Options, Discounts, and Hand Processing

1. I have a client who wants to have several options on the products (i.e., "Sand Wedge, 52 degrees, etc"), and he wants a static cart. What would be the easiest way to add several options.

2. How would I implement the discounts, if a customer buys one of a certain club, cost would be $XX.XX. If he buys 2 then the coust would be $YY.YY, and if buy 3, then cost would be $ZZ.ZZ.

3. Lastly, the client wants to hand process all of the transactions himself. How would I set up the checkout process. This is troubling, because the current way that it is being done, is the customer fills out his/her credit card info, is sent to an SSL page, and it is then e-mailed to the client for processing after the product is custom made. Storing the credit card info is almost as bad as emailing it, and the customer does not want to use a gateway.

Thank you in advance,
Duncan

1) Just add several columns to the cart to account for all of the options.

2) If it doesn't follow a regular formula you would have to store all three or four or however many prices in that many separate columns. Then you can use a calculation to determine the correct price based on quantity.

3) You would want the SSL on the page with the form. You should never send credit card information in an email. If you need to store it in the database, you can use something like mcrypt() in php to encrypt the card number from a key for optimal security. Another option that isn't horrible is to only store the card number until it is used and then delete it. The last thing you want is a database with all of your customers credit card numbers over time. Reducing the length of time card numbers are stored and encryption are both good ways of minimizing the risk of storing credit cards.
