Online Store Payment with Online Booking Confirmation

Let say somebody is creating a website where people book for transportation online. Now, these people also want people to pay for the booking as a final confirmation for the booking.

So, if a form was created, how does one go about linking the online store widget with the form?

So to run through an example, a guy want to book a taxi from a New York airport to his sisters house. He fills out details of when he wants the taxi and all of the other information needed to fill out. Now, he also has to pay for this service online to confirm the booking.

When the information is filled out, he is then prompted to pay. And, once he pays the confirmation booking is sent the company.

Is that possible with all that Yola provides?

Hi Ryan,

The thing that I don't think would be easy to calculate is the distance between pickup point and the drop-off point and use this to calculate the fare price. This is really specialised stuff. I have seen this for various online bookings of services but not with the Online Store. There are address point to point programs that calculate distance and a relatively recent one is Google Maps. You would need to play with their API to somehow get it to talk with another facility but I think possible at some level. Not with the Online Store.

Having said that if you wanted to go with another step and introduce an operator before calculating and providing an invoice then that could be done.

I still think that there may be other online facilities for this. It would require a search and working through your options maybe you will be lucky and find an ideal facility for this.
