I basically need to add the option of having affiliate products on the website.
Instead of going through the checkout, when the customer clicks the "buy now" button on the product page they get redirected to the affiliates retailer website. Existing product still needs to go to through the checkout as normal.
The affiliate redirect should open in a new window with a loading page telling the customer that they are being redirected to the "[xyz] store" to complete their purchase. (We would like to be able to customize this redirect page with the ShoeSales logo and make it look nice) see attached file of an example.
See here for an example of what we mean (click the "buy now" button to see what happens) : [url removed, login to view]
I think we need to create some additional product attributes such as:
- Retailer (this is the name of the affiliate website. e.g. Wanted Shoes)
- Affiliate url link (this is where the customer gets redirected to)
- A attribute to to identify if the product is our own stock= normal checkout or affiliate stock = redirect to retailer.
- There may be something I have missed?
Let me know your thoughts on how we can do this the best way and if you have any better ideas?
I will send the next project as a separate job... Thanks
