Benefits

Attracting new customers and sustaining the interest of the registered ones has nothing to do with a mid-range approach. As a Magento store owner, you know that many vendors choose to talk in an impersonal way with their audience. However, this is a poor selling strategy, which is not just a waste of efforts but also the loss of the benefits.


We don’t offer a whole new approach here but put emphasis on customizing your selling tactics by:

(a) splitting your store visitors into special interest groups (‘Not logged in’, ‘General’, ‘Wholesale’, ‘Retailer’, etc.);

(b) devising various customer group rules (price, catalog, product) for each of them.

This can allow you to adapt your selling strategy to the specific needs of the groups. With our extension, you can provide private sales by creating rules even for an individual customer. You will be able to set selective access to your store catalog, products, and pricing. This will motivate your Magento 2 visitors to log in to call for a price or see a complete catalog version, which, in turn, brings the sales and customer conversion to another qualitative stage.

Why Magento 2 Customer Group Catalog matches your business needs?

When running a Magento 2 store corresponding to different audiences, you may want to show different trade prices to various visitors or let them buy on a wholesale basis.

Thus, selling goods for partners you can show retail prices only or even hide product prices from unregistered visitors.

You may encourage a regular customer(s) with special offers or hide the entire catalog from non-registered visitors to prevent an unauthorized access.

For this purposes, dividing your Magento 2 clients into customer groups is a way round the problem. With a mere shifting of native settings, you are able to add new groups and use mass action to assign customers to them.

However, it’s not enough for creating a focused selling strategy. And this is where our Magento 2 module for managing price & products by customer groups comes to the rescue.

How to control Magento 2 customer group pricing with our extension?

To specify price display for different groups use the extension rule settings.

You will be able to:

  • hide price from a certain group of customers;
  • add a link instead of price;
  • replace price with an image or any custom CMS block;
  • create conditions your customers should meet to get access to price;
  • configure price range for a new rule.

How to configure the catalog price rules in Customer Group Catalog?

Step 1: Create Customer Conditions to show price to a specific customer group


  • Navigate to Customers>Rules and click the Add New Rule button:

magento 2 customer group catalog

  • Fill in the rule information and go to Customer Conditions:

magento 2 customer group catalog

Create conditions your customers should meet to get access to price information (e.g.: female users on the main website).

Step 2: Set up Price Range for better catalog products filtering


  • After you made Categories settings of the new rule, go to Additional Filtering Options menu:

magento 2 customer group catalog

  • Enable the Price Range option to set up the price range for the rule: By Price, From Price, To Price.

Step 3: Hide price from a certain group of customers


  • Having set up Product Conditions for a new rule, navigate to Actions settings:

magento 2 customer group catalog

  • Here you can set Hide Price to Yes for not to display it to a previously configured customer group.

Step 4: Replace price for a custom text, link or image block


  • Set Hide Price to the Replace with text option in the Actions menu.

  • Choose one of the default blocks for product and category pages that will be displayed on the frontend instead of price:


  • You can also create a custom block in advance and choose it from the drop-down menu while configuring a new rule.

  • To design a custom block, go to the Content>Blocks> then choose a desired block, for example, Call for price, and select to Edit it:
magento 2 customer group catalog

  • Change the title and content if needed, add images or links you want and click the Save Block button.

Step 5: Replace price for a request form

  • For this, choose Replace price for select from in the Display Options of the Actions menu and save the changes:


With the extension for altering price & products by customer groups, you can also configure Magento 2 price visibility per an individual customer. This will help you manage personalized marketing campaigns and show that you care about the clients. In order to do that, you need to use the Customer Conditions setting. For example, you can choose the customer ID, first, middle or last name to make the rule work for an individual customer only.

Wrapping up

These catalog price rules settings, in general, are enough to design and maintain your products price visibility in accordance with the needs of a specific customer group and the selling strategy. If price customization is not the only feature you are looking for, you can also opt for other module opportunities. This Magento 2 extension allows you to restrict products by customer group and make separate products visible to a specific group only. Let’s consider the detailed setup below.

How to restrict products visibility by customer groups in Magento 2?

There are cases when you need to make special products visible to one customer group only. Say, you decide to create a ‘club membership’ for regular buyers and give the members an access to exclusive products, special price goods and other ‘club’ perks. In this case, customizing your catalog visibility is a right solution.

Catalog price rules, as well as shipping cart price rules, can be restricted by customer group with the native Magento 2 settings (Promotions>Catalog Price Rules or>Shopping Cart Price Rules).

However, the possibilities are not enough to restrict specific products (categories or even store views) by customer group. But the good news is we know that the module can help you with that.

How to customize your catalog visibility w/t Customer Group Catalog?

Step 1: Allow access to store pages by customer groups


  • Provide selective access to different category and product pages for particular customer groups. For this, go to Edit Rule and make changes to Display Options and Restrict Action sections:

magento 2 customer group catalog

Step 2: Hide various category and product pages elements


  • In the Edit Rule menu, restrict the visibility of the ‘Add to wish list’, ‘Add to compare’ buttons to motivate customers to register or perform the other actions you may need:


This is how the option will work on the frontend:


magento 2 customer group catalog

Step 3: Redirect customers of the group that can’t access the category


  • When the product category is restricted to a specific Magento 2 customer group you can redirect them to a certain CMS or 404 page. To make the settings, switch to Edit Rule menu and disable the Allow Direct Links:


  • Then set Action on Forbid to show the 404 page.

  • If you need to redirect the group to a certain CMS page, set Action on Forbid to Redirect to CMS Page and CMS page redirect to to the destination address:


When you have some specific requirement for customer groups segmentation, you may find the next two features useful too. You can also hide navigation attributes of the restricted products, and give direct links to products that are hidden from the category.


Wrapping up

The actions configurations are good for establishing a one-to-one approach in terms of customer groups. You can achieve a desired product visibility by customer group and keep your sales management under control. Create a limitless number of rules to customize your catalog view for various needs and give your ‘club members’ additional possibilities.

Don't you still know for sure? The extension functionality doesn’t stop there, and the next section will spill the secrets of admin settings.

Need faster support
The mod works ok, however it took me some time to fine tune the settings. I wrote to support a few times, the managers were helpful but quite slow to reply which was a little disappointing.

Support Configuring Extensions
Ten out of Ten. The support team is very efficient, knowledgeable and above all have got tons of patience. I have bought many Amasty extensions for M1 and now moving on to M2 we still keep on buying Amasty extensions. They have got a great bunch of extensions which meet our requirements. They are innovative and do bring out some good functioning extensions. I am very happy to recommend Amasty and the whole support team wholeheartedly. Great company and great people.

very good support
Kiril Osipov is a very friendly support manager, and I was happy to work with him. He answered all my questions before and after the purchase.
There was a glitch with products visibility because my theme is free. Amasty fixed the issue and explained why my theme is not very good. I changed the theme and some other glitches are now gone.
Your help is very appreciated by small business owners that are not technical specialists.

3 modules in one pack
This module is a real catch for vendors like me. We run our store for both wholesale and retail customers, so the option to regulate prices for different customer groups was like a breath of fresh air. Apart from that the ability to hide price appeared to be very useful as well.

The support team did their best and assisted in the module configuration. We are happy with the purchase!

I'm totally satisfied
The module is ok, but the support is even better! They never hide their heads in the sand and are ready to acknowledge their slips and immediately eliminate them, unlike many other developers who seem to forget about you once you paid for their extension. So, they are very serious guys whom you can trust.

Higher than average
I was really surprised when the app stared working right out of the box. It ideally suited my custom theme and ran flawlessly without any issues. But when I updated Magento version up to 1.9.1 and changed my current theme, the app refused working properly.

Fortunately, the support appeared to be very helpful and fixed everything within a couple of hours. Anyway, you never know whether the app will work for this or that custom theme on not - it's like a lottery game. That's why I give this app only 4 stars.

Great deal
While others purchase call for price or hide price plugins, we simply enjoy using all these and other features in this plugin. I think the price is absolutely reasonable for its quality. We've been running the plugin for 3 months and it works like a charm! Keep on working guys, we do love your plugins ;)

Does what is says and more!!!
The extension is simple to configure and works as documented... When we required some tweaking due to our custom theme the developers bent over backwards to get things working just the way we wanted...
Great extension, great support!!!

Handy tool for reasonable price!
Easy to use, very helpful tool. This is the first time when I've managed to do all the settings by myself without contact support. The plugin is really good and definitely worth the money I paid for it.

Perfect functionality
I investigated different module for such functionality. In Amasty I like that I can both manage products and categories as well as do different manipulations with the price. My store is contacting both with retailers and wholesalers - we devide the catalog to suit the needs of both customer groups.

OMG! We sell more with this extension!
Some time ago we had a problem. Customers came to a product page, spent much time on the page but didn't perform a purchase. We also have a physical store and sales managers, so we decided to make the customer call us. How? - was the next question. We removed price from the page and tested different Call-to-Actions instead of it. And one of our attempts was successfull!!!

Thanks to this extension that we could bring marketing dreams into technical reality.

Had an issue with category being visible after that was disabled with this module. All the other blockings worked fine. Amasty fixed the compatability issue that was causing the issue on my custom theme.

GREAT support and a brilliant module for those that need this functionality.
