I've put together a blurb to show logged out customers what they can pay if they create an account and log in.

Some of our products don't have a lower price so I want to omit the blurb for products that don't have a lower price when logged in. I tried a conditional to look for conditions where the product prices were different between the two states.

<!-- Add price discount code here -->
<?php if(!Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->isLoggedIn()): ?>
<?php $_productA = $this->getProduct();
$_productB = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->load($_productA->getId());  
if ($_productB != $_productA ) {
echo '<p>If you were logged in,<br />your price would be: $'.round($_productB->getFinalPrice(),2).'<br/>';
} ?>
<?php endif; ?>
<!-- End price discount code here -->

But it shows the code on every product. What am I missing?

You are just checking if the two product objects are the same. In order to know about the price you would need to call $product->getPrice()

if ($_productB->getPrice() != $_productA->getPrice() ) {
    echo '<p>If you were logged in,<br />your price would be:  $'.round($_productB->getFinalPrice(),2).'<br/>';
  • Outstanding. And, in addition, I needed to compare: code $_productB->getFinalPrice() != $_productA->getPrice() Thanks a million. Commented Mar 15, 2017 at 3:09
