This module is framed to manage your products display as per your guest users and registered users. By installing this module you can manage your customers and restrict their access to the specific product categories on your website. Here customer groups can be created beside the two default customer groups. The product category is selected for a particular customer group, such that users of the group can get access to all those products under the selected category. There can be multiple product categories assigned to a single customer group. The same way you can assign multiple customer groups to a single user. This module helps you to segregate the users into different customer groups.
- Customer group restricts access to the specific product category for a different set of users.
- There are two default customer groups – Public group and customer group.
- A new customer group can be created.
- A single user can be present in multiple customer groups.
- There can be multiple product categories assigned to a single customer group.
Once the module is installed go to sales, under configuration settings you will find customer group. Select the customer group, then two default customer groups will appear. One is the Public group whose default settings are such that all the product categories assigned to this group will be visible to the guest/ visitors/ unregistered customers on the website. The other default group is the customer group whose default settings are such that once the guest user gets registered onto the website, then the user automatically becomes the part of a default customer group. Product categories assigned to this default customer group would be visible only to the registered customers/ users on the website.
You can create a new customer group, go to customer group> create new customer group. There can be any number of customer groups as per your need. A user can be present in multiple groups at a time. Different customer groups can be formed having the multiple product categories. Customer group is created with a view to limit the access of all the customers to a specific product category.
Product category can be managed according to the users. Users segregated under the same customer group get access to the particular product category assigned to that customer group. This way you can manage to showcase products according to the users placed in the particular customer group.
By this, you can also limit the access to a specific product category by all the customers.
You can simply assign customer group to a user by going on to settings, there you have user option on the left-hand side. Select your user and there you will find the option of the customer group. Select the drop down arrow you will get the created customer group, here you can assign multiple customer groups to a single user.
