I have a client who is interested in running her site like this:
- People buy "credits" on the site, which are then used to list items on the site (1 credit = 1 item)
- Each item should be manageable separately; that is, customers should be able to adjust billing info and billing frequency for each item
To remove the conceptual piece: it's a site where people can list properties for rent. You buy credits, then turn those credits into listings.
My thought was to treat each credit as a separate subscription. I'd then have to do some coding wizardry to get the website we're building to tie a property listing to a specific subscription, so customers can edit each property (billing info, frequency, etc.) separately.
I have 2 questions related to this setup:
- Is it possible to process multiple subscriptions like this in a single checkout? I assume so and that FoxyCart would just treat each subscription as starting at the same time and having the same frequency.
- Is there any reason I couldn't relate data in my website (an individual property listing) with a FoxyCart subscription? I assume I could use the transaction ID from the datafeed or some other unique identifier to do this.
Thanks for your time and feedback.
