I am new to Magento. In fact, just today!

One option that I wanted in using ZenCart was to be able to list certain products that were viewable to everyone, but only Purchasable by certain customers.

Any help would be great.

Also, a side note. I am with hostmonster. What is a good, fast host for magento?

It is found at magestore.com. It is called “Catalog Permission”

Hi!

You can easily do it with Customer Group Catalog extension.Manage visibility of specific categories and products by customer groups. Configure product price visibility on product and category pages.

-Hide price block and ‘add to cart’ button
-Use a cms-block instead of price
-Redirect to a CMS page or show 404 error for products
-Remove product and category links.

For more details, userguide and live demo please follow the link http://amasty.com/customer-group-catalog.html
