We are managing schools across multiple locations. We have designed a system where we allocate token currency to each school to make purchases from our store. We have a price list with prices in token currency enabling us to manipulate prices. This lets us charge an artificially inflated amount for non-perishable items encouraging schools to preserve items that do not need to be replaced.
We are currently doing this manually.
- A school sends its requisition
- We calculate the total tokens to be charged
- If the school has enough tokens available, the token amount is deducted from its balance.
- The order is shipped.
We want to automate this process. We would like have an online store face which lists items available in our inventory. The token prices should be listed. Since the tokens are abstract internal currency, we want to be able to set a balance for each school account which would be subsequently deducted for every purchase made. The schools should be able to see their available token balance in real time.
Is there anyway to do this without spending much money on custom made software or hiring a professional?
