No more so than they would if they used say if they used this bit of html as it is fairly non-descript. There site has a similar layout but I've also seen that laytout in sites that predate that script you cite.

Code: Select all

currently it is for the webmaster only. we are planning to add the functionality to allow members to post their products too.

In fact you can check our live site at http://www.loewen.com.sg/singapore , you will see that our members can add their own second hand products and house/room to rent. :)

and for insta store script, mine is nothing to do with that.

seems allow members to add stuff is more attracting. :)

For services, I think you can add them as products, and set the delivery fee as zero.

I have some idea to add the Member Add Products functionality, I state below, everybody is welcomed to discuss so that we can get better solution. :)

1. Admin set which GDGroup members can add their own products.
2. Admin set at membership table, how many a member can upload their products a time.
3. Admin set how much to charge the member for operating cost
4. Once other members (buyer) )buy their products, money is transfered to admin's account first, and add that money into the seller's money account's Money_wait.
5. buyer can update his consumption records' status to "Product Delivered", once this status is set, money freezed in seller's Money_wait will be moved to seller's Money_remaining
6. If buyer doesnot update that status for seller, seller can require the buyer to do so, if buyer doesnot update the status and buyer doesnot complain either for 3 weeks or so, the money in Money_wait will be automatically moved into seller's Money_remaining
7. seller can withdraw money to their paypal account.
8. may add buyer rate seller feature to let better seller have better ratings.

Any other ideas? let us discuss to get a better and simpler solution

Hello,

Could you please change your MODs version number as outlined in MOD Development forum rules section 2. Your MOD as being in development requires a development version number as stated in the phpBB versioning scheme.

For example if your MOD is currently displaying v1.0.0, you can change it to 0.1.0 or 1.1.0, depending on your feelings of it's development status. Even minor version numbers (y of x.y.z) are reserved for release versions. If you believe your MOD is of a quality that deserves a release version, please do not hesitate to submit your MOD to the phpBB.com MODDB (MOD release database) for validation pending release.

Thank you,
The phpBB MOD Team

I would like the products to be downloads that a person can purchase. For instance, I would like to make an ebook as pdf, attach it to the product and if a person makes the purchase they can download the ebook. Is it possible to add purchaseable downloads?
