Hide categories and products from customers depending on their customer groups

It often happens that you need to show several products to certain visitors of your store and hide them from other ones. How to manage Magento private sales quickly and efficiently? The answer is in this extension. Easily restrict display of products and categories for different customer groups, specify restriction actions, like redirect to 404 page, some CMS page, replace Add to cart button with Magento Call for price message etc.

Achieve your business goals

You may need to restrict access for some customer groups to certain products or categories for business or legal reasons. Show relevant Magento customer group prices for each particular customer segment, sell more and benefit from it. Avoid legal problems. Also that is a nice way to manage wholesalers and retailers you deal with.

Hide the price to boost your sales

Hide the price to boost your sales

Let’s say you have a sophisticated product which really requires a live contact with customers to be sold. To hide price in Magento and stimulate customers to contact you directly you can add to Magento the call for price block. The call for price Magento feature is also efficient when you organize presales.

Redirect certain customers from product pages to a CMS-page or 404 page

When a customer comes to the page restricted for him, you can redirect him to 404 page or CMS page. You can leave explanations on the issue on these pages, e.g. “These items are available only for registered customers. Please register to have full access to this catalog” or “This category is available only for wholesalers. Partner with us to get access to these items”. By telling customers that certain categories are for certain customer groups only, you motivate them to take the actions you need (i.e. to register).

redirect customers to a CMS-page or 404 page

Use custom variables in CMS-blocks

Since now you can inject any custom variable you need into a cms static block, e.g. you can display the store url or an address, indicate sales representative contact name or email as well as add hyperlinks to product images and categories.

Use a wide range of filters

In addition to standart Magento Enterprise functionality that enables filtering by product category, Customer Group Catalog extension allows you to apply filters in all possible lists of products such as: search results, related products, cross-sells, up-sells, category filtering, as well as custom blocks with products lists.

Configure the actions restricted for certain Magento customer groups

Highly adjustable actions to serve your needs:

  • Hide price in Magento as well as the ‘Add to cart’ button
  • Replace the price with CMS block on product view and/or category pages
  • Hide category and product links
  • Hide products from category pages with possibility to give direct product links to customers

Ability to redirect customers, who have no category permissions

You can show 404 page or a special CMS page to customers who try open product or category pages restricted for their customer group.

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.
