Aheadworks presents its new module extending the default Magento functionality with the options for controlling the visibility of the content on ecommerce websites. If you need to differentiate access to your catalog depending on a customer group, install the Aheadworks Customer Group Catalog Permissions extension for Magento 2 and add the necessary features to your store. With the help of this advanced permissions module, you decide which categories, individual products, or CMS pages to hide from particular customer groups. In this way, you can divide your store catalog between wholesalers, retailers, and other clients depending on your business requirements, as well as provide buyers with the customized offers. Besides, you can add custom text to your web store pages instead of the price or Add to Cart button, delivering specific messages to the visitors.
Below, we describe the catalog permissions module’s functionality in closer detail.
- Hide specific categories and products from particular customer groups
The extension allows merchants to manage visibility of categories and individual products based on a customer group. In this way, you can redirect visitors with disabled access to the specified category to other pages of your website, or show individual products only to selected customer groups.
- Hide CMS pages from the specified customer groups
Also, you can decide not to display some CMS pages to certain client segments, redirecting them to the pages with other information.
- Configure URLs for page redirect
For the customers with limited access to some of your website pages, you can set required page URLs to redirect them to more appropriate content and provide with the smooth shopping experience. The Customer Group Catalog Permissions extension supports both absolute and relative URLs. In the same way, you can assign redirect pages for your clients to access some hidden content.
- Customizable text messages
Another possibility provided by the Magento 2 advanced permissions extension is placing a custom text instead of a hidden product price or Add to Cart button. You can use HTML tags to create your personalized message, explaining your website visitors with limited access to some pages how they can buy the desired item. For example, you can display a message asking to log in to view some content, thus motivating them to register. Also, you could add a call for price message if you follow a differentiated selling strategy or offer a product on pre-sale.
- Manage permissions in bulk
With the catalog permissions module, you are enabled to apply mass actions to update or delete permissions. Note that the extension doesn’t put any limitations on the number of created permissions and allows deleting all existing ones at once. Moreover, it is possible to set general and individual permissions per store view, as well as assign permission for all product types.
Also, note that Customer Group Catalog Permissions doesn’t slow down your website even it has large catalog content, due to its performance-optimized design.
Aheadworks Customer Group Catalog Permissions allows users to apply flexible conditions to specific content visibility, managing access to their catalog for different customer groups in the most efficient manner. With this tool, you can take full control of the content access management on your ecommerce site for the customer-oriented shopping experience.
