    I was thinking of getting a sort of user membership/credit backend system done. I think most of these types of things are dome predominantly in php?


    I would basically create an account for a user (email/password), They login to their account and they can purchase "credits" with paypal, once paid they would automatically receive their credits, and have the ability to spend them on whatever i am selling. I would have the ability to alter what the ratio of credits : services is, on the fly. I would also have my admin panel that would show all "orders" in my required format so that i can work on them. That would be the main gist of it, with various other functionalities implemented.

    I'm not sure what such a task would be "called" formally, but its along the lines of what i'd be interested in. Any ideas on how much this sort of script would cost, and how long it'd take?

    Thanks.

    I am sure that such "paypal to credit" script could be done for about $100. Its not that hard.

    Yeah i think so too. Although what i had in mind would be more involved than that, looks like a freelancer would be the best option. Now where to find one

    I am sure, that you would find someone here too. There is a section for that.
    Or you can try oDesk, freelancer.c0m ... there are a lot of similar sites.

    There are quite a few of us here who do freelance work ;)

    My recommendation is don't go for the cheapest. Otherwise a day or two later you'll get a reply saying they can't do it.

    But its going through paypal, not directly through my site, so why would i need an SSL cert? I thought it would be no different from having one of those pay now buttons.

    Yeah, sorry about that. You're right. I was thinking of something else entirely. Though I would still suggest an SSL cert. The cost of an SSL cert ($50) is minor compared to the amount of customers you would lose if you don't have one.

    I am writing something up in php at the moment, but it is pissing me off!
    Will keep an eye on this thread to see if anyone gives a good suggestion.

    If you find something that needs modification, PM me, i might be able to do it, or split the cost of hireing someone if the finished product would meet both our requirements
