selling a monthly advertisement (with configurable product)
I was thinking of creating a configurable product to sell advertisements on a website. The idea is that I am using magento to make sure I am not selling the advertisement spot twice in the same period.
so I can make a configurable product with attributes months, create simple products and put for every month just 1 in stock.
Disadvantage of this is, I have 200 pages and 5 types that is around 12.000 combinations, thus 12.0000 simple products in the configurable product.
Is there not a better way of doing this? Like for instance grouping the attributes to be unique within the period of a year (checking the orders/invoices)
