    Good Day

    I am battling with a client request, and was wondering to what extend the range of Woocommerce plugins may assist me in overcoming some of the challenges.

    I need the following functionality:

    – Submit information via a frontend form
    – Form information to be displayed on the website as a listing
    – Hide the Phone Nr and the E-mail address that was supplied in the listing.
    – Make the Phone Nr and the E-mail visible to the user AFTER payment.
    – Only allow a max of 3 interested people to purchase the contact details per listing.
    – Send out an email to all the relevant members based on Location and Type of the listing.

    In order to make sense requirements, please see the following scenario as supplied by the client.



    – I need the following solution on WordPress.
    – Any Elementor friendly theme can be used.
    – South African currency (ZAR) friendly payment gateway like PayFast and OZOW.

    The system defines 2 sections – The Professional and The Customer.

    Susan is a Customer in need of a Plumber (Professional). She access the website and is able to fill in a form stating her:

    – Name
    – Surname
    – City
    – Category (Dropdown list of predefined categories)
    – Details description of her problem
    – Size of project (small, medium, large)
    – Telephone Number
    – Email address.

    When Susan submit the form, it will be placed on the system as a Listing. However, Susan’s contact details must be hidden.

    The system must send out an email to all the people registered on the system as a Professional, based on the category and the location supplied by Susan, notifying them that a NEW BUSINESS LEAD was submitted.

    In order for the Plumber (The Professional) to be able to see Susan’s contact details, he must purchase credits.


    1 Credit = R25

    Small project = 2 x credits.
    Medium project = 5 x credits
    Large project = 10 x credits

    – After being able to see the contact details, the Professional will be able to contact Susan by way of email and / or telephone, in order to send her a quotation / arrange for an onsite meeting.

    Contact details of any listing may only be sold to a max of 3 interested Professionals in order not to flood Susan with proposals

    Therefore, The system is ONLY selling CONTACT DETAILS (Business Lead) to a max of 3 interested Professionals per listing).

    The system does not get involved in anything beyond this point.
    There is no guarantee that when the Professional purchase the credits in order to see Susan’s contact details, that he will be appointed. That only gives you the opportunity to present Susan with a quotation.

    Extra Info

    In order to supply The Customer with good quality quotes, the Professional must upload an ID, business documentation, and proof of residence during registration. This is just a small attempt to root out a fly by night individual.

    Additionally, the Professional must be able to list his own business profile on the system as well. [Paid listing plans based on a time period.]
