Large Store with large # of Categories - better to Link or Copy Products?
i have been given the job of loading a large product catalogue onto zen-cart and I'm looking for some advice on the best way to do it.
I have a catalogue of approx 800,000 part numbers across nearly 20,000 categories/ sub categories.
Unfortunately i wont be able to significantly decrease the number of categories so i'm focusing on the products.
Which of the following is the best option to organise them - or what option have i not even thought of
I'm thinking along the lines of what would be easier on the server to speed up page loading.
i can organise the products so each product page would have one attribute name and about 60 attribute values.
Or i can upload about 100,000 products and link them to the categories
or finally i can just upload 800,000 products and not have them cross link.
Which is the best of these options?
I appreciate your comments and suggestions
