Manage Customers Groups

For each customer who has an account in your store, you have the option to configure a Customer Group (membership level). Customer Groups means to apply different privileges to some group of their customers. AbanteCart shopping cart allows you to provide some of your customers with access to special features:

- different discounts;

- different specials;

- tax exempt

- third party extensions may use Customer groups


You can restrict access to these features using Promotions tab on the Products page.
