I am going to deploy my first eCommerce site, and the host where this particular site is at offers Miva Merchant.

I read The Official Guide to Miva Merchant 4.x (only US$5 at the Borders outlet store!) and all seemed straightforward. The site is for a school, and they wish to offer on-line registration for students as well as book sales.

Where it's very clear how to offer books for sale, I was curious about how to offer the courses, which are offered every week. Would I/they need to continuously add attributes for the product/course, or would I create separate products for each course/date combination? My guess is the former, and I would be extract the data and easily get the information on what dates the person registered for.

Any advise is appreciated.

thnx... mp/m
