Are there any of the Trademe sand shoe brigade on here ? ones that will admit to it :)

My question will be On pass the parcel I can use my trademe name and password to login

If I wanted to put a customers transaction details online under lock and key would I be able to use the same system for the customer to access the details?

would it cost a zillion dollars to make happen?

What you are looking for is the TradeMe API

http://developer.trademe.co.nz/

specifically, the API uses OAuth to provide authentication.

mattwnz: What are the trademe sand shoe brigade? I don't understand the term.


You have made me wonder if I have been using the wrong term for 40 years and no one has ever questioned it !

I thought the sand shoe brigade refereed to the real hardcore programmers from the early days who had long hair, wore unfashionable clothes, but were geniuses and yes, wore "sand shoes"

 

sandshoe

 

(ˈsændˌʃuː)

Thank you I have joined the forum and posted the following request

 

So I want to be able to allow customers to use their trademe login details to access a WordPress site that will show their transactions with me as a seller. Particularly my receipt of their funds and my dispatch of the goods

 

Before I invest the next week trying to figure out ,implement and get working a trade me API, is the option doable?

Yes you could write code to access the API and pull that information.

It's not a trivial task, but it's not hopelessly complicated either. 

Since Wordpress is written in PHP, you should start your journey with the PHP Bindings and the demo code in there, the link to which you'll find in the API forums.

Wordpress has these wonderful things called plugins I wonder if it would be more prudent to get someone to write a plugin. It must be possible as facebook twitter etc do it. Mind you both of them have an endless supply of money so anything is possible.
By the way you comment on th eprocess I am guessing its about a 1-2 hour job for somone who knows what they are doing
I usually work on a formula 1 hour by programmer 10 hours me.

Hmmmmm

If I bought something and the store wanted me to grant access to my trademe account inorder to view details of the transaction I would tell them to GTFO.

The API is for services that provide service for the user to manage their trademe account. Not for you to log people into your systems.

No different to other syndicated logins, Facebook, Google, etc...

Naturally, one should always provide a non-syndicated login method as well.

Looks doable, they have OAuth authentification for apps, which means clients will not have to put their login/passwords on your web-site. During login process they will be redirected to trademe, approve access for your website, and afterwards  returned back to your website as logged in users. 

I don't have experience with exactly trademe, but worked with both wordpress and OAuth (tiwtter and google flavours). Can look closer to trademe API and drop you estimations if still interested.

Nope! I refuse to be goaded into taking the bait! I am being a responsible calm geekzone user!

so

The problem I have is that when a person buys from me I send them all correspondence by email. If they are paranoid and have aggresive spam filters they dont get the emails so they don't know whats happening.

The solution  is having the ability to allow the customer to log into a site where they can see the transactions of "i have received payment" "I have sent the goods" etc

I see this as no diffrent to the access that goes with pass the parcel or bidbud they get your info you could say.

but as far as i understand I don't get their info. Goes through some third part oauthh thingy beyond my knowledge.

I am just trying to keep the customer happy

I am happy to look at cost ideas

Would be great in a plugin as then there is the option to recuperate the cost of production

What bait? It's a genuine concern. If I was a customer and a seller direct me to some site to put in my TM details there is no way I would be doing that.

If your problem is the reputation of the email address you're using, maybe you're better to address that issue.

It would be the same login procedure as Bidbud and Pass the parcel already use

What email address are you talking about that I need to address?

and Do you use bidbud or pass the parcel as they both use the tm login
