I’m looking to build a multi vendor / multi store solution and am hoping Magento might be able to do it.
Basically, what I want is a top level store with a full product catalogue but with orders fulfilled by a partner network depending on where the customer is, so if a customer places an order in New York the order (& payment) is sent to the New York partner.
Also, each partner has to have their own sub-store which shares the same catalogue as the top level store but where customised products can be added, and the store should have it’s own checkout facility.
Do you think Magento would be able to meet this need?
This is not possible out of the box with Magento at this time but can be achieved with customization. Multi level user permissions for separate stores in the same Magento installation is currently on the roadmap and may be available in future releases.
this is exactly what i am looking for. I can see all kinds of applications for this. Anyone with any online franchise concept would benefit from this. Please please please keep us filled in on this one.
I have 3 different clients that definitely could benefit from this feature.
