Encourage your trusted clients.

You can give privileges to the customers with whom you have special relationships. E.g. let them have free shipping on any order or allow to use cash on delivery payment method.

Restrict or allow methods via mass action

It’s possible to restrict or allow Magento payment methods per selected customer groups. This feature can save you lots of time if you need to manage many groups. You can use just one option instead of revising all the settings.

Works Great thanks to Amasty Support
This extension does a great job if you want to limit shipping methods based on customer type. For instance having different rates / methods for wholesale vs. retail customers.
It didn't work initially with the Amasty OPC extension, but their support was able to quickly fix the issue and supplied the patched files. They were life savers in getting this fixed under a short deadline.
Great extension, great support!

Outstanding Customer Service
I purchased this module, along with another module. I ended up not needing the modules. Amasty were fantastic. They refunded my money right away. If it turns out I need a module Amasty will be the first developer I will go to. Thanks Amasty!

Simple but effective - support outstanding
Extension is good and works well in CE 1.9.1
Not used any extension from these guys before and took over development where one was in use. These guys provided superb support even over Christmas and New Year and have solved my issue.
They are polite, responsive and understand - this for me is what you really pay for as many extensions do similar things.
thanks again guys

Simple extension
Simple extension, it does what it says, I’ve been using it for a lot of time, more than a year I think.
We own a make-up store, and there is a special group of clients that are make-up artists and we allowed fre e shipping and cash payment because they buy tons of stuff. The module supports third party shipping extensions which is great. Had several compatibility issues at the beginning, everything solved for now. Maybe too pricey as new features are not added.

Need some updates
This extension is very old and have some bugs. I have bought it only for payment options but when I have analyzed Amasty's all extensions I have mentioned that they have Payment Restrictions. When I changed my extension to Payment Restriction everything works great. I think that if this extension has some updates it can be a good product for the market. A lot of magento owners need such solution.

We are glad to us this solution
I think that the name of the extension speaks for itself. Great features to divide the different shipping and payment opportunities for customer groups. If you have reliable customers it is good both for you and your customers to choose a suitable shipping or payment options, for example pay on cash, who not?
That's why we conclude to make life a bit easy for our regular customers. It is not a miracle that they write thanks to us.

Good but need more features
The extension is great but something is missing here. Nevertheless it is great tool for each web store which has a lot of different customers groups.

Add features and will be great
The extension gives me the opportunity to create different shipping and payment for each my store customer group. But it seems that better to use it in combination with Amasty Shipping Restriction and Payment Restrictions extensions. Then it has more sense of this extension. Only for this reason I will give 4 stars to the extensions. There is a feeling that something is missing.

Have a nice day,

Try and will be pleased
It is very convenient that with the extension we have the possibility to offer different shipping conditions for different customers. Now we can set good shipping conditions for our VIP customers or even offer them free shipping.
Without any doubts the extension has big potential which can be use for different cases.
Also we are planing to use the extension for our wholesalers to offer them different shipping methods and a big variety of payment methods to choose.
And it should be mentioned that the percentage of our finished purchases has been increased twice.
We are convinced that it is "must have" extension for each who has lots of customer groups.
