Ahh! I have been swinging between going alone and this software. If you do not create a Add toCart button in Paypal it cannot control inventory. But I am exploring a option of this.
A customer clicks on a Add to cart Button (Also allowing CreditCard use without having a Paypal account). I have got that far. Now if a button is created outside of Paypal then there is no inventory control.
What I am working on is that when a customer completes a transaction and is returned to a success url that url has an onload command that deletes the page that sent the customer to the checkout. That will stop a second customer buying the same product. I have trialed the PHP Unlink command so it is just a matter of arranging the page structure now. The system has to be unsupervised for days perhaps. I am retired and may no be around daily.
The reaon I am suggesting this is that I wish to set up a shop like a online Garage Sale to sell stuff I no longer want.
This shop Builder is still the most easy to use as to do it page by page is time consuming. I will set up my own shop as getting traffic is the same whatever system is used but I for one would like to use the ease of this system. If I was selling one or more I would go for it straight away. If I was selling 1000's I would have it set up for me.
I have given away the Zen Cart as although it does everything someone would ever need, it for me is overkill and not pracical.
So! I know I am only one person and do not really count but although I will drop in from time to time to find out if the one only sale for one only existing item plus a Paypal account optional, is accounted for I am forced to go it alone.
I have just created a Add to Cart creation program for myself all I have to do is create the unlinking of the sending button after sale and it will work perfectly
I may add it to my software applications I sell.
CC beat me to it for the small user and I will ditch my project in producing a simple online store.
The prototype is up at http://mrtworld.com
I bought a domain to test my system and using my existing host site.
I still keep coming back here as I bought Form Builder and absoluly love it, I use it and it saves heaps of time.
I am hoping that this software will do the same thing for me eventually. If I finish what I am working on and I hope I do not have to spend the time it will be a viable alternative for need like mine.
I am modifying a program I sold a few years ago called WebMaxster it was an automatic page producer for the click through trade.
Its amazing how the world goes round. CC Pleas,e I prefer your approach
I will have the automatic page producer finished in a couple of weeks. The button creator is already finished. I do not raly want to get involved in this but the overriding drawcard for me is the sale of one off item when only one item exists.
I will see if you solve the problem before me.
