how to automate orders to send to specific stores?
Author Mark Bishop on 08-22-2000 at 18:09 (EST)
Is it possible to automate the orders to be sent via email to a specific email address depending on the order's state?

I'm about ready to experiment with uShop 3.0 on a non-profit site that has a few retail stores nationwide and they would like to have the incoming orders automatically emailed to certain stores depending on the shipping address on the order. This is to cut down on shipping costs.

Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated!

In uShop 3.0, there is not a special configuration parameter to configure the order notification email to be sent to a single, specific store based on the destination of the order, however, there are a couple options:

1) The easiest option would be to just use the "secondary" email option to list any number of locations that will receive the order notification. They would just have to have an agreement between them on who handles orders shipped to which states.

2) More ideal, however, would be to setup another copy of the ushop.pl script for each location (providing there are just a few locations). Then on your store pages, when the customer wants to begin the order process, make them first choose what region the order will be sent to. This could be done by putting multiple "uShopOrderButton" applets on the "Checkout" page.....or even by displaying a map of the US which links them to the corresponding "uShopOrderButton". The different uShopOrderButton applets could then link to the different ushop.pl scripts that were setup for each location.
