We have some clients that want actual photos of their products on our websites instead of the designer mock ups. We would LOVE if we could set a listing image for each color and have it show up on the product page (where you actually order the product and can see the product information).
I know that I can make an exclusive product for a store and set the "color" images be the actual photographs, but for a store with over 10 designs on the same t-shirt, that's extremely time consuming.
I envision the process something like this:
1. Go to "Manage Decorated Products" then click "Create Decorated Products" and design as normal.
2. After you set the Retail Price, there should be an option to "Save and Finish" or "Upload Finished Product Photos"
3. Click "Upload Finished Product Photo" and you see the product colors you've chosed. From here you can upload product photos for any color previously selected for that product, any color left blank would use the mock up as it currently stands.
This way, we would get the production files and our retail websites would have a more professional, polished look.
Is this something anyone else is interested or is it just me?
I have many new affiliates that sign-up, create a basic store based around the default template and then nothing! I think a step-by-step video just for new affiliates would be a big help in getting them to build their store and add products.
I think it would be awesome if Deconetwork could make a blog for fulfillment shops and affialites to use on their own sites, in the website pages area.
I would like the Stock Designs catagory to be opened or changed in a way for the customer to see it more easily, If not then I would like the ability to bring an entire catagory into the Store Design area so it shows for the customer.
We would like the ability to duplicate page sections (ie Categories of Decorated Products, Blank Products or Designs)
Also, the ability to have more that one content area would be great
Right now, if you leave your customer a note via business hub, the note is available to read in the history/notes area. Often times my production staff does not see these notes because they are not going to be looking at each individual order, rather they are looking at the production sheet which does not include these notes.
I would like any notes pertaining to the order to be printed out with the production sheet as well as visiable on the production area of business hub.
It would be awesome if we could use themes the way Joomla or Wordpress uses them. For instance www.themeforest.com could provide us with thousands of themes if they could work into the deco platform easier.
Obviously we want to see the responsive themes. I understand this is probably a project that is already happening. but maybe the voting system will help push it along.
This may be in the works with the "overhaul designer project". I would like to see touchscreen ability with the designer. Touch to select objects, pinch and stretch to resize, and other basic touchscreen funtions to make the designer much more user friendly on touchscreen devices.
The current deconetwork website design is behind the times, not compliant with digital marketing and hinders business growth.
** Implemented in V8!
I would like to see the fundraiser option. I believe this option should be avaible on the fulfillment domain and affiliate domain.
Client designs product.
Client choose markup on wholesale price, then choose how many they would like to sell. An estimator then would tell them what they can expect to earn if they reach their goal.
Information About Campaign / launch
Client then can write some information about their campaign to encourage their followers to purchase. Client can then share their campain on social networks and other means.
I'm sure their are alot of others things that would be awesome to include. just wanted to get the idea on the voting system.
Team Names isn't really applicable to name badges, etc. We can rename 'artwork' and 'text' but not this field.
The ability to display new custom products with a message that would say "Coming Soon" and a button or field for customers to enter and submit an email for inquiring for that particular item, also for items that were out of stock from our supplier but are waiting for more, instead for us to turned it off would be nice to display a message like "Temporally out of stock" and again a button or field for them to enter and submit an email to contact them and letting them know that particular item is back on stock and ready to order.
No Longer valid.
A form or the capabilities of capturing variable data, for same design and different info like names, dates, etc., a Google form would help, it just would need a script to generate the form with the order/customer details for reference of the order, other ideas? If this could be done internally would be great, this way it would be production ready, one could create a template with the variable fields setup in the design, all the customer would have to do is enter the data in the appropriate fields, then Deco would generate the product design with the variable data ready for production, this could be use for Name Badges, Plaque Plates, Awards, Mugs, keychain's, etc.
Some type of pattern generator, you upload a pattern seamless tile and the generator would fill an object, text or graphic, with a particular pattern and with the ability of scaling the pattern fill.
I'm not sure this how many people offer these kinds of deals on their stores, but we would love to offer a single item packaged purchase. We want to be able to include multiple products into one nice single add to cart item. We've done this a few times on our store by creating a product type specifically for that package and using custom fields to indicate sizes and each view to be the product, but it’s very unclean and does not work large scale having to make new product types all the time. Just have the ability to package preexisting products from our library into a single product type.
In our master library we've now reached about 100+ pages of products offered. As it stands the only way to quickly find products when adding a new decorated product to a store is you have to go to the category which the product is under and then remember which page you can find said product on. It would be great to have a similar search bar is in the product section in the decorating section, just type in the product id or name and get the same results.
Rather than asking for integration with X, Y, and Z... I'll just leave this here. Zapier already integrates with 300+ web apps and is adding more all the time.
Deco triggers could include:
New customer, New order, Order ships, etc
Deconetwork currently integrates with stripe.com for credit card processing, but doesn't take advantage of Stripe's ability to store customer information.
Alternatively, Deco could just integrate stripe's 'Checkout' option -- https://stripe.com/checkout
Imagine if the site and desiger were responsive and worked great on touchscreen devices, then we also had the ability to add a simple credit card reader via usb / phone jack to run credit cards. Like paypal here and square. Basically making a kiosk. I was originally wanting the Deco kiosk to finish development, but thats been long gone Im afraid. I'm sure the security issues involved with this kind of project are great but well worth it in my opionion.
Allow for custom order status with custom e-mails. There should be internal ones as well as those visible to the customer.
I would like to have the option to charge affiliate stores on a monthley basis. Not saying I would charge everyone, However I do have some affiliates that keep matarials and pre decorated Items at my shop. As their fulfillment center, not just their print fulfillment center, I would like the ability to charge each store independently. I currently do it offline but It would be much nicer if it could be intergrated into the deco system.
