I am looking for a unique shopping cart solution, and am hoping someone can recommend a component that fits.
I need a cart for a classified ads site that does not store existing products from the database as most do, because there are no products, hence no Product ID (which seems to be the quintessential field found in most carts).
The user generates their advertisement using an editor, and the document is sent into a pricing engine and a price is returned based on their use of word count, text style, and images. So there's not a product catalog, just a document and a price (calculated
by a service), maybe a few other properties to appear later.
Normally I would build a custom cart but we are on an extremely short timeline, so I am hoping there is already a cart designed to accept dynamically generated objects?
