I own a e-commerce and currently have a php script that fulfils customer orders (i.e send customers receipts,download links for software ordered, and order information for other orders which i have to process manually). I would like to add further automation to my website by extending the current php script to process most of my manual orders by;
a)passing the orders to one specific supplier via their API so that my orders are automatically processed by them (i will supply information and manual for this API later) and..,
b)as well as the above I also want the option to send some orders to other individual suppliers (this is for when i find a cheaper supplier on certain products). I want to be able toggle each product from the API supplier to another supplier and give the alternative suppier a login user/pass so that they login and process the orders that are waiting for them (order that have not gone to my main supplier via their API). When a supplier adds a comment/fulfils the order, i want this information to be automatically passed back directly to my customer (via email).
The products are digital/information based hence why fulfilment is via email.
The script i currently use has the ability for me to enable a function that then stores all new orders into a mysql database. So in affect all i need is a php script to either a) pass orders to one designated supply via their API or b) present a list of orders categories by type to different suppliers (e.g XY products to supplier XY, ZZ orders to my zz supplier) . My suppliers change often so the scripts should be secure i.e allow me to password protect it so that when i change supplier i can create a new user/pass for the new supplier.
I need some-one who is available to work on this for me straight away and hope for a quick turnaround.
Skills required will be PHP and mySQL.
