Subject [jira] [Commented] (OFBIZ-5573) Implementation of VENDOR MANAGEMENT software in Ofbiz in ecommerce component
Date Fri, 14 Mar 2014 14:27:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-5573?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13935071#comment-13935071

Adrian Crum commented on OFBIZ-5573:

This will be a nice feature to have. I recently implemented this for a client, so I can provide
some tips.

1. The design documents need to be more specific. They are a great start, but I am confused
about some terminology: "Delete Item" and "Update Item" - what does "Item" mean? Is it a sales
order item or a product? I don't see any mention of products. It seems to me vendors should
be able to manage their product line.

2. Splitting the sale amount between vendor and marketplace (the "contract") should be implemented
as an Agreement. A nice feature to have is a "default" agreement - tied to the Product Store
- that can be used when a vendor-specific agreement does not exist.

3. The Vendor functionality is partially implemented in OFBiz. Different bits of code have
different methods of determining if a Marketplace/Vendor scenario is in use, and as a result,
the behavior is inconsistent. In my implementation, I used a new field in ProductStore - "useMarketplace"
(indicator) - to explicitly declare that a product store is using the marketplace business
model. Then I replaced the existing inconsistent code with code that checks the "useMarketplace"
