How can I add a one-time x amount in y after a specified time automatically?

Recommended Posts

Let's say I am buying a share for $10.

If I sell the share on the same day BEFORE 3:30PM, it will be sold for $10, but if I keep the share past 3:30PM, I want the code to automatically add $1 (Taxes and such) once in the the price of the share in database, after that no matter how many days pass by, the price will remain the same.

 

I've thought about CRON jobs, but I have no idea how to make/use them or set them up.

 

Any direction or help is appreciated.

You don't have to change anything. Whatever your code is that looks up the amount, update it so that it takes the time into account and adds $1 if it's after 3:30.

So, if I understand that right, when the page loads, (refreshes) it checks the time and if the time is past the specified time, it adds the amount?

Yeah. It's a distinction between an original amount and an effective amount. It's $10 originally and +$1 for the time-based fee thing I don't know for an effective amount of $11.

Now, this should all be handled in a single place, so it's not like the page itself is doing this work, but yes: the code starts with the original $10 and then recognizes that it should +$1 because of the time.
