Selling images with osCommerce-Shop


Recommended Posts



I'd like to sell images (underwater photos) with my osCommerce shop.


The problem is that the price depends on different circumstances e.g. the usage (newspaper, book, internet ...), the size (A3,A4 or 400x300 pixel or ...), the edition (10.000 newspapers or 2.000.000 newspapers) ...


The user has to enter (by html select-boxes or radio-buttons) his requirements and my system can calculate the price for him online (some javascript).


I will store the base price of the image in the database and with different factors I can calculate the final price!



base price = 20 Euro

usage internet: factor 1.5 -> price = 30 Euro

duration 6 month: factor 2 -> price = 60 Euro



I think about two different solutions for this problem:


A) Calculate the price with Javascript and store the price in the order


B) Store the requirements in the order


I prefer B because A is manipulable. Besides osCommerce support product features - could be my requirements.


The entering of the product features is a little bit dhtml. I have to inherit the product features to all my images. Can Easy Populate do that for me?



Is it a good idea to solve this problem in that way?



Thank you
