Restrict purchase of certain items with User Groups?
« on: July 12, 2011, 22:41:05 pm »

I am considering using VirtueMart for my companie's online store.

We sell water treatment chemicals and equipment and would like to display all of our products that we sell, but have some items only available for purchase if the customer is part of a special registered user group.

For example, some of the chemicals we sell are HazMat chemicals with shipping restrictions. We only want these to be available to customers that have gone through a special application process, but we still want them to be visible to the general public with a message along the lines of "Must Have Special Account to Purchase" and a link to apply for such an account.

Is this possible with User Groups?

I am currently using Joomla 1.6 and plan on updating to 1.7 when it is available.
