I am setting up a site that requires both a ‘retail’ end and a ‘trade’ end.
the retail end will be able to do all the things that a typical ecommerce site can do (buy suff etc)
the trade end will have all the same items on it and allow trade customers to buy from it
so basically both the ‘ends’ will have have the same products and share the same stock levels but the prices will be different and the trade store will behave in a slightly different way (i.e. have different navigation and payment options)
Am i right in thinking that i need to set up two ‘websites’ in magento??
or do i set up one website that has 2 stores??
Obviously retail customers will should not have the option to select the trade store, i was hoping to restrict access based on a different web page. i.e. have the retail site set up as http://www.mysite.com and have the trade site on a different url i.e. http://www.trade.mysite.com
Thanks in advance
