Same part from multiple vendors with multiple part numbers
In aftermarket selling there is multiple part numbers from multiple vendors that is really the same part. Does anyone have an idea how to put these vendors and part numbers in Magento so the search engine will reference them to the part being sold?
I don’t know if this is what you want to do, but you can create a configurable product, with all the asociated products being the same product from the different vendors.
In that case, when you search you will get one product, and when you go to the product you can choose vendor.
