Consignment Store, I need a special Mod


Guest

Recommended Posts

Hello all

 

I was wondering if anybody has tried to create a mod that

would allow a customer to post a listing or product into an available catagory with image, price, discription and then checkout paying for the listing. I guess kinda like an auction but I am building a consignment store

and would like to allow cutomers to post products as well as myself but I would like them to pay for the listing and then pay a commision after the sale.

 

I am no programmer but I can implement contibutions and such and am getting pretty good at modifying the store.

 

I sure would appreciate any help or suggestions

 

Thanks

The easiest solution would be to create a 'product' they buy.

This product is actually the right to list THEIR product.

Once they've checked out / paid for it you e-mail them a link to a

secured page that allows them to upload all their stuff.

That is a great idea, and I will use it for sure but

I guess what I really need is help with the page that they would use to add the product. I don't want to give them access to the catalog in admin, I just need to have the ability to have them choose the catagory from a drop down and then add their product and upload images etc. on a page that works the same as the add a product in admin but is not in admin.

 

Maybe thats not possible..

I would prefer a page (like Burt's 'adder') that would actually drop everything in a DIFFERENT table. That table is used to 'park' their upload. Then, with the click of a button you would add it to the shop. That way you can review what's been added first.

Shouldn't be too hard to adapt Burt's code to do that.

Thanks guys

 

I will look in to Burt's adder.. I really like the idea of a page that

you check or uncheck to update the submissions, however I am new

to php and would not know where to start.

 

:oops: Rocket science is simple to a rocket scientist.

 

I am learning but just got started about a month ago.

 

I will keep on trying though. Any more ideas or help on a page like that would be much appriciated.

 

Thanks
