I am starting an eCommerce marketplace of local stores, they can upload their products on my platform and buyers can place orders through us. I also plan to have a program like powership (ebay ) for the sellers.
However for delivery is where the problem kicks in. This is based in India and the problem is the normal retail stores are not really professional, so I am anticipating this situation - if the vendor receives an order and marks it ready for shipping and I forward the order to the shipping company for pick up - and the vendor doesn't keep the order ready for pick up. This will result in lot of cost as the shipping company will still charge .
Any ideas on how I can solve this problem? - may be some rules i should create ? or something ? Please help me - this is a problem I want to solve and run not away from.
