We are wanting to develop a Magento extension that removes the manual process that our wholesale customers currently experience. Whilst achieving this we would also like to ensure that our customers still have the ease of ordering by keeping the process simple and familiar.
We would like to use this opportunity to offer extra value to our customers by allowing them to track orders, pay online and enjoy a typical ‘ecommerce’ experience.
We would like to develop a Magento extension that allows our wholesale customers to order from a spreadsheet, add to cart, pay and then track orders going forward.
The spreadsheet is that would you would normally expect and will allow customers to quickly add a quantity, per product, per variable per line and then submit the spreadsheet as an order.
• The sheet must allow customer to tab through the quantity fields to quickly add ‘amount’ of product.
• The sheet must be password protected.
• The sheet must be easily amended through the product catalogue.
• All orders from the sheet need to be fed into Magento in a normal fashion. That is, per product per line.
• The sheet must have the capacity to display products on a line by line basis with the product variables also within its parent line.
• The sheet must have a tab function so that customers can view products per category/range.
• The sheet to order confirmation process must remain similar to conventional checkout process.
