How can I change the default group id when certain condition occurs?
For instance, the default group id is 1 which is general. But I have a new group which is 4 (memebership).
And I want to set the customer to this group when they are purchasing a club item, I have this code in
<?php if($orderHasWineClub === true):?> <?php Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->setCustomerGroupId(4); //4 being the customer group id ?> <?php endif;?>
<?php if(!$this->isCustomerLoggedIn()): ?> <li class="control"> <div class="form-group checkbox"> <label for="billing:create_account" class="required"> <input type="checkbox" name="billing[create_account]" id="billing:create_account" value="1" title="<?php echo $this->__('Create your account for later use') ?>"<?php if($orderHasWineClub === true):?> class="required-entry"<?php endif;?>/> <a href="#" class="button-cart-simple"><?php echo $this->__('Create your account for later use') ?></a> </label> </div> </li> <!-- the code of setCustomerGroupId(4) --> .... ....
But I still get general as my customer group. so I think the code is not working.
I am suing IWD_OPC onestep checkout by they way.
