I have recently reviewed Magento and I am seriously considering moving from our current solution (osCommerce based) to using Magento as the core solution.
However before such a move I would need to add some of the features we are currently using. I am going to add these “missing” features as separate posts to see what people think.
What I would really like to know is:
1. Although I have searched, does anybody know of this or a similar feature being discussed elsewhere?
2. Will the Magento team state whether this or a similar feature will be added to the core solution within the next 6 months?
3. Any comments from the community to improve my suggested feature.
Aim: To allow individual customers to discover if you will match a competitors price
Example: Take a look at http://www.scanningpens.co.uk/product/142/digiscribble and http://www.scanningpens.co.uk/price_match.php?products_id=142 - this is a live shop, please do not enter dummy requests
Suggested Solution: Add new page to front that allows a customer to ask if you will price match, hidden field in form obviously needs to include the product they were looking at. After form submitted administrator received email. Administrator simple emails/phones customer back with answer. Add to admin simple on/off switch as to whether this should be displayed on product page or not.
Many thanks in anticipation
