We have a multi-store 1.19ce setup. Two stores, retail and wholesale.
What we need is customers specific to each store only, not shared. Registration for both stores is only allowed in retail store. If customer applies for wholesale status after they have registered in retail store, they can fill out a form and we then approve them. At this point we need to go to customer account config and assign them to wholesale store only. However when we try to do that it is greyed out and wont let us change the website.
If I set customer configuration to global, the customer can login to both stores. When I set the customer config to per website, the customers cannot login at all on either store.
If a customer registers for a normal account on the retail store and if I have the global customer config set to per website as default, then after they register they cannot login. When I set default customer config back to all, they can login. Totally confused here.
Can anyone share some ideas on how to do this with Magento CE?
