    Manager for "pre-paid codes"

    Hi there.
    I'm working on a music eShop, something like iTunes, but with a major difference. Instead of people paying through credit card, they will buy pre-paid codes, so basicly I need a script that is a code manager for my website.
    Something that will accept the input code from the user, check in the internal database if the code is good or no, and then grant access to a certain file to the user. And will also give me statistics.
    The only option I have seen so far is buying an eCommerce software (like X-Cart) and paying the developers to build a custom mod to meet my requirements. However, it ends up being close to 400 or 500 $, so any way to do it cheaper would be great.
    Thanks in advance

    Pd: I also need that once a code is used, the script adds the album code to the database in the row of each specific code, that way I can know how many people downloaded (and bought) each album, since I will be paying artists accordin to that.

    This is not a PHP question.
    Moving from PHP forum to Unknown Sized Project forum.
    You will be asked for further clarifications on the requirements you need in there before anyone can let you know how much it may cost.
    PHP Code:
    header('HTTP/1.1 420 Enhance Your Calm'); 
    Been gone for a few months, and haven't programmed in that long of a time. Meh, I'll wing it ;)

    Cube cart is free... at least V3 is. The customization you need doesn't seem all that extravagent, but $400 seems pretty reasonable.

    Actually I was looking for a PHP script that already does that, that is why I posted it on the PHP section.
    I already have some options from ecommerce softwares, but I wanted to see the PHP option, since I think a PHP script might be cheaper than a software that needs to be bought and modified.

    And by the way, I am from Bolivia, and considering the economic status of my country and that we are going to sell each album at about 1.5$, then 400$ only for the script is a lot of money...

    Do you already have a template + hosting + domain or will the freelancer be taking care of that as well?

    Actually this post was to find out if there was already a php script that did that, but I just realiced the thread was moved to the marketplace for some reason... -.-
    So Fou-Lu. This is not a thread to hire someone to do a custom script.
    It`s a thread to find if there is an already built solution in php for what I need.
    And yes, I have hosting, domain and the website itself is being done by a friend, we only need the mechanism to handle pre-paid codes.

    I can move this to the general web building forum instead.
    I'm not sure how much you will find. Unless its been done in the past and created as a freeware script, you may need to hire someone to code this for you (or of course code it). It wouldn't be tremendously expensive since it does not include the actual ecommerce component, but it would cost money if you need a custom. Depending on the criteria, as fumigator mentioned $400 may not be terribly unreasonable for a script to handle this. The least I would expect honestly would be $150 to do this, which would be about 2 - 3 hours of work. That would not include the actual script to get the pre-paid codes into the database either though.
