I know Ive seen several post in here about having re-occurring payments and most have a legit claim. But my request would be centered not around re-occurring payments but options for customers to pay several times under the one payment option for One item.
To better explain:
Your selling a Product for $30.00 and your customer wants to make payments on it like layaway,( 3x$10.00 ), before actually shipping the product to them all payments need to be processed and validated, and each payment has a time value so if a minimum payment wasnt processed within that time frame the Shop owner could cancel the layaway and a check be sent to the customer for a full refund.
Now in the Customers dashboard would have a payment history for when they last made a payment and when the next one is due, if a payment is due then an automatic email will be sent to notify them that a payment is due within a certain date.
Am I to far out there?Or does anyone understand what Im getting at?
This way you could stay within the PCI compliency under the one payment method and not store CC info.
