I'm in the process of developing an app to *hopefully* control access to specific variants of a product which represent wholesale/trade pricing. I am developing this app for a current client but I hope that it may prove useful for the community as a whole.
Theory: to use Shopify's customer CRM data for user accounts (combined with a tag/indicator if a customer qualifies for trade pricing), and a variant option to indicate whether a product variant is trade price or regular/public price. Authenticating will then hide/show relevant pricing.
I'll be posting progress (read: general puzzlement and confusion) here and hopefully folks can let me know if I'm going in the right direction and I welcome any suggestions/feedback.
Wish me luck! :)
Thanks for your interest! ...however I wouldn't hold out for this at present, I'm afraid - my current client does not require it from outset, so I will be developing it in and around projects instead.
The Gatekeeper app may be your best bet for now: http://apps.shopify.com/gatekeeper
By all means keep an eye on the thread as I will update with my progress, as and when I get time to put into it.
Sorry I can't be more helpful at the moment :(
Hey there, good luck with what you are building. I am sure it is something that will be helpful for all the users. If you require any assistance or support then I would recommend an Ecommerce Development Company in India - Web Destiny Solutions.
