Our company is looking for an experienced coder to develop for us a wholesale warehousing interface.
Here is how our business works. We import goods or have suppliers. We warehouse the goods, and our distributors sell the goods. We then ship the goods to our distributor's customers, using a generic customer service return address. Our distributors process their own customers payment, and we remain totally blind to our distributor's customers.
We are looking to provide each of our distributors with a website...than is fully customizeable to each of them. Their website's products are linked to our master database, so that any products we add, delete, or modify will show up instantly on their website. Our distributors should process their own payments from their customers. Our distributors should be able to add thier own products to their website, and have full control over their website, except for our products.
Finally, they should have full admin, being able to process their own payments, email their own customers, and promote thier own business. In the case of a customer buying a product from the master database, and a product from the distributor's inventory on the same order, the order should automatically be split. Shipping calculators should be on each site, and linked to our shipping prices.
If you need to see an example of this working, smartwin technology does this with their shopping cart system. We are using it right now. However, it is windows based, and we want a linux based system.
