Tradeify: trade/wholesale app

Hi all,

I'm in the process of developing an app to *hopefully* control access to specific variants of a product which represent wholesale/trade pricing. I am developing this app for a current client but I hope that it may prove useful for the community as a whole.

Theory: to use Shopify's customer CRM data for user accounts (combined with a tag/indicator if a customer qualifies for trade pricing), and a variant option to indicate whether a product variant is trade price or regular/public price. Authenticating will then hide/show relevant pricing.

I'll be posting progress (read: general puzzlement and confusion) here and hopefully folks can let me know if I'm going in the right direction and I welcome any suggestions/feedback.

Wish me luck! :)

Keir,

Nice timing. We just got a request for this feature. What do you think the timeline is for release?

Hi @shotwell,

Thanks for your interest! ...however I wouldn't hold out for this at present, I'm afraid - my current client does not require it from outset, so I will be developing it in and around projects instead.

The Gatekeeper app may be your best bet for now: http://apps.shopify.com/gatekeeper

In my implementation, I was hoping to be able to authenticate users in some way without the use of JavaScript but it looks pretty unlikely (possibly impossible) so I'm having to change my approach slightly.

By all means keep an eye on the thread as I will update with my progress, as and when I get time to put into it.

Sorry I can't be more helpful at the moment :(

Hey there, good luck with what you are building. I am sure it is something that will be helpful for all the users. If you require any assistance or support then I would recommend an Ecommerce Development Company in India - Web Destiny Solutions.
