How to setup different customer groups in Magento 2

Customer Groups in Magento 2 is a feature that allows you to separate your customers into groups and set various discounts, exchange different information, and build different custom rules for them. It boosts your store’s efficiency and helps you to give a more tailored experience for your site visitors. 

This article will guide you on how to set up customer groups in Magento 2, assign a customer to a customer group, and utilize the different customer groups in your business.


To start the process to set up customer groups in Magento 2, go to Customers > Customer Groups and then click the Add New Customer Group option.


Then, secondly, name the customer group.

Select the Tax Class to which clients in this customer group belong. The entire tax amount will then be computed depending on the client, product class, and tax laws.

Setting customer group pricing in Magento 2:

Magento has two comparable features for setting differential prices – catalogue rules and group pricings – and both can provide similar outcomes. So, how do you decide which to use in this or that situation? Lets break it down:

It is better to apply catalogue rules to entire product categories or the entire shop. While on the other hand, group price is more beneficial when applied per product and for a specific set of clients.

– Go to Catalogue > Products 

– Open the Edit mode for the product for which you wish to create a tiered price.

– Below the Price section, click the Advanced Pricing caption.

– Fill in the mentioned sections i.e. Special Price, Cost, Special Price From (the date range special price is valid), Website and Customer group to whom the promotion will apply Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price, Display Actual Price.

When done, click “done” in the top right corner.

Customer Group Price Rules:

Tier Price is a feature of customer groups in Magento 2 that enables you to create customer group discounts based on the amount of goods purchased. It pushes clients to buy more in order to receive a discount.

CMS Block Display Restrictions:

CMS blocks are commonly used to provide a discount or to provide essential information with your clients. However, not all deals will be as appealing to one group of clients as they are to another.

As a result, you may configure the CMS blocks and pages’ display rules and specify which customer groups will see them.

Cart Price Rules:

Cart Price Rules are used in Magento 2 to give discounts to clients depending on certain situations. Customer Group is one of the options available when defining the cart price rule.

Even if some consumers meet the parameters of the cart price rule, they will not be eligible for the discount since it is only available to a certain customer group.
