weebly offered a blank theme or at least a way for users to easily make their own custom themes. Using my own HTML files, I feel like I have been barred from using certain features...

Status: Alternative Suggestion Provided

The easiest way to develop a theme is to take one of ours and export it. It's a simple way to have something which is structurally compatible with Weebly.

Hi, I am a food blogger-new to Weebly, and would like to be able to use an app or plug-in to create and share recipes with my readers. It would be great to be able to use the same format with each recipe: for example a photo of the finished product, a title of the recipe, how long it takes to make, how many it serves, ingredients and directions. I would also like my readers to be able to download, print, email and share my recipes to social media. Is this possible on Weebly? You could create a Weebly theme specific to food bloggers with this feature! Thank you.  

Automated Follow Up

Status: New Idea
by auntbe Thursday - last edited Thursday by Community Manager

I would like a way to create an automated follow up letter that is delivered 3 weeks after an online purchase. This would check on how the customer is enjoying their urchase, ask for a review and give them a link to do so and also to make other product recommendations based on their purchases.

The Image Editor App MUST show pixel dimensions!

Status: New Idea
by happymedium27 a week ago - last edited a week ago by Community Manager

I know I used to be able to see x/y pixel dimensions when resizing an uploaded image. Now I can't. This is a critical feature for insuring consistently sized graphics across the site. One should not be expected to eyeball the pixel width and height of an image. It was here before - can't you bring it back?

File Upload as Product Option

Status: New Idea
by jgb Wednesday - last edited Wednesday by Community Manager

Include a File Upload as an option on the product page.  Uploaded file would then be attached to the product through checkout. 

This would be a great tool for personalizing items with photos, logos, or user supplied art and allowing the shopper to upload files during the transaction.  Woudl also be useful for CAD/3D/CNC purposes with non-graphic files.

Paypal has the customers details, so for customers paying with paypal, they should be able to skip the form filling and just pay with Paypal.

Being able to purchase something quickly is a must have feature and if it's not going to be adressed it makes me weary of sticking with weebly in the future.

The title says it all. I submitted this a year ago, still no movement.

 

What the heck? No individual gets turned off by a "Buisness Name" line in the checkout... but every Buisness On Earth treats me like I don't actually do B2B sales!

 

Cmon Weebly! I love you! You are the ones who taught me how easy it is to drop that line into the checkout shipping address and billing address! Just make it a priority please!

bulk Price editing

Status: New Idea
by UniqueLED 3 weeks ago - last edited 2 weeks ago by Community Manager

Please Please enable something where we can bulk price change. I have over 400 items and most of them have many options. It is a nightmare to change prices. 

At times I may edit and update my website contents and browse them repeatedly to ensure they look okay. It would be helpful if my own visits are not included in the website statistics.

Standardized Buttons

Status: New Idea
by Rx 3 weeks ago - last edited 3 weeks ago by Community Manager

The ability to standardize button sizes would be great. Right now, button length is determinted by the # of letters in the button's text. This does not always look the best from an aesthetic point of view. I'd like a cleaner presentation with the ability to customize my button lengths for uniformity despite letter or word count.

Better Text Color all over Weebly

Status: New Idea
by pc-mac Friday - last edited Friday

Get rid of the grey text!  On the Weebly interface/dash board, within weebly, advertising boxes -- Grey is hard to read -- I have no idea why it is in style right now.  

 

Don't use text because it looks good -- use text that is easy to read.  On the this forum -- the text is thin and hard to read.  

 

Looking stylish and "in" is nice -- but having text that is easy to read is essential.  The main purpose of websites is to convey information -- and to do that you must be able to comfortably read the text.

 

I've tried to go back to the old Weebly interface, but becaue it doesnt' strain my eyes to read it.  Not a fan of the "new" dashboard at all.

Better Blog Features + Social Sharing

Status: New Idea
by Trice91 Thursday - last edited Thursday by Community Manager

I love Weebly but the blog sections are still stuck in the dark. The UI of the blog is all themes just aren't modern or really nice to look at. For starters, I REALLY think an update is past due in this area. I'd love to see options allowing us to customize the blog portion and posts to maybe look similiar to this and more (see photo)

Screen Shot 2017-04-20 at 1.11.31 PM.png

 

 Instead of just having the two social share buttons (which we can't easily customize) to fit our website aesthetics). Pinterest should definitely be added as a share option because it is 2017. 

 

 

Allow Editing in the Checkout Cart

Status: New Idea
by Creature 3 weeks ago - last edited 2 weeks ago

I have multiple issues with the Weebly Checkout cart. 

1. the visual icons used are not industry standards

     -small blue card next to the paypal icon, does not communicate that I take all major credit cards       clearly, I would love to be able to create a work around my self by being able to insert a small banner within the cart that would contain images of my accepted payments

2. my cart does not work AT ALL on a phone at the moment. The bug with the cart on phones has been reported for over 6 months

  - there is no workaround for this per se, but I would like to be able to add additional info text to the check out screen that says something to the effect of "if you have any experiences checking out, please contact me directly and I can assist you" . There is currently no way to add anything to customize the checkout cart system. 

 

Enabling the ability to customize the cart is greatly needed.

 

Media Library

Hi there!

Thanks for having such an easy-to-use CMS! 

 

I wish, once you've uploaded a photo, that you could access it on weebly again through a sort of image library of our uploaded photos. There are times, where even though I have previously uploaded a photo, if I want to reuse it elsewhere on the same site, I have to upload it again. Or if I want to switch back to an old photo, it's not available to me through Weebly, I must upload it again. 

 

Thanks!

Coupon user view

In the Coupons section of my store settings, it would be cool if you could click a coupon and get a list of the related orders that used it.

Editing pages when in Mobile view

Status: Duplicate
by DarrelG a month ago - last edited a month ago by Community Manager

Suggestion: Make it possible to edit site pages seen in the mobile view, without, at the same time, changing the site pages in the web view.

One of the Weebly “Settings” – “Mobile” for a website is to check or uncheck “Display the mobile-optimized version of this website when someone visits from a mobile device.” When this choice is checked (enabled) in the Settings, and the website is viewed by a user, in the bottom footer area is shown: Version: Mobile Web.   On a mobile device, the Mobile Version is shown, but the Web version can be chosen instead by the user. When Mobile choice in Settings is not checked (not enabled), the viewer on a mobile device will only see the Web version.

When making edits to a website page, an icon in the upper right corner, left of “PUBLISH,” can be clicked on to switch from the Web view to the Mobile view. In the Mobile view, a different Theme can be chosen to be more suitable for a mobile device.

However, I have found that editing changes made while in the Mobile view also change the Web view. I believe such editing changes should be independent between views – a change made in the Mobile view should not change the page in the Web view.

TEXT OVERLAY OVER IMAGES THAT STAYS VISIBLE

Status: New Idea
by JayL 3 weeks ago - last edited 3 weeks ago by Community Manager

Users need the ability to place text freely overtop of photos- and the ability to have the text "light up" when you cursor hovers over the image- BUT THE TEXT STILL STAYS VISIBLE WHEN YOU MOVE THE CURSOR AWAY FROM THE IMAGE. As it is now, you can have text appear as you hover over an image- but when you move the cursor away- the text totally disappears. SUPPOSE WE WANT THE TEXT TO STAY VISIBLE ON THE IMAGE? You shouldn't have to go through so much labor creating your own text image to place on top of photos . As it is now,you have to create the text as a separate image and then bring it in to Weebly.

 

 

Multiple passwords

Status: Alternative Suggestion Provided
by webbuilder11 2 weeks ago - last edited 2 weeks ago by Community Manager

I need to be able to use multiple different passwords on my website to protect pages.  Right now only one password can be used for the entire site.  

 

The reason why, is if I want one group of people to access some content and other groups to access different content.  Right now I would have to give everyone the same password and they would be able to access pages I do not want them to see. 

Status: Alternative Suggestion Provided

You can use our Membership features to have different passwords for different pages, @webbuilder11:

REPLACING photos in a gallery

Status: New Idea
by emilyhopper a month ago - last edited a month ago by Community Manager

Please give us the option to simply replace images in a gallery while maintaining the current captions & links. 

 

Currently, we have to add new photos, which are then placed at the bottom of the gallery & re-add the link and caption and move it back to where we want it to be. 

Having the option to replace the image in the gallery would be much easier.
