We are currently using CREloaded for our shop system, and frankly itÃ¢â¬â¢s an absolute mess. We paid some developers to build in a few features/hacks that we needed, and they have messed up most of the system. I would dearly love to be able to scrap the whole thing and move over to Magento as soon as possible.
The main thing that we absolutely must have is a stock control system that works similarly to this…
1. A website visitor chooses to place an order and pay for it using one of these methods:
Ã¢â¬Â¢ Credit card payment Ã¢â¬â for offline processing (ie this is NOT instantaneously validated and debited)
Ã¢â¬Â¢ Bank transfer
Ã¢â¬Â¢ Cash / Postal order
Stock levels are not subtracted at this point as we do not know whether payment will clear, or be received by mail.
2. When payment has been received/cleared, we manually mark the order status as Ã¢â¬ËClearedÃ¢â¬â¢ in the admin system
3. Our order fulfillment company logs in each day, dispatches all the orders with a status of Ã¢â¬ËClearedÃ¢â¬â¢ and marks the order status as Ã¢â¬ËDispatchedÃ¢â¬â¢.
4. Only when the stock is marked as dispatched will it subtract that orderÃ¢â¬â¢s stock from the stock levels
Will Magento have a stock management system that will work with these requirements - I had a look around the site and could not find any details on this.
