No mention of any B2B or wholesale features?

I understand the pandemic is making D2C front and center, but why was there no mention of any upcoming wholesale features? Certainly with the Handshake acquisition there are big things coming. Can you share any upcoming features and timelines?

Other plans have different options to use shopify for wholesale:

Wholesale channel has been ticking along strongly is there some feature you think is missing?

 

Have you searched or discussed it in the Wholesale forum?

Thanks for the suggestion, I will join the conversation over there.

 

I think the current state of Shopify wholesale is solid. However,  the acquisition of Handshake indicates Shopify believes there is room for wholesale improvement. My question as it pertains to (re)unite is to gauge if wholesale development has been de-prioritized due to the pandemic led acceleration of D2C strategy. But overall excited to hear what's coming down the wholesale pipeline.

Handshake is already doing what it was meant to https://www.handshake.com/ is it not?

 

De-priortized? Naw but everythings definately been re-priortized.

If your on a Plus plan always reach out to your MSM first about roadmaps.

I always find it weird that you have a baked in solution that you get charged an arm and a leg for or you can have a weaker idea or solution by going outside the solution. Like Dropbox it'd be nice to see high-end solutions slowly make their way down to the regular plans as their cost of development is recouped then turned over to the masses. Just a local shop here but we do wholesale/retail & b2b, just not at the economies of scale of the big dogs, but we're not allowed to play because the pay is just too high.

 but we're not allowed to play because the pay is just too high

Be sure the pay isn't high simply because you refuse to play a wealthier game.

 

Enterprise features have a premium for a reason, no matter the business if you choose to not invest in costly tools you don't get the benefits.

If you do high enough volume features like reduced transaction fees alone can be worth it , then there's the other non-wholesale platform features you get access too and the soft features like training ,community access, a MSM,etc etc.

You can either walk in the door or keep looking through the window.
