Sell time limited property listing on eCart

Sell time limited property listing on eCart

I want to create a site that allows real estate agents to advertise their property listing by paying a listing fee. This is how it works. Agent fills a form with the property details. He chooses X number of days to list his property on my site. In order for the ad to be published, he has to pay me a fee calculated as X days multiplied by $Y. This amount will be passed to PayPal for processing. Upon a successful payment, his ad will be published. Meaning, there must be a means to receive the payment status from PayPal in order to change the publish status from unpublish to publish. Can this be done with eCart6?

It can be done.

you would need to use paypal Express checkout or Payments Pro.

when the transaction goes through, it will store the order summary and details in the oreders and order details table.

set up the add to cart button so that it stores the property ID in the cart, this will allow the property ID to also be stored in the order details table along with the amount paid.

on the page that you display the properties, you can would need to create a recordset that looks for the property ID in the orderDetails table

use an if statement to only show the property if the ID is in the order details table and the current day is between the time frame they purchased.

if you need help configuring this, we con help in a premiere support appointment:
