Create User-Specific Downloads with E-Commerce

Hey guys!

I am working on a site for a client where a user can log into their customer portal and pay for individual images as digital downloads that are specific to each logged-in user. Each user’s set of images will cost a different price that will be set by the seller. Is Webflow E-commerce able to do something like this?

I have tried incorporated Memberstack, Foxy and other solutions but creating user-specific content has been the consistent issue. I am able to create products and digital downloads, but not products that are dynamic for each user.

The only workaround I can think of at the moment is created a gated content section that only has one “member” which would mean the client would have to create a new section and update the member every time through an external program, which is very clunky.

I am a developer, so there is the possibility of hard-coding it or using Firebase, but the site ideally needs to be editable by the client since I can’t go in and update products or user portal permissions.

Any other thoughts or solutions you guys have?

Hey @Frances_Brown ,

Interesting question indeed. Currently, it is not yet possible to do fully dynamic pricing per user.
Without knowing too many details of your project & what factors would contribute to setting a dynamic price, you may be able to use plans & prices to creatively to solve your problem

For instance, let’s say quantity is the factor that determines dynamic pricing.
You could setup different prices under a Memberstack 2.0 plan.
For example: plan 1 - 1 digital download, plan 2 -5 digital downloads and plan 3 -10 digital downloads.
When the user goes to select their images, you can determine which price to charge them with based on the # of images that they want.
Again, this is just an example of how to approach IF quantity was a factor.

But if you can share more about the factors that go into dynamic pricing, I’m happy to try brainstorming a possible solution.

Also FYI this is expecting that you’d be using Memberstack 2.0, not 1.0. :sweat_smile:

Hey Nicolas,

Thank you so much for the response! I am using Memberstack 2.0. :slight_smile: Essentially, for the store, the user has already paid a studio fee deposit for the photographer to take his photos. Then, the user can log onto their “portal” or really any platform and choose to download as many (or none at all) of the images at the price set when they paid their deposit. The goal is to create a customer library where they can return and purchase more photos later down the road if they want. A very odd problem with no real solutions in the “no-code” atmosphere. Thank you again for taking the time to consider this!

In case you missed it, Smugmug handles this for tens of thousands of Photographers already with all the business features and without all the CDN issues that come along with Webflow.
