I’m preparing new project. My plan is to have online catalog of products from more suppliers from my city. I would like to know can Magento do this:
1. Totally remove E-commerce functionality from fronted. Remove Add to Cart buttons, remove basket..I just need catalog with prices.
2. If I understand correctly Magento don’t have (yet) multi vendor functionality so I would like to translate Manufactures to Vendors so that when user click on some vendor from list he will receive just products from that vendor. But I would like that when user browsing some categories (which display products from all vendors) he can see which vendor this product belong. Just like this page on demo: http://demo.magentocommerce.com/catalog/category/view/mode/list/id/15/ bellow product images to display vendors name and logo. Is that possible?
3. On product details page http://demo.magentocommerce.com/electronics/laptops/apple-macbook-pro-ma464ll-a-15-4-notebook-pc-2-0-ghz-intel-core-duo-1-gb-ram-100-gb-hard-drive-superdrive.html
I would like to display Vendors name, address and store location where user can purchase that product.
Thank you in advance for any help or suggestion.
