  1. Optimize the code

    Magento is crazily resource intensive.
    Large numbers of queries are executed that don't use indexes, and commands aren't concatenated that could be (which stops database servers from taking advantage of internal optimizations.)
    A large push on optimizing code would be very much appreciated and increasingly needed.

    • Switch from Prototype to jQuery

      This would be a pretty extensive change to the code, but needed if Magento is to stay fresh. jQuery is a much more robust and easy to use framework than Prototype, not to mention that it is much more actively developed for. Community support for jQuery far outweighs support for Prototype.

      • Edit order without creating a new one

        Wouldn't it be nice to edit an order without having to create a new one, or just quickly edit the shipping address?

        • Document the system properly

          Not just for end users, but also for developers. And keep this documentation up to date so we don't waste crazy amounts of time trying to figure stuff out based on out of date information

          • Gift Certificates/Gift Cards for community edition

            Allow customers to purchase physical (physical card mailed to recipient) and virtual (code provided via email
            to recipient) gift certificates/cards. Customers can include a personal message when purchasing, and recipients
            can use the value to purchase items as credit in the store

              • Custom order statuses

                Administrator should be able to create own statuses for orders and determine the rules of their shifts. Good to give the administrator more control over the order (change the status from any to any)

                • import function that really works

                  It would be great if the import/export really worked.
                  Like importing bundle and configurable products.

                  • Return Merchandise Authorization

                    I think a nicely integrated RMA feature would be very helpful for most businesses. The customer should be able to select individual items from their order to RMA, and the admin should be able to approve/deny the RMA and issue RMA numbers from the admin panel to the customer. There should be communication to the customer on the RMA status and instructions on what to do.

                      • Proper international addressing

                        Magento is developed as a US system. Consequently, it does not cope with international address issues sufficiently.

                        1. In France the departements are part of the address, in Holland the provinces are not. So in Magento, it should be possible to enable/disable the field "State / province / county".

                        2. In the US postal code are place behind the city name, in Germany the required position is _in front of_ the city name. This option also needs a checkbox. on a per country basis.

                        3. The way people are addressed varies widely, from "Dear Bill Clinton" through "Sehr geehrte frau…

                              • Custom Stock Availability

                                Actually there is two stock possibility : "in stock" or "out of stock"... It really miss to be able to add a date of new availability or some customs value like "in stock at the supplier", "usually ships in 1 week"... Almost all shop on internet have this option, but not in Magento...

                                  • Shipping per item

                                    Magento should allow for an item to have special shipping parameters set - i.e. pick up only, flat rate, shipping table

                                        • Authorize.net CIM Integration

                                          It would be very helpful if Authorize.net CIM (Customer Information Manager) was integrated with Magento.

                                          This would allow merchants to store sensitive data such as credit cards on Authorize.net secure PCI DSS servers.

                                          Authorize.net CIM integration would allow recurring billing, storing a customer's credit card info for retrieval on future purchases, and retrieval of sensitive data needed fo fraud detection services.
