I am looking for a way to transfer a product attribute to quote item whenever a product is added. I came across a method in which I could write an observer to hook onto th event:sales_quote_item_set_product and set the quote item attribute based on the product attribute.
But, I don't like this approach since sales_quote_item_set_product is dispatched every time a quote item is loaded from the DB. I'd like a one time thing wherein I fetch a product attribute at the time of add to cart and add it's value in a column in quote item. Is there an event I could hook onto?
I think checkout_cart_product_add_after should be a good prospect to explore...any thoughts?
