Re: Support thread for Installment Plan Payment Module
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.
