Introduction to custom checkout module
No e-commerce tutorial can be complete without a shopping basket routine
I have therefore developed a custom shopping basket based around a single Server Connect action
This can be modified or used as a “black box” solution for non coders
It supports addition, removal and updating of the basket with the intelligence to match duplicated items and update if adding an already added item
It caters for a product ID (numeric or alphanumeric), quantity and 3 “qualifier” fields to cater for options like size, colour etc
In production the qualifiers would probably be custom select options filtered on products, a technique discussed here. In this demo they are simply text entries.
So here is a short video introducing the checkout before I publish the “How To” videos
