Any Contribution to create a custom order?

Recommended Posts

Here's the situation. I have people emailing me alot asking to buy the item at a negotiated price. It's all good until when I want to give them a link to pay for the item for the discussed price. I thought thats what Step-by-Step Manual Order contribution does, but it waaay doesn't.

 

So I was thinking there's gotta be a contribution that creates a section in admin for you to choose an item and edit the price and even shipping fields to email to the customer for them to go thru the shopping cart process. Any ideas?

I also have A LOT of custom orders. (About 95% of our sales) I found that if you install the enable/disable categories contribution, you can create a category called "custom orders". Then bookmark that category for yourself and disable it. Then you can add your custom orders to that category and send users the direct link to their custom order product. No one can directly browse to it but it is still accesible by direct link.

 

Hope this helps.

You don't need the contribution. In phpMyAdmin, after creating the bookmark, just manually change the parent_id of that category to a category_id that does not exist. Now, you can only access that category via the bookmark.

 

Hth,
