The second in my series of getting to know existing contributions.
Separate Pricing Per Customer
This contribution gives the shopowner the ability to set up “groups” of customers, who have a better price than a normal customer. A typical exampe would be “retail customers” and “wholesale customers”. Wholesale customers would probably have a lower price than retail customers. There are also other options whereby the shopowner can activate and deactivate postage, payment methods etc.
This is a quite large and quite complex modification to make, especially on a store that may already have had lots of modifications. I spent over half a day installing this on a highly modified store (which included testing time). I did have a few difficulties, but got it working in the end.
Ease of Install: 5/10
Ease of Use: 5/10
How it looks: 10/10 (it does not make any major changes to how oscommerce looks)
Changes I would like to see
I felt that the customers_group page in the admin could do with a little tweak to actually show the customers that are in each group. A little like this:
You can see a list of clients (blanked out for privacy) who are part of the “trade” group. Although I have not coded this up, I have done almost the same thing on a different contribution, which is where the screenshot comes from.
