Private Product Categories

Let’s say you have some customers or customer groups to whom you want to offer special discounts or sell specific product lines you do not make available for the rest of your clientele or from whom you want to hide particular categories or subcategories.

On your B2B Wave eCommerce platform, you can make product categories and subcategories private to specific customers or groups to accommodate these nuances. Let’s see how you can do this:

Step 1. Go to the Product Categories menu on your Admin Panel.

Step 2. Select the category or subcategory you want to make private.

Step 3. On the “Edit category” page that opens, look for the “Access” tab

Here you will find the following options:

Private Check this box to make the category or subcategory private
Customers  Type the name(s) of the customer(s) who can access and order this product on your storefront. This field will appear if you check the “Private” option
Privacy groups Enter the name(s) of the privacy groups that can access this category/subcategory, if applicable. This field will appear if you check the “Private” option
Exclude customer(s) from accessing category Add the name(s) of the customer(s) from whom you wish to hide this category or subcategory, if applicable 
Subcategories inherit access settings If this is a parent category, check this option to make its subcategories private. Otherwise, leave this option unchecked

Step 4. Click “Save” to store your privacy options and make the specific category or subcategory available to certain customers.
