My client is wanting to avoid direct sales and instead process every order through a sales rep.
The sales rep will enter the order in the site, submit it and then it will be sent to the sales director.
The sales director will then follow-up with the customer to verify the order and to take the payment.
The sales director would then send an email to the customer with a link for payment and/or give the customer the address for mailing their payment once everything has been verified.
I recommended PayPal or a similar service to avoid issues with security and such. While taking payment through PayPal is no big deal at the time of purchase, there doesn’t seem to be any way to re-process the order and send it to PayPal later on to get the email/invoice generated.
The only thing I can think of is to simply recreate the invoice in PayPal if that’s how the customer prefers to pay or just simply send an email requesting payment from PayPal.
Any other thoughts or ideas?
