Gather extra info on some products

Hi there

Making a dealer product catelogue, where the dealer will order on behalf of his customers.

doing so, on 3 of the products, when ordering the product, further information should be stored (tied together with the product) from the retail customer, like serial no. name and adress of the retail client.

If the retail customer needs assistance, the dealer will to be able to retrieve the product and the extra retail user information, based on a search.

Whats the best way to go about making this twist on a product catelogue.

add a new column, or columns, to the cart object for this extra information.

In the add to cart button behavior, for the products that need this extra information added, set these columns to be up dateable from a text field.

This wil store the customer information in the cart along with the other item info.

in the order details table, you'll need to add columns for the extra columns added to the cart.

in the store order details behavior, you will need to bind the new cart columns to the new database columns.
