    Pseudo payment gateway for charge-on-delivery (COD) items?


    Hi all!

    My experience:
    I'm a web designer, been freelancing full-time for 3 years.

    The situation:
    I have a client with a brick&morter dessert shop. Via her website, she wants to sell ~30 different items, each with different (selectable) flavors. For example: the Truffles page has a drop-down menu for the flavors coffee, cherry, and hazelnut.

    The kicker:
    Client does not want to accept payments online. No credit cards, no SSL, not even Paypal payments. The only way client accepts payment is by self-delivering her products and charging on delivery.

    Client essentially needs:
    A CMS (or Paypal integration perhaps? is there a way of doing this?) which emails my client when an order is placed -- with the items, quantities, and customer information. The CMS should also sends a confirmation email to her customer. A receipt or unique transaction ID is not necessary.

    Client essentially needs a way of collecting orders for "free" products.



    So...
    What are your ideas, fellow developers? Thanks for helping a comrade out...

    Any server side language will allow you to generate and send an E-Mail pretty easily. You don't need a framework or an external service to do this.

    PHP, ASP, didn't matter. Decided to go with OpenCart. I've got it installed alongside Wordpress with no problems.
