Hi!

We have a prospective client that is looking for some heavy duty features in a shopping cart/ecommerce site. I really want to use Exchange but would appreciate any and all feedback on whether or not these particular features are feasible, require intense programming or if there are workarounds that anyone may know of.  I hate to say that "Woo" word and would really prefer Exchange but here's the list:
  • Upsell: If a website visitor purchases an item, offer them the option of purchasing a part for that item or something else in the cart that relates (related content?)
  • Comparison Capability: If a website visitor is interested in purchasing a product, this functionality would show them all similar products available to them, the features of each, including pricing, so that they could compare the products and choose the one that best fit their needs. (similar to Dell or a car dealer?)
I did see in the Exchange Roadmap that related products may be coming soon but my client has a short deadline (2 months for completion) so any insight is appreciated.

Just holding out hope ;0)

Hi Susi,

Unfortunately, these aren't currently options in Exchange.  As you said, related content is a feature request on the Exchange Roadmap (and I've added the Comparison Capability as a feature request there as well), but I don't have a timeline for if/when this would be added.

You are, of course, welcome to customize Exchange however you need in order to accomplish what you're needing.  I'm not sure how "intense" this would be.  :)  If you find it is too intense for you, we do have some teams we can recommend to help you out.  Just let us know if you are interested in that information.  

Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Thanks,

Elise

Hi Elise,

Thanks - pretty much what I figured you'd say :)  Yes, I would be interested in that info as I'd rather go with a pro. This is a big account.  You can post or email me directly at sschuele@myvirtualproject.com.  

Thanks again!
Susi
