Treat customers differently and offer them products at flexible prices with the help of this Magento extension. Choose individuals and assign groups of customers to display them different price labels of the same product. The price status can be limited by time or activated on a constant basis.

Key features:

  • Setting different price levels for customers;
  • Flexible price for individuals and groups of customers;
  • Settings special prices for bundle and grouped products;
  • Setting price dates;
  • Displaying product price upon registration.

When do you need to install Magento Flexible Prices extension? Anytime, when you want to deal with customers, imitating real-life communication. Despite numerous advantages of eCommerce and its well-coordinated process of trading, it still lacks one important human factor – the opportunity to agree on prices, or bargaining. Magento Flexible Prices solves the issue.

You may select clients and combine them in groups to show price visible only for them. Other customers will see other price values. Specify price duration for every customer by setting the date of its display or leave it without changes for a long time.

How to use

Now let’s have a look at how the module actually works and how your flexible prices will look directly on your website frontend.

Once you set up flexible prices for a particular customer or group of customers and saved your configurations the new prices will automatically become available online. They will show up both on category and product pages in accordance with the settings you have chosen.
