Just a wee bit of brainstorming here with a new project. * The product is information and will change dynamically for each/every customer and instance. * The customer will choose from an a-la-carte list then an algorithm will be applied to calculate the charge. * He/she go through the checkout and pays. * Customer will get access to the downloadable output. Payment options - the client would prefer using a true payment gateway and offer regular choices as opposed to forcing the customer to register with a use PayPal. Perhaps authorize.net or www.cdgcommerce.com? I will use Joomla CMS for the website which gives access to Virtuemart eCommerce. Regardless whether it is VM or PayPal, I'm sure that I can dynamically (on the fly) create a product as soon as the customer agrees to make the purchase then take that makeshift product through the cart process and eventually to the payment Gateway. Although a product/SKU is created I can probably keep it hidden from public view by not providing access via a search, product list, category tree, etc. Does this sound like a reasonable route with a product that dynamically changes?
