hi there,

 

we're looking to launch a wholesale section for our website and are wondering if it is worth upgrading to Shopify Plus, although that seems to be a very spendy proposition. However which APP should we use?

 

  • we need to have a password protected section
  • we need to categorize customers
  • we also want to offer wholesale pricing based on various levels of customers
  • we want to display original pricing (have it crossed out) on the product page as well as the new discounted price based on the customer level
  • we want to offer net-terms upon check out (additional discount if immediately paid though)
  • we want to offer shipping options (pick up, define shipping cost later, LTL,...)
  • it needs to manage inventory within Shopify
  • we need to be able to differentiate financials between wholesale, end consumer and total
  • it needs to work with Katana MRP

if anyone has any additional points we should consider please let us know.

 

if you have any experience with either solution please let us know what your thoughts are!

 

have a great weekend,

Evert

Mike,

 

thanks for your reply... I'll check your site out and will be in touch. But at this point we are just looking for other wholesalers and their experience.

Hi Evert,

 

No problem I can probably put you in touch with some of our existing clients if that would be of help as I'm unsure how many of the kind of people your looking for will be active on here

 

Cheers

Mike

Hi @greiseve, in similar reasons (e.g. storewide VIP discount), I recently spent some time to research so leave this comment.

 

The shopify apps offering many b2b pricing apps (aka customer tagging based discount) requires a lot of customizations in your theme and asking too much permissions (they asked staff permission) which I feel uncomfortable. As you mentioned, Shopify Plus offers Script Editor in Checkout so you can easily apply customer tag based pricing without changing your themes. I ended up applying Shopify Plus now and I hope this works well.

@seriously thanks for your feedback. Much appreciated. I love what I see from Shopify Plus but have a hard time justifying $2000 per month.

Thanks for pointing out the downside of granting access to app developers to get our themes modified!

I installed All Wholesale App. Not sure if it can meet all your needs but it is working for me. 

Are you using an app or multiple apps at this point?
