I have a client that wants me to build a three part system for him.
- products are displayed on his site - no prices, no ability to purchase... just so people can see what he has.
- someone calls him to place an order and he can create the order in the system. He negotiates special prices on certain products so maybe he gives them $20 off for item A and no discount for item B. He has dealers who call and get wholesale price... all other orders get retail price.
- He wanted me to make a log in for distributors so they can build their own order with their own discount. Each distributor gets a % discount on the entire order (anywhere from 0-20%).
None of these steps require payment to be made online. So, I don't need any payment processing.
I had started building this as a custom phprunner project, I'm just wondering if the cart might save time.
So, basically I'm looking at one of two solutions...
A. I build my own cart features into my custom product as best I can.
B. I start with the cart template and try to add in all the things I need (such as wholesale / retail pricing) while also trying to KILL any features I do not want. Such as online payment, etc.
