I need a shopping cart that will allow me to sell a item based on you are purchasing a primary item first then only allow a secondary item to add to the cart if you already selected the primary one.
For example:
I have a seminar meeting that requires that the person has to purchase the registration, before they can elect the banquet meal or meals. Meaning you can't just attend the banquet unless you are paying for registration also.
I don't want the person to be able to purchase a meal for themselves and family without adding the registration first.
And I don't want the experience to be a two part process to pay for.

I currently tried zencart but it does not seem to meet my needs.
Unless I missed it.

Any ideas?

Magento is nice, with a strong developer/support community.

Magento can be a pig. I have a site I have been unable to upgrade due to various problems. It has a steep learning curve.

However, you should be able to do what you want with it using shopping cart rules or product bundles. I'd be happy to test this for you since I have a test site installed.

Not sure if any of the Wordpress shopping cart solutions could do this.

Know this is a old post, but has anyone found a easy to use shopping cart the uses the threads user database. I am playing with Zen on my local box, but it is way overkill for the few items I need to setup for club merchandise...

Why not just use paypal and an html page?

That is what we have now smile I was looking for something the guy that manages the "store" could use to update so I don't have to lol We installed a classifieds software for users to sell things, but it does not have a shopping cart or handle orders with multiple things...

Hmm, does your cart have to support user accounts? I'm thinking you could find one that doesn't require user accounts then use an iframe or something...

It kinda does need to use the user accounts because the stuff is only available to dues paying members...
