Pay What You Want system
« on: May 06, 2012, 02:09:53 am »
hi all

i am looking for a system the user can setup the price she wants to pay. some people call this "pay what you want".

i want to sell my ebooks and digital music using this system. the user can fill or re-write the price she thinks good for my works.

do you think virtuemart with some extensions or plugins can do this job?

regards
roger

rogertavares,

Maybe you could just set up attribute fields that have a drop down box with a variety of prices you have set?

* really you are looking for a value system of  buyers preferred price.

the buyer simply chooses an option of drop down prices for the product you are selling.

If you are doing an auction ? Then you might use the ask a question tap - but change the wording to say silent bid ? When your bid is met.

 then unpublish the product.

Just say this Post - could be what you are looking for? https://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=102275.0;topicseen

hi john
thank you for your kind reply.

i think a good example is bandcamp.com. it could be even simpler.

like in this page: http://billkiley.bandcamp.com/

you can even choose zero dolars and download the album.

is this makes some sense?
