Managing category visibility by customer group

You can easily manage category visibility for specific customer groups in the Admin Panel, under Catalog -> Manage Categories -> Edit mode of any category -> Permissions tab.

Notes

  • When hiding the price for configurable or grouped products, you only need to hide the parent item (not the associated simple child products).
  • Configurable or grouped products that have a hidden price do not display any options (e.g. color, size, units, etc.).
  • Item numbers do not appear on the product detail page when price is hidden.
  • Hiding a category will only hide the navigation, not the individual products. Shoppers will still be able to search for products, see related products (including cross-sells & upsells), etc. In order to completely hide a product from a specific customer group throughout the entire store, you must hide the product via the Product Editor (on the Permissions tab in Catalog / Manage Products in the NRO Admin Panel).
