I hope everyone is doing well. I had several questions regarding the tax setup in Treepl CMS’ eCommerce releases. Mary from Treepl support was able to help me navigate through a few of the questions, but there is one feature that is missing that I think is really important for US-based Treepl CMS eCommerce users: charging customers tax based on their shipping zip code. The response was:
We’ve implemented this item like it was on BC (you can’t change the country and the zip code on the shopping cart in the checkout, it means that these fields are already filled and not editable).
So there are two ways to implement your request:
1) You could suggest this feature in the Treepl backlog as built-in (there is a possibility that other US Partners may also need this feature).
2) We could custom implement this feature for you on this particular site:
We’ll need a list of zip codes for each state.
This will take us 3 business days and will cost approximately $350
Luckily for now, both of my clients have opted to just not charge tax or shipping and built the cost into the products. Am I the only one that thinks this feature would really benefit the platform and open Treepl CMS up a bit as a competitive platform in the US eCommerce space? Thoughts? I’d obviously prefer to not have to include an additional $350 for every client that wants to use Treepl CMS to host their eCommerce sites. I find it really challenging to place Treepl CMS in the same space as other eCommerce platforms such as Shopify, BigCommerce, WooCommerce, etc.
This isn’t a complain by any stretch of the imagination, the Treepl CMS team has done a wonderful job of getting all of the Adobe BC features built on Treepl CMS (and done so even better than Adobe in many instances). However, I’m thinking of ways that Treepl CMS can exceed what was offered in Adobe BC. To be honest, Adobe was so limited that I decided to build most of my eCommerce sites on alternate platforms because of the limited features/functionality on Adobe BC where eCommerce was concerned. I’d really like to see Treepl CMS become a front-runner in the eCommerce space so that it can be my primary platform for my client’s websites.
Any thoughts from the Treepl CMS partner community about adding this to the backlog?
