Can Magento keep the cart items separate for each website under one Admin panel?

Hello, I’m am so relieved at finding Magento. I’ve been looking for a solution like this for a long time. But I do have one concern. I’m a dropshipper and I need to keep the cart items separate for each website due to the shipping costs. You see, if the cart pulls items across three websites, I would have to cover the shipping cost from two separate companies and the customer would cover costs from one company. That would eat into my profit considerably.

In other words, I plan to have one website for one company’s products. Customers would not be able to transfer their cart items to the other websites. I understand that the stores could share the cart and this would be fine because items would all come fromt the same company.

Let me know if I haven’t been clear in this question.

You can accomplish this with creating multiple websites (not stores).  Multiple stores within a website will share the same cart but multiple websites will not.

What if setting them up as websites is not an option?
