Customer groups

Customer groups determine which discounts are available and the tax class that is associated with the group. The default customer groups are General, Not Logged In, and Wholesale.

Customer Groups

Create a customer group

NOTE
Admin users that do not have access to all websites (assigned a role with a ‘Custom’ Role Scope) cannot create, modify, or delete customer groups.
  1. On the Admin sidebar, go to Customers > Customer Groups.

  2. Click Add New Customer Group.

  3. For Group Name, enter a unique name fewer than 32 characters to identify the group.

  4. Select the Tax Class that applies to the group.

    Group Information {width="600" modal="regular"}

  5. Select the Excluded Website(s) that you want to exclude from the group.

    note important
    IMPORTANT
    Excluding websites can decrease product price and catalog rule indexing time, because excluded websites are not indexed. When a customer group is saved with an added website exclusion, the product price, catalog rule, and catalog search indexes are invalidated. If you have many products, websites, and customer groups, it is recommended that you pause the reindex process until you have excluded websites from the customer groups.

    No websites are excluded by default. To select multiple values, hold down the Ctrl key (PC) or the Command key (Mac) and click each option.

  6. When complete, click Save Customer Group.
