This requires specific knowledge of asp, MSSQL and Early Impact's Product Cart ecommerce software...
We need a custom page in Product Cart created to be used for our Phone Sales Reps to place orders on behalf of the customer. The goal is to provide a complete list of our products with quantity fields to aid the speed of taking orders over the phone, rather than searching through the store to find the appropriate products.
In admin, once a customer is created or found, after the link to “Place An Order” on behalf of the customer is clicked and the user (rep) is taken into the store front end logged in as the customer, I would like to give our phone reps the ability to browse to this hidden / protected page.
The custom page should have the following qualities/elements top to bottom:
• Functionality to track the phone rep’s affiliate code. We are using the over simplified affiliate system in Product Cart to tag orders for our phone reps. For instance, if the link to this proposed page is, [url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view], the affiliate’s code would translate into the order.
• Complete vertical list of rows, A-Z of all products in the store. This needs to include even products without an assigned category. Each row would have the following items in regards to the product; Product Name, Product SKU, Retail Price, Quantity Form Field.
Product A SKU: XX1 Retal Price: $[url removed, login to view] Quantity: [ ]
Product B SKU: XX2 Retal Price: $[url removed, login to view] Quantity: [ ]
Product C SKU: XX3 Retal Price: $[url removed, login to view] Quantity: [ ]
• If it’s possible to carry this value through the cart, I would also like to include the Order Name variable field after the list.
• The last item on the page would be the Add To Cart button which would add all the products specified in quantities of 1 or more to the Cart.
The rest of the checkout process would remain as is.
We’re switching from a very customized solution in OSCommerce to Product Cart, which comes standard with many more functions that we need to operate our business.
I’m familiar enough with asp to know that this task isn’t terribly complicated as all or most of the elements exist in Product Cart in one form or another.
