The e-commerce.

Ordering Out of Stock Products


Recommended Posts

Here's my second (hopefully quick) question:


I have a client who sells custom made knives. He will be selling knives he has in stock. When he runs out of stock, he wants to allow a customer to submit a "Custom Order" to have the knives made. Here is the functionality he is requesting:


If the knife is in stock (The normal order process):

a ) The price is $50


If the knife is NOT in stock:

a ) The price is $50, but only $25 is charged as a down payment. (The final payment will be taken over the phone on completion of the knife...)

b ) There is a special "agreement" they need to agree to.

c ) They can add *Rush Creation* to the knife which costs an additional $50 (doubling the cost of the knife).


Is this something that can be done with osCommerce? Inherently? Plugins? Custom Programming?


Thank you for your time responding to my (noob) questions.
