Is Magneto the solution for this application?

I’m using a php script for a web site where visitors to the site can keyword search to find specific files. I’d like the vistors to pay for files before they can view them.

So, I’m looking for a solution that can somehow see the number searched, multiply that by a set dollar amount, send the vistitor to pay that amount, via Paypal, and return the visitor to a protected page to view the document in a unique session.

Can Magneto be used for this type of solution?
Thanks

Wow… Complicated

This is my take on this and others may disagree with reason.
The part that gets me confused is that you seem to want to charge for the searches instead of the files. That to me complicates things.

I think everything else your asking could be done with magento if you program a product for each file you want to sell.
And...make that file downloadable. (zip, pdf, etc..)

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

Yes, it is charged per search, but customers will be paying for the number of files that appear from the search, so they’re just paying for several products at once. maybe not so complicated?

Can someone help me with that?

I hope one of the Magento Pros has a good answer for you

I dought you’ll get this out-of-the-box with Magento. You will probably need to program a custom site.

Good luck in your research
