    E-commerce script complex

    I have looked around and ended up blank... But i was wondering, is there any scripts/ script addons that will allow me to sell virtual products (ie. Phone cards, PIN #'s etc.)

    PS: i have tried the oscommerce's "Unique Virtual Products" but no luck.

    Any and all ideas welcome

    What makes it difficult?
    What is special about selling a virtual product versus a real product that makes the software requirements different?

    As dvduval said a product is a product and most shopping cart systems can easily handle virtually any sort of item you want to sell. Whe you look at the basic you need to...

    Display the product
    Provide the means for the customer to purchase
    Send the product to the customer

    That's what shopping carts do, including OSCommerce.

    What aspect were you having trouble in understanding?

    Lemme clarify myself

    By virtual products, in this case, Pin numbers, the pin numbers will be stored in a database, so when the buyer is done, he will be able to see the pin number in his account/ email.

    That sounds like a pretty simple customization that most qualified programmers to knock out in no time. I would suggest you find a programmer. It shouldn't cost much to get this work done.
