I have an existing website with a very good shopping cart to sell jewelry. We source our jewelry from a supplier who have their own website and we have permissions to use their images and data. We buy on wholesale and resell the items online.
We are facing the following problem
1. We are unable to synchronize the inventory on our suppliers website with ours therefore we are displaying products which may be out of stock , since we are receiving orders for these products also the orders are partially filled which means loss of sales.
What we want is a simple but customized shopping cart which DOESN'T require a product database and uses buy button methodology , we will make static buy button links to display a popup a page and fetch data from our supplier's website with stock for the itemid passed as a querystring with "buy link" (This will show the realtime inventory on the suppliers website )This function has already been coded using ASP Tear component . The customer selects the items / quantities and adds to the shopping cart on our website (This has also been implemented partially using ASP Tear component)
What we require from the you is that you develop a shopping cart which doesn't require a product database but only uses the parameters passed to add the product to the shopping cart. The shopping cart should be a universal/generic/flexible cart cleanly coded in ASP only with proper documentation to modify the code later if required.
The only place where we require a database is
1. for customers to register during checkout and On checkout the cart should be saved as an order in a table in the database and the order should be mailed to the customer and us, the customer should also be able to pay online using our credit card payment processor [url removed, login to view] ( We will provide the paramters to be passed)
2. Shipping Table ( calculate the shipping cost based on shipping weight) weight passed as parameter
On backed we will require an admin section to view the customer records and order history , if us can provide a function to edit the orders it will be great.
Another must/very important required feature in the admin section will be mapping of passed parameters to variables used in shopping cart program example - map itemcode to productcode , subitem to productsubid,category to category , attribute1 to attrib1 , attribute 2 to attrib2 price to price and so on.... The variables to be used in the shopping cart will offcourse will be fixed but the admin should be able to defined the passed variables and map them to cart variable , this will serve as a wrapper and will be usefull in case the supplier makes modification to their website structure . Also in the admin section the admin should be able to define how to accept the paramaters i.e as a querystring or as a post variable. The shopping cart should then be able to handle the parameters with appropriate code / ASP collections .
(These 2 features should be implemented Globally)
The shopping cart must also
How it is to be implemented
Content Retreival : ASP , ASP Tear , - Already implemented
Suggestions will be welcome to make the program more feature rich.
This is my first posted project and there will be many more to follow for the programmer who can deliver this solution upto our requirements.
I will send you the url for my website and the supplier website so that you can get a fair idea of what we require , since we want a solution similar to our supplier. We will also provide inputs for integrating the website with the payment processor
