Adding Multi-Vendor Taxation & Enhanced Shipping Management in Quick2Cart 2.2

Adding Multi-Vendor Taxation & Enhanced Shipping Management in Quick2Cart 2.2

As promised earlier this week, we are here with a blog detailing how we plan to implement Multi-Vendor taxation & shipping in Quick2Cart. It also includes details of how full-fledged shipping Shipping configuration, including weight-based calculations & 3PD shipping, will be handled. In order to make it completely flexible, we are making all configurations available on a Store level so that a vendor can have an independent configuration for each of his stores ( if you are also using Multi-Store) 

With this, we are also starting an exercise to better manage Shipping & taxation in Joomla in general. Just like payments, there are thousands of shipping providers with their own APIs and similar ones for tax calculation are cropping up. We hope that our work in this will lead to Common APIs for Shipping & taxation which can be used by the entire community. 

As always, your suggestions are welcome. Do comment on the blog & post any comments you might have.
