Magento 2 Catalog Permissions for Magento 2.2.x, 2.3.x, 2.4.x CE/EE/B2B/Cloud/ Adobe Commerce 2.2.x, 2.3.x, 2.4.x

Problems

With the products whose prices are good or discounted, the store owner would like to give the priority to only wholesalers. Therefore, only the wholesalers can see and access the information about these products and make purchases. This works as a way for a store owner to express the appreciation and maintain the relationship with the loyal and important customer groups.

The catalog restriction allows store owners to set visibility to suit the business situation and shopping seasons. For example, when the stock quantity of a product is small, these products will be visible to only important customer groups.

Customers can view appropriate categories, product or page information when they go shopping on the store site. Hence, they can focus better and avoid being distracted and confused by a number of irrelevant factors.

Solutions

  • Give access priority to build up the relationship
  • Target products to relevant customer group(s)
  • Apply suitable sales strategies in different situations
  • Share sensitive information with particular customer groups
  • Focus on relevant information
  • Gain purchase priority on special occasions
  • Have better shopping experience

Set category permissions for customer group

As one of the typical features, Magento 2 Catalog Permissions helps stores divide category visibility between different customer groups. For instance, watches is a high-end and limited category, so the store owner would like to show it to only special groups.

The categories can be visible or hidden to specific groups such as wholesalers, retailers or any other client segments. The configuration is very easy with clicking and selecting actions and the restriction will be set properly.

Restrict products by customer group

Besides restricting customer groups to access specific categories, Mageplaza Catalog Permission also supports to set visibility to individual products.

In details, with a product, the store owners can select customer groups who are not allowed to view the product information. In other words, the product will be hidden to specific clients, because of product features, other purposes or in some special cases.

Limit access to CMS pages/ blocks

CMS pages and CMS blocks are also supported with customer group restriction function.

For example, with the sensitive content such as Return & Refund Policy, Commission Policy, etc, store owners would like to restrict access to guest visitors or even retailers and only allow wholesalers to access.

For example, with the sensitive content such as Return & Refund Policy, Commission Policy, etc, store owners would like to restrict access to guest visitors or even retailers and only allow wholesalers to access.

Get redirected if being restricted

The one who are not allowed to access specific content will be redirected to the replaced information. The redirect URL can be configured with ease from the admin backend. Store admins can add any forwarding URL with their purposes. Some suggestions can be:

Mageplaza
Redirect to Home page
Mageplaza
Redirect to 404 page
Mageplaza
Redirect to a notification page about access permission

URL Direction will keep restricted customers remaining shopping time on the store site or simply help them get notified of catalog permission clearly.

Set valid time for catalog restriction

Store owners can set the time in which the restriction is valid. This feature is helpful when stores would like to limit access in specific cases such as special holiday, peak seasons.

For example, in the peak season and when the product quantity is not large, the store only shows the products to logged-in customers.

Plain text, no HTML tags.

Use case 1: Target products for relevant buyers

Business goals:

  • Set special visibility for products to increase purchases

Default Magento technical limitations:

  • A default Magento store lacks the ability to change items' restrictions for consumers.

Solutions:

  • Provide the ability to select which customer groups are not allowed to view an item
  • Give you the feature to hide irrelevant products.
  • For example, if you sell both male and female items, you can restrict so only gender-related items are available for viewing.

Use case 2: Apply suitable sales strategies with timers for restriction

Business goals:

  • Use product visibility as a strategy to tackle different situations, such as peak seasons, holidays, etc.

Default Magento technical limitations:

  • You can't change the restrictions or the period of the restriction rules.

Solutions:

  • Let admins set the time in which the restrictions are valid.
  • For example, during the peak season and a product category doesn't have enough quantity, you can set the category to be only visible to customers from within the same country and save shipping efforts

Use case 3: Set category permissions for specific groups of customers

Business goals:

  • Change category visibility for different types of visitors.
  • Build up the relationship with special groups of customers.

Default Magento technical limitations:

  • You simply can't give different access privileges to customers.

Solutions:

  • Enable restrictions so only specific groups can view a category.
  • You can divide customers into wholesalers, retailers, or any other segment.
  • For example, if you have a category of shoes that is only available to order in large quantities, you can set restrictions so the shoes will only be available for wholesalers on the website.

Use case 4: Limit the visitors' access to certain pages and blocks

Business goals:

  • Extend the restriction applications to other parts of the website
  • Make sure customers only receive the suitable content.

Default Magento technical limitations:

  • It's impossible to limit the pages and blocks' access with the default Magento backend.

Solutions:

  • Support admins to restrict pages and blocks with certain customer groups.
  • For example, you can limit sensitive content such as Return & Refund Policy or Commission Policy so guest visitors won't be able to see. Only when they sign up and they start seeing these policies for purchasing

Use case 5: Redirect restricted visitors

Business goals:

  • Take restricted visitors to other pages
  • Reduce the annoyance of restriction to have a better shopping experience.

Default Magento technical limitations:

  • You can't set a certain URL for a group of visitors or customers.

Solutions:

  • Provide URL Direction so limited visitors will see replaced pages or content.
  • For example, if buyers don't have permission to view a product because they haven't reached a tire yet, you can guide them to another product of the same category and notify them about the program.
