    Default Maybe I've totally missed it...

    Hello.

    I am setting up ZC for my employer, to play a somewhat specific role in our retail system. Here's what we am trying to implement, just so you know the background of what I am trying to accomplish:

    We supply certain high-priced display components to a major US retail chain, consisting of 5000+ stores. To these stores, we sell 5 or 6 different components.

    Because of the competitive nature of our market, we want to avoid disclosing our pricing to our competitors, as much as is possible. We therefore have the cart set to not display prices unless logged in. This was easily done.

    Additionally, we have our own shipping company which handles transportation. Also, all these stores have accounts with our company already. Therefore, we want to avoid the shipping and payment modules as much as possible.

    Here's how we envision the sales flow going:

    1. Customer adds item(s) to cart
    2. customer checks out, confirming shipping address and order total
    3. E-mail is fired to our sales department, containing an invoice for the order (order total, shipping address, billing address etc.)
    4. Our sales department will take it from there, contacting the customer to arrange shiping, payment etc.


    In order to accomplish this, I need to change a few things:

    I need all new accounts to either require manual approval, or the entry of a authorization code, to ensure that only those we desire to open accounts may open them.

    I also would like to avoid all shipping and payment modules, beyond firing an invoice to our sales team, and confirming the billing and shipping addresses of the customers.

    So far, these forums have been extremely helpful with all the other questions we've had so far. I have not, however, been able to find solutions for these last two issues, although I may have overlooked them on the forum.

    If anyone has any suggestions concerning how to make these changes, it would be much appreciated.

    Thank you in advance for any and all help!

    Also, I forgot to mention - when checking out, I cannot get beyond step 1.

    ie. I get to the page where it asks to confirm my address. When I click on the 'Continue Checkout' button, it sends me to the same page again.

    Does anyone know what is causing this? As it is, purchases could not be made through the store.

    Ignore this... It's probably because I have no payment or shipping modules enabled...

    can be done in the admin under configure customers

    the second cant be done,
    you can sett ALL items to free shipping and then set a PO payment module
    or check mo module with new text but all these steps need to be taken

    I see options there to restrict prices shown to authorized users, and what can be shown to those in authorization pending mode, but where can I set a mode to approve/disprove accounts as they are created?

    As far as the first goes, I am still can't quite figure out what setting I need to set to force approvals of accounts.

    As for the second, i think this module will handle what I am looking for: http://www.zen-cart.com/index.php?ma...products_id=99

    Where can I modify the 'make checks payable to' text?
