How to implement customer specific pricing in headless ecommerce?

Hi all!

I am currently looking into the Shopify Storefront API, because i want to implement a shop with a headless approach.
The shop is a standard shop which i could implement with the Storefront API.

The only "complicated" feature should be customer specific prices for products.

For example if a customer has the tag "vip" the price of the product or a group of products should be 20$ instead of 25$.
And there should even be the option to give single customers different product prices.

I saw that there are many Shopify Plugins which do provide this kind of features, but for me none of them worked with the headless approach.

Does anyone have any experience implementing this kind of feature in a headless shop?
If someone could point me in the right direction, the help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Not quiet sure yet, either react with next or vue with nuxt.
Do you have any recommendations?

This is an accepted solution.

I use React so I'm biased in my recommendation but you can use what you're most comfortable with.

In any case the process for what you would like to do is similar across frameworks.

Here is my thought process on this:

1. Get customer tag with Storefront API.

2. Check it for 'VIP'

3. Apply. a discount code which you can also get with Storefront API

Hey there, I don't have much to add to this, but I was thinking about how this is actually a pretty genius business idea that seems like all the shops have it implemented, but actually the percentage is quite low. One way to see if your business strategy is working is to consult some of the reports done on the E-commerce industry borth worldwide and in yur coutry of residence. I hope you were able to successfully implement your idea, because I'm sure it will boost your shop quite a bit. All the best to you!
