Resource Master Store - help needed
« on: November 03, 2006, 11:05:47 PM »
A while back I tried setting up a store for rpgRM, unfortunatly I had a few problems i couldn't fix.

in particular setting up virtual products for download, and retrieving monies via paypal at a set amount, as the software I was using wouldn't play ball.

So the question is, does anyone have enough knowledge of shoping cart software such as osComerce to make this happen easily?

Can't help you there friend unfortunatly. What sellable products did you have in mind? I would'nt mind selling prints or actual artwork in the future either here or some place else, but like I said, in the future. [:)]

ahh yes the future ;)

what I need is an osCommerce guru.

Selling physical product seems easier than virtual product, and it's pdfs that I am interested in selling, so if anyone knows of an easy package that can do that let me know...

Why not ask at the ICE forums, you might get a bite.
So what type of PDF's are you thinking of??

Yeah, it sonds reasonable to ask about the content and not the mechanics, apparently the latter looks (from the outside) easier to solve than the former.
Are you guys off to something big? :P

I tried setting up a basic osCommerce store, for PDF downloads, however it didn't do what i needed, as i think I got a few things wrong.

mainly payment and shipping issues.

The bit I can help with is that your server has to have a setup for shopping carts.  I tried to setup an osShoppingCart with osSSL, but the server I was using did not support such.  I didn't find out until I contacted their support staff.  They simply said they had no plans to offer such support.  And all that hard work I did with the os software I dloaded.  Oh well...

Check with your server to see if they will support such.  If they won't, then...

The serve can use osC, ZEN and other carts, I am looking at Vitual Mart through Joomla as a simple solution, but there are some issues with downloads to be ironed out by the programmers.
