The simplest way (and most used) is to give the two stores the store codes “retail” and “wholesale”. This is done in the admin menu System > Manage Stores.
Then, in System > Configuration > Web > URL Options, change Add Store Code to URLs to “Yes”.
Since the two stores have separate products, and probably separate customers too then it makes more sense to have them on two separate websites too. Even though they are called “websites” in System > Manage Stores they do not have to have different domains. It will still work perfectly well.
- I want 1 store to show products from multiple merchants/users.
- I want to create users who can only maintain their own products.
- When a customer buys products from multiple merchants, I want each merchant to see only their own purchased products from that customer.
Hello Guus, if you are still interested in this functionality, you may take a look at this extension: http://amasty.com/magento-advanced-permissions.html. It will help you to assign permissions to users for editing products and categories, Magento store-views and websites. No mess when having a lot of users in your store â vendors, category managers, etc. â you’ll be able to let them see and edit certain categories and products.
- Limit access by store-view and website
- Separate products management
- Separate categories management
- Duplicate roles quickly
- Automatic compatibility with other extensions
Please visit the Advanced Permissions extension page to see the live demo, detailed description and a user guide.
