WooCommerce to WooCommerce connection for multi-vendors
We operate our store on your platform and more often we are connecting and selling our products on multi-vendor marketplaces, which are also using WooCommerce as their chosen back-end platform.
With other marketplaces such as MarketCube and Jetti, they can link to our inventory, stock, and orders. The inventory updates according to stock we show in our WooCommerce store, new products are automatically uploaded to the marketplace and orders are automatically added to our dashboard, which deducts our stock of the items sold.
It does not look like there is an option for a WooCommerce store to talk to a WooCommerce multi-vendor site, so we cannot get any of these features.
Issues have already begun to arise, with stock feeds being out of date after only a few days. We do not have the manpower to manually update the stock with these marketplaces (currently we sell on 15 different sites) and so we have customer services issues with stock being sold that we don't have.
Around peak periods such as Christmas, it will be impossible for us to maintain accurate stock or forecast stock if visibility of what is selling is so skewed.
Currently we work with Etsy, Amazon and Ebay, all of which we can plug in easily, allowing us to maintain and forecast stock.
If you can make something available for multi-vendor sites to pull our stock and inventory and pass orders down to us, this would be incredible.
as a marketplace, being able to do this for our sellers would be amazing and is a top priority for us as we look to integrate to other platforms but WooCommerce is definitely one we wish to include.
