View Full Version : Printing Company looking for Web-based Price Quote Generator

09-12-2006, 10:07 PM
I am wondering if anyone knows of any web-based software capable of generating a price quote for potential customers, based on product type, quantity, shipping and other specifics (which we would be able to define).

If there is no such software, does anyone know how to created a program like this? Does anyone know of any programmers who could possibly create something like this?

I've seen something almost identitical to what we are looking for, but have looked through the page source and found the coding to be a little beyond my scope of knowledge. Here is a link to what we want:


The only difference is that we would like the type of product (in this case, "business cards") included within the form along with the already existing fields and pull-downs. This site has a separate pull-down in the top right corner of the page.

Your help in this matter would be greatly appreciated!

That example is all done in JavaScript; an experienced JavaScript programmer should have little or no trouble putting together something like that to your taste.

That's what I thought...do you know of any Javascript programmers with websites who are easy to work with and have decent prices? There's not really any reliable programmers where I live (Bemidji, MN) and I would try to do it myself, but I'm not yet comfortable enough with my Javascript skills.

You could place a post in the Job Offers & Requests (http://www.codingforums.com) forum and ask for a quote there; I'm fairly sure these forums have a number of experienced scripters as members.

your cheapest bet is probably a freelancer, try getafreelancer.com, or search "freelance programming" in a search engine.
