Hi,

I hope someone can help me. I’m new to Magento, but I do have PHP development experience. Initally I did plan to do all the development of my website myself, but that would probably take years. However, before I start something I can’t finish I wanted to know if I will be able to achieve the following must haves on my website.

1) Will I be able to incorporate the functionality for suppliers to enter their own products onto the system, without being able to look at other suppliers details. And would I be able to limit them to having a maximum of say 10 products. Can I provide them with an interface I have configured myself.

2)If 1 is possible then is there a limit to the number of suppliers I can allow to access the system

3)Is there a way that I can display the shopping basket broken down by each supplier and their delivery charges, even though the customer will only pay once

4) Is there a way that once I have received payment from the customer, that I can integrate a process that will forward payments onto each supplier automatically?

5)I would also like to allow each supplier to update customers order status.

6)I would also like to add a blog and forum to the site.  How easy is it to incorporate?

7) I want to use my own template, is this easy to incorporate, do I just add in my own HTML and CSS files

8) And lastly, how do I set up a test environment on my own laptop, which runs Windows XP is this possible at all?

I know I’ve asked quite a few questions, but I am doing so much research that it is getting a bit overwhelming, but I am up for the challenge and if anyone can just point me in the right direction or a least let me know if what I want to do will be possible that would be great.

I can’t wait to get into this, but it would help to know if what I want is possible

Thank you in advance

Betty

Joomla and Virtuemart

Maybe you are at the wrong forum wink But Magento is light years ahead of Virtuemart…

To answer your questions, yes everything is possible. But I don’t think your capable to get it done. E.g. to achieve #1, #2, #3 you need extensive knowledge of Magento. Of course you can learn it but I don’t think is realistic to do this with your current knowledge(I guess it based on your questions) within a limited time.
