I need to have a site which has a booking function for fishing trips. The site should feature a My Account section where users will be able to view their booking and they should be able to order photographs of their trip. Can anyone point me to a solution for this problem?

The booking engine should be able to work with Worldpay or Paypal

Seems like a custom design job.  You can go to design firms to get pricing quotes for jobs like this one.  Here is one such online form to fill out and they will reply with a pricing quote for you.

There's some of the best templates I've seen at http://www.templatemonster.com.  Much cheaper than a complete custom site.

Yes, for sure web templates, such as those from templatemonster (or any other provider for that matter), may be used by a web designer to make a website cosmetically pleasing; however, they do not provide the database, userlogin, and backenf management console as fusionless requests.

Then dynaweb is right - this question is out of the scope for EE.  There's lots who could provide some quality help if you've got questions on some code you're already working on, but (no offense intended) providing a complete custom solution like this violates our member agreement.

Hi fusionless,

Don't know if you want to buy, use an exisistng system of build it yourself, so i've put some options here.

There are commercial options like this one:
http://www.bookingcenter.com/products/

and free options like this one:
http://www.yourbooking.com/

You can search www.hotscript.com for "booking"and then you get 25 results, some free, most commercial.

Or you can learn online to do it yourself:

Hello Folks,

My we have been busy and thank you for all your responses. I have checked out Hotscripts and have seen what is on offer. The real question I am asking is how do I have an account area where users can check products they have bought in the store and bookings they have made. Is OS Commerce a solution to this?

Hi Fusion,

yes, it is for the store part, it supports paypal as well, but your missing the reservation part.

I've done some searching and could't find software that contains both.
Did find a company which has both in its portfolio:
http://www.queensboroughgroup.co.uk/index.htm
Maybe the can integrate the two?


There are free programs availble:
you also can take a look at http://www.freedownloadscenter.com/Search/
and search for "booking" and "reservation"
