The e-commerce.

Management of temporary item numbers


Recommended Posts

Dear experts,

I hope somebody has done this before with osCommerce.


I need to do customized products. Think of it like embroidered hats, where one first has to design the motive and then can produce and sell the hats. people should be able to describe the text or upload the graphic file as input to the design process. (However, I asked about this idea in another thread already).


My question here is, how to manage item numbers in the orders and shipments. Every customized item is new and should get a temporary item number. Once it is approved I'd like to give it a permanent item number,as it then can be sold to other customers as well (with some minor customization).


How would you handle that? Could I create the new items, after I finished and rewrite the order, so that it now does include the items with the new numbers, rather than the temporary numbers with heavy customization?


Any ideas? Is there some sort of API for item number substitution? Would I have to export and import the items? How about the existing order?


Thanks for your thoughts.
