For each product, it is possible to specify its supplier, i.e. a company that supplies you with the product. You will typically use this information only for your internal purposes and will not display it on your website.
When creating a new product or editing an existing one (on the General tab), you can choose its supplier in the Supplier drop-down list as highlighted in the screenshot below.
Suppliers can be managed in CMS Desk -> E-commerce -> Suppliers. In this section of the administration interface, you can see a list of all defined suppliers. New ones can be added to the list by clicking the New supplier button above the list. Properties of already defined suppliers can be edited by clicking the Edit () icon in the Actions column. You can also delete a supplier by clicking the Delete () icon.
When creating a new supplier or editing an existing one, you can specify the following properties:
•Display name - the name of the supplier displayed to the users of your website.
•Code name - the name of the supplier used by developers in the code.
•Supplier e-mail - can be used to specify the supplier's e-mail address.
•Supplier phone - allows to enter the supplier's phone number.
•Supplier fax - can be used to specify the supplier's fax number.
•Enabled - indicates if the supplier object can be used in your on-line store. For example, if checked, the respective supplier can be selected from the Supplier drop-down list when editing a product on its General tab.
