Product Visibility by User Role for WooCommerce Pro plugin lets you show/hide WooCommerce products depending on customer’s user role.
Start by visiting “General” options section in “WooCommerce > Settings > Product Visibility by User Role > General”. Here you can choose how products should be hidden:
- Hide catalog visibility
- This will hide selected products in shop and search results. However product still will be accessible via direct link.
- Make non-purchasable
- This will make selected products non-purchasable (i.e. product can't be added to the cart).
- Modify query
- This will hide selected products completely (including direct link).
- Hide menu items
- Hides menu items from empty product categories. Only categories/tags marked in bulk settings will be hidden. This option uses the
- Hide products terms
- Hides products categories and tags from being displayed on front-end. Only categories/tags marked in bulk settings will be hidden. This option works filtering terms from
- This will redirect invisible products to a page different from 404.
- Default: None
After that you can you can set included or excluded user roles for each product individually – go to product’s edit page and locate “Product visibility” meta box:
- Admin products list column
- This will add "User Roles" column to the admin products list.
- Product quick edit
- This will add "User Roles" options to the product quick edit screen.
- Products bulk edit
- This will add "User Roles" options to the products bulk edit screen.
Pro version also allows you to set user roles visibility options in bulk (for multiple products at once, product categories or product tags). In “WooCommerce > Settings > Product Visibility by User Role > Bulk Settings” you can set which products, product categories or tags are visible or invisible to certain role. If you fill in “Visible” option, then users with selected role will be able to see only chosen products. If you fill in “Invisible” option, then chosen products will be hidden for users with that role. If you leave any of the options empty – option will be ignored (i.e. all products will be visible).
