Supplier Extension

The Supplier Extension

This is an ideal tool to manage suppliers for your store products and a must have for drop shippers. The primary function of the Supplier Extension is to allow you to customize shipping options for each supplier getting more accurate shipping quotes based on the actual ship from location instead of one common location. Products are shown by supplier on your checkout pages, very similar to the way Amazon handles shipments from different sellers. You can even make your operation look bigger by using customized descriptions like: Shipped From Our Phoenix Warehouse.

Works with all 1.2 versions of AbanteCart.


Each product is assigned a supplier and each supplier their own parameters, shipping methods and handling fees. You control each supplier individually. With built in reporting, you can track the sales performance of your supplier's products.
