Basically, Magento needs a section in the administration for vendors. When you add a new vendor, you can specifiy the following information:

These only apply to the products in the cart that use this vendor. Products can only be given ONE and only ONE vendor.

Handling Fee (%, Per Product, Flat Rate)
Shipping (%, Per Product (for each product in cart with this vendor), Flat Rate)
Shipping Address

This is the information I can see from the start that should be required for the vendor module. I would like people to build a list of what else should be included!

I Agree, but the Vendor module should be divided into 2 sections(Vendor Profile and Vendor Products) & a custom shipping method should be developed along side it:

Vendor Profile -
- Vendor Name
- Vendor Address
- Vendor Phone
- Vendor Fax
- Vendor Unique Number
- Vendor Contact
- Vendor Email

Vendor Products (Associations through category tree) -
- Ship Method by Product (ie. Custom, UPS Ground, 2Day Air, 3Day, DHL etc...)
-Ship Handling Fee By Product when Custom is selected (Custom rate unique to product, Rate Table, Flat Rate)

Considerations:

Shipping logic would need to be added and should be a part of custom shipping method module.

Vendor Name & Number should appear on Invoice.
The invoices should be split up by Vendor and the specific invoices should be forwarded to Vendor’s Email.

This does not seem like an easy task but I’m available to help in anyway I can.  These modules would be a heaven send to companies who drop ship.

PM me if anyone would like to collaborate to create this module.

That’s good news, I’m interested in how it turns out. In my situation, I’m looking for something like amazon where you can find a Sony TV and choose from a number of vendors to buy it from, but I’m sure your module will be useful to me as well.

I have completed my module. Currently is only works for UPS but it is not too hard to integrate for other carriers. I will package my extension soon.

I have finished my module - however, I am stuck with the packaging process. I was required to edit the UPS.php file to complete my module - how do I make it so the UPS.php file is unedited and I “overload” the file?
