Options Module that activates in Cart - Can be used for Anything!
I created module that is activated in the cart that allows the users to have their Grain crushed or not crushed. The module is custom and could be used for any application. It uses Php, Java, Sql and AJAX.
Start by adding any grain item to the cart (Please do not check out, the site is still in beta)
The Team working with the data and SKU’s wanted something independent that could be added on in the cart. This model made the most sense with the amount of products they were dealing with. It also allows for the flexibility to do cart add on’s in the future and also discounted/ associated products.
Just a follow up, if I am not mistaken, you can not modify a custom option in the cart? My module allows you to modify up to the point the item is made into an order. Also (I was told) that they would have to make a associate the custom option with each sku and not with a Category.
