Customers Who Bought This…

By | April 27, 2011

I was approached by a new client who uses osCommerce both as a shop and as a sort of “community”. What this client wanted was a way to show who had bought each product…

Step 1, was to add the ability for clients to add an “avatar” as part of the create_account process.

Step 2, was to code up a module to show on each product page, showing each person (who bought the item) avatar.

Easy as 123 to get something quite basic up and running.

Step 3, is to code up a way for the customer to change/delete their avatar. The best place for this is in the account_edit.php page – but this is something for the future as the client is quite happy with the code as is (at the moment).

    I think you are getting close to the realms of shop and forum/blog 😀

    Which so happens is ultimately what I would like to achieve

    Looks a good idea – when is the forum being added lol

    Ugh – forums. It would be fairly straightforward to bridge oscommerce forum – at least for creating users in both.

    “Ugh – forums.”

    Whatever drives sales 🙂

    I have downloaded osC forum but still haven’t looked at it yet – I’m still trying to deal with archaic Royal Mail programs to integrate with osC and eBay CSVs, batch printing of invoices (done thankfully), create orders (still needs linking to my payment gateway) and a host of other things including manufacturing the products that make everything possible…
