I'm setting up an e-commerce site. However, this is unique because there will be one storefront, but there will be multiple merchants in that storefront. The owner of the site wants all orders directed to the seller, not to the site-owner (invoice at least, ideally payment too).
The reason to do it all in one storefront is so that site visitors can buy from multiple vendors and only 'check out' once....after checkout, the appropriate invoices/orders are sent to the proper seller, and ideally, the payment as well.
Think of this like Amazon.com. They sell from many stores around the world, but you buy from all of them with one checkout process.
Does anyone have a clue how this, or something similar could be achieved using E-Commerce, Ubercart, or anything else?
The only option I see right now is just to have the sellers have their own paypal links with 'buy it now' buttons...but that's not integrated with the rest of the drupal site, and it would get confusing.
Any help or ideas would be very much appreciated.
