We are an online retailer with a heavily modified version of OSCommerce 2.2 MS1 and we need assistance in automating our order processing. For the last few years we have used the OSCommerce inventory tracking to also display the stock status of an item on our site. For example, if an item has a quantity of 1 to 699 it is listed as "In Stock - Ships Same Day. If it has a quantity of 700, then the item is listed as "In Stock at Vendor Warehouse". We are then able to notify the customer on our web site that a particular item can take a little longer to ship out as it does not come from our warehouse. Other examples: if an item has a quantity of 912 it is listed as On Order - Expected to Ship in 1-2 days, 923 is On Order - Expected to ship in 2-3 days, etc, etc. Overall we have a dozen different stock statuses all of which prevent us from properly using automated inventory tracking. We are unable to use the current system to automatically deduct inventory as orders come in. For example, if we were automatically deducting inventory as orders were being placed, and somebody were to order a drop ship item, the quantity would switch from 700 to 699 and the item would then be inaccurately listed as "In Stock - Ships Same Day". Therefore we would like to separate out our stock status "system" from our inventory tracking so that we can automatically deduct inventory as orders come in and not have to worry about the stock statuses changing. We would need some type of system where we are able to set the stock status of each product. The only time it would automatically change based on inventory is when we run out of an item. Otherwise the two would be completely separate. As of today we manually deduct stock for each order and we manually capture the authorized credit card funds, order by order. This process is very time consuming and we would like to automate as much of it as possible. For this reason we would also like to switch our payment gateway from [url removed, login to view] to TrustCommerce as the automation possibilities seem to be greater with the TrustCommerce platform. We'd like each order that contains in stock items to have the stock deducted in OSCommerce automatically and the authorized funds to be captured automatically as well. If this is not possible we would like to be able to have the stock deducted and the funds captured with a click of a button in the OSCommerce admin backend. Some of this functionality already exists in the OSCommerce/TrustCommerce payment module: [url removed, login to view],127/category,all/search,trustcommerce Finally, once the stock is deducted and the funds are captured the order status would automatically change from "Pending" to a different status which will allow our warehouse to see that the order is ready to be picked and packed.
