I have inherited a B2B Umbraco website which is set up to sell products - except there is currently no online payment system.
This is because there is a very complex pricing structure which needs some manual input into.
So a customer chooses a product, selects the options, essentially adds products to a basket, and then the request is submitted to a member of staff, who manually calculates and provides a quote.
We are trying to implement an automated process which allows for the calculation of product costs, plus a payment gateway.
We need therefore:
- a way to create a complex cost calculator based on the options for different products and product uses
- a solution for taking online payments
Being new to Umbraco, I wondered if there were any suggestions?
Is the current e-commerce solution built using a package such as uCommerce, TeaCommerce, etc? Or is it a custom build?
Not sure, I will find out - thanks for the reply.
It's a custom build using Umbraco v6.Hope that helps!
Given there is a customer calculation involved in the process, my guess is that making a custom checkout process may be the best way forward. My guess is forcing the custom calculations into a "shopping cart / ecommerce" package may be about the same amount of work. However, you could ping then and see if they have any advice (Merchello, uCommerce, Tea Commerce, etc).
As long as you are familiar with ASP.NET MVC and payment gateways, it shouldn't be too bad. If you don't have any experience with Umbraco, I would recommend buying a month of Umbraco.tv and review that to get a good intro to how things work. Taking a training wouldn't be a bad idea either.
Other than that if you can get your questions here to something a little more focused and less specific, there are some really smart and friendly people who will help.
Thanks so much Jason, that's a good place to start.
