Supplier / Brands

Post by Yvler » 08 Jun 2015, 11:34

Another problem/question:

Is there a way to add brands with products? example:
brand: Coca Cola Company
product:
- coca cola
- fanta
...

What is "supplier" in the admin/templates? Is this used for adding brands, or is this really the supplier of the goods? (like in a company who is supplying the products of the coca cola company)?

If supplier can be used for this.. how do we link the products with a supplier? We couldn't find any details about this nor is demo data using any of this.

Sorry, didn't saw your post earlier!

The supplier can be exactly used for these kind of requirement and you can link your products to suppliers in the product detail view of the admin interface.

Currently, only the supplier name is shown in the frontend. If you need the full information, you can add a new subpart for the catalog detail component that fetches the supplier item using its manager and generating the HTML based on this item. More information are available here: http://aimeos.org/docs/Developers/Html_ ... w_subparts

If you need more information, please ask.

Is there a possibility that you're going to change this in the future?
or for suppliers to be in multiple levels?

It's currently not our most important task. If you need it within a reasonable time frame, we can help you to get a subpart for this implemented (it's really easy) and we would love to see it in the core as well.

Can you explain what are your requirements regarding suppliers?

you may always help us get to start this up
it's still hard to understand how the whole code is working :)

our requirements are very simple.. we have brands in different categories :)
so we have a master brand with different sub-brands... products can be available under the master brand, or can be added to sub brands..

for example:
coca cola company (master brand)
- cola (sub brand)
-- cola light (product)
-- cola zero (product)
- fanta (product under master brand)
- sprite (same as above)

so it's kinda the same as how categories work :)

Well, Aimeos is a full-featured web shop with around 160 000 lines of code and another 100 000 lines of comments but the best thing is: Every kind of component, controller, manager, etc. is working the same way. If you understood one, you understand them all :-)

Please ask as many questions as you need. This is the only way for us to see where we need to improve the documentation.

OK, this looks like you should really use categories :-)
How are suppliers connected to this? What is the improvement related to them you need for your project? Only to display one supplier for each product or is there more?

Where exactly do you link the product to the supplier? I'm looking at the Product Detail page now (in TYPO3) and the only tabs I see are:
Basic
Images
Texts
Prices
Stocks
Categories
Characteristics
Options
Products
Physical
Downloads
Subscription
Special
...... but none of them have any place where I can specify supplier...... ?
