The e-commerce.

Considering using osCommerce & have some questions


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I'm considering using this product on our library's web site. We have some PDF versions of documents that we'd like to charge for.


I already have a mysql database & php page set up to display these documents to the user, my question is can I use this product just as a shopping cart? Or would I have to convert my databse to match this one?


Any tips, suggestions, comments are welcome.


Thanks so much!

your database will need to go this way,. there is a built in download function in osCommerce where you can charge the customer for your pdf file.

Shouldn't be to difficult. the hardest part will be mapping all of the column and datatypes properly.


Probalby need to look at the following tables.







Keep a close eye on those datatypes as well.


NOTE: As of Oct 2006, I'm not as active in this forum as I used to be, but I still work with osC quite a bit.

If you have a question about any of my posts here, your best bet is to contact me though either Email or PM in my profile, and I'll be happy to help.
