This project is to create an affiliate module for an existing osCommerce store. The affiliate program is similar to that offered by [url removed, login to view] - affiliates would have a subdomain on the main site which pulls products from an existing database and offers them for sale. Subdomains must be created on the fly for each affiliate and accessible from within the server's Plesk control panel. Each subdomain must be customizable by the affiliate to some extent - basic color scheme and logo, one banner add, several links - to integrate with the affiliate's existing website. All products and pricing will be set in the main store database. The system should use a central set of files to allow for quick changes and additions to layout. The affiliate system should integrate with the main store's admin screens, ideally using the existing osCommerce affiliate module. All programming should be done using PHP, HTML, CSS and Java - no CGI or ASP.
Target site is Linux based using Plesk 7.x - it is desirable that the project be presented in the form of a complete oscommerce style contribution to be folded into a standard osCommerce 2.2 MS2 distribution. Target site currently has OSC Affiliate [url removed, login to view] (of 27 June 2004) installed. Plesk documentation is available.
