I have a store with 4 or 5 Catalog Price Rules that apply 10%,20%, etc. off of all products in the store. These rules are tied to matching customer groups that make up a membership program we offer with different tiers for discounts.
Currently, the Catalog Price Rules apply to all items in the store across the board - all items get the discount at the level your membership includes.
We have released a special edition product that should be exempt from all price rules, even the Catalog Price Rules that apply to everything. This product should be sold for the listed price, regardless of what membership level you are, or what coupon code you have.
I understand how shopping cart price rules work, and how to make a product exempt from discount in the Promotions tab, however no rules seem to apply to the Catalog Price Rules, and customers are still seeing this special release item for a discounted price.
In the Promotions tab, I have created various Actions that seem to only apply to Shopping Cart Price Rules and have run out of ideas on how to make Actions for exempting a product from discount apply to the Catalog Price Rules.
Is there anything I can do since the CPR takes precedence over all other discounts?
Any advice or help would be appreciated, and if this has been asked before please advise.
Thank you in advance.
