  1. What I'm suggesting is that PWA consider having the ability to behave like the site I referenced. The approach is to get the customer to order in the first place, and if they feel forced into creating an account just to order they stop. However if we let them go through and place the order and THEN create the account (with newsletter off etc) and email them the account info to TRACK THE ORDER if they want, that seems like a good thing. Now if they chose to REORDER, they again can go through without logging in (PWA) but the catalog detects they are that account and at least puts the order back under the same account and not creating a duplicate account. If they ever contact support staff, then there is a way of evaluating the account and orders and status. I liked the process that the ink website used, PWA is very close to it so I was wondering if you'd consider in your next revision adopting a similar process? Places like Amazon and Apple FORCE you back into the account, people don't like that even though it makes total sense.

    My apologies to forum Moderator for posting in two topics, I found the proper contribution topic but can't seem to remove my posts here.
  3. I want to see if this contribution functions like the account system on www.00inkjets.com its a PWA like system..it appears to always be PWA BUT allows for login to account it creates when you order the first time. Will PWA create an account after the order is placed? Also, if you REORDER without forcing the account, will PWA recognize the email as an already entered account and thus doesn't create a duplicate account With the inkjets site, the customer is emailed the new account info to follow up on their order. But never FORCED to go back into existing account. This seems to be a big issue with folks I've surveyed....they even say they don' tlike giants like Amazon and Apple for forcing an account.

    I'd like to find the contact info for the Purchase without Account contribution provider. I don't seem to find it in the docs? Or is there a seperate support topic for that contribution?

    Well..maybe the contributors would like to see how their contributions work together? Seems like these modules should be part of the future stock release. You might consider the PayPal contribution topic for help: http://forums.oscommerce.com/index.php?showtopic=95326

    Vendor_Auto_E-mail (In_Development)

    I recently wrote a php script for a client (using Squirrel Cart but it would work here) where we send a product CSV dump to the supplier each night, and they return a CSV response saying what items were no longer for sale, and live stock values. The script receives the response and then adjusts the catalogs inventory and product available status. You might want something more like process, although customized more specifically. You need to have the supplier willing to respond in a process you can work with. What you need can be done as a stand alone code contribution without having it plugin to the osCommerce backbone. contact me if you want a custom deployment.
