Another issue was minimum ordering. We originally THOUGHT we were
wanting a minimum of *flags.* Turned out, after working with pricing,
that we want a minimm *dollar* amount.
P/S offers volume pricing, where I was able to force the pricing to our
minimums. It`s a kludge, but it showed me some of the background issues
of working with a full-featured Shopping Cart.
In fact, our original system was to sell banners. But we get orders for
ROPE banners that can have 5 flags, or some that have 24 flags. To list
each banner, in increments of +1 flag would be cumbersome and redundant.
Then there`s the issue that we can have a Rope banner that can go any
length, but also a vertical hanging banner, that has constraints due to
wall height (or door height).
We began to see that we have to sell flags. A flag is a flag. They`re
mostly all the same, except for casing, and that`s yet another variable. I
can trap for the "Banner Type" (1,2, or 3), and based on the variable,
assign a casing type. But not in PrestoSell. That`ll require a
programmed shopping cart.
