My client needs multiple items with the same SKU. She use to be on Ecwid, and she said they allowed this, and also an "Item Number" to distinguish between different products with the same SKU.
She doesn't want them to be variations. She wants her customers to find them separately, and not to have to select them as variations of the same product, hence my dilemma.
I've built the whole site and she is uploading products now. She just told me about this need, and she's launching Friday (day after tomorrow). So it's urgent.
I haven't found any extensions or other ways to do this. I've even considered not using SKU's at all, and adding an SKU as an attribute. The only problem with this is that she wants the SKU to show on the customers receipt, but attributes don't.
Any ideas, than putting her SKU's in that actual Product Names?
