    Default Installment Plan Payment Module [Support thread]

    The Installment Plan Payment Module is now available at

    http://www.zen-cart.com/index.php?ma...roducts_id=588

    It is based on the manual credit card payment module, but breaks the total payment up into a number of payments (specifiable by the shop owner), thus providing "financing" for your customers. It is designed to replace the "Layaway" module which did the same thing but transmitted the information in clear text.

    This module does not automate the process of charging the card; this still must be done manually. It simply allows you to offer another payment option.

    Got a bug report today; this module does not play well with the stock cc module. Running both in the same cart will give you grief. A fix will be posted shortly.

    version 1.1 is now available; if you run both the Zen Cart credit card module and this module, you should upgrade.

    Thanks,

    Mr. Scott Wilson

    Your installment module for zencart is a great addition to the zencart payment modules and though I find this kind of payment module extremely valuable
    I would like to propose an addition to your module that would greatly increase it's value.

    I feel that for most of zencart shop owners it would become very confusing to use and keep track of this method of payment if it were widely used by customers because there is no visual input for the shop owner of which customers credit cards have been charged and what balance still remains.

    If you could come up with a way to take the products a customer has purchased with your installment module and visually set them aside in the zencart admin area so the shop owner can keep track of the products purchased with the installment module and the due balance remaining for the customers purchase.
    I feel that this would greatly cut down on the risk that shop owners may double charge their customers credit cards by mistake.

    Additionally, There is no visual representation for the zencart shop owner to what amount to charge it's customer per month like is represented to the customer during the checkout process.

    I also would like to offer the suggestion to let the customer choose the installment billing date because some people may be using a check card to make purchases and may or may not have funds available in the customers credit card or bank account for the transaction when the zencart shop owner initiates the installment transaction for a particular installment payment. This way liability is reduced for overdraft fees and takes the responsibility away from the shop owner for initiating said transaction.

    I am not approaching you to criticize your work or your valuable addition to the zencart community but to share an idea and improve your modules productivity.

    I really think this would help zencart shop owners keep track of who they need to process and when.

    I hope you find this information very helpful:) "beasleybub" zencart community.

    Interesting suggestions. The admin is undergoing modification; let's wait to see what the Zen team delivers in 1.6 and go from there.

    help question Re: Support thread for Installment Plan Payment Module

    Question - is this an item that, once installed, is always available in the cart as a purchase option, or can it be set as an option only for items over a certain price?? I downloaded the package and read thru the readme, looks like a great feature!

    There are no minimum order restrictions but one could certainly be added. It is always available as a purchase option for customers whose group name begins with "invoice" as long as their cart is not all virtual items.
