I am potentially interested in creating a website that sells translations. I'd be curious to hear from you whether you think a feature like the following could be implemented on a Shopify website: https://www.translate.com/order
So the idea is that clients can put in a text into the text box and the order form automatically counts the number of words and gives back a price for it. To add to that, if there is a way to even count words when clients aIs that possible within Shopify?
Sound like an interesting idea, it's possible to do so with a little bit coding if you wanna achieve the exact feature as your mentioned example. As you need to create a product in Shopify before checking out (without using draft order), so you need to create a "product" base on the word count every time, the flow could be like,
2. Create an endpoint to dynamically create product with Shopify admin API, and call every time when user in the frontend submitting the word count, and then redirect user back to the checkout page.
Otherwise, for another option with less coding, could be creating different Products with the range of word count like 0 - 500, 500 - 1000, 1000 - 1500 etc, and allow users to pick the package of what they want.
Just some random thought.
