VERSION SPECIFIC NOTES:

In OpenCart versions 1.5.5 thru 1.5.6.x The OpenCart developer team remove HTTP_IMAGE define from the config.php in the store admin and store front. If you are missing the image define code, the drop ship vendor module will not send out emails to vendor. Make sure this code exist in both of your stores config.php files. If it does not exist, add them.

The code: define('HTTP_IMAGE', 'http://yourstore.com/image/');

ADDITIONAL NOTES: 

When using the multiple vendor per product version and more than one vendor has been linked to a product the extension will not send the automatic email to vendor. For that product you will have to send the email manually through the admin.

  1. After installing the module click the edit icon. Make all global settings then press the save icon.
  2. Go to Catalog>Vendors and setup vendors. After adding all the required information press the save icon.
  3. Go to Catalog>Product select a product to edit. Go to the Links tab and select a vendor for the product then press the save icon.
  4. When an order comes in go to sales/orders/view.
  5. When in order page scroll down to see Vendor email section, click drop down, select a vendor. Information will automatically populate all pertinent fields.
  6. Review your order to vendor make any changes (all fields can be overridden) and send you order. Your vendor/supplier will receive all of the information needed to place an order.

USAGE NOTES:

If the automatic email to vendor was selected in the vendor edit, every time that product is sold an automatic email will be sent to the vendor. If more than one vendor is assigned to a product the automatic emails will not be sent out. If you wish the email to be sent automatically as a PDF then only one vendor can be assigned to the product. If multiple vendors are added to a product the vendor email must be sent manually from the admin order page Vendor Email tab.
