I'm struggling with understanding my site. I need a "starting page" that has general information about my company, our trainers and the products that I sell. Regular retail items can have prices listed but then I require 2 separate LOGIN pages, where I can list "wholesale prices". I need to be able to verify a client's credentials before allowing them to "shop wholesale" and I'm not sure that is what I have created...HELP?? For password protected pages, do the clients make their own password or do I assign them a password, after I verify their credentials?
Hyde here from Shopify. That's a very interesting question!
We have a very handy guide on how to sell wholesale here. You'll see it breaks down your options into several parts:
The cheapest and most feasible options for yourself (unless you're a large business that can afford the Shopify Plus Plan) are listed below:
1. You could use discount codes, as outlined here:
You could create discount codes that are only available to certain customers:
2. You could use a wholesale app:
There's also a really fantastic app called Locksmith that I want to draw your attention to, which allows you to segment your store to allow different customers to see different bits of content or products or collections. That app is available here, and here's an overview of it's stated aim:
So you could actually create duplicates of whatever pages, products, or collections you want to offer at wholesale price and then simply decide which customer can see those duplicates.
I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
All the best, Hyde.
