Multi Warehouse i.e. Combination dropshipping and own stock management

#1
Anyone has a combination of dropship with the woocommerce plugin and own stock in a warehouse or in a fulfilment solution?

I want to know what the best multiwarehouse wordpress plugin is to separate orders for dropshipping and sending by ourselfs from our stock is.

Thanks

You don't need any additional plugin. Just add your own products manually and process the orders for them manually, like normal Woo products. And process the Aliexpress orders with the built in semi automatic process, as usual. When Aliexpress products are updated, only they are updated. It won't affect the other custom products you have added. You need to manage them yourself, like inserting the stock quantities so Woo can tick them off each time you sell one so it can keep track of the stock levels.

Just add a custom product as a test and check it out. It's pretty simple.

Or you can check out these Google results for a plugin...

For your own products that you control sure you could automate it. But judging by the following quote, you seem to have worked that out already.
Bottom line, however you handle the order processing, you can mix Aliexpress and your own products in the one store. Like I said, no need of a bloated multistore plugin.

What would you think of automation? I figured it out a few days ago.
Then why the enquiry here if you have it all sorted? How about making an informative post instead? Maybe someone could make use of it.

It's good to be optimistic ... the power of positive thinking and all that ... and you'll need a shitload of orders to pay for those automation solutions you mentioned ... lol.

But you asked me what I think ... I prefer the "human touch" and will stick with semi automation ... at least for the time being. What do others on this forum think? Anyone?
