We need some customizations made to our licensed ecommerce application. The
"ProductCart" ([url removed, login to view]) comes with the full source code and is
written in pure ASP, and therefore fully customizable. You will receive the
full Active Server Pages source code. If you are proficient with ASP, you will
be able to make modifications to the system so that it better fits our needs.
Change #1: ProductCart includes the ability to offer Retail and Wholesale
pricing depending on the customer's login. We want to take full advantage of
this feature however we would like to change it into a "Member" "Non-Member"
feature instead of "Retail and Wholesale".
We would like to have our customers to purchase a Membership fee then have
instant access to the "Member" Pricing. Currently the administrator has to sign
in and set the "User" as a wholesale member manually. We would like to automate
this step once the fee is paid .
Change #2: We would like to add a module that allows the customer to schedule
shipments of products on certain dates and delay billing until shipment date.
(this could be setup as a subscription type payment system where they pay a
deposit to schedule shipment and full payment is processed the day the delivery
is scheduled) Attached is an excel flow chart of the project.
Change #3: The third module we would like to add to this application is a built
in reminder service. When our customer is Logged into their account, we want
them to enter dates, the name of the occassion (wife's birthday), a comment box
for them to have the option to add more information, and have the product cart
send out a reminder before the event. How long before the event they are
notified (1 day, 1 week, 2 weeks etc...) would be chosen by the customer. On
the admin side we would like to have the ability to customize the reminders so
they go out with monthly specials or gift sug gestions.
