Product displays required to display a single product?
I am setting up a site for a jewelry store where each product is arguably unique (in other words, no attributes like color, size, as there are for T-shirts).
Do I understand correctly that in order to create a page display for a single product, I need to pull it into a product display node with the product reference field? Or is there a way to create a single product display using the product entity alone?
It seems to me a bit redundant to have, say, 200 unique products, and then have to create 200 node product displays just so I can display the product and then apply taxonomy to create catalogs.
I just wish to be sure that I understand this correctly. Don't want to have to do more work than is necessary :-)!
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
