Can I show UPS as an option only for CERTAIN customer groups?

Can I show UPS as an option only for CERTAIN customer groups?

Just like it says in my subject; I want to have my wholesale customer group be the only people to see UPS shipping options at all.  Can this be done?   Ive tried a few of the basic (free) shipping extensions but they all seem to be set for 'flat rate' style shipping tables, I still need the weight to go out and hit the UPS API and pull down our correct shipping price by weight to present to the customer.

 

Thanks!

Re: Can I show UPS as an option only for CERTAIN customer groups?

 Hi,

 

You have two options here:

 

Use a Magento extension such as this one: https://amasty.com/shipping-payment-by-customer-group.html

 

 

Or edit the code yourself like this: 

 

Use any shipping module and customize the method ( Matrixrate is very good module )

And Modify collectRates() method in ( ../model/Carrier/{ShippingMethod}.php )

 

public function collectRates(Mage_Shipping_Model_Rate_Request $request){
.....$customer = Mage::helper('customer')->getCustomer();$group = null;
if($customer)
{    $group = $customer->getGroupId();
}
if($group == 'ID'){
// do the logic here 
}else{
return false; // disable the shipping method
}
......
}

method to check on the customer group and return rate or false;
