NOTE: This will only work on the Default Opencart Checkout.
I have now included an order total module that you can use to charge a 'Dropship Fee'.
This mod allows customers in the 'Dropship' customer group to specify a temporary shipping address - during checkout they select 'I want to use a new address' but instead of the address being saved in their address book, the shipping address is only saved with the order. This prevents dropshipping customers ending up with an enourmous address book that would require constant management.
However, there is a 'Save this Address' checkbox for if they want to save the address.
An optional vQmod is provided to make the address persistent for the current order. If the customer leaves the checkout (to add more products etc) then the 'Add New Address' fields will be re-populated to save them re-entering the address.
Another optional vQmod is provided that allows adding of email address and telephone number to the 'Add New Address' in the checkout.
This mod also highlights orders that are 'Dropship' orders and also provides a new 'Invoice' that can be used as a packing slip. There is also a 'File Copy' invoice to use for your records which is in the style of a standard invoice showing the prices etc.
How this Works:
Create a new customer group called 'Dropship'
Assign dropshipping customers to the new 'Dropship' group.
Everything else is transparent - it works off the name 'Dropship'
Be Aware: I can't vouch for this working if you have other checkout mods installed but I'll obviously help where I can. IT WILL ONLY WORK ON THE DEFAULT CHECKOUT - NOT ONE PAGE CHECKOUTS ETC.
This is delivered as a vQmod and 2 additional template files. No files are overwritten but you will need vqmod installed to use this.
