Product Customization Design
Summary: Allow an end user to select product (up to 10 products), select color, select special feature (special service, rush order), select or upload multiple artworks, a special instruction field, quantity, calculate estimated total cost, and submit the design (uploaded artwork, design, color code defined) to the administrator for quote/confirmation. The administrator have a backend system (MySQL or MSSQL)that generate a confirmation number for the saved design and ability to change quantity, update pricing, or change feature to reflect the actual pricing (if the end user messed up). The system will link to a UPS rate tool to determine the actual shipping cost with the determined total product weight. The customer will receive an email with the link to either back to the design site, enter in the confirmation number to complete the order with payment gateway linked to Payflow Pro, or a link directly to the payment gateway to pay for the order, and after payment the order will be marked as Paid.
The system must consist of the option to override online payment if we choose not to use it for specific order, instead an end user may pay by mail-in checks or net 30 days. (Mark as paid option)
