Hello,

"Drop shipping" is the "shipping per vendor" feature ; you can split the products into different shipping groups and let the customer see where he should
www.hikashop.com/support/documentation/1...onfig_market_general

There you can see if you want your vendors to all use a "manual" shipping method or if you want that they all have to configure their own shipping methods.

Afterwards, you have to see how you want to manage the payment, if you want the vendor to be paid directly (collect on delivery) or not :

Hi,

I am currently analyzing the marketplace add-on for such a scenario (re: drop-shipping)

I am also curious about

(1) the import capabilities in HS. Can it do more than just import ? Can it synch with a drop shipper ?
(2) the vendor payments is cool, can it also send / fulfill the order with the vendor (a drop-shopper in this case) ?

Thanks
Danny

Hello,

1 - The HikaShop import system is there to perform import. Afterwards I'm sorry but I don't know what you're talking about.
If you have specific questions for the HikaShop import, please post in the HikaShop section of the forum.

2 - When you "pay" the vendor in the HikaMarket backend, it creates a special kind of "order" and the vendor is notified for that.
And when order are made by customers, the vendors can also be notified for their sales.

Thanks Jerome
I will continue my investigation and report back
It's going to be difficult to compete against Oberlo <-> Shopify here ... The intuitiveness of their combined solutions brings to a store administrator (drop-shipper) is something we (Hikashop) should probably look into.
I will update us
Thanks

Hi guys I think this is an important feature clarification and still not clear answer about the future e-commerce with Drop-shipping.

I think this was good questions to sort out and "The HikaShop import system is there to perform import. Afterwards I'm sorry but I don't know what you're talking about..:" maybe just have yes and now answer help understanding these questions

2 Qustions Jermoe

1. Can HikaShop synch with a drop shipper ? yes or no

2. can it also send / fulfill the order with the vendor (a drop-shopper in this case) ? yes or no

Thanks!

Hi SSnobben,

Currently, the Hikashop import process will simply import items from a file. There's no synch capabilities, it's purely importing (stop's there).

As for the vendor notifications on a sale, this sort of happens as a Drop Shipper would like by actually sending an order confirmation to the vendor for them to full-fill. This only works with the Marketplace version of Hikashop.

On my end, I enjoy the synch concept offered with Oberlo (just started) but it seems to be quite a large undertaking to reproduce for Hikashop/marketplace.

But ya, it would be very nice to see it happen

Danny

Hello,

I wrote in my very first message:

"Drop shipping" is the "shipping per vendor" feature ; you can split the products into different shipping groups and let the customer see where he should

Afterwards, if the "drop shipping" is not the same definition ; you have to explain it.
