I would sincerely appreciate if a virtuemart expert could take a look at my site and advise on the following. The project budget is very small and I am happy to do the work myself if somebody could simply advise me. What I want is somebody to debug my web store so that it works the way I want it. Outlined below are the features I would like:
(1): what I want is for a customer to place an order on the fly i.e. without having to confirm their email address etc. So when they add a product to the cart, they can click 'view cart' and click 'checkout'. Upon checkout, it asks for their email address and a password. However, the user is NOT required to confirm this email address. They are swiftly moved on to the 'enter billing and shipping info' screen. Upon checkout, the Purchase Order/Invoice is sent to their email address.
(2): For all future orders, the user can login with their email address and password via a link on the site titled 'view my account' - for some reason, I don't have that link currently.
(3): I have a dedicated SSL [GeoTRUST] which currently covers the entire website. I want to remove this so that the SSL works ONLY for the checkout stages of the order i.e. when a customer clicks checkout, the subsequent pages are all secure. If its possible, maybe even have the 'view my account' pages secure too.
(4): I want to customize the confirmation email the customer receives upon placing an order. I use a Paypal Payments PRO module from Ecom-Solutions so I'm not sure if this bit will be affected by the component.
Budget is very very small for this project - but I can guarantee further projects in the form of template mods and custom components etc. Need somebody very reliable, honest and someone who can explain to me why and how the above solutions are to be implemented. I am using virtuemart [url removed, login to view] and Joomla 1.012. Communication via Skype or MSN.
Your assistance will be highly appreciated.
