How to create an online ordering system?

Get help using Construct 3!

Hello everyone,

Maybe a strange question I have here but I am thinking about making an online ordering system with Construct 3. Nothing to do with games.

In this online ordering system, no secure payments or any payments have to take place. It is only intended to register orders and then bundle them until a minimum order amount of 150 euro is reached. When this amount is reached the bundled order is actually placed.

The intention is that all employees can use this system on computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone. Therefore a central SQLite database needs to be created on a webhosting.

The whole solution will be hosted on a website space. From everywhere, people can register their orders.

For this solution to work, I need text fields, listboxes, radio buttons, checkboxes and OK, Save and Cancel buttons. Also saving to a permanent database somewhere on a remote website, should be possible.

What do you think, is this possible with Construct 3 and how to accomplish this? There is very little or no information found on this subject. I think this can be done in Construct 3 but I am not sure.

Any ideas are very much welcome and appreciated.

Have a nice day.

Chris

I have made system that allows my trivia app to speak to a MySQL database by pushing through PHP. My suggestion would be to spend a little time writing php and you can use the AJAX plugin to send and receive information to your servers. Your best bet is using AJAX plugin

Thank you for your reply which is highly appreciated.

I already expected that without a second language (PHP), Construct 3 cannot access a database on a server directly. Therefore I will look into a PHP solution to let Construct 3 accessing a remote database.

Have a nice day.
