I have been asked at work if itís possible to create a web shop but have the shopping basket or order diverted to our dealers also if a customer entered his postcode the site will direct to his nearest dealer

Is this a programming job?

Appreciate any tips or advice

Wouldn't it be easier just to keep the visitor on your site the whole time and just send the order to the closest dealer? This sounds like a regular project, for which you need more than a programmer.

yes it cold be done i guess via the ip address of the visitor
then redirect based on that , you would need to use something like a switch statement to provide an address for a location variable.
just brainstorming here :)
