Attaching manufacturer and details to products
I have used Drupal itself for a few years but not the e-commerce portion. I am using Drupal 7.9 with DrupalCommerce 1.0 Jumping a site from a Virtuemart, I am trying to find references on how to attach manufacturers to products and record details such as address, contact info for the manufacturer. I have investigated using manufacturer as a taxonomy so far.
If someone could possibly give me an idea on the best approach to do this in DrupalCommerce, or provide urls to documentation I have missed, it is greatly appreciated. Lost a day or two asking Google the wrong questions apparently.
Thanks in advance,
