I also want to know if Moodle can do the following.
- If a client stops paying or a monthly payment is not successful I need it to block them from accessing the course they have signed up for. (payments are tracked in my infusionsoft)
- Does Moodle have the ability to store Credit Card information that the client can update when needed? How much can we edit the clients personal homepage so that it is easy for them to update any personal info (ie credit card, username, password). I also want it to show what courses and products they have already purchased.
Also if there is a website or link that I could go to that will give me a really thorough overview of Moodles capabilities I would really appreciate it.
Moodle user profile fields are customisable, so you can let people type in credit card numbers, and have them hidden form other users. On the other hand, they would be stored in the database unencrypted, which sounds very dangerous to me. It might be better to keep billing and credit card number handling out of Moodle in the specialist software you already have.
Moodle documentation live on http://docs.moodle.org/. Also, there are Moodle Partner companies that can offer commercial support/hosting/consulting, if you choose to go that way.
But Moodle is also free, so you could just head over to the download page and grab a copy to install on your desktop computer so you can experiment with the features.
There is almost certainly no way any ecommerce system (that is connecting realtime anyway) is going to give you access to credit card data.
In the UK, Worldpay (www.worldpay.com) have Futurepay that will allow recurring billing - the question will be how to link it to your Moodle.
We produce Course Merchant (www.coursemerchant.com) that may allow you to do what you're looking for. It has a duration capability that allows a time period to be specified and then closes off enrollment to a course upon expiry.
Did you have any luck re: integrating Infusionsoft with Moodle? I am just about starting work on a project with the excat same requirement & was wondering if you are willing to exchange notes?
Look forward to receiving your reply.
Hi George et al,
I'm also looking for infusionsoft advice. Has anyone got anywhere with this? Essentially I'm after tags to be applied in IS once courses are completed etc.
