My First Fully Integrated Software Shopping Cart


I've always been super interested in point-of-sale systems and e-commerce, particularly the bits around inventory management, shopping carts and really slick sales integration pieces. I've never had a really good functional reason to mess around with any of this, though, outside of when I worked at IBM on an order management system for a client, until I wanted to start selling BatteryTech licenses online. The site, www.batterypoweredgames.com runs Drupal and I had some special needs so with just a little bit of module coding, I was able to piece together a fully automated sales and checkout system that requires a webform to be completed (EULA in my case), handles payment via paypal and provides the customer with access to everything once the payment is completed. This article will outline how I did it.
