I'm entertaining the idea of allowing my loyal customers to receive a different price grid, the only thing is I'm not sure how to go about it.
Currently I have a module that will update all my pricing based on cost + % depending on the price range (ie 10$ - 1000$ +20%, 1001$ - 2000$ + 15%)
What I would like to do is to use a different markup for a specific customer group that would allow them to have a lower markup to encourage them to buy more.
I thought of having a seperate price attribute, but then I'd have to start modifying my cart and checkout page and wanted to check here first to see if anyone had any suggestions?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for the reply @muk_t
It's not exactly what I'm looking for - but pending another answer I might be able to get that to work.
To be clear:
Currently I have an attribute called "cost" that has my supplier cost, I then run a script that takes cost + 20% for products that cost between 10$ and 1000$, cost + 15% for product that are 1001$ to 2000$ ect.
I would need these range of markups to be done based on customer group, so 10$ and 1000$ would be 10% instead of 20% for wholesale customers.
Do you want to use this calculation to assign price to particular user group only?
I think this should be possible using custom php script.But if you have huge catalog size then this solution should not be efficient for you.
I guess I would have to modify my script to update the group price for the group I want. The only issue I have is that I've got a large catalog (as you suspected) and I don't know if there is a method to create new group prices for products that dont already have that feature enabled. For sure I can update attributes that already exist but creating new ones is another story...
Thansk for your help, you've definitely given me a better direction then where I was going.
