New to shopify, store launching soon, I hope. I sell mostly wholesale, looking to expand into retail. For wholesale, I would like to have only wholesale accounts, which must log in, see wholesale prices at the product/variant level. I can't seem to find a solution. What I do find is wholesale prices in the shopping cart, which will be a problem of my accounts - they want to see prices when viewing the products. Password protecting pages w/wholesale prices would work, but the recommended solution is the same pw for all accounts - unacceptable! I need to pw protect wholesale prices!
I think my ideal solution would allow me to set a retail and wholesale price at the product/variant (hopefully not duplicate products/variants) and display the wholesale prices only to accounts 'approved' as wholesale (by me, in the customer via setting in the customer profile?)
Does such an app exist? Is there a better easier way?
Thanks to all!
Yes, there is a better way to hide prices (different wholesaling tiers) but it does depend on how many wholesaling relationships you have. (Ideally if you are growing quickly, Shopify Plus is the best way to go, ~ around $2.0m revenue)
Until that point you can use a combination of:
This does require a bit of technical knowledge to enable the integration. The end result allows each of your wholesaling clients to view products with their specific pricing based on your contracts. Clients do need to create an account and be approved by you. Clients would have a unique login and unique password (clients will not be able to see anything outside of their pricing tier).
We are currently building the same integration for a client seeking similar functionally which I should be able to share with you in the 1 -2 weeks.
You can reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or concerns about wholesaling with Shopify.
We've had more then a few inquires about the protected pricing and wholesaling capabilities on Shopify without becoming a Plus member.
I know this is a couple of months old, but wanted to reach out!
We have just launched a new B2B/wholesale sales channel app called "Wholester" that operates entirely separately of your online store, so approvals, pricing discounts, and all other wholesale features are handled outside of your retail site. Orders and fulfillment are however still managed through Shopify, so inventory management and fulfillment remains the exact same, regardless of where the order was created.
You can check it out, and take it for a spin at wholester.io, as it is free to install!
