E-commerce website that works like a multi-physical shops gateway

Hi all,
i would like to cover following requirement with magento: create an e-commerce website where customers can buy products offered by different physical store in different location.

In detail:
1) One website/store where customers are able to see all products.
2) Products are offered from different shop in different location (physical shops)
3) Customer can add in the same cart products offered by different physical shops
4) during checkout, magento should “splits” cart in different orders, one for each physical shops, and asks for related payment and shipping method.

Do you know if there are any FREE extensions that could be combined in order to implement it? Practically my website should works like an e-commerce “gateway” where i can collect/group products from different physical shops and provide them orders based on their preferred shipping/payment method.

Probably i’m asking something similar to Amazon.com website.

Thank you very much,
Luca.

Multi-Warehouse extension can cover your needs. But IT ISN\’T FREE.

Hi,
Thank you for your answer. I looked at extension details/features and it looks great!

What about payment? is it possible to “pick” payment for each physical shop too?

I saw that i can define multiple warehouse (physical shops for me) and link product to them. So when customer tires to checkout, magento shows shipping methods for each distinct warehouse --> it’s great.

Is it possible also for the payment? I want that payment is directly between customer and physical shop. My gateway website shouldn’t be involved in money transaction.

Best

Hi,
Unfortunately payment methods are common for all warehouses.
