Catalog Permissions by aheadWorks

With the Magento Advanced Permissions extension, you can decide what customers can see on your website. The Catalog Permissions add-on is a great choice for those online merchants who want to configure the visibility of different items, product prices and even the whole categories for specified groups of customers. The module gives you a possibility to redirect customers to specific page if they don’t have enough permissions and leave a notice explaining the redirection.

The module allows you to run more targeted marketing by customizing your product catalog. Our extension enables the administrator to set up the visibility for the whole category or to assign permissions to customer groups for viewing different products within a catalog. The Magento Catalog Permissions module allows you to show “Out of Stock” notice to visitors and offer them to log in to see the price.

Live Demo:

For specified customer group(s), you can specify the visibility of:
* products
* products price
* categories

Restrict products whether to be displayed with the “Out of stock” or any other notice or just hide their price in:
* category
* product page
* compare
* wishlist
* search results list
* cross-sells, up-sells, and related products blocks

The module can be integrated with the following extensions by aheadWorks:

Can we use the extension to hide CMS pages per user group?

Asked by: dinbilnyckel
Hello, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, Catalog Permissions doesn't allow hiding products from specific customer groups. The extension works with prices, products and category pages only. Thank you.

Does this work with configurable and bundle products?

Asked by: jackaroo
Hello, the Catalog Permissions extension works with all the native Magento product types, including the Configurable and Bundled products. Thank you.

What are your options when disabling a product?

When you select a product to be disabled for a certain customer group, is the entire product invisible for all other groups or are the only options to hide price or show out of stock?
Asked by: lcartaya
Hello! Our Catalog Permissions extension offers 2 restriction modes for a product: 1. Hiding a product - in this mode, the product will be completely invisible for the customers who belong to the specified customer group (s). 2. Hiding product price - in this mode, the product will still be visible, but the price and the "Add To Cart" button will not be displayed. Instead, the admin-specified text will be shown. Thank you.

Follow-up question to "What are your options when disabling a product?"

Hi AheadWorks, We are interested to purchase this extension, but it is lacking one feature which we need. It is related to the question "What are your options when disabling a product?". Can you make it so that there is a third option: To make product + price visible, but to disable the "add to cart" button and to show a text field which asks the customer to please contact the store owner? If this addition is added to the extension, we will definitely be buying this extension!
Asked by: NLnearshore
Hello, the functionality you have described is not covered in the current version of the Catalog Permissions extension, and unfortunately, we do not have any plans for implementing such adjustment at the moment. It does seem an interesting idea, though, and it will be passed to our developers for consideration. Also note, that our extensions are Paid Open-Source products, so the functionality you are looking for can be added via customization. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from top class Product does as it should. There was a compatibility problem with another extension. This was resolved within 24 hours. Excellent service and even gave a report on the issue where other companies just say it is fixed and that is that. I will definitely look to Ahead works first if I need a new extension.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great extension and top class support! Extension was not working correctly out of the box for us. But the support resolved every conflict we had on the website. They were quick, patient and straightforward. Excellent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just would like to say: "Thank you aheadWork!" I highly recommend this company. Good support and good Extension!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent product support I had a two conflicts with this module. I turned out it was a wrong installation by my part, and a conflict with a third party module. Both these problems where solved within 1 day. I had excellent direct communication with a developer their. I therfore can recommend both this module and aheadworks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Grr - no installation notes I will review the product later. I have high hopes. But I have got a wasted evening ahead because I cannot dare install the extension i just bought without installation notes. To quote an expert on a Magento forum "The extension should come with an installation guide and if it does not then you should contact the provider." Very surprised that aheadWorks do not provide an installation guide in their download. Nothing - just files - The read me is blank and goes to a dead link. The product knowledgebase is blank. There is nothing anywhere to support you after the download. Support is closed in the evening so cannot work at all. It may be something that I can figure out but I am sure no professional would risk installing an extension on a working client site without an installation guide. If it goes wrong, I am sure that aheadWorks will be the first to say that 'you should never install an extension without an installation guide from the developer' or contacting support (which is closed) Sorry aheadWorks - i think this is very poor.
