Order-Specific Custom Fields

There are currently customizable fields that are related to the customer, but no function to create fields that are order specific. Essentially, the same customer could have multiple orders, but each time, these order specific fields may be different.

We are hoping for a way to have fields that are only specific to the order, not the customer.

(One step further would be if we could add conditional fields to both the customer fields, and these order fields. If in question 1, the customer selected option B, and option B required more info, then there could be a related field that only shows if the customer selected option B.)

Thanks for considering this idea!

Ability to Add Blank Products As Related Products

When creating a decorated product, there is the ability to add a related decorated product. I would also like to be able to add products that can't be decorated as related products.

For example for a hoody that has a design related to snowboarding, I could add a woolly hat (that can't be decorated) as a related product.

Please let us put our t shirt designs in more than one category?

It would be great if we can select multiple categories for the graphic designs we upload on deconetwork.

Discount artwork use instead of garments

I'd like the ability to have the artwork discounted for quantity used, rather than the item. This way they could use it on multiple items to tally up to the minimum total. It would also help with discounting embroidery when they use that artwork so many times per order.

ie. The customer could mix and match 6 t-shirts, 6 sweatshirts & 12 bags for the 24 piece minimum of screenprinting. Or, they could get different items embroidered and get the price break associated with the quantities.

Canada Post live shipping integration

I'd like to see Canada post live shipping integration added

For Canadians, the only live shipping option available is UPS.  Just like USPS, it is generally less expensive and more forgiving to use Canad Post

Sales Tax % by Item or Category

In many States within the US have sales tax varies on garments vs. non-garments items, some states even have sales tax difference between adult and children clothing.

A feature to either override line item level tax or the ability set a specific category to a different tax percentage would be awesome!

Reporting is also key, in NYS I have to file with total sales and then an exemption for the sales that were @4% vs. I have to know exact $ for each percentage.


NYS as a State has exempted there 4% tax on cloths tax in my area is 8% on non-garment items 4% state 4% county. On clothing NYS waves the tax is the unit price is below $110 thus mixing the in-state tax ONLY the applicable county level tax...

Here is the documentation from NYS:

Sales and Use Tax Rates On Clothing and Footwear
Effective September 1, 2015

Clothing, footwear, and items used to make or repair exempt clothing sold for less than $110 per item or pair are exempt from the New York State 4% sales tax, the local tax in those localities that provide the exemption, and the 3⁄8% Metropolitan Commuter Transportation District (MCTD) tax within the exempt localities in the MCTD. The MCTD consists of the city of New York and the counties of Dutchess, Nassau, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Suffolk, and Westchester. The exemption applies only to clothing and footwear worn by humans. It also applies to most fabric, thread, yarn, buttons, snaps, hooks, zippers, and similar items that become a physical component part of exempt clothing, or that are used to make or repair exempt clothing.

The following are not eligible for exemption:
• Clothing and footwear that sold for $110 or more per item or pair.
• Costumes or rented formal wear.

Part 1 – Jurisdictions that provided for this exemption
Sales of eligible clothing and footwear costing less than $110 in the jurisdictions below are fully exempt from all state and local sales and use tax (including the MCTD tax).
Publication 718‐C
• Items made from pearls, precious or semi- precious stones, jewels, or metals, or imitations thereof, that are used to make or repair clothing eligible for exemption.
• Athletic equipment.
• Protective devices, such as motorcycle helmets.

For a detailed list of exempt and taxable items, see TSB-M-06(6)S, Year-Round Sales and Use Tax Exemption of Clothing, Footwear, and Items Used to Make or Repair Exempt Clothing (Effective April 1, 2006).
Use this publication to determine the applicable sales tax rates in each county and city that imposes sales tax.

Digitizing Fee Minimum

Would like the option to not only charge a digitizing fee per sq inch, I would also like the option to charge a minimum $ amount for such services. So any order that requires digitizing that is below this minimum $ amount is automatically charged my minimum for this service. All others that are above this minimum $ amount will be charged according to the digitizing fee per sq inch cost.


My Ideas

 It would be nice if I could see all my submitted ideas without searching through all of them, similair to "My Topics" in the forums but my ideas. I hate that I have to even submit and Idea for the Ideas.


Improve scalability of custom domain configuration

This is a techy one, but you should get it sorted...

You currently instruct users to hard-code one IP address as an A record when adding a domain to deconet:


. Will tie you forever to the 1 IP address - if you want to use geo DNS you're stuffed, if your provider goes bust or otherwise wants to use that IP address for something else you're stuffed, if you want to move hosting providers you're stuffed.

. Won't work in the future with IPv6 (they'll need to add AAAA record too)

. Will give your all your stores permanently poor latency (particularly to European end-users) due to the round trip down-under - unless you want to try and get control of that whole IP block, and shift it overseas and introduce multiple routes to it with BGP (you probably don't want to go there).

In short it's a bad idea, and it won't scale...

What you should be telling people to do is point their domains at you using CNAMEs and or NS records - then YOU can change the IP address(es) of the web server yourself when you need to.

Price based on Cost +%

Have an OPTION to have your price set by your cost + markup


For instance if you use a standard mark-up of cost+50% on all your products, you just input your cost in the "cost" tab and then in the "price" tab there is a check-box where you can select to set your price based on cost. You could either have an are right there to input this percentage or when you select your product default that changes the percentage (i.e. hats are 50%, jackets are 25%, etc). Saves us having to do the math on every product we have and would eliminate the size surcharge having to be filled in as well.

Cost by Size

Simple idea since it applies to about 75% of all the products out there. Have an option to create costing based on size!!!


9 times out of 10 a product will have a different price based on size, however the price across different colours will be the same. That being said, we currently still need to input a price for "white, light & dark" regardless of them all being the same. Most products this doesn't take too long to do as there are only 6 sizes x 3 = 18 boxes to fill in. However if you have pants or dress shirts with upwards of 30+ sizes, it takes an extremely long time to do.

Price table for Area pricing

Well, i thought i better add a post here, since the other one seems to have died.. 

The area based pricing method seems be half way finished, its a shame since its a very good feature, but it cant be used yet. 

There is no way of making a discount on this method, which really is a shame,.

We need a pricetable just like in the printing section, with white/light/dark, AND a setup fee. 

We get a lot of customers on our site who order 100 pcs and up, and we would really love to start using the area price, but since there is no discount we cant use it. 

Thanks .. hope this is something that is already on the table for future versions..



Multiple products for campaigns

I would like to see multiple product options and designs for the campaigns implemented.  It would be great if a fundraising group could sell both a tee and a long sleeve shirt or have the ability to add a bag or a mug to a campaign.

The ability to have multiple designs would be great as well.  Having 1-3 design options as well as multiple products would be beneficial.

UK Post Code Validation for Shipping Methods

Hi UK DN Users,

For Shipping Methods for DN in the UK,  a list of counties are displayed for which that Shipping Method is to be available.  Here in the UK we have been using postcodes since the 70s and for our courier service to deliver we will need a valid postcode.  Different timeframes and costs apply to different areas of the UK, so we have provided DN with an extract file of valid postcodes prefixes and associated areas such as  UK Mainland, UK Offshore, Scottish Highlands and Islands and non-UK Offshore.  Using this we will be able to calculate correct timeframes and costs. Without this, I don't see how we can use Shipping Methods at all.  Vote here if you want an up-to-date solution for Shipping!

How have other UK DN suplliers dealt with Shipping?  Please let us know how you have got around this problem, or if you just don't use it.






In the Index why can't there be a direct link to this area "DecoNetwork feature ideas & voting" I feel like it gets lost and you have to click three links before getting here. Feature Ideas and Voting should have a main area that shows the newest post like the other areas in the forum. I don't think all the users are aware of its exsistance or there would be far more voting!
