This document will guide you through the process of creating a �product finder� for your web site leveraging the MetaLocator category system. In MetaLocator can create a product finder in many ways, but we focus on these three common scenarios:
- Product Finder Using Categories: In this scenario we will use Categories to allow our users to search for types of products and the stores that may carry them. This is useful when you have a relatively short number of product categories. This is the scenario described in this document and is the simplest method of creating a product finder in MetaLocator.
- Inventory Product Finder: In this example, you have many products and many stores, and each store�s inventory of your products may vary.
- Find a Product: Here we show you how to create a link which will display the stores that carry a certain product. You may then use this link on your Web site�s eCommerce pages.
