The native ecommerce store has so many missing features. Why would there not be a way to have different shipping costs for different sized items? Why would there not be a way to offer free shipping for purchases over a certain amount? Why would there not be a way to create coupons or discounts? These are just some BASIC things that should be included in any ecommerce store. I don't understand why these types of things have not been incorporated. So with all that being said, has anyone else been able to resolve these issues without having to scrap the native store completely and switch to the 3rd party option? I would hate to have to shut my clients store down to do that.

    I appreciate the feedback, @Xenia - I've also passed this along to our Product team. I know they are very hard at work adding eComm features, and it's a big focus for Duda this year!

    @ScottyStrehlow Do you happen to know if there is a way to incorporate tracking numbers for orders when they are shipped that the customer can receive via email? Right now my client would have to do that manually. She previously was using a GoDaddy website and this is one of the features that was available to her.

    Hi @Xenia - unfortunately, I don't think this is a current possibility - other than the manual process. I know this is not ideal, and I hope to have an update for you soon - this feature is on the Product roadmap for this year.
