How to Set Customer Specific Pricing in WooCommerce

Listen to this article

Customer Specific PricingAs an eCommerce store owner you might want to define product rates based on specific users. You might want to give certain existing customers improved pricing options over others. For example, if a certain mug costs $20 you might want to sell the mug to a particular customer from the list of existing customers for $17. WooCommerce does not allow users to do so. Hence, there is a need for an extension for WooCommerce. Customer Specific Pricing is a plugin which offers to do just that.
