Apps for wholesale account registration?

Hello experts of the Shopify forum... Hoping someone can help here.

We are looking for an app that allows only authorised business customers access to our dedicated wholesale web store, and allows our sales people who are out on the road to manually register and authorise access for business customers.

The issue with most existing apps out there (e.g. Locksmith) is that

  • anyone can register themselves so we have no control over who buys wholesale
  • and that they must go through an email verification process (which could disrupt the sales process if the customer does not have immediate access to email).

We could allow our salespople to log in to Shopify and create accounts, but then we have to give potentially hundreds of salespeople full authorisation over our Shopify apps (not ideal but probably acceptable if there's no other option) AND we still have the issue of anyone being able to manually create an account.

In summary, we are looking for an app that does the following:

  • Allows our staff to manually create and authorise customer accounts
  • Avoids the customer having to go through an email verification process during registration

Can you recommend something? ...sales pitches welcome.

Thanks,

Max

Hello Max,

https://apps.shopify.com/supple-wholesale integrates with Shopify customer records. A wholesaler is just a tagged customer.

You can add your sales staff to your admin accounts, and grant them access ONLY to Customers. They won't access anything else.

A salesman can then create a customer record, tag it with "Wholesale" (for example, you can choose any tag), then click the top-right button to send an invite to that customer.

Customer gets a link, enters a password, and he's in the store having access to Wholesale discounts.

 

A salesman can also tag existing customer accounts, which have been already created.

Hope this helps?

Thank you Marius.

 

It looks like great software. For our purposes however it seems we cannot lock down the full store with it nor bypass the email verification process. Do correct me if there's a way?

 

Many thanks,


Max

Try the app "Login to View Price". Here's a blog post that details how we used it for our clients' wholesale functionality:
