I am planning a new project to focus on selling specialty foods within the United States via the internet.
My company doesn't manufacture any of the products, but rather works with individual suppliers. We need a website that can sell many products made by many different suppliers. To do that, we need the supplier to be informed of the order when a customer purchases a product from the website. I'd like this process automated so that I don't have to worry about following up on the sales manually. In addition, I'd like to be made aware of these orders so that I can track sales.
I am not sure the best way to make this happen. Some people suggest the following. The customer places an order. The order is then emailed to the supplier. I receive the payment for the products and then turn around and make a payment to the suppliers. If this solution doesn't make sense, please let me know if you have another suggestion.
So, what I need is a site that has catergories of all the food products and when the user(which they will register) want to buy a product. There is an order form they fill out that is sent to e-mail of the supplier and the payment is sent to my paypal account, and then i transfer to the supplier, and the order will also be e-mailed to me so i can track sales.
Please send a pm with price and estimated time, and contact info
