I'm interested in setting up the Odoo website/e-commerce system for various distributors' websites. This would require me to allow the products to be displayed with general information (ie. product pictures, description,etc.) without pricing to the general public (ie. those that are not logged in). I would then need to be able to provide a login for pre-approved accounts to allow wholesalers to login and see their own pricing according to their pricelist rules and allow them to add to cart/quote which would trigger a RFQ or sales order in Odoo v8.
Unfortunately there is not much information regarding the website/e-commerce module available currently due to the fact Odoo v8 is still in alpha.
I believe this would be extremely useful for distributors to be able to display their products without pricing unless a pre-approved account is setup for them to login. It is possible to do with Magento with various extensions such as the B2B Extension for Magento found here:
or by editing the local.xml file in various theme packages in Magento by using the <customer_logged_in> and <customer_logged_out> tags to provide conditional logic based on those two situations.
I have been looking for a way to either connect Magento (CE 1.8/1.9) to Odoo (v8) by means of a connector (currently there is nothing available) or be able implement this with the current Odoo E-commerce/Website module (preferred). If anyone has any insight on this please comment below as I would appreciate any input on this.
