Hi

Over at my site (precisionracingleague.com) we are wanting to start seeling products that compliment what we do as a site.

We were planning on using the ocportal store since we are already on ocportal.

One thing I was wondering and can;t seem to find the answer to is:

Can we set different prices for different userlevels?

Any help with this would be awesome

Thanks :)

Check out my ocportal site: PrecisionRacingLeague.com which will always be on ocPortal - because it's awesome!

Sorry, that's too advanced for the scope of the ocPortal shopping cart system I'm afraid.

To avoid bloating, ocPortal probably only ever bundle a shopping cart with the basic common features everybody needs. Maybe one day someone will make an ocPortal bridge for one of the larger eCommerce packages out there.

  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

I have access to opencart... how hard would it be for me to make them talk to each other?

This kind of thing usually takes a programmer a couple of days to get the basic shared authentication and sessions working, then a few days themeing - additional time for probably features like you want. So not easy I'm afraid.

Maybe you can just say people have to register on both sites, and you can make an ocPortal access-controlled page that gives out discount codes. Some creative solution like this anyway.
