I have a Magento 1.9 shop containing ~22000 products. Products are added/updated/deleted every night.
There are certain products that are more attractive for us to sell because the margin is higher. We do not communicate to our customer that certain products are preferred. These products change on a weekly basis.
I have two questions:
- How do I internally mark a product as "preferred"?
- How do I make sure that a preferred product shows up first in the search results, while not showing the customer it's preferred?
Let's say I have two products that belong to the same category but have a different brand.
Product A - Category 1 - Brand X Product B - Category 1 - Brand Y (Preferred)
If someone searched for products in category 1 at this moment, it would not show a certain preferred product first.
I would like it to show Product B, the preferred product, first. Followed by the rest.
How do I accomplish this?
