Is Re-Order possible??
« on: September 01, 2009, 19:55:51 pm »
Hi there... I've used VirtueMart several times for production sites, it's the best shopping cart in the internet.

One of my client asked for a feature that would make possible for the costumers to re-order a previous order.

Let's imagine that last month a costumer bought 10 items from my online store. This month he want's to buy exactly the same items.

To do that, he would have to add to cart each of those items, one by one.

Now imagine how easy it would be if that costumer could just login to the site, access his account details, and open his last order. There will be a "magic button" saying: Click here to order this items again!

All items will be added to the cart and costumer will do the check out normally.

Anyone knows if this is possible?! Maybe a hack??

Thanks and sorry for bad English.

just to clarify, imagine you ordered a pizza online, the next week you want the same order...the online pizza ordering systems from the popular pizza outlets allow you to "re-order" your last meal, i.e you dont have to go through and select your toppings again, you just click "re-order" from previous order.

tyvm again :)

keywords (to help people find this) : re-order, reorder, repeat previous order

Yes, this can be done, but not with a standard installation of mambo-phpShop. This is one thing for the Wish List.

A fixed repeatable product order list for each user....

There is a re-order module available for purchase that allows publication of a joomla module containing a list of products you have previously ordered, a qty box and re-order button. This works to allow users to re-order individual items they have ordered previously with ease, but not replicate entire orders, however is a decent solution.
