I am interested in having an extension for Magento with the details and features listed below. The goal is to offer a photographic equipment rental service online through my magento store. Although this is what I would like I know and understand the complexities associated with creating a magento extension with these complexities. I would also consider having a separate site to facilitate this feature if the Magento extension is more work than its worth. In your bid please let me know which approach you would like to take.
Pay Per Rentals
• Flexible pricing models. You can enter any number of pricing periods you want based on quantity and time period. Time periods are: minute,
hour, day, week, month, or year. For example you could have a price for a 2 hour rental, 1 day rental, 3 day rental, 2 week rental, etc. The inbetween pricing is pro-rated.
• Rental inventory is automatically assigned when a customer places an order and it's invoiced
• Admin: send and return rentals page. Rentals can be returned by date, order, or serial number. Tracking number can be assigned for shipping.
• NEW - bundles and packages. Offer multiple products together for rent or sell and correctly manage inventory checking for the entire bundle. For example rent together a camera with a tripod and memory cards, or a video game system with games.
• Blockout dates - disallow certain dates from being rented
• Deposits - accept a certain amount as as deposit for a product. This amount can be authorized only to the credit card
• Report by serial number - view a page showing where each serial number is if you track by serial number
