I would ideally have 4-5 customer groups each able to view / purchase a subset of the entire product catalog.
Hi there, if you need to restrict the display of some products depending on customer groups, you can try this extension http://amasty.com/customer-group-catalog.html. It also allows to specify restriction actions, like redirect to 404 page, some CMS page, etc.
With the module you’ll be able to:
- Set access to catalog pages based on your business needs
- Hide price block and âadd to cartâ button
- Use a cms-block instead of price
- Redirect to a CMS page or show 404 error for products
- Remove product and category links
Here you can see one of the examples of the restricted products display for particular customer group:
