In the beginning of 2015 we looking for a customization for Virtuemart 3.0 (Joomla 3.3.x or 3.4.x if it has gone live by the date the customization starts).
We have a Webshop which sells products to libraries in Sweden. Behind the webshop it's an ERP system which handles all our pricing before they update the webshop.
The ERP system got the price from the vendors updated every night (direct insert into database). So, we don’t do anything regarding price updates or adding products via backend in Virtuemart.
In this case we have a contract customer which have in their contract that users (shoppers) shall be able to see the contracted price (the contracted price is the same for all DVD movies or CD records even if normal price could be different for different DVDs or CDs.
I need a pricing functionality which overrides the normal price for a user group and the price could be set in the Parent Product Category and be valid for all subcategories. This would be nice because every night new products are added and then we don’t have to update the price for the contract user groups.
Parent Category = DVD Movies, User group = Contract1001, Price = $10, User group = Contract1002, Price = $10.50
The price should be valid for the subcategories where the products are placed: Horror, Thriller, History, etc.
We have a solution but the text didn't fit into this field.
We need a fix price for this, right now we don't know exactly when the project will start but sometime between January and March 2015.
Can you help us?
