ecommerce solution for member access
Posted on 2005-04-12
Hello there! I'm asking if anyone knows of a good php ecommerce solution to handle a membership style site. our site is getting ready to be subscription based and we will be using authorize.net for credit card processing. whatever solution it is needs to be customizeable so it can send usernames/passwords and a few other variables to my login system. when a users account is about to expire they will be sent an email and they should have the ability to login to their ecommerce account and renew their subscription. Again, we already have a php/mysql loign system that i have written myself so i have all source code. when we go live with the paid site, all accounts will be wiped and we'll start from scratch. currently i md5 the passwords but i've decided to store the passwords in the login system in plain text because nothing in the database on the login side will be important information. basically, i just need a simple billing solution; one that people setup their account on, choose a subscription type (1 month, 6 month, 12 month), choose a payment type, and then based on what type of payment they choose, it sends all of this information to my script and i'll write my script to process the posted data. some of the data posted will be the time of subscription and i'll store that in my login database. 10 days before their subscription runs out, they'll be sent an email to go back into the billing solution and renew their account and a new date will be sent to my script.
hopefully this is clear to all.
thanks in advance!
