Different products shown after logging into Squarespace Commerce page.

I have a public Commerce page on Squarespace that is built for a specific public user base. It has to be public as I believe that any type of authentication that I make users go through will mean less sales from the site.

That being said, I have a sub-set of the users, let's call them leadership, that I would like to provide access to a special set of products as part of the overall larger set of products. It seems from my limited knowledge of Squarespace that I might have to duplicate the public Commerce page to include these special products for this unique user base.

I have worked with other commerce platforms before and in the other platforms you can set a group of users to see one set of products and another group of users, another group of products. This is accomplished by having one set of users log in or authentication into the site.

I have looked over the Knowledge Base and cannot seem to find out if this is possible in Squarespace.

Thank you ahead of time for any help you can provide.

Creedon; thank you for the reply.

I have thought about your solution too. The problem is that leadership will want to order the sub-set of products and the larger set of products offered to the public user base. If we go with two separate pages that means, I believe, two separate shopping carts, checkout, etc. I believe this could work but it would be better for my sales if they had access to the sub-set and the larger set. Make sense?

As @creedon has explained, Squarespace allows you to create multiple 'store' pages and apply permissions at a store 'page' level. Squarespace does not provide a way to set permissions at a 'product' level, so it is not possible to prevent access to some products within a public store page.

As an example, you could create a leadership store page containing the restricted products and then protect this store page using a shared page password, or you could use Member Areas (an additional cost option) to require users to login individually to access this store page. Whichever method you choose, authenticated users would also be able to access the public store page.
