I was thinking for a way to have multiple suppliers, have a functional
single store front, and each supplier be able to upload products without
seeing the other suppliers products.
Using any relational database you can have one table per supplier then
define a view for the products, that way it is invisible for IC the supplier
table, IC only is able to see the products table (view), then define rules
for update, and insert, in a way that depending in the primary key (sku) the
product is placed in the apropiate supplier table.
Define users in the admin, that can access only one supplier table, that way
each supplier can upload their products, and manage them without knowing
there are other suppliers.
Any commments, drawbacks?
