Ok, I am sooo scared to post this for fear I will get in trouble. I have heard that modifying vBulletin is in violation of its license. I am a programmer and am taking a "directed study" course this semester. I have proposed make a mod to an open source program called www.zen-cart.com. This is a fully-functional shopping cart system. It's great! The only problem is that my users of photopost and vBulletin have to re-register in the store. I find this a slight nusance and would like to change this. So, that is my proposal. Let me know if I am breaking rules as I am going to host my beta/trial version of the software on a site other than the working one I have now. I don't want to mess up my ecommerce site that has finally started picking up. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Ya, I was looking at that Zen Cart too. It looks amazing and simple to use with good support. Downside, no VB integration.

You read over the license for vB. Or open a support ticket if you would like help understanding it. You won't get in trouble.

Well, that is what I am going to try and write. We'll see. I use Zen-cart as my shopping cart and love it. Here's my store. I have a gallery and forum and they use the same profile information but the store requires re-registration. I hate that! So, we'll see how it comes out.

BTW, if you want to try how it works, just get one of the freebies. Just don't opt for a newsletter!

Where is X-Cart?

And when do you plan to get the ZenCart integrated with vB?

The problem is I developed the current version for my own use, so I didn't took care for adding shipping and taxes. I'm planing to add them for a future release.

It's a 100% vbCart, but for selling downloadable products (no shipping calculations, no taxes calculations). Some of its fatures:
- Unlimited categories
- Unlimited subcategories
- Special offers
- Recommentation list below each product
- Also bought list below each product
- PayPal and 2CO payment gateways
- Info boxes with: Best seller, Upcoming products, Just released products (updated per category).

Would it work like this?

I really am in dire need of a shopping cart system that would it work when someone pays to have lessons with one of several instructors, it pm's the admin (me), the instructor and the person that pays for the lessons they will get a private message automatically sent?

I will have like 5 instructors at first, but want to be able to add or remove them. I also want all of the payments to work through paypal.

Don't underestimate it's value in features because it's a mod for vB. Believe me it has many great features. eg You can setup a special usergroup which will have access to a specific forum (let's say instructor's forum). In every product that you add (lesson in your case) you can setup in which usergroup the buyer will be assigned if he buys that product.
Auto emails are sending to buyer after a successful payment with instruction on how to download his product.

I don't want to change usergroups though. Because the person won't be paying for some constant lessons, they'll be paying for one time 30 minute or 60 minute sessions. I just want members to be able to buy lessons from people in the instructors usergroup. And for each party to be contacted after payment has been sent to me (the admin) I will then pay the instructor later.

When will this be done though? Because this is something that I need to implement... like 3 days ago. I'm holding off on a major announcement for this because I can't find the right shopping cart system.

Also, if this does not work the way I want it to can I get a refund?

I would be interested in purchasing, but it would have to support Inventory, and Shipping costs.
