Great extension but lacks of functions
This extension works as described and we can hide some categories or products for some customers groups.
But, it could be awesome to tell the opposite : alls products/categories are hidden for a specific customer group except for those we tell to be visible.
it's the way we need to work for a specific customer group. (and so, limit visibilty in search)
It just works!
The extension works like a charm and the support team is amazing. I recommend.
This Extension is golden! If you have wholesale accounts, this is a must
I must say, I absolutely love this extension it is exactly what I needed for wholesale accounts. Now only wholesale accounts (groups) can now view categories specified towards them only!
Great job guys! I love it!
Great extension, great customer support
This is a very good extension, well designed, and supported with regular releases & bug fixes. We had an issue during installation, which has been fixed in no-time by the excellent customer support team. Thanks so much!
Easy Instal and setup
Worked exactly as we needed forour multi store setup with complicated customer group setup. Was up and running in a relatively short period of time, now just a matter of customising ll our product for our clients.
Got it nailed!
Another thing we've got from AW, and another exact match!
Presumably, such a specific solution is not of great use for a regular store, but for our business model and diverse customers pool, it was the proper solution.
Works as expected
For our B2B website, this solution was crucial. Allows us to properly manage the catalog access for different partners.
Easy to work with, and extremely reliable too. Nice job!
Very good extension
It contains all features as they mention and also work perfectly.
Product went in like a charm for Magento 1.8 . Only had to read directions afterwards to make sure I did not forget anything. I haven't tested extensively yet, but worked as advertised on first use.
Some suggestions - allow ability to "Permit Category from Specific Customer Group" instead/as well as "Hide Category/Product from Specific Customer Group'. This would allow building more limited access stores revising permissions with each new category.

This extension flawlessly does what you expect. We are very happy.
Does its job
This module proved to be a crutial solution for the membership site we recently finished.
We had to do some tweaking to to make the module fit our requirements, but those were OUR specific requirements. The advertised functionality is delivered 100%
The real thing - simple and powerful
This extension is as reliable as all other aheadWorks modules we have. The quality of code is very high. Now all unique products of our store are shown only to the privileged group of customers. Runs cool. Thanks, guys.

Magento has great customer management and tier group pricing already built in. But in order to enable more robust role management, custom programming or a third party software extension is required. We needed to limit access to certain products and categories by customer group. This extension provided an easy to implement solution at a very reasonable price. It worked as expected. I was confident purchasing from aheadWorks as they have been creating Magento extensions since Magento first launched back in 2007.
As always; good extension and superb customer service!
I purchased this extension for our Magento shop/site a week ago. It needed however some customization to work on my cusomized template. Aheadworks rose up to the task and offered me a solution for a very small extra fee for the customization.
They truly care about their clients and go a long way to make you happy.
Good product overall... a couple of suggestions
We purchased this extension and is working good for us. Grants a good level of customisable viewing options for products and categories. I would like to make a suggestion for the next release. When you hide the purchase button on the product, it would be good if we could have the possibility of having a "request for quotation" button instead which could interact with the customer requesting more details. The button could then open-up a pop-up where the user could type in the details of his/her request.
Configurable products compatibility
Great extension. Unfortunately the catalog permissions can not hide certain children of configurable products.
I would be great if it would be compatible with "Der Modul Programierder's Better Configurable Products" extension which we use frequently for our projects.
This extension add the simple product to the cart when choosing an option from the configurable product.
Nevertheless, Catalog permissions is a great extension for people looking to hide products and/or prices from specific groups
We purchased this extension so that catalog items would not be visible to the public (only logged in / approved customers). EXACTLY WHAT WE WANTED!!!
I bought this module to solve a permissions issue I had when downgrading a store from Magento enterprise edition to the community edition. - It solved the problem I had with the missing functionality (the enterprise version has it natively). The module works smoothly, the install was simple and the price was great!
Great Support Service
I purchased this extension for my shop and I had a problem with the new version of Magento 1.6.2 and my database. The support service checked immediately the installation and fixed the problem in 1 day. They sent me a patch and explained me what was missing.
Now the extension works perfectly!
Well done AheadWorks!
Great extension! I was looking for this feature for more than a year. And I couldn´t belive how simple zu install and configure for my customers special needs. Very well dekomented, too. I changed the "not in stock" message to an individual one with the included instructions, and was no problem at all. I really recommend this extension; it´s a lot more woth than you pay for.
