About setting a new product's url


Recommended Posts

When adding a new product to the catalog you have the ability to:


set a product's url if you need to link out to another site


Ok, I don't see any more explanation about this.


My question is:

If I use this feature will the customer still be able to add this item

to their cart in my store? If yes, can I prevent it?


I have a gift store and a few items are special. I am able to display the items on my site but cannot actually sell the item on my site.

I must link to the originating site where my customer may purchace the item and I will receive a commission for the sale.


Thank You

I don't see how it is possible to do this with items in your catalog.

The products get displayed in product_info.php and the document is filled based on the item selected. The add to cart button is the same for every product.

One workaround you could do is create a page with that specific product using one of your information pages as a template. you could use the add to cart button but set the url for the supplier url.
