what happened to all the people in this thread? http://forums.shopify.com/categories/1/posts/384#comment-14363
if you are using shopify and are also a dropshipper get in touch with me!
I may be interested in this. We’ve dumped our old system and are starting from scratch using Shopify. My site is CoffeeGuide.com and we sell everything from roasted beans to espresso machines. As you could imagine, roasted beans need to be shipped from the source not from a warehouse. So I have dozens of vendors, will need to get their orders to them and be notified when they’ve been shipped.
Do you think your app could help me?
p.s. In my magical wishlist, when the item ships I’d like to collect the retail amount then transfer the wholesale amount to the vendor.
mochajen, it sounds like you might be looking for a little more than simply inventory management.
How do your vendors accept orders? Is it via email, or some sort of flatfile?
It may be that you want a more custom solution to solve your needs specifically.
Feel free to email me the details of what you need and we can talk about it (bradley @ velocisenterprises . com)
We are actually doing something similar right now, where when an order comes in to our store, we then automatically process it and send it to our vendor for shipping, so it is possible.
