Remove items from stock if I manually change order status to "Paid"

I would love if once I changed an order's status from "New" to "Paid" if the system would then remove the items automatically from stock. Sometimes I have people who pay in person, or they've had a glitch completing an order so I've sent them a separate PayPal invoice, or I'm recording a sale I've made elsewhere (like from a Facebook bst). Instead of having to go to each item and manually remove it from the stock, it would be great if changing the order to "paid" removed the items for me.

More "Choices" on listings

I do custom baby carrier work and offer several customs options for customers, however, I have more than 6 for them to choose from carrier size/strap length/waist length/strap color/hood/applique/etc, etc, etc. I would love for this to either be unlimited or at least be able to put in 10 choices. Right now, I use Hyenacart for all of my instock and semi-custom listings, but I must use a different cart altogether to take custom orders. I would love to switch all of my sales to Hyenacart, but without the ability to list more options under the Choice menu, I can't.

Free Shipping

I would like to see a feature added where FREE SHIPPING discount codes can only be used if customers purchase a certain dollar amount and I would also like to see the option where discount codes can only be used on qualifying products (i.e. FREE SHIPPING applies to diapers but not by-the-yard fabric). I am having too many problems with customers violating FREE SHIPPING qualifications since the codes work no matter what.

More Options for Options :)

When adding options for an item it would be nice if we had an option for something OTHER than just the drop-down menu, or if people could select more than one thing from the drop down menu. For example, I sell fleece soakers. The drop down menu works well for the size, insert type, and style where they should only chose one thing, but I also have options for adding PUL, a pocket, ruffles, and elastic. I don't have room to put all of the options I have available and it looks really messy to have an additional four drop down menu's just saying "Yes (add $2.00)" and "No" If I put them all in the same drop down menu people can only select one of those options even though I can make them with ALL of those options. I hope I'm making some sense here! Thanks for everything your have done so far! I am loving all of the updates!!

Allow buyers to pay in CANADIAN or AMERCIAN currency.

I have many Canadian customers and I really wish I could give them the options of paying in Canadian funds. This should be an option that the sellers could add or choose not to have available. On Etsy you can select right away if you are shopping in Cdn funds or American. As it is now, when you go to pay from hyenacart, you can only pay in paypal with US funds. Please make Cdn funds an option....thank you!!

merchant services connection possible?

Would it be possible for sellers to have a connection to a merchant services account, like authorize.net so that customers can checkout using that system, rather than getting confused by paypal? (I've had at least one check out, but not pay because they didn't realize it was possible to use a credit card without having an account).

The ability to have different catergories in the Gallery

The gallery is a great way for me to set up fabric options- I just wish I could separate things into different categories- ie.: Solid Minky, Print Minky, Cotton Prints, etc. Alternately, just increase the number of galleries each store can have and we can use a different gallery for each type.

Definable Congo-wide Thumbnail sizes

Love the new ability to define a pic size within congo listings- would love even more to see this extended to the thumbnail pics that show up on the congo front page- so all vendors within a congo have the same size thumbnails!
  1. Admin comment: This would not be hard to do, but here's the hesitation: say you have a 1000px wide image being resized to a 125px thumbnail. That can be done by the browser, but it takes much longer to download that 1000px image than it would if the image were really 125px wide. That's not a big deal if there are just a few images on the page. But for the main page of a congo, there can be 50-60, even 100 thumbnails. If those are actually all large images being resized by the browser, the page will take *forever* to load. That's why there's never been html resizing of thumbnails for congos. I'm afraid sellers won't realize that is an issue. The way it is now forces sellers to resize their images nice and small for quick downloading by shoppers. Please comment further. Otherwise, I may close this request without fulfilling it.

hide shopper count

Add the option for the seller to hide the text at the bottom of the page that discloses how many shoppers are in the store. True, having many shoppers present might induce someone to buy a one-of-a-kind item before anyone else does, but showing few shoppers just makes the store appear poorly.

A customer referral system

I started a referral program on my shop. As of now I have to manage a spreadsheet on my computer with the person's name, referral code and email and any referrals that come in. Then I have to go create the coupon code that is the referral code, set up the 5% off for anyone using it. Then I have to pay close attention to every order to make sure I don't miss a referral, and cross check that it is actually a NEW customer. Something automated we could opt to use would be awesome!
