What Info Needed When Ordering?

    1. Do I need to know planned directories structures, products, etc prior to ordering if I'm going to have you install? Or do I just need my site url? Other than my personal & payment info, what other info will I need to have on hand when I order if I ask you to install?

    2. I would like to be able to require different info fields for members of different areas if possible. Is it possible to have different signup/purchase screens with different input fields for different products/sub-directories? Or does this require additional copies to be installed?

    3. I've read several posts concerning recurring payments.
    -----3a. Does the customer see any bad/wrong dates info?
    -----3b. Does the payment continue to automatically recur until 2012 (unless cancelled by customer) or does it need to be renewed after 1 year?
    -----3c. Will you later be offering a software solution to changing the 2012 automatically to a later date? Or will we at some point have to either change each member manually or have each customer renew manually?

    Thank you and God Bless!

    Does anyone know the answers to the above post? I am ready to order, but need answers so can provide proper info for installation. (I read another post that indicated that some specific questions are asked during the order process.)

    I am alightly surmising here but this is my opinion on your questions:

    No, its an installation, you will be able to add your products afterwards and while doing so specify the directories.

    Your FTP username and password
    Your MySQL username and password
    Your database name
    Your host name (usually localhost)

    Yes. You will need to divide your products into price groups and can then call each group separately. Using if, elseif, else you will be able to display different things depending on the price group.
    More here: http://www.cgi-central.net/amemberdocs/con...el/products.htm
    and here: http://www.cgi-central.net/forum/index.php...f=12&t=1503&hl=

    That may look/sound complicated but in fact is not.

    Depends on your payment processor. To make recurring payment work in PayPal for example it is necessary to fiddle with the dates a bit.

    Not sure about the other two, partly it will, I believe, depend on the payment processor. I would have no doubt that the 2012 thing will be well addressed, with aMember things generally are.

    I hope this helps a little anyway.
