Elle here from Shopify!
Would you be able to clarify your ideal workflow? Are you hoping to have your customers upload CSV files which will then be turned into Shopify invoices? If so, do you need these invoices to be sent directly to the customers for immediate payment or do you have terms set for payment?
It may be worthwhile to check out our wholesale apps as opposed to order export apps! You can view them all here.
Looking forward to hearing back from you so I can give you additional recommendations!
Hi, Elle, thanks for your reply!
My customers now send us excel document daily, and we need to refine the format and then upload by some tools to Shopify, after generating orders, we ask them to pay in their account.
so, Invoice if can work, it would be better, while first, we hope our customer can do the upload work themselves as we have more and more customers. And if can jump to payment page would be great!
I check some of the wholesale apps, did found one can have the above functions. could you please give me some suggestion.
Hi again, @coolzmm
Thanks for those details!
If you are hoping to have your customers import a file and then be redirected to a page for payment, could you not have your wholesale customers simply add products to their cart and checkout?
Perhaps I'm unaware of the specific details you're collecting through the excel file. If my suggestion above will not work for you, can you let me know why? The more context I have the better!
Thanks, Elle, Let me explain the detail, My customer is some other B2C App customer, we supply many products to them.
When they get orders from their customer, they will make the order from us. While every order may contain over 50-100 different products, so it is hard to add to cart one by one. so they prefer to use CSV or excel to give order to us. or use API to push orders to us
Thanks so much for letting me know!
The most efficient way for you to handle this would certainly be through the API. I'd definitely recommend speaking with our Shopify Experts as they can assist in building a private app for you.
If you have any other questions just let me know!
I have the same use case. I'd like to offer a B2B customers the ability to enter my Shopify site and populate the cart via CSV upload (or otherwise place bulk 100+ line item orders). We have wholesale customers that do this regularly. If we had this and offered a small discount to the customer, they'd take care of the order entry themselves. As-is, they email us a PDF, then we end up hand-transferring it to Shopify one line item at once. We'd prefer to nudge them to place the order themselves.
