Using osCommerce to sell a service...


Recommended Posts

Has anyone used osCommerce to sell a service instead of a product?


We would like to be able to sell monthly and quarterly subscriptions to a service that we offer. When customers purchase the service, we need to have osCommerce flag the account as a valid / paid user with an expiration date.


We could validate users entering the service using the returning-customer information from osCommerce (email address and password that they provided when they paid) and then check to make sure the customer account is flagged as valid / paid. Essentially, our service application would be using the osCommerce database to validate users.

I think it could be done. You could add a field to the customers table called valid and sub_date and when they paid, have it mark the date and set the field to valid. Then set a check somewhere that would check the date and as soon as they're subscription expire, uncheck the valid field. Something along those lines I would imagine. Sounds doable to me anyway.

If every member of this board donated $1 to the dev team, that would be over $11,000.00. Don't you think this cart is worth at least a $1????
