-- We’re testing out Megento as a possible replacement for our current cart and we need the following functionality. I don’t see the following features available in Magento. Please advise if they are. If not we are looking for someone to quote them (hopefully as an extension module) for us as they are show stoppers for converting to Magento.

INVENTORY
Ability to track inventory by attribute, i.e. We have 7 Blue blankets and 9 Red blankets.

SHIPPING
Ability to set Shipping Origin (Zip) by product. We have some products on-hand and will ship from zip code 11111 we have other products that are drop shipped from say zip code 22222. We need to be able to set the origin zip code for a product and have it calculate shipping based on that.

Ability to limit the shipping methods by product. For products we have on-hand we might offer US Postal (USPS) but from some drop shipped items they might be shipped by UPS.

The shipping calculations need to bundle by origin zip code. So if there are two products: Product A (1 LB) and Product B (2 LB) and those are both being shipped from zip code 11111, then the shipping weight is 3 LBs.

Here’s an example order:
Order #1
- Product A, 1 LB, Ships from 11111
- Product B, 2 LB, Ships from 11111
- Product C, 1 LB, Ships from 22222

- Quick update: we’ve figured out the inventory part. But believe we still need help with the shipping portions.

I hate when people figure stuff out and don’t share it. I am trying to figure out how to base inventory on an attribute “our product number” rather than sky because our sky is our productnumber-suffix for multi-listing/seo purposes.
