-- HikaShop version -- : 2.5.0
-- HikaMarket version -- : 1.6.5
-- Joomla version -- : 3.4.3
-- PHP version -- : 5.4.27
-- Browser(s) name and version -- : Firefox 40.0.3

My Multivendor-shop has the following constellation:
All products are edited only by the shopowner not by the vendors.
All Vendors all selling the same Products (same price, same variants).
Product-duplication is not allowed because of generating huge amount of products.
And a Product should not be assigned to a spezific vendor.

1.) Is it then still possible that a Customer is assigned to the nearest vendor in relation to customer city or zip code during checkout?
is this done with "Allow zone vendors" in the configuration?
how should i configure the "category options" in the section "market options"
"Parent category for vendors": none or the product category ?

or if the above solution does not work:
2.) Is it possible to store a prefered vendor for a customer and to show the Vendor-name, Adress, E-Mail, Tel...
automaticaly in a modul after the customer logs in.

The Customer should select his prefered Vendor at Registration (changeable later in his profile)
I can define a custom field "prefered vendor" (type: Vendor selection) in the user-table but how can i display the vendor-adress... automatically after login
3.) the "prefered vendor" shold be automatically preselected for the customer during checkout-prozess for future purchases!

Hi,

1/ The "vendor zone" is using HikaShop zones ; which means that it will be limited to countries/states ; you can't target cities or zip codes.
If you want another "algorithm" you need a custom plugin and use the trigger "onBeforeProductsVendorAttribution"
www.hikashop.com/support/documentation/1...ctsVendorAttribution

2/ It will require some custom development to add that feature.
Using a custom plugin and "onBeforeProductsVendorAttribution" too ; but also some view overrides to display the specific content.

3/ As point 2 ; it will require some custom development to add that feature.

The vendor attribution has today two methods : the vendor zone (with the limitation that I explained above) and the vendor selection using an item custom field or an order custom field.
Having a vendor zone using zip/cities is complex for the determination of the "nearest" ; I don't see how I could implement something generic in HikaMarket for that kind of feature.
