Custom Shopping Cart - Wordpress
Hello. I am starting a project for an investigative services company. They want to have the ability to sell background reports online.
Basically, this would require a custom input form integrated into a shopping cart where the user inputs name/address/SSN & the ecommerce plugin
transmits this info to the client, as well as processes a credit card payment.
The firm would receive the order information & send a digital report pdf to the customer.
I'm very familiar with Wordpress. I've checked out getshopped.org - this seems ideal; yet I will require an additional level of customization beyond a
simple shipping cart
Any suggestions you can provide would be very helpful.
Cart66 and Gravity Forms can give you a few additional options. What kinds of features are you looking for?
I would give the "tribulant" shopping a try: http://tribulant.com/plugins/view/10...ng-cart-plugin
No matter what third-party shopping cart you use, there will be some customization to fit your client's unique needs.
In any case it cheaper than creating a custom shopping cart from scratch.
You could use any shopping cart and let the client submit the details after the payment was processed.
I agree get the money first then the details. Once they pay their more committed to a longer form to fill out.
Cart66 (mentioned above) comes bundled with Gravity Forms which lets you define exactly the collected information you want with each order. There are video tutorials on the Cart66 site (http://cart66.com/) which, if I recall, demonstrate this customization. In addition, Cart66 is easy to implement and its features are "okay" though not robust.
You can try the free Cart66Lite version first (though it does not include the bundled Gravity Forms).

The features would be pretty simple; just a mechanism for tracking the order, process the SSN information securely, etc..
thanks very much. I'll research this !
