I am researching project variables for a customer of mine and they have an unusual request. They are drop shipping for their wholesale customers on this new shopify website. Their wholesale customer is to be assigned an affiliate id by an affiliate plugin from the shopify repository. What they want to do is use that affiliate id as part of the general publics requirement to complete a purchase.
Prices and products will be public, but the affiliate id is like a key that unlocks the cart process and allows the purchase to complete.
An additional request was to have a stock timer or cart timer that decrements the inventory by 1 and has a countdown for a specified time for purchase. Since these are 1 of a kind products, the inventory decrement is in their mind essential.
