Has anyone had experience with customer group pricing?

I have two groups, one dynamic (A) and the other static (B). I have listed prices for B in pother1.

My test shopper, Sam, has been allocated to group B. According to the manual (p225), when Sam logs in, he should see the prices stored pother1 for each product - but he doesn't. Instead, he sees the price for group A people (stored in 'cprice') throughout the site (in shopdisplayproducts.asp, shopaddtocart.asp, and shopcreateorder.asp).

I have turned xCustomerGroupDynamicAutoAssign to No so that it doesn't update/add another group to Sam's records (in customergroups) - and have checked/re-checked that table to be sure that Sam's customerID and group B's groupID are present.

Can anyone steer me in the correct direction to solve my problem.

I found a solution:

1. Turn on Xcustomerprices (missed that bit in the manual!)
2. In shopcustomerprices.asp, comment out newprice=ioprice at about line 31. The preceding sub (CustomerPricesInRecord) returns the correct price for group B, but then line 31 overwrites it with the original price.

Nice work !!

It's amazing that we don't get a list of known bugs emailed to us - we're doing VPASP sites all the time and it's would be a great saver of time.

Hi Ronnie an Thomas

Thanks for posting!

We have a list of fixes for known bugs at:

We will be replacing this shortly though with the VPASP 7.0 Service Pac 1 which will have all known bugs covered plus we have a number of enhancements included based on customer feedback.

We are also trying out Twitter as a medium for posting updates but we are pretty inexperienced at this though.

Our Twitter name is VPASP
