The e-commerce.

Getting customer data for each product ordered


Recommended Posts

We are offering classes online in our osCommerce store. If a company comes in and signs up 10 people for a class, we need to collect name and address info for each person attending. How can this be accomplished?

There are several ways to accomplish it.


One is to make a form, where each employee can enter his data on his own. kind of an addition to the existing customers data. But the disadvantage is, that the customer has to go through the checkout many times.


Next possibility would be to add a list to the checkout process where the customer can enter the data and read the form as an array which can be put into the database. Like:


First name Last Name street city phone birthdate

John Doe .... ... .... .....

Kathy Miller . ..... ... ..... .....


This can be controlled by the number of places the customer has booked. If he booked ten, he gets ten rows in the form.


Or he gets an email to sent in a list of the participants with the following data... Less work, but the customer may make errors. If the data are not needed in the database, the latter would work as well.
