Had a quick question in regards to potential solutions for this defined functionality: I know there are a few solutions that somewhat work, unirgy, marketplace multi vendor module.
Functionality: is based on creating subset vendors from the admin portal (only to allow the backend connection of each vendors products). There is no need for vendors to have their own portal to list products, as the admin will be taking care of that.
Admin section allows creation of vendor
Admin creates and assigns product to vendor
3) Product is listed on front end as magento normally would and doesn't show any vendors names just product information.
4) Customer can purchase product and check out as magento normally would.
5) Admin can pay vendor percentage of checkout via Paypal Adaptive.
So instead of it being admin->products it would be:
Admin->Add/Modify Products for that vendor
Admin->Pay Vendor->Paypal Adaptive
I'm wondering if the two solutions I listed above would be a good fit or if/ they are too robust/lacking for this.
