Stopping multiple stores showing in catergory

We have just build our first store. Our main aim is to provide price comparison for each item we list. Which means we have a number of the same item listed from different merchants. Sadly this means under category a single item can show maybe three or four times. This clutters every category we have added.

What I need to know is there a way, in the category page, to show 1 item listing rather than multi-listing for each item because we are pulling it in from a number of merchants to be able to offer price comparison.

Not sure if any of this makes sense. As I say we are brand new to this and may be missing the obvious.

Hi Steve

Welcome to the forums!

I've done this for another user. I outlined the instructions here: /show...5465#post25465

Thanks for your quick reply Eric, I'll have a look at this and see if I can get it to work.

Don't really want to put url on a forum

Hi Eric,

I tried your suggestion of creating a custom view . I called it Master Product Category (by mistake) but changed the DRF: to match this. I followed your other instructions.

However now when I go to my category page nothing at all shows up. I have set over 40 comparison sets. I believe this makes a product a 'master product'

Stuck now. I will email my url to you if you need it.

You added a Product Detail module to the new Custom View. You should have added a Product List module.

Ooops! Thanks for that. It now works fine. Thanks for that Eric.

Note that you don't have to add all products you need for a comparison set to your store categories.

It's ok to just add the products from one merchant to your store.

Then create a comparison set for each product and add the same product from other merchants via the comparison set page to the comparison set.
