  • Miva Merchant 5.5 Dream Features

    If you could have any feature built right into Miva Merchant 5 what would it be? How would you improve on any current features in Miva Merchant 5? What modules would you like to see developed for Miva Merchant 5?

    (please make this an open discussion and not shoot any ideas down)

    Tell Miva what features you want to see in Miva Merchant 5 at the "Miva Merchant 5 Dream Features" thread!

    Very true and not many people realize that.

    My features:
    100% control over layout/functionality
    No proprietary languages -- PHP/mysql is my request
    Better developer documentation
    Better help files
    AJAX admin interface
    One/Two screen checkout process
    Extended customer information - memorize multiple addresses, credit info like big sites do

    The good news is that if you asked me what features I wanted before moving to Miva 5, my list would be a lot longer!

            • Catgory Import

              A better category import wich has more than the very basics. Title image import would be nice.

              • From within the Miva Admin, the ability to search on page templates. For example, I often want to find a particular tag in one of the pages. Currently, I have to copy the page template to my text editor and do a search from there.

                This leads me to my next request. The ability to use your own text editor to modify page templates. If there was a way I could push a button which downloads and opens my preferred text editor, I could then modify the changes and save them back automatically. That would be awsome.

                • Dynamic attributes (drop down attribute options based on previous selections). I'm surprised that after almost 8 years, this has never been developed.

                  • - Shipping method logic that recognizes an APO/military address and offers only valid options or a special flat fee conditionally.
                    - Better control over the shipping options that are presented -- both over what appears based on definable address conditions (ie: AK, HI, PR, APO), and how they are named and the order they are presented in the menu.

                    - Better multiple product images/views, provided as a token or page component you can choose to use or customize.

                    - Breadcrumb trail available as a token we can choose to include in page code.

                    - Streamline the checkout process: combine the Create Account and Shipping/Billing Address pages.
                    - Combine selecting the "pay with" method and inputting the card info like the rest of the world does -- or at least provide an optional page that offers this.
                    - Better foreign address behavior in checkout: recognize that a non-us country may not have State or Province data. Don't lose the country selection in error conditions that return you to the address screen.

                      • We should have a small window open for 2-3 seconds when we update or add anything in the admin so that it will not eat the time to see the preview each and everytime on the browser.

                        • A more realistic take on this idea, is to add a "Preview" button on the edit product and edit category screens that would allow you to see your changes before you press update.

                          • Address verification (zip, town and state matching)

                            I'd also like Address Verification that will check for customer errors/typos in town, state and zip entries (at minimum) during checkout. Yahoo Merchant Solutions offers this feature. Of course UPS and FedEx do this too, and the error will be caught at the tail end, but for a busy online store, dealing with bad addresses is a major nuisance, and in some cases, a deal-breaker for Miva.

                            • There is only one feature that i would love to see built into MIVA

                              1. Sub Categories in more than 1 parent category. You can put multiple products into more than 1 category would love to be able to do the same with categories.:D:D
