Hello there!!
I'm using the free version of Hikashop and i would like to know if it's possible to do dropshipping, that is send the order directly to the manufacturer instead of the admin of the joomla portal...

i have hikashop starter 1.6.0 and i like it very much.. i have to build a online shop for a company and i'm looking forward to buy the business version...

thanks for the help :)

Hi simons,

You can set different email addresses for the order, in HikaShop > Configuration > E-mail, set another address for the value "Order creation notifications email address".
It is possible to set many email addresses, just separate them with a coma ",".

Hi Xavier thanks for your reply..

I thought about setting multiple email addresses, but every time a customer places an order, it is sent to all the emails in that field.. So that means if i have multiple manufacturers, they will receive orders also for the other products of other manufacturers...

am i right?

thanks!

Ok, a way to do this could be to create a custom field on the table "Product" called for example "Email Manufacturer", then set this email in he product edition page.
And edit the file: "yourSite\administrator\components\com_hikashop\classes\order.php", edit the "save()" function and change the value of "$order->mail->dst_email" with the value in the custom field of the product for the order creation email.

I think that you will have to do some request to have the good variables.

I made a custom field.. but now every time i create a new product i have to type the email of the manufacturer... it is possible to add a custom field to a brand?

I would make these changes:

1. add custom field to brand with email (or even with two distinct fields like "supplier mail" and "manufacturer mail".. sometimes they differs from each others)
2. add a foreach loop to the save function in order class to loop through every brand present in the order
3. send as many email as the number of the brands/manufacturers

do you think it's possible or it requires too much changes in the code?

thanks again for help!

Hi,

The problem is that I don't think that the brands are present in the order.
But you can find the categories of the product, but nor the brand categories.

It will be better to create categories for each brands, and assign these categories to the products, then recover all the product's categories, and make a request to select the properties of the categories, and stock the emails setted in the custom field assigned on the category.

Then send the emails.

Hi,
The best solution will probably be to :
I think that hte best solution will probably be to
- Create some products and categories manually
- Export them through a CSV file
- Edit this CSV file so that you'll be able to add your products and categories in it
- Import your CSV file back

Hi,

Is it still possible to implement dropshipping in a HikaShop? Or do I need HikaMarket therefore?

Hello,

It depends what kind of drop shipping you want to do.

Due to its structure, HikaMarket can provide a drop shipping system since the vendors are notified of the sales and can change the order status of their sub orders (to mark the products as shipped).
But, if you want to integrate with a "drop shipping" platform ; it won't be related to HikaMarket and would require a specific plugin to perform the integration with the "drop shipping" platform web services.

Hi Jerome,

They want to add a supplier to each product.
After a purchase they want to sent picking lists to their suppliers for that order. The suppliers will sent the goods to the customer. Out of one HikaShop-order more picking lists can be sent.

Hi,

Well, that's something you can do with HikaShop and HikaMarket multivendor.
HikaMarket will automatically send an email to each vendor with at least one product in the order after the confirmation of the order, and each notification email will contain the products of the product in the order and not the other's.
And it's also possible to see that for them in their vendor control panel if you authorize them to.
