Re: Can I "Hide" a product?
Our company is doing local repairs, with pickup and delivery. I've been trying to figure out how to handle this in zen cart. Our service works like this:
The customer "buys" a Pick-up product, which has no price but he pays delivery, i.e., we come to his house to get the product that needs repair. Then, when it's finished, we need him to pay for the actual repair, plus the delivery fee again.
I was thinking we could use a hidden product, like described in this thread. When the product is ready, I could create a product with that price and put it in the customer's cart (with master password or super orders, if possible?). It would be hidden as Ajeh explains in this thread. He would be notified to login by email, and the product would be invisible to everyone else, but in his cart and ready for him to checkout and pay for it.
Since we launch our shop on monday, I haven't actually ever used Zen Cart except for testing. Is this feasible? If not, do you have a better idea? If it is a good way to do it, how do I actually add a hidden product like this to a cart, without making it visible for a moment, which defeats the whole purpose.
Currently using ZEN CART v. 1.3.6
