I'm looking to add a subdomain soon (wholesale.MYWEBSITE.com). This site will be for my wholesale customers (obviously) and will be a direct mirror of the normal www.MYWEBSITE.com site. However, I want to use a subdomain so I can make static blocks catered to my wholesale customers.
Would I be best off creatin a whole new website, store, or store view in Magento?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Just wanted to bump this.
I've played around with a couple things, I don't want it to be a store view, because I don't want customers to be able to switch back and forth. If I create a new store on the same website, then create a store view for the new store, how do I make that work? Would I need to edit my .htaccess file to handle the redirect?
You may add wholesale customer group within your store and display special options to its members. Here are some extensions that might be useful:
Custom Options for Customer Groups- helps to offer individual custom options for each group
Shipping & Payment By Customer Groups- manage access to payment and shipping methods by groups
