Shopper groups limited to see/buy approved items
« on: August 03, 2011, 07:31:25 am »
I've got a fairly large catalog that serves a handful of registered clients. I'm using shopper groups to give them special pricing. I'd like to be able to give shopper groups access to only certain items, so when they're logged in, they can only see items intended for them. Can this be achieved with the core and existing extensions? Thanks.

wow   three posts today about this

here is what you need.   vm default groups will not work with out a lot of rewriting.    this will save you a lot of time and energy and is much more robust

Hi,

I have the same question as tedhawkes, really...

Does anyone know if it's possible to set access to specific product depending on shopper group?

THe documentation seems to sugggest there is some level of access control:

4.7.1. Shopper Groups
VirtueMart offers the ability to not only manage users by vendor, but also by shopper group. This
enables storekeepers to create shopper groups for whatever need (e.g. site access, customer rating, tax
display, etc.). These shopper groups can then be used to provide special services, discounts, or access
to a specific group of users. Because users and shopper groups are associated to a particular vendor,
it is important to create your vendor records before creating the user and shopper group records.

Sorry if geekhead has answered this question, the link he posted seems to lead to software subscription starting at 699 dollars, not quite what most of us are looking for, I'd imagine!

Any suggestion appreciated :)

not a subscription,    its a complicated extension for VM, which you can get it for free here  http://xclude.se/


what we offer is an installation service, it takes serious skills to install, debug, and integrate, and if you have an existing website it is extremely difficult, complicated, and time consuming to install.

but to repeat, you can get it for free here http://xclude.se/

use it with Frontend-User-Access from http://www.pages-and-items.com/extensions/frontend-user-access and you can do what you are trying to do

Hi geekhead,

Ok, I misunderstood, many thanks for the clarification. I'll give it a go, and see how I get on.

Thanks again :)
