What exactly does the Customer Group Shipping Rules module do?
The Customer Group Shipping Rules Module will enable pre-approved customers to access otherwise hidden Shipping Methods on your BigCommerce site by creating permissions between Customer Groups and Shipping Methods.
Can I add rules or restrictions to multiple Shipping Methods?
Yes! You can simply create a new rule assigned to any Shipping Method, allowing for thorough mapping of Customer permissions between Customer Groups and Shipping Methods.
Can I create groups of Customer Groups?
Not exactly, but you can use our ‘partial match’ feature to create rules that apply to more than one Customer Group.
Let’s say you create a new ‘Freight’ Shipping Method, and want to offer this method to multiple Customer Groups, but not all. By naming each group with a key phrase, such as ‘Wholesale,’ you can now create a rule that applies to all Customer Groups with ‘Wholesale’ in the name, and grant those groups access to Freight Shipping. Other Customer Groups that do not have the word ‘Wholesale’ in the name will not be able to see Freight Shipping, even if they have access to other Shipping Methods that the wholesale groups also have access to.
Can I have a form on my website that will let Customers apply to be approved for this conditional access?
Yes, our in-house developers are available for Work Orders, billed hourly, to make any change that you need to your website. By request, we can show you examples of other BigCommerce sites that have had us implement this feature.
Can I see a live example on another Ebizio customer's website?
Unfortunately, since you are not a part of the approved Customer Group, you will not be able to see the Shipping Methods on a live site example. Please refer to the video above for an example.
