Can VirtueMart do the following??
« on: January 27, 2010, 06:06:23 am »
I have about 200 perishable items whose prices change regurlarly. I just want to list all the items so that my customers can make an online order and i can receive the order via email.

No prices will be listed at all. So, customers just need to put items in a cart and checkout. The order comes to me via email.

No prices, no charge, no money exchange. Just purely a quantity choice, and item then they checkout and i get an email with their order.

I have figured out the CSVI bulk upload mostly, but i cannot get the checkout features to work properly, or even show up.  THe modules are installed.

Can VirtueMart support 'no money' 'no-prices' checkout?

I also dont understand the modules in virtuemart, which is the one that activates the checkout???

You cannot add to cart any items with no price. Some have hacked VirtueMart to act without prices as a quote system, so search the forum for quotation and be prepared to do some coding.

VirtueMart manuals are here

I would suggest hire a developer and get this done - if you post in the commercial jobs section you should get answers
A lot of questions are answered in the VM 1.1 User Manual please read it before asking questions.
