Hi @joelfreeborn thank you so much for asking and posting about these specific Ecommerce features as well.
We have undergone quite a few changes internally as our team has been scaling and focusing on a multitude of new features, bug fixes, and performance updates. Our team is reading every post here on the forum and on the Wishlist and you can expect significant updates to our engagement both here and on the Wishlist over the next 30-60 days and beyond.
Thank you so much for sharing each of those platforms, @mikeyevin, that’s a really helpful list. We also have a list of third party Ecommerce integrations available here.
Our Ecommerce offering is still in the early stages, and we have plans for a multitude of the features which you listed above (we’ll be responding within the Wishlist over the next 30-60 days with status updates, what to expect, and workarounds where possible).
Ecommerce website builds nearly always have a custom factor to them (especially as we factor internationalization into it), and we’re working on prioritizing the highest impact features for our customer base to serve as many customers as possible. There are many integrations available out there, though I personally understand the complexities that arise with each specific build and finding the best solution for your clients/businesses to ensure success.
From your feature list above, here are a few workarounds/and plans we have so far:
Partial refunds: Right now these can be issued within Stripe, but not within the interface.
Partial shipment could be something communicated on the order success page, email flows with Zapier, or in the purchase process. I’m doubtful that we’ll build a feature like this, natively, but if you have anything to share about it I’d love learn more about the use cases.
Multiple currencies go hand-in-hand with localization and it’s very top of mind for us as we’re seeing more and more international Ecommerce stores built in Webflow.
Customer Accounts/user login and membership functionality is currently in development as one of our top requested features. We know that this will have a significant impact on several of the features which you mentioned and allow many more people to build stores within our platform using native Ecommerce.
Pre-orders aren’t designated as a specific feature build yet, but you can set up Zapier flows for purchase events to trigger emails and sort customers into specific lists based upon pre-orders. We’ve seen several stores take this approach successfully.
Abandoned cart flows are something we’re also looking into offering, though I don’t have a timeline or firm commitment on this feature natively, yet.
Gift vouchers aren’t on the current road map, but we do offer the ability to create custom discount codes within each store.
Manual tax rules are something our team is exploring further, right now we offer a few ways to configure taxes for stores.
Native subscriptions is something we’re planning to offer and is something we’re working on in tandem with customer accounts/functionality. There are several third party integrations available at the moment, but we hope to offer this one day as well.
Thank you again so much for asking difficult questions, Joel.
Timeframes are difficult to predict due to the complex nature of software development. With building anything, new information and regulations arise each day, and we want to build the best possible product to serve as many customers as possible. These endeavors take time, research and deep levels of development as we work to enable everyone to create for the web. We can definitely show up and provide more transparent feedback to everyone, so we’re investing in this area to ensure that we do that. Thank you so much for your patience as we build out our team and our presence here.
I understand that some of these responses may not be exactly what you’re looking for, but I want you to know that we’re here to help, we’re dreaming big, and we’re never giving up.
Thank you again for your candor and kindness, we’re making progress each day and you can expect changes both here and in the Wishlist over the next 30-60 days and beyond.
