I am creating a website for a manufacturer. They want to showcase their products in categories. I have looked at commerce kickstart and think it works great for their purposes. The only thing is they do not want prices displayed due to selling through wholesale distribution.Is there a distribution similar to this?
To be honest if you aren’t selling products than commerce distribution is probably a huge over kill. If you just simply need to display products and categorize them the standard version of Drupal 7 with some contributed modules should do the trick.
I would create a “Product” content type, use taxonomy for categories and then create a view or series of views for the catalogue. Something like this: http://www.singervalve.com/products/18
