More detailed merchandising information

Is there any documentation or blog post(s) to explain how catalogs, categories, properties and linked categories work?


Perhaps with a few worked examples.


Would make the process of trying to evaluate Virto Commerce a good deal easier to see how to design a shop.

Hi Jack,


noted and we'll try to put more documentation regarding those concepts. In the meantime, checkout the following picture: http://virtocommerce.com/Cms_Data/Sites/VirtoCommerceNew/Themes/images/business-features/1.png


It explains visually how catalogs and virtual catalogs work.

There is documentation in user guide on how to use those, for example: http://docs.virtocommerce.com/display/vc1userguide/Creating+a+Linked+Category and http://docs.virtocommerce.com/display/vc1userguide/Creating%2C+editing+and+deleting+a+Catalog.

Hello Sasha,
Thanks for the links. I have read the user guide (and the developer one for that matter) and still find myself struggling to get a real grip on how the merchandising system really works. The documentation explains the really obvious things but leaves out how it all hangs together. A worked example, maybe using the demo site,  would be a good start.
