WSX5 and DROPShipping  en

Author: Sinisa B.
Visited 184, Followers 1, Shared 0  

A client of mine asked me if she could have a DROPSHIPPING e-shop made with WS X5?

I have told her yes - because DROPSHIPPING is the procedure where - upon receiving the order - the web-shop owner has to buy that particular item from the supplier... so, since this procedure is "manual" - it could be done in WSX5...

Was my answer correct?

Thank you in advance for the feedback!

@ Aleksej

I believe this final STEP could be (must be) automated (web shop owner - upon the order - has to buy the item from the supplier)  - but how to do this with WSX5?

I think i.e. Shopify has some app that can do it - am I'm right Aleksej?

Hello Sinisa

As indicated by Aleksej and hinted by you before, it would be no problem to have something like this done in the software since it is but a simple ecommerce. The part where the product is in fact purchased by a different supplier will have to be handled manually at the end of the procedure.

In short, WebSite X5 has no internal logic nor standard functionality to get something like this to work automatically. You would have to create a normal ecommerce in the software and then manually handle the orders to the external supplier after the purchase

Please let me know if you need further clarification

Thank you

Stefano
