Question regarding billing a customer

Recommended Posts

I had a quick question I was hoping someone could help me with.

 

I want to open a store using oscommece however my products will not have any pricing, as this will be discussed with the clients over the phone/e-mail. Is there anyway to get the customers billing info, go through the store, bill them, and be able to bill them for the amount discussed?

 

Thanks,

Joseph

I am not sure what your goal is here or what you mean.

 

Are you going to display services or products.

 

Anyway whatever you are doing .. you could set items (ie. products or products as services) prices to 0.00 amount. That way when they check out they are not charged anything yet.

 

Than you install the Edit Orders Contribuion. After you have agreed upon your terms / prices etc with your customer you can go in and edit the 0.00 order they placed.

 

With order editor you can add (ie. products or products as services) .. change price, tax, shipping, orders status etc. When you are done you can choose to notify the customer and an email will be sent to them with all of the updated order / service details.

 

They can view there orders history as normal when they log into their account ... or print a copy of the invoice etc.

 

There are also contributions like Call For Price etc. that you could modify to suit your needs. Anything could be done if you use your imagination and do a little research of all the contributions. Theres something for everyone.

 

Hope I gave you something you needed.

Anyway whatever you are doing .. you could set items (ie. products or products as services) prices to 0.00 amount. That way when they check out they are not charged anything yet but will have generated an invoice number. You can disable all shipping modules and just use one that handles free or 0.00 amounts. All you have to do is rename the messages to something like 'Submit A Quote' or 'Free Consultation' etc.

 

Or if you don't want them to go through any kind of order process ... just have them create an account. All of their details you need for billing are right there when you go into the edit customers page. If you really want to get fancy you can add the AddressBook Enhancer Contribution which adds more information fields for billing addresses etc. There is even an Extra Fields contribution that shows you step by step how to add an extra field for any kind of information you might want. There is a Contribution called Customers Extra Fields to that you can use to create text input boxes or radio button selections etc. You can create as many options as you like and give each one a unique name. Any new fields you create are than displayed on the create account page and on the admin side in the edit customers page.
