I started working on your suggestion.
Lets say a product has got variants (may come in 4 colors). So, I created a
virtual product and created 4 variants for it. Now I want to associate two
suppliers with this product as you suggested. I have a related query:
Shall I assign a supplier to virtual product or variant product? If I
assign to virtual then how can I configure which supplier provides which
variant? There is a table supplier_product_feature but I am not sure how to
configure and make use of the same.
