Hello Shopify Community, 

 

I am aiming to build a website that has online content on it. 

 

The problem I am trying to solve is

 

1) How do I created a tiered pricing system in Shopify? 2) Based on the people that buy a certain package how do I only have them see a certain amount of webpages but not others? 3) I am looking to connect these tiers to Discord. I want this so that members with certain website access tiers get different access to different channels in the app.

 

Thank you

Hi @rois33 

 

You have some work to do but think all that is possible to make. You can try without any app but with a lot of custom code.

First, you would need to differentiate your customers. You do that by adding customer tags like tier1, tier2, tier3, and so on.

Then each product could have metafields with price in each tier. Then in code extend the code to show the price by checking what

the customer tag is and based on that get a price from metafields. You would also need some scripts to calculate the price in the cart/checkout.

 

But there is a better alternative, and I think you could do most of it with an app a lot of people recommend Locksmith:

Try it out and maybe check with their support if it covers all you need.

Hello Laza, 

 

I appreciate the quick response!

 

I think that answers almost all of my questions except one of them.

 

The question that still remains is how do I connect these people in different tiered systems to Discord? 

 

I want their tiers to transfer with them if they choose to enter the Discord chat. Certain tiers that login will be able view special locked channels when they authenticate into the discord app (at least that is how I have seen it before). 

 

For example, customer comes to the website and buys a premium package membership (second highest). This customer from what we have talked about should be able to be tagged and sorted by their payments into a tier group ON THE WEBSITE...

 

How do I get that customer to remain in the same status when they login on the Discord? I am looking for some sort of tool (maybe a token of some type) to identify this customer on the website AND the Discord in the same tier. Need this to work if they upgrade or downgrade their status as well. If they drop from premium to a lower channel then whatever is keeping track needs to be able to kick them out of their tiers on the website and the Discord simultaneously.

Hi @rois33 

 

I am not sure but maybe check this app, and contact the developer to see if it can help in your case.

It says you can connect customers by tags or product purchases. Also, check the Mechanic app 

https://apps.shopify.com/mechanic?ref=lightward&utm_source=mechanic&utm_campaign=task-library

It gives a lot of automation for different tasks, for example, this 

https://tasks.mechanic.dev/auto-tag-customers-upon-product-purchase

auto-tag customers when they purchase a matching product.

 

Not sure if this is exactly what you need but you can test and see if it covers your workflow.
