Anyone know of a PHP shopping cart with membership pricing functionality built in?
Working on a site that has a membership discount program. I have come across a couple carts that get most of the way there, but the process of adding a customer to a "pricing group" is manual. Looking for something more automated. The memberships also need to be time based with reoccurring billing.
Also, looking for something that shows: list price, nonmember price, and membership price.

Hi, Many cart have recurring billing except that they are NOT PCI compliant! No-one that is doing recurring billing can really be PCI compliant because in order to do recurring billing you have to keep credit card in your database (Yikes!) This is really bad.
If you need to protect content, then anelegant recurring billing solution that is also PCI compliant would be to use wordpress with one of those latest plugin that charges automatically the customer without having you to keep the customer credit card. You pay the plugin monthly fe and they protect you by managing the credit card info and also managing the access to the content. If you're interested I will give you the name of that plugin, I just have to look for it on files.

The Wordpress plugin would be nice since this is attached to a blog and podcast, but I have yet to see a plugin that IMO works as well and is feature rich as a stand alone shopping cart solution. The billing I was planning on coding in a rule that customers would pay for their memberships through Paypal and letting Paypal handle the reoccurring billing.
