This is a nice mod for people who sell or show any kind of products over the internet. It is designed to make it easy for users to view and purchase products, and for admins to easily update what products are shown, and information about the products.. etc..

[x]Show price of product
[x]Show Number of product in Stock

Idea

I have an idea. How about allowing each user to post their own items for sale.

That sounds good, however I am designing this mainly for admins of sites who sell products, and are looking for a easy way to do it dynamically.

But your idea is very good, and it would certainly add a lot to this. What I think I will do is make it so you can toggle the abilty for users to post products from the admin control panel.

Also, that might come in handy if you had a forum based on a game like Diablo 2, users could easily post items they are trying to trade/sell, without having to sort thru a messy trading forum.

I also had a good idea? How about you intergrate this with the point mod, so some items can be sold for forum money. Like templates. They pay say 500 points then it allows them to download it. Sound like a good idea?

Sounds like a good thing to add in a future version.
I am trying to get the basic features working flawlessly before I will try and add anything like this

So this is going to be a full shopping cart + catalog system?

Do you have any ideas what payment gateways you will support?

It will be more of an item cataloguing system than a shopping cart. Admin will be able to easily add, remove, and edit products they have for sale, easily display a picture of the product if it is available, and set up prices and etc. Users will be able to view the list of products, and see details about the products, and if they choose too, order it.

I havent decided for sure about payment gateways, there are several different ideas and things I am considering
