The e-commerce.

Is there a way to generate an activation key?


Recommended Posts



I am rather new to the OS Commerce world and have been spending a long time going through the thousands of contributions but I have not yet found the functionality that I wish to use. We want to be automating/selling an activation key based on user serial number. Is there a way to do this.


Ideally the process would accept and verify a valid serial number, take payment, check payment status, run the key generation program (which would in turn place the key somewhere for downloading), send the user back a URL from which to download their pretty new key.


On a side note, with so many thousands of contributions it might be nice to make navigating them a little easier... for example sort by popularity, offer a rating system, offer a place for comments. I just do not know which contributions are good/bad/popular by category.


When I try the search feature I often find loads of buttons or some contributions that have components added to them... meaning I have to go down the list of uploads to find the base contribution.


Otherwise, the functionality is looking great. Thanks for any ideas.

What is the activation key used for?



The activation key "activates" certain functionality in a device or software. This means that each key is valid only for a specific device. We could make a massive database of each key (in many cases) but would prefer to generate it on demand.


I think there is a download manager that will serve out the URL but I need to make a call to the key program to make their key.
