Magento Dropshipping Price/Stock Level Solution


I am setting up and online store selling electronics and hold no inventory, but I have accounts with a number of dropshipping suppliers.

What I Need

A script to continually monitor price and inventory level changes with each product on the websites of my various suppliers.

In cases where a product is stocked by more than one supplier, the script needs to check each supplier which a) stocks the product and b) has the product in stock at that time and then choose the cheapest of these and add a specified percentage mark-up to this product before displaying it on the site.

If all suppliers of that product are out stock, this needs to be reflected on-site.

Adding a Mark-Up

As mentioned above, I need to be able to change the percentage price added to the wholesale price in order to change the retail price displayed on site. I am in Australia and we have a 10% GST tax, so this will need to function approximately as follows:

i.e. I have an iPod from by Supplier A, whose wholesale price retrieved by the script is $300 (exclusive of 10% GST Tax).

I would like to sell that is at a ten percent mark-up so I enter "10%" into whatever kind administrative back-end you set up and the price that appears on-site is $363

($300 wholesale ex. 10% GST = $330 + 10% mark-up= $363).

How It Might Be Done

Really, I am looking for a problem solver on this job. I have a few ideas about how this might be done, but I'm really looking for a creative thinker who can implement this in the best way possible:

All of my suppliers tend to generate price/inventory in different formats; some are CSV, some XML, some generated on-demand from HTTP post requests, some emailed at midnight every day with the file in raw CSV or others as a .CSV.ZIP.

Every supplier, however, has a website where I can log in and see stock levels and wholesale prices... in this case, I wonder if the best way to do this might be to create a script that automates the log-in process, then rips the price and stock level from that HTML page.

I envisage an administrative back-end that would function in a way that I could add new products to this script by pasting in the URLs to their page with each supplier I have.


Add URL (or SKU?) of product on-site

Select supplier 1 from dropdown list

past in URL of product detail page at supplier 1's site


Add URL (or SKU?) of product on-site

Select supplier 2 from dropdown list

past in URL of product detail page at supplier 2's site, etc.

Delivery Timeframe

There is no strict deadline for this job but I would like to hear your estimation of how long it would take.

I am looking to establish a long term relationship with a talented PHP/MySQL/Magento developer and I look forward to hearing your proposals about the best way to implement this solution.
