Wholesale Pricing Integration
Requirements: MM5 9.8+ / ftp access to your stores mivadata folder.
Benefits of the module/integration: a
Your client can login and get the price you've negotiated or assigned to them. You can have unlimited amount of price lists. In other words: Client A can get Product A for $99.95. Client B can get Product A for $109.95 while the customer that hasn't negotiated with you and logs in, or not, gets the default price of Product A at $129.95.
How this solution works:
During install, the module creates example files, customer.dat and pricelist.dat. The Admin or store operator edits these files and places them back in the /ids/wp/ folder -- via FTP. You add Customer logins and a price list filename to the customer.dat file. The customer.dat filename is assigned in the System admin. Also, the filename doesn't have to be customer.dat. On Linux/Unix(and maybe some Winserver configs), you will need to beware of case in the filenames. We suggest to keep lowercase filenames.
The pricelist.dat is the referenced file that stores the prices of any or all the products available to this list. There can be more than one list -- as many as you need. The customer.dat points the specific user to a a specific list. The list stores specific prices to specific products.There is no calculation in terms of percentages, etc.
When your customer/client logs in, they will see the product price display based on the assigned list. If the user is in the customer.dat file with an assigned pricelist filename, product price will be from the price list instead of the MM product database. If a product is NOT in the assigned list, the products displayed price will be the default from the stores product database. If the user isn't in your customer.dat, they will only see default pricing from the stores products database.
