Re: Consignment Feature
i am very interested in a module like this and willing to help as much as i can on this sort of project.
We run an online bookstore and a module like this is something that we could use to have customers sell used books on our sight, much the way amazon does.
some of the key points that i thought were neccessary to make this work are
- adding a field to customers acct that holds the customers account balance- this way a customer can choose to either have the funds from sale of used item transfered to a paypal acct or used towards the purchase of items in our shopping cart.
- buyer would pay shipping fees, and we would have seller print out shipping tag to send sold items, acct penalty would have to exhist to ensure prompt shipment, funds would have to remain locked until transaction completes.
- shipping module would have to figure the starting and end location to ensure proper shipping fees are charged.
i have been scowering the web looking for simalar projects and also looking through oscoomerces sight to see if theres anything similar that could be ported. anyone that may have any ideas or suggestions or feels that this is a project that they may want to contribute to please send me a mssg.
