Modified on: Fri, May 29, 2015 at 6:30 PM

To set up the Suppliers add-on:

  1. In the administration panel, go to Add-ons > Manage add-ons.
  2. Enable the Suppliers add-on (change its status to Active in the select box on the right).
  3. Go to Customers > Suppliers.
  4. Create a new supplier by clicking the + button. Define the supplier's name, contact information and shipping address.

  5. Open the Products tab and click Add product to choose the supplier's products.

  6. Open the Shippings tab and select shipping methods available for the supplier.

- If a customer buys a product that is assigned to a supplier, the  shipping methods assigned to this supplier will be available only.
- If a customer buys several products from different suppliers, several  shipping methods (assigned to the suppliers) will be used in the order.  The shipping cost will be summed.
- When an order is placed, a notification about it will be sent to the  corresponding supplier's email in order that he could ship the purchased product(s) to a customer.
- In order to hide the supplier name in the customer area the Display product supplier company setting needs to be disabled on the Suppliers add-on settings page.
