[teknoids] Drupal and Ubercart for e-commerce

We’ve been working with Ubercart, which includes a “Roles” module for assigning roles with expiration dates to users. Drupal Commerce may be an alternative, although it appears to be more of a framework than an out-of-the-box solution.

I will be watching this with interest, because I am in the beginning stages of a very similar project involving an annual subscription to restricted content.  What module are you using to allow purchase of a user role?

I’m working on a Drupal site where we’re selling user roles that permit access to restricted content. We’ve been trying to use Ubercart to allow unauthenticated users to select the role they want, hop out to Paypal to pay, and then come back to the site and get started.

However, in our testing none of the orders ever get to completion. We’re using the PayPal sandbox, and as far as we can tell it’s configured correctly. A less pressing problem is that the way Ubercart passes users back to our site is inelegant. It would require users to fill out the user registration form separately from the e-commerce process.

Anybody have advice on integrating Ubercart, PayPal, and Drupal? We’re open to other approaches as well.

PS: I’m happy to have this conversation in the #drupal channel on the Teknoids Slack site. I’ll keep an eye out in case anyone responds over there.
