Category Specific Access Restriction (CSAR)

Average Rating: 5
Description
The standard Zen Cart installation can be configured in Admin _ Configuration _ Customer Details asf:

Customer Shop Status - View Shop and Prices
Customer must be approved to shop
0= Not required
1= Must login to browse
2= May browse but no prices unless logged in
3= Showroom Only

Selecting any of these options assigns conditions 0-3 globally, meaning that every single category / product detail page is treated the same way.

This mod allows you to specify individual categories which can only be accessed by authorized customers (conditions 1 or 2). The prices of these categories are hidden and the 'Buy Now' button is replaced with '..more info..'

These categories can be configured via admin and the configuration is stored in the database.

The whole store continues to work as normal, customers can browse, see prices, add products to the cart and check out - with the exception of the specified categories.

Category Specific Access Restriction (CSAR)   -   Version: 2.0 (CSAR)
Version 2.0 of this plugin now allows you to ....

> hide prices of selected categories if the customer is not logged in. The prices of these categories are hidden and the 'Buy Now' button is replaced with 'Login for price'

> specify selected categories which can only be accessed by privileged customers, for example paid-up members. The customer must be logged in AND the customer must be individually authorized by the store owner to access the selected category / categories. Just being logged in does not automatically grant access to these 'privileged' categories. The authorization is done via the Admin > Customers file.

> specify manufacturers whose products are hidden and are only accessible by customers with special 'privileges'. This can be useful if the manufacturer imposes such a restriction upon online stores or if the range of their products is of sensitive nature.

These categories and manufacturers can be configured via admin and the configuration is stored in the database.

Please note that you cannot upgrade from version 1.0

Version 2.0 is *NOT* compatible with the original version 1.0 and has *NOT* been tested on the Zen Cart 1.3x series.

This mod has been tested to work with Zen Cart v1.3.9 but may work with prior versions - use at your own peril, better though: upgrade to v1.3.9
